We’ve mentioned a lot of stories and news about the HP Compaq 2710p, HP’s newest ultraportable Tablet PC/Laptop convertible, but not much about its companion non-converting laptop, the HP Compaq 2510p. The 2510p is the sequel to the HP Compaq 2400.
The HP Compaq 2510p has a 12.1″ widescreen display and is based on Intel’s Santa Rosa Platform with an Ultra Low Voltage Intel Core 2 Duo U7500 or U7600 CPU. For graphics, it has the integrated Mobile Intel GMA X3100 chipset. Even with an intergrated dual-layer DVD writer, it still weighs in at under three pounds.
NotebookReview.com has published a review of the 2510p. With the Ultra Low Voltage CPU, it’s expected to do well when it comes to battery life, but Andrew at NotebookReview.com got excellent results: With the 6-cell battery with wi-fi on and screen brightness at half I got 6 hours and 20 minutes of usage. The review is noteworthy, as he took several temperature readings all around the laptop.
