HP EliteBook Revolve family of convertible laptops welcomes new Broadwell member

hp elitebook revolve is the newest broadwell laptop 810 g3
Now that Intel’s full range of fifth-generation Broadwell processors is ready for primetime at last, it shouldn’t surprise you everyone and their mother are quick to elevate Haswell-powered laptops, PCs and convertibles. The latest to get a 14 nanometer refresh is a business-friendly ultraportable called the EliteBook Revolve 810 G3.

Needless to point out this follows in the footsteps of the Revolve 810 G1 and G2, but oddly, it isn’t any thinner or lighter than second-gen EliteBooks. It starts at 3.1 pounds, according to the product page on HP’s official website that went up with little fanfare. And it measures 11.2 x 8.3 x 0.87 inches, which is almost identical to Revolve 810 G2’s numbers.

In theory, the new Intel Core chips should have allowed PC makers to squeeze them into slimmer packages, but apparently HP feels robustness is more important. And speed, and low energy consumption.

The Revolve 810 G3 looks just as durable and stylish as its predecessors, and offers Broadwell punch in Core i3, i5 and i7 configurations ranging from 2.1 to 2.6GHz. Capable of seamlessly switching between laptop and tablet modes via a rotating display, the flexible convertible also features a spill-resistant keyboard.

Enterprise-class security is one of the numerous selling points of the fresh EliteBook, with your choice of Windows 7 Professional, 8.1 64-bit, or 8.1 Pro running the software show. Equally as appealing for business users and mainstream consumers, this 11-incher accommodates up to 8GB RAM out the box, and caps off at 512GB in the solid state storage department.

All in all, the EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 breathes premium features and top-class performance through its every pore, aside from screen resolution. 1,366 x 768 pixels is the only option for adorning the otherwise good-looking 11.6-inch piece of glass, and it spoils the convertible’s wow factor a bit.

But hey, it at least preserves hope for a relatively reasonable price tag. Say, $1,000 and up? It’s a stretch, given the “entry-level” Revolve 810 G2 costs $1,299, but until HP says otherwise, we’ll allow ourselves to dream.
