Meet the 11-inch HP EliteBook 2170p: HP’s Smallest Business Notebook

Yes, HP just announced the EliteBook Folio 9470 Ultrabook, but what if you want something even smaller? The EliteBook 2170p, the smallest business notebook in the company’s lineup, features an 11.6-inch screen and a starting weight of just 2.9 pounds, making the laptop extremely lightweight and travel-friendly.

Taking design cues from the HP EliteBook 2560p, the 2170p has a platinum-colored Duracase design with a bead-blasted aluminum finish, making it both stylish and business-rugged. Despite its small frame, the 2170p features a full-size island-style keyboard that’s also spill-resistant, along with a pointing stick. There’s also an optional backlit keyboard. The notebook also has a 11.6-inch  1366 x 768p LED backlit anti-glare with a 720p integrated webcam.

In an effort to improve sound quality, HP has included SRS Premium Sound PRO promising crisp, clear audio. Ports include two USB 3.0 ports, a 5-in-1 card reader, DisplayPort, Ethernet, a docking connector and a combination headphone/microphone jack.  The notebook will also feature a 6-cell battery that HP claims will get up to 8 hours of battery life.

While it has been confirmed that configurations of the 2170p will feature a third-generation Intel Ivy Bridge processor, HP has yet to disclose exact specs. The base configuration of the 2170p costs $999 and will become available on June 22.
