Holding on to the new HP EliteBooks

Here’s a couplea in-action shots from HP’s two new EliteBooks, the 2730p and the 2530p. That swively (180 degrees) silver one up there is the 2730p and it weighs in at 3.7 lbs. It weighs a bit more than the 2530p, (3.19 lbs) but felt a lot better in the hand. That’s just me though; I like things to feel a little more sturdy than most people do. I got big hands, ya know.

Both notebooks should start shipping in early Sept. Price starts at $1499 for the 2530p and $1670 for the 2730p.

We hit these up earlier this week, but I wanted to give you a real-world look and not some studio glamour shot. Click on through for a shot of the 2530p.
