HP may be slow off the mark, but it seems they will eventually deliver some touch-centric Windows 8-based devices to the market.
They latest device they demonstrated is the HP Elitebook Revolve, which is a familiar design for many years now, somewhat updated for Windows 8, and also somewhat more business-focussed.
The device is constructed of Magnesium Alloy covered in soft-touch paint, weights 3 pounds, has an 11.6 inch 1366×768 screen, 256 GB Flash storage, 4GB RAM which is user upgradable and either a Core i3, i5 or i7 processor. Lastly it sports NFC, TPM and a SIM slot supporting LTE in the US and HSPA+ everywhere else. An optional stylus can be purchased separately. The laptop is rugged up to MIL-STD 810G standard.
The price has not been announced, but the laptop is not expected before March 2013.
