Flexible performance options
Configure the HP EliteBook 2540p to best meet
your needs. Choose a full-performance, standard
voltage processor and a 7200 rpm HDD for
maximum performance. Alternatively, gain the
convenience of an optical drive or a secondary
hard drive by opting for a low voltage processor
and a 5400 rpm HDD. Both configurations offer
Intel vPro™ technology 1 so you can remotely
monitor, diagnose, and repair PCs over the
network, even if a system's OS is inoperable or it
is powered off. The HP EliteBook 2540p also
offers multiple battery solutions for maximum
flexibility.
Improve your view

to connect to external displays and gain sharper,
deeper images

Starting at only 1.5 kg, the HP EliteBook 2540p
features a brushed aluminum display enclosure

rugged construction and HP DuraCase help
protect your notebook from wear and tear. It is
designed to meet tough military standards
(MIL-STD 810G) 2 for vibration, dust, humidity,
altitude, and high temperature. The spill-resistant
keyboard with drains helps protect sensitive
electronics and key components from minor spills,
while HP DuraKeys 3 protects the finish on the
keys.
HP Professional Innovations help you focus on
your business

capability of e-mail, calendar, task and contact

consumption. Designed with the environment in
mind, the HP EliteBook 2540p is made with a
