Beyond their base features, the HP EliteBooks bring the company's raft of security features to the table, too. Those include HP Tamper Lock, which can lock the PC if it has been physically opened or otherwise compromised. HP Sure View Reflect keeps prying eyes off of your work by showing a reflective copper finish when the screen is viewed from the side.
