The EliteBook 2740p carries a 12-inch multi-touch display that also supports pens, but has a more durable body than mainstream PCs like the TouchSmart 2. A combination of stainless steel outside and magnesium outside helps it meet the US military’s 810G specs for resistance to dust, humidity and vibration.

Inside, the system is also much faster and uses a low-voltage Core i5 or i7 which can last up to five hours on a single battery cycle.   While HP hasn’t given a base configuration but expects the system to start at $1,599 and carry between 160GB and 250GB of disk space as well as up to 8GB of RAM. An 80GB or 160GB SSD is an option, as is a Qualcomm Gobi modem for 3G and a new Ultra-Slim Docking Base ($299) that includes a DVD burner, DisplayPort out and eSATA.
