HP today introduced three ultra-portable notebook computers, including a three-pound EliteBook, the smallest and lightest HP notebook with a built-in optical drive.
The new HP notebooks include the HP EliteBook 2530p, HP EliteBook 2730p and Compaq 2230s.

The HP EliteBook 2530p features the sleek and durable HP DuraCase – a brushed, anodized aluminum exterior casing combined with a magnesium alloy chassis that is engineered to pass several military-standard durability tests such as extreme temperature, dust and humidity.
The HP EliteBook 2730p is an ultra-thin, convertible tablet that – with a twist of the screen – transforms from an ultra-light notebook PC into a pen-based tablet.

The value-priced HP Compaq 2230s rounds out HP's ultra-portable notebook lineup.

The two new EliteBook models feature an optional integrated 2 megapixel webcam with business card reader software, and an integrated HP NightLight that shines on the keyboard to improve visibility in low light. A shock-resistant hard drive and spill-resistant keyboard, standard with the HP EliteBook series, help defend data against bumps, drops and spills.

HP EliteBook 2530p Notebook PC – For the business professional on the go, HP’s smallest and lightest-weight business notebook offers performance in a 3.19-pound package. (1) The 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen HP Illumi-Lite LED display is lighter than standard notebook display technology and improves battery life by up to 90 minutes.
The HP EliteBook 2530p offers the choice of an ultra-small 1.8-inch hard drive with a built-in optical drive or a higher-capacity 2.5-inch hard drive. For added protection against bang-ups, the inner magnesium shell of the notebook’s HP DuraCase is equipped with a honeycomb pattern that is thermally bonded to anodized aluminum for a solid construction to withstand active day-to-day use on the road.

The HP EliteBook 2730p Notebook PC is a high-performing, ultra-thin, convertible tablet which weighs in at only 3.7 pounds. Rotating the screen transforms it into a pen-based tablet measuring only 1.11-inches thin. New features include an integrated touchpad, tablet buttons and a jog dial. Frequent travelers can take advantage of the optional ultra-slim battery accessory that offers up to 12 combined hours of battery life. The HP EliteBook 2730p also supports a convenient, ultra-slim docking solution with an integrated DVD+/-RW drive.

The HP Compaq 2230s Notebook PC offers a 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen display and a satin, reflective, black-on-black surface. With the Wi-Fi-certified wireless local area network (WLAN) and integrated Bluetooth wireless technology, mobile professionals can send and receive emails or access the Internet – at work, at home or at their favorite hotspots. This modernized classic business notebook includes HP 3D DriveGuard, which uses a three-axis accelerometer to detect sudden movement and initiate protective action, helping safeguard the hard drive against bumps or drops.

The HP EliteBook 2530p and HP EliteBook 2730p are expected to be available by early September, with estimated starting U.S. street pricing of $1,499 and $1,670, respectively.
The HP Compaq 2230s is currently available at an estimated starting U.S. street price of $999.
