The Elitebook 2170p also features:

HP FitTight battery lock
It keeps your battery secure even when your notebook is subjected to shock, drops, or side impacts, reducing the risk of jostling or ejecting the battery.

Laser-precision indicators
New laser-precision indicators are virtually undetectable until the required system function activates them, keeping you informed of your HP business notebook’s system status discreetly.

HP DisplaySafe frame
A full, double-shot rubber frame acts as a shock-absorbing barrier that helps protect the display panel from scuffs and scratches caused by shock and vibration or from being packed too tightly in a carrying case. The HP DisplaySafe frame also prevents accidental contact with the keyboard or palm rest when the panel is closed. In addition, HP’s new design minimizes any openings between the top and bottom of the notebook for a better fit when it is closed.

Enhanced HP DuraCase
A strong, hybrid magnesium-aluminium chassis designed to withstand physical impact and pressure common in business and enterprise environments. Inspired by aerospace materials and construction for their superior strength-to-weight properties, the HP DuraCase yields a more rigid and robust chassis than previous generations. This translates to protection against damage and lower total cost of ownership for customers.

HP Power Assistant
It extends battery run time while allowing you to reduce energy consumption through a new, simple user interface. HP Power Assistant allows you to conserve power, accurately monitor your reported power needs, and report workforce power consumption.
