Given that 2010 looks set to be the year of the tablet computer, letís kick off March with the appearance of the HP EliteBook 2470p convertible laptop/tablet, a new fresh-faced business-skewed offering eager to secure some time in the spotlight before a certain Apple iPad hits the market.

Sporting a stainless steel exterior and a durable magnesium chassis, the 12.1-inch Elitebook 2470p is powered by a choice of Intelís new Core processors (either Core i5 or Core i7) and also includes a swivel-friendly display, a touch-screen user interface (UI), and a handy stylus pen for easy navigation.

Beyond its main internal and external points of attraction, the EliteBook 2470p differs from other category contenders thanks to the inclusion of rugged military-grade resistance to high temperatures, dust, vibration, and altitude. It also comes with HPís DriveGuard technology to provide the hardware with additional impact protection.

Other features and functions include a choice between Windows 7 Professional, Windows XP tablet edition, Windows Vista Business, or FreeDOS. The system also carries support for Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows Vista Enterprise.

Interested? Expect the HP EliteBook 2740p to hit the market before the close of March attached to a starting price of $1,599 USD.
