HP EliteBook 2740p: A Tablet For The Prosperous

HP isn’t pulling any punches with EliteBook 2740p.  Targeted at wealthy businessmen and high-end loving executives, it is designed to meet the highest workspace standards.

Those whose hearts are weak to gadget envy, stop reading.  The specs are outlined as follows:

  • Intel Core i5/i7 CPU
  • Up to 8 GB DDR3
  • Intel HD Onboard IGP
  • 320 GB HDD or 160 GB SSD
  • 12.1” Screen w/ 1280×800 Resolution
  • Multitouch capacitive and pen input
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 3 USB 2.0 Ports
  • 2 MP Webcam
  • 5 Hour Claimed Battery Life
  • Windows 7

It is indeed a very nice convertible tablet/ultrathin.  And to make up for that, it comes at a $1599 starting price.  It is worth a look, and surely if you can afford it I must imagine it will serve you quite well.  The rest of us will have to survive without it.

Super-Thin Linux-Based CZC C9 Netbook Runs For 9 Hours

The Chinese CZC C9 netbook has to be setting some kind of record for its size, coming in at 50 mm and a mere 750 grams. Yet, somehow, it still manages to look clunky:

Running an ARM11 processor, the CZC C9 has an 8.9″ display with a standard 1024 x 600 resolution. It has 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, USB ports and VGA.

Nicely enough, the machine can run for 9 hours on a single charge. Some of the credit for that may go to ShenZhen Zichuang Technology’s customized Linux OS, trimming some fat from the system. For a mere $220, this Spartan netbook might just hold the interest of some cost cutters out there.
