HP Making of Elite Tour 2011 Roundup

HP Making of Elite Tour 2011 Roundup

Recently HP invited SlashGear and a handful of other USA-based publications as well as a few arms full of international publications to take a tour of their HP Elite PC testing facilities. What we got to see was no less than the harshest of tests on notebooks and desktop computers from their Elite line of computers, all of it in agonizingly complete detail. What we’ve got for you here, just incase you’ve missed anything, is a complete round-up of our tour. There’s also a couple of b-roll videos, one of them explaining some imploded buildings on campus, just for the fun of it.

What you can see so far in the [HP Elite portal] we’ve got are some product hands-on videos. What we’ve got for you here below is the full collection of testing walk-throughs. Lots of talking, lots of explaining, lots of looking around at what HP does to test their machines before they’re allowed on the market. Watch them all and find yourself using up the time between lunch and dinner – so of course remember to bring a snack!
