HP Intros Ultra-Thin Notebooks

Hard-core mobile corporate users and their small business cousins are the target of new business notebooks from HP, which has set its sights on an anticipated refresh of aging business fleets and the need to accommodate Windows 7 upgrades.

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 new models come as PC makers like it, 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 Windows 7 and an improving economy.
