HP EliteBook 2560p, 2760p laptop specs leaked

By on April 25, 2011, 4:23 PM
HP Fansite has unearthed the specifications of two upcoming HP EliteBooks: the 2560p ultraportable and 2760p convertible tablet. The former is the successor to last year's EliteBook 2540p and delivers Intel's full-voltage Sandy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 processors with an integrated HD 3000 graphics core, up to 16GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM, as much as 750GB mechanical or 160GB flash storage, and a 12.5-inch matte display with a 1366x768 resolution (to the dismay of folks who prefer 16:10).


The machine has a built-in DVD drive and it's unknown if this can be repurposed for secondary storage. Connectivity includes three USB 2.0 ports (one eSATA combo), DisplayPort and VGA outputs, RJ11/RJ45 jacks, audio jacks, as well as SD/SDHC card and ExpressCard 34 slots. There's also an HD webcam, spill-resistant chiclet keyboard, larger touchpad, improved speakers, and an overall slimmer profile. The 2560p has a slightly heavier starting weight than its predecessor at 3.68lbs versus 3.38lbs.

Meanwhile, the EliteBook 2760p convertible tablet offers the same processor, memory and graphics options as the 2560p, but is limited to a 250GB/320GB hard drive or a 128GB/160GB solid-state drive. It drops the 16:9 panel for three 12.1-inch 1280x800 options: one that supports pen input, another that registers both stylus and multitouch finger input, as well as a brighter outdoor display that reads both stylus and finger touches. Naturally, all are mounted on a hinge that rotates 360 degrees.


The 2760p doesn't have an internal optical drive, but there is an optional secondary six-cell "slate" battery. Interestingly, the 2760p also foregoes USB 3.0 for two USB 2.0 ports, and most of the other I/O matches the above 2560p, except it loses the eSATA combo and gains FireWire. Size-wise, the system is 0.02 inches thicker and 0.2lbs heavier than 2010's EliteBook 2740p, which started at 3.8lbs. Neither spec sheet hints at a price or potential release date, but we expect them to launch sometime soon.

So Dell and HP leak their specs, just as everyone else pretty much announces theirs. LOL.

The only thing quantifiable as a leak these days comes from an egotistical Australian, everything else is just marketing.

How on earth you came to this conclusion? I know aussies have a funny accent but a habit of 'leaking' ..... that is something new to me.

On a related note, I am looking to replace this DV5 notebook; but unfortuntely so far, only thing which fits my budget and desired specs is an HP; and that is a sad fact.

You obviously have internet access under the rock you live in. =)

Wikileaks?

Archean Archean, TechSpot Paladin, said:

Oh pardon me, I totally forgot about 'that sort of leaking'.

But look, without their 'necessary' leakings, we would not know so many bad things about some "people". By the way they are same people who I believe played big part in leakages like the one happened in the gulf last year ..... also the ones which continuously being executed by the defense industry to have better part of the cake. So I guess I may be amongst the minorty on TSF, who believe this aussie is doing the right thing.

Well, security considerations aside, his cause, or should I say, the cause of his (former) colleagues is just. He's just riding this for the fame. Wikileaks does have some merit. Assange is an egotistical prick who only cares about feeding his bloating ego, and spreading his seed. I hope that someone just dumps everything out in the open, and this jerk's 15 minutes are up. He's not keeping all of this secret so it can be vetted, he's keeping it a secret so he can stay relevant. While Manning is a traitor, and needs to get his comeuppance, its very clear that Assange just used that info to further his own goals, which are not noble, but completely self-serving.

Manning probably did it because he reached a point where he believed that there is no other way to fight this cancer which has penerated pretty deeply in the corridoors of defense establishment; which has been going out of political control in last 30 years or so; so I can't blame him entirely. I believe since 9/11's tragic events the defense establishment(s) have held politicians hostage by continuously drumbeating the 'war on terror' (which to a major extent was in creation because of this same establishment by the way). The irony is, in my view, qualitative decline in politicians is the major issue here, hence the space they are leaving because of their own weakness is now being taken over by the others.

To summarise this malise I think one can safely quote Arno J Mayer (Prof. of History, Princeton Univ.):

"America is not a republic. It is an empire. To be sure, an empire in a relatively early stage of decline---precisely because it is overextended. And while empire and republic never live happily together, this is all the more the case during an imperial sunset. In Washington politics and government are less and less democratic and more and more dysfunctional and corrupt."

And going back to topic about notebooks, I am thinking about replacing my DV5 1125EM which is over 2 1/2 years old now; and I am struggling to find one within my budget and specs I want. So far only reasonable candidate I found is DV6 6050 and I want to avoid HP, if it is possible

I don't disagree on Manning's motives, I'm sure he felt he was doing the right thing, but Ellsberg was a much more accurate example of how such a thing should be done. But a soldier is a soldier. There is no draft, there is no excuse for what he did. He has to face the consequences of betraying his country.

Wikileaks can do some good, but you always have to look at the motives of people when they do things. In this case based on everything I've read about the guy, from sources across the whole spectrum, Assange is just using doing this for his own self serving motives, which are pretty base (daddy issues being chief of them). I have no respect for the guy, and he's proven far more of a detriment to his "cause" than a benefit. Look at GeoHot, he was made out to be the hero of the little guy, but he turned out to be a spineless coward who was more concerned with saving his hide than any idealism he claimed to espouse. The only heroes that I've recently come across are those Japanese firefighters going inside a radioactive nuclear reactor, with everyone else, once you scratch the surface, they are just taking their followers for a ride.

Not sure what to tell you in the notebook department. Even if they use good components, the assembly may end up being substandard, I would probably look for the best warranty.
