Like many major PC hardware companies, HP is busily pushing out new products in hopes of cashing in on an industry-wide system refresh. In HP's case, it's today introducing two new HP EliteBook models -- the 2740p and 2540p -- and a quartet of new HP ProBook notebooks aimed at enterprises and smaller businesses, respectively.

The new ultra-light notebooks offer new features like Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and some firsts, like HP's first touch-enabled convertible business notebook; and models available with full, standard-voltage processors for added horsepower. HardwareCentral has the story.

HP is expanding its line of business notebook PCs with a slew of new models aimed at both enterprise and small- to midsized business buyers.

The company on Monday unveiled two new additions to its business-rugged HP EliteBook lineup -- the EliteBook 2740p and 2540p -- as well as four new HP ProBook notebooks in a new standard-series ("s-series") line.

HP's (NYSE: HPQ) new models come as PC makers like it, Dell (NASDAQ: DELL), Lenovo, and others are aiming to cash in on what many industry observers expect will be a wide-ranging refresh of aging business systems thanks to Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows 7 and an improving economy.
