HP Compaq 2510p notebook

 

HP is currently the best selling notebook manufacturer in the world, largely due to its diverse range of corporate machines. The Compaq 2510p is aimed at business users looking for a fully-featured but lightweight notebook. The HP Compaq 2510p is a...

Great keyboard, lightweight, portable

Poor battery life, sluggish performance

The HP Compaq 2510p is a fairly average machine for the asking price. Sure, its light weight and the build quality are highly impressive but we were let down by the rather average battery life.

HP Compaq 2510p ultraportable laptop PC

 

The HP Compaq 2510p is a laptop built to serve two purposes - easy portability and ability to perform general computing tasks.

At around £1,500, this might seem expensive, but that's the premium you need to pay for the hard-to-achieve combination of compactness and high battery life. With time, as prices of solid state drives fall, we hope HP introduces this option here as...

HP Compaq 2510p

 

HP's no-nonsense ultraportable scores for its solid construction and some biz-friendly features, but the Compaq 2510p costs just as much as the flashy, consumer-oriented competition. Choose this ultraportable only if security concerns and IT...

Tank-like construction; excellent touch pad; includes integrated WWAN; supports Intel's Active Management technology.

Bigger and bulkier than other recent high-end ultraportables, but just as expensive.

HP Compaq 2510p Review

 

So by this formula the 2510p is classified as an ultra-light professional level notebook. The "professional" connotation means that you'll get a slightly stronger build than a consumer notebook, more security features, less bloatware, better technical...

Integrated optical drive in a package just over 3lbs ; Quality build, will be able to take the beating of typical business travel ; Very good battery life ; Good keyboard, comfortable to use despite small system size ; Professional and stylish look ;...

Issues with using the pointing stick in conjunction with a mouse click ; Poor speaker ; Slow hard drive performance ; Right palm rest gets warm

The Toshiba R500 and Sony TZ both offer LED backlit displays and an integrated optical drive at about 3lbs of weight, so I feel they're probably the most similar and direct competitors to the 2510p. I'd take the 2510p over the R500 due to the better...
