   HP 3D DriveGuard 2

Helps protect your notebook's hard drive against impact, bumps, or drops. Your critical information is easily protected while you are on the move. The HP 3D DriveGuard relies on a three-axis digital accelerometer that acts as a motion sensor, notifying the system software of any sudden movement and temporarily parking the hard drive. An LED light indicates the drive status.
* Available on select HP ProBook and EliteBook models.

   HP DuraCase

All HP EliteBook Notebooks include HP DuraCase, an innovation that includes a number of durability features to help protect the notebook from wear and tear. These complementary features work together to improve reliability and promote durability:
•  Magnesium alloy chassis A full magnesium alloy chassis creates an incredibly strong case protecting the top and bottom of the notebook against rigorous usage. Magnesium alloy is 18 times stiffer than comparable plastic (PC/ABS) components.
•  Aircraft-inspired construction The magnesium/aluminum display enclosure utilizes an inner magnesium shell with a honeycomb pattern that is thermally bonded to anodized aluminum for a solid construction and enhanced display impact protection. Inspired by aircraft construction for its durability, precision, and lightness, it creates a stiffer more durable panel with a professional high-end finish that is still lightweight.
•  Anodized aluminum surfaces This innovative material used on the palm rest area and display enclosure is highly scratch-resistant, with a clean, sleek look.
•  Display latch The display latch tightly locks the top and bottom of your notebook when you close the lid. The reinforced metal pins and hooks help prevent the display enclosure from additional vibrations, resulting in better protection of your system against shock and side impacts.
•  Hinges and axels Metal alloy hinges with hardened steel pin axels are designed to withstand extensive use.

   HP DuraFinish

Promotes a long-lasting finish. With scratch-resistant HP DuraFinish, your notebook's palm rest, display cover, and touchpad on select models are more protected from normal wear and tear so your notebook looks newer, longer.

   HP DuraKeys

Keeps your keyboard looking newer, longer with HP DuraKeys. HP DuraKeys have a clear coating applied over the notebook keyboard that helps protect the finish and the printed characters on the keys. HP DuraKeys are 50 times more resistant to visible wear than keyboards without it3

   HP Total Test Process

Ensures you get a reliable and durable notebook that can go the distance. It includes a multi-tiered product validation process
* Available on select HP ProBook, EliteBook and Mini models.

   MIL–STD–810G Military Standards Testing

Passes rigorous MIL–STD–810G testing.1 Most HP EliteBooks are designed to meet the tough military standards (MIL-STD-810G) for drop, vibration, dust, humidity, altitude, and high temperature.

   Spill-Resistant Keyboard with Drains

Helps protect sensitive electronics and key components from minor spills by combining a thin layer of Mylar film under the keyboard with a drain system that funnels the fluid through a hole in the bottom of the notebook.

   Touch-Sensitive Controls

Controls applications with touch-sensitive controls that allow you to perform quick tasks such as adjusting the volume and engaging wireless connectivity at the touch of a button. These controls are also extremely durable because they're level to the surface, are particle-resistant, and have no moving parts, which all help enhance your notebook's reliability.
1.  Testing was not intended to demonstrate fitness for DOD contracts requirements or for military use. Test results are not a guarantee of future performance under these test conditions.
2.  Microsoft Windows required.
3.  In independent testing conducted by Trace Laboratories, HP DuraKeys showed no wear after 250,000 cycles. Competitor notebooks showed significant wear after only 5,000 cycles.
