HP EliteBook 2540p empowered by Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technology with Intel® Core™ i5/i7 processor to provide superb computing performance. In addition, the 12.1” WXGA LED Backlit widescreen (1280 x 800) and Intel® HD Graphics (with dynamic frequency) graphics card provide professional image quality.

Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 processors in a lightweight tablet design provide outstanding computing performance for everyday’s business needs. It supports both stylus input and multi-touch finger gestures for easy navigation and interaction.

Together with high-end configuration such as graphics card with dedicated memory and high-resolution HD LED Backlit screen (1600 x 900), HP EliteBook 8440p and 8540p are the choices for business users with stringent requirements. 

From design to security features, HP EliteBook series takes care of business needs.

Strong, Stable and Reliable:

Inspired by aircraft construction, HP DuraCase utilises a honey-comb patterned magnesium shell within the display case that is thermally bonded to aluminium for supreme durability in a lightweight package.  The sleek, gunmetal anodized-aluminum finish complements a full
magnesium alloy chassis, HP DuraFinish coating with scratch resistance, spill-resistant keyboard with drains, as well as HP DuraKeys technology with scratch-resistance imprint create an incredibly strong case that protects the top and bottom of the notebook against rigorous use.

HP 3D DriveGuard technology is effective in detecting shock. When there is an operation shock, the hard disk will automatically stop accessing data and indicated by the LED light. As a result, critical business data can be effectively protected from damage, and thus reducing the risk of corruption or loss of data. The EliteBook was designed to meet the US MILSTD 810G requirements. These include a series of tough, military reliability tests that measure resistance to shock, moisture, dust, vibration and exposure to temperatures of up to 60°C/140°F and below -29°C/-20°F.

  • HP File Sanitizer - Permanently destroys selected files and folders so that it cannot be easily recovered
