I’ve been writing lately about Lenovo’s x201t refresh of its x200t tablet with the Core i7 processor. HP is doing the same with the 2740p. The 2740p, in addition to the Core i7 processor, also now has capacitive multi-touch (like the x201t).
The 27xxp has been a good series. Indeed, my college-issued laptop is the 2710p, a few generations behind and aging, but still serviceable. So it’s likely the 2740p will continue the tradition, and be a worthy competitor to the x201t, which just became available today on Lenovo’s website.
