There is no doubt in many people’s minds that Apple computers are the best looking one can find in the market. It is thus no wonder that other manufacturers may aim for a similar look – without actually copying the designs. With the launch of the new HP EliteBook laptop computers, this might just be what HP is trying to do.
The new EliteBook laptop computers were launched yesterday, and they actually don’t look too bad. The improvement of this line is meant to produce laptops that are sleeker and more pleasant to look at. More than that, however, HP made it a point to make the production process environment friendly.
From this angle, one cannot help but admire the gunmetal finish. I don’t know about the silver piece at the spine of the laptop, though. Here’s an open EliteBook.
Specs-wise, there are three new models of the EliteBook: EliteBook 8460w, 8560w, and 8760w, the smallest one measuring in at 14 inches and the biggest one measuring in at 17.3 inches. The laptops all have full HD screens – something which is of prime importance to users these days. HP is also using DreamColor display in the two larger models. This display uses a 30-bit notebook LCD panel and provides so much more than the traditional display. Think 1 billion active colors. Think Disney and Pixar. That’s what DreamColor is all about, and you can have it with the new EliteBooks. The prices range from $1,299 to $1,899.
As to whether or not the HP EliteBooks can match the allure of Apple, we can only find out in the next months.
