HP EliteBook 8470p: The Right Tool for the Job
Just as Santa needs his state-of-the-art sleigh to make it around the world in one night, the NORAD Command Center needs the right tools to track Santa and respond to thousands of phone calls and emails from curious kids. That’s why NORAD and HP chose the HP EliteBook 8470p for this important job.
The HP EliteBook 8470p combines modern design and precision engineering, yielding a beautiful product even Santa would envy. The NORAD staff also appreciates that it has passed vigorous MIL-STD 810G testing for vibration, dust, shock, altitude, high and low temperature, temperature shock, humidity and other weather-related factors, as well as the fact that it produces high quality visuals and allows users to plug into additional monitors, so they won’t miss a moment of Santa’s journey.
