Every time I think I’m done with the HP Elitebook 2760p, something new pops up. It’s like a Swiss Army knife or the Martian Manhunter packed with abilities. This time, it’s Bluetooth pairing with an iPhone or iPad for audio streaming and control. This post is one in a multi-post review of the HP Elitebook […]

As a convertible notebook, the HP Elitebook 2760p faces the challenge of balancing its laptop and tablet functionality. At first glance, it appears to be a notebook first, tablet second. But upon closer inspection, I’ve found much attention was paid to the tablet experience. This post is one in a multi-post review of the HP […]

I’m no proponent of biometric security. I’ve long argued that it’s a convenience, not a true security measure. Of course, convenience is a nice feature to have, and the facial recognition login on the HP Elitebook 2760p Tablet PC is amazingly effective.

Camera specs like resolution and fps are good to know but don’t necessarily tell you how good the video and photo quality is. Thus, I thought it would be helpful to share some actual photo and video recorded from the HD webcam of the HP Elitebook 2760p. And I spiced it up a notch by […]
