Featuring a sleek new look, the HP Compaq 2710p Notebook PC is an ultra-thin convertible notebook that combines conventional notebook productivity with tablet PC flexibility. The 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen Illumi-Lite (LED backlight) display delivers a lighter and more energy-efficient notebook, with the chemically-strengthened glass top providing improved durability and an enhanced writing experience, the company says.
HP also says that the HP Compaq 2710p joins the HP Compaq 8510 series and HP Compaq 8710 series which are designed for business users looking for a high performance notebook or mobile workstation.
HP Australia’s Market Development Manager for Commercial Notebooks, Jerel Chong said, “The latest business notebooks offer customers greater choice – whether they prefer ultra-portability, high performance or a notebook that combines a balance of features, HP has a notebook to suit their needs. HP has continued to drive innovation in business notebook design, with features such as DuraKeys, which are up to 50 times more resistant that competitor keyboards, and the stylish design of the new ultra-thin convertible 2710p notebook PC.”
