HP EliteBook Revolve - a new convertible tablet with Windows 8 Pro

Published on by batterylicious.com

 

The rise of the convertible tablet continues with the news that HP is preparing to launch a Windows 8 model, the EliteBook Revolve, in March of next year.

Bearing a close resemblance to Lenovo’s ThinkPad Twist, the EliteBook Revolve sports a central hinge that allows it to be twisted and folded from a laptop (with a backlit keyboard) into a tablet.

 

The model has an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 resolution display and comes equipped with Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge chipset, but everything else can be customized to the customer’s needs.

 

The Revolve can be fitted with a Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, and with up to 12GB of RAM as well as a 256GB mSATA SSD. Optional extras include 4G LTE connectivity, a stylus and a compatible docking station, while enterprise-grade security software can also be purchased with the tablet.

 

The slate features an array of business-ready connections, with slots for micro SD, HP pavilion dv9700 battery, DisplayPort, two USB 3.0 ports and a full-sized Ethernet jack, as well as support for NFC. A 720p videoconferencing camera comes as standard with the model.

 

HP says that the tablet can be purchased with Windows 7 Pro or Windows 8 Pro, although the latter will presumably be favored by those looking to use the touchscreen on a daily basis.

 

The EliteBook Revolve is expected to come to market in March of next year, with price details yet to be disclosed.
