Testing the business ruggedness and reliability of HP Business PCs
Military grade quality & reliability
HP's Elite series of notebooks, tablets and desktop PCs undergo US Dept. of Defense Military Grade testing.
HP Elite series business devices are built from high quality materials and are put through rigorous MIL-STD-810G testing procedures that go above and beyond what a PC may endure on a typical business day.
This commitment to quality and reliability can mean less downtime and a lower cost of ownership for businesses
Our MIL-STD-810G testing procedures go above and beyond what a PC may endure on a typical day in business and enterprise environment
The Drop test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 516.6 Procedure IV. The objective of this test was to determine whether the unit could be safely operated after being dropped from desk height. For this test, 26 drops were performed from 30 in. onto every side, angle and edge onto 2 in. of plywood over steel over concrete. Unit is powered down and checked for operation.
The Shock test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 516.6 Procedure I. The objective of this test was to determine whether the unit could be safely operated after being exposed to sudden physical shock events while operational. For this test, 3 shocks were performed across each axis and direction for a total of 18 shocks.
Sand and Dust Resistance
The Dust Resistance test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 510.5, Procedure I (Dust). Test parameters were set so that the unit was dusted with Arizona Road Dust for six hours while being operated.
The Vibration Resistance test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G Test Method 514.6, Procedure I(Non- operational) and Procedure II (Operational). Test parameters were set to simulate the following:
• Operate the unit during a 1000-mile simulation of vibrations created by a truck driving on a U.S. highway.
• Operate the unit after it has been subjected to higher levels of vibration while in storage.
Terrain, road and surface discontinuities, vehicle speed, loading, structural characteristics, and suspension system are all reflected in this simulation.
The High Temperature test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 501.5, Procedure I (Storage) and II (Operation). This test evaluated the units’ performance while it was being exposed to high temperature conditions: 60°C (140°F) operational and 71°C (160°F) non-operational. The Low Temperature test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 502.5,Procedure I (Storage) and II (Operation). This test evaluated the unit’s performance while it was being exposed to low temperature conditions: -29°C (-20°F) operational and -51°C (-60°F) non-operational.
The Thermal Shock test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 503.5 Procedure I. The objective of this test was to determine whether the unit could be safely operated after being exposed to sudden changes in ambient temperature while non-operational. The high temperature was set to be 96°C (205°F) and the low temperature to be-51°C (-60°F); three high-to-low cycles were performed.
The Altitude test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 500.5, Procedure I (Storage) and II (Operation). The altitude level simulated for both procedures was 15,000 feet (the highest equivalent altitude given within MIL-STD-810G for cargo pressures within military aircraft).
The Humidity test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 507.5, Procedure II with the aggravated temperature-humidity cycle. Each cycle was one day (24 hours); ten cycles with the temperature being cycled between 30°C (86°F) and 60°C (140°F); and relative humidity was a constant 95%.
What is Military Tested?
Mil-spec testing is widely used as the benchmark of quality for commercial products in multiple industries. Created by the U.S. government Mil-spec testing helps organisations evaluate how well a particular piece of equipment can perform in the field across multiple industries.
The standard outlines dozen's of test methods, each associated with a source of environmental stress, such as vibration, moisture dust extreme temperatures or humidity

1. Not all features are available in all editions or versions of Windows. Systems may require upgraded and/or separately purchased hardware, drivers, software or BIOS update to take full advantage of Windows functionality. Windows 10 is automatically updated, which is always enabled. ISP fees may apply and additional requirements may apply over time for updates. See http://www.microsoft.com.
2. Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. Performance and clock frequency will vary depending on application workload and your hardware and software configurations. Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
3. For hard drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 5 GB is reserved for system recovery software.
4. Testing conducted by HP consisting of full battery discharge while running a series of productivity scripts against the following applications (which may or may not be included with your particular product): Adobe® Acrobat® Reader 7.0, Adobe® Illustrator® CS2, Adobe® Photoshop® CS2, Apple® Quicktime 7.1, Intervideo® WinDVD® 8, Macromedia® Flash 8, Microsoft® Office® 2003 Pro, Microsoft® Project 2003, and Winzip® 10.0. Prior to testing, the system was fully charged, display brightness was set at 60 nits, wireless was turned off, and auto dim, suspend, hibernate, and all other programs, utilities, and services not essential to running the computer system or battery life test were disabled. Battery life will vary depending on the product model, configuration, loaded applications, features, use, wireless functionality, and power management settings. The maximum capacity of the battery will naturally decrease with time and usage.
5. Sold separately or as an optional feature.
6. Mobile broadband is an optional feature, requires factory configuration and separately purchased wireless data service contract and network support, and is not available in all areas. Check with provider for availability and coverage in your area.
