Review HP EliteBook Revolve 810 Convertible
Convertible, premium-style. Hewlett-Packard presents us with a strong contender for the market segment of convertibles, a wolf in magnesium clothing. An ultrabook chassis, mobile internet and sturdiness are supposed to win over its potential customers.
The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 is a convertible aimed at business customers, combining a compact laptop with full tablet functionality. According to Hewlett-Packard, our test device is not only supposed to deliver great performance and superb battery life, but also comes with a sturdy case. It is mostly made from a magnesium alloy, satisfying the US military standards according to MIL-STD-810 for the categories falls, vibrations, concussions, soiling, height and high as well as low temperatures.
In terms of security, the Revolve comes with a number of features, starting from the OS, Windows 8 Pro, which comes with additional security options while also being capable of connecting to networks with a domain. Hard drive encryption can be done with Microsoft’s BitLocker or via Absolute Data Protect. In addition, HP offers a number of useful functions such as BIOS Protection, SpareKey, One-Step Logon, DriveLock and HP Client Security for free.
On the hardware side, the 810 ships with a Trusted Platform Module 1.2 and a Kensington lock. That’s it – neither a fingerprint reader nor a Smartcard slot is available, not even as an optional upgrade.
The touchpad is 92 x 48 mm large. It feels great and sports superb sliding properties. Input commands are registered reliably and fast, with well-working mouse click areas which offer prompt feedback. Multitouch gestures are supported as well. A double tap in the upper left corner deactivates the touchpad (indicated by an integrated orange LED), while a second double tap reactivates it.
The capacitive glare-type display can handle up to ten fingers simultaneously. Sliding across it works reasonably well, but the haptics could be better. There is no support for a digitizer.
Due to its rather low resolution of just 1366×768 pixels, all icons and input areas are amply-sized, allowing precise touch controls even while working in Desktop mode. In addition, there is always the physical Windows button below the display, especially useful in tablet mode. At the edge, a rotation lock and the volume rocker can be found.
