Business-focussed HP EliteBook Revolve coming in March 2013

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.

    It is sad though. Almost 1.5 years notice and 4 advance previews and yet, 80% of OEM’s still could not deliver on target?

    Capital SMH!

    If it had, up to a 1440p option, up to 8GB memory option, up to 512GB SSD option, up to 2.0 Ghz i7 (I assume it uses the ULV cpu’s..?) that will really help this device to stand out.

    But the march date really does suck.
