I’ve always been a fan of HP’s EliteBooks. I have previously used an EliteBook 2740p convertible tablet that I custom ordered from HP.com with its specs maxed out back in late 2010. The EliteBook 2740p was a true workhorse laptop and great for traveling and being on the go. Now today HP is unveiling the EliteBook Revolve.
The EliteBook Revolve is of course optimized for Windows 8 with a very slick design and some impressive specs:
The HP EliteBook Revolve is expected to be available in the U.S. in March 2013 and HP will announce pricing information closer to the date of availability so look for that from them early next year.
Does it have a holster on the tablet's chassis for holding the pen like the Surface Pro has? That is absolutely essential.
Brandon, does the optional pen suggest that the device uses an actual digitizer for smooth inking support in OneNote (and other apps), or is it just a capacitive touch pen? Because, quite frankly, capacitive pens are AWFUL.
The Elitebook has been the best Tablet PC models on the market for the past 5 years now (pretty much the only good models, actually), so if they're taking the digitizer away, it would ruin it as an option in my business.
