Inspired work deserves inspired design.
This is where reliability truly meets breakthrough design. Our intense attention to detail means precision-engineered Elite PCs offer a sleek, executive look as well as carefully chosen components like robust steel chassis and impact-sensing 3D DriveGuard technology to protect your investment and enhance productivity.
Elite Design, inspired by aircraft engineering. And we're not just talking about the speed.
Magenesium Alloy Chassis
The magnesium alloy chassis is 18 times stronger than a plastic case, providing excellent protection for the system board, hard drive, optical drive, and other key components.
Titanium alloy-reinforced latches
The titanium alloy-reinforced display latches have been redesigned for 2011 for added protection against shock and side impacts.
The display enclosure comprises an outer layer of bead blasted aluminum that is bonded to a magnesium inner shell for strength and stiffness.
The new palm rest assembly is a single piece of anodized aluminum, providing extra rigidity right where you press down the most.
HP DisplaySafe frame uses double-shot rubber frame to protect display from scuffs and scratches.
HP SMART IV technology
HP's SMART IV Technology notifies user and IT departments of impending errors.
Up to 32 Hours1 of Battery Life. That's battery life, afterlife and next life, all rolled into one. (We must have some seriously good battery karma.)

Elite Security: speed, support and battery life don't mean a thing without it.
HP 3D Driveguard
If you drop your EliteBook, its internal accelerometer is designed to sense it and automatically stop the hard drive and park the drive head to minimize damage.
Perfected over the last 6 years, this suite of software encrypts your hard drive, permanently deletes unwanted or discarded data2, and restricts unauthorized access. 2,3
Smart card keyboards, power-on and drive-lock passwords, and facial recognition2 systems help your Elite PC establish the identities of authorized users.
HP BIOS pioneered fan speed settings, wake-up and shut-down options and allows you to disable your USP port at will.
