HP's EliteBooks hover right at the edge of 'barely affordable' and 'absurdly expensive'. I'd be less upset about the painfully high prices if these notebooks weren't so damn pretty. BGR reports on the new EliteBook 2540p and the 2740p, both of which meet MIL-STD 810G standards for vibration, dust, humidity, altitude, and extremes of temperature.

The 2540p packs a 12.1” LED display, 2 MP webcam, and either a 250 GB HDD or a 160 GB SSD. It has Integrated Intel Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 NIC, b/g/n WiFi, and optional HP Mobile Broadband with GPS. The 2540p has either an i5 or an i7 processor, an optional DVD drive, and Windows 7.

The 2740p is basically the same, but it also sports a touchscreen display that can slide around to turn this notebook into a tablet. The screen has an 'outdoor view' option. Both models of EliteBook will be in stores next month. The 2540p starts at $1,099, and the 2740p starts at $1,599.
