Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The ProBooks come with 14-inch, 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch screen
sizes, with prices starting at $529. In another first for an HP
business notebook, buyers will be able to add a color finish --
"merlot" -- if they choose.
"Some models will also feature Qualcomm Inc's Gobi technology,
allowing them to use a single module to access different mobile
broadband network technologies and mobile operators.
"HP will also bring higher-end durability features, like its 3D
DriveGuard -- which protects the hard drive if a laptop is dropped
-- and a spill-resistant keyboard to the ProBook."
