Verdict

There’s not much to complain about with the 2510p; a webcam would have been a great value-add. A faster hard drive would have improved performance drastically, while reducing battery life marginally. And remember, this laptop is not made for gaming. With a one-year warranty and HP’s great support system, the HP Compaq 2510p is a reasonably good buy.

HP Compaq 2510p detailed review

 


The Tough Ultraportable



Designed from a pure usability point-of-view, this little baby is built like a tank. The construction is rugged in general, and we liked the sturdiness of the hinges in particular. It’s not as flashy-looking as its competitors, but it’s sleek, and weighs just 1.29 kg. With an Intel dual-core processor and a decent amount of RAM, while running Windows Vista Business, this laptop packs in enough power to cater to business needs. The proc-essor’s and hard drive’s focus is on increased battery life.

The 2510p sports a widescreen (WXGA). An ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness.

The keyboard is very comfortable to type on, but the touchpad is a little too smooth. There’s also a highly responsive pointer-stick. The keyboard layout is good, and just above the function keys is a line of touch-sensitive cool-blue backlit buttons for functions such as Turning On/Off wireless, Volume control, etc.

The 2510p features connectivity in the form of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi as well as Gigabit LAN—and even a legacy modem. It has a PC Card interface, SD memory slot, two USB ports and a FireWire port. You can buy the HP 2400/2500 Ultra-Light Docking Station to add more ports. There’s also a D-Sub connector so you can hook it up to a projector.

Security is taken care of by the biometric fingerprint reader and a host of utilities that can encrypt your hard drive and restrict data access to only authorised users. Even theft or removing the hard drive will not expose your data to prying eyes.

There’s not much to complain about with the 2510p; a webcam would have been a great value-add. A faster hard drive would have improved performance drastically, while reducing battery life marginally. And remember, this laptop is not made for gaming. With a one-year warranty and HP’s great support system, the HP Compaq 2510p is a reasonably good buy.
