Class is in session! Get the school year off to a smart start with HP’s comprehensive products and solutions for K-12.
HP can help you find reliable, easy-to-use solutions that fit your school’s needs, lower IT costs and heighten faculty and student productivity – so they can focus on learning, not technology.
Read on to see how HP can help transform a classroom into a hive of activity that can engage students and help prepare them for the future.
The HP 2133 Mini-Note PC gives students the freedom to learn in more places. With integrated Wi-Fi Certified WLAN1 and optional Bluetooth® wireless, students can access the Internet, email, IM, or chat1 – from the classroom to the family room and in between.
Small but mighty. It starts at just 2.63 pounds and has a profile of only 1.05 inches. But don’t be mislead by its size. Its small form belies the big possibilities it creates for students to get more done in less time.
This includes features like a high-resolution,2 8.9-inch diagonal WXGA display, a touchpad and a QWERTY keyboard that’s 92 percent the size of a full keyboard.
A lesson in durability. The HP 2133 Mini-Note PC is built to last. Its all-aluminum case makes it lightweight, sleek and sturdy for students.
HP 3D Drive Guard detects sudden movements and initiates protective action to help safeguard the hard drive against bumps or drops. And HP DuraKeys provide a clear coating to help protect the finish and key characters.
The HP EliteBook 2730p Notebook PC is an ultra-thin convertible tablet that can be great for both faculty and teachers. Its innovative design delivers the flexibility of a writing tablet plus the functionality of a conventional notebook in an ultra-slim form factor. Starting at just 3.7 pounds, you can bring brilliance, not bulk, into school.
A sophisticated, convertible design. Flip it into tablet mode and use the pen to write and navigate across the screen. Then, convert digitally handwritten notes to text or email them as they are. Simply twist the screen and you’ve got a conventional notebook.
Easy as ABC. A new jog dial makes it easy to scroll through documents and web pages. Choose from dual pointing devices – a touchpad or a pointstick. The LED 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen display and writing surface features HP Illumi-Lite LED technology for work in bright light conditions.
The mobile classroom. School days aren’t limited to one place and they don’t end when the bell rings. That’s why the HP EliteBook 2730p Notebook PC has integrated wireless technologies (HP Mobile Broadband,3 WLAN1 and Bluetooth®) to help faculty and teachers stay connected in more places.
For the rigors of a regular school day – and more. The HP EliteBook 2730p Notebook PC is designed for durability in a variety of school settings. In fact, it passes tough military standards (MIL-STD 810F testing4) for altitude, extreme temperatures and dust. It’s also built to withstand the bumps and vibrations a school day can dish out.
