HP EliteBook 2560p LY455ET Review posted on
12.5 inch Portable Notebook
This small business laptop has a lot of features for its size, and it supplies good performance via its full-voltage Intel Core i5 CPU. It could use some more standard features though, such as SSD, integrated 3G and USB 3.0, but it's still a good overall unit.

The HP EliteBook 2560p (version LG666EA) will not get the same great rating from us its predecessor, the 2540p, got. The main reason for this decision is the low TFT brightness. This is especially a problem in battery mode, when the brightness falls further and can even exhaust the user.
