Additional features

Extreme tests for extreme dependability9

The HP EliteBook family is designed to pass MIL-STD 810G tests. Add another 120,000 hours
of our own testing and end-to-end diagnostics, and you get confidence built right in.


We simulated the vibrations
of 1000 miles of ground transportation and jolted the Elite PCs in six directions
for a total of 18 mechanical shocks.

Dust Test

Our Elite PCs were dusted with Arizona road dust for six
hours while being operated
to ensure components won't fail in harsh environments.

Drop Test

We made 26 drops from
30 inches onto every side, angle and edge onto 2
inches of plywood over steel and concrete to ensure toughness.


We subject the Elite PCs to a simulated altitude pressure of 15,000 feet. Then, it is exposed to a temperature change of more than 100° Celsius.
