HP EliteBook 8730w Review

 

At $3,242, the HP Elitebook 8730w is a very capable mobile workstation that falls between the 17-inch MacBook Pro ($2,799) and the Lenovo ThinkPad W700 ($3,802) in portability, performance, and price. But the 8730w is heads and shoulders above the...

Stunning 15-million color display, Durable, elegant design, Strong graphics and processing performance, Strong security features

Shorter battery life than other desktop replacements, Not the brightest display in its class

HP EliteBook 8730w Review

 

The HP EliteBook 8730w is the largest workstation in HP's current lineup of business notebooks. Featuring the latest Intel processors and Nvidia Quadro graphics and available with HP's exclusive 17-inch "DreamColor" display, the EliteBook 8730w might...

Extreme processor and graphics performance ; DreamColor display is bright with vivid colors ; Reasonably thin and light for a 17-inch workstation ; Attractive and sleek design

DreamColor display is pricey, but still reasonable ; Third touchpad button sometimes gets in the way ; Less than ideal location for speakers ; Fan can run loud and push out a lot of hot air

Bottom line, if you're looking for a 17-inch mobile workstation notebook the HP EliteBook 8730w probably belongs at the top of your list

HP Elitebook 8730w review

 

It's not as slim and light - although it's much closer to the size and weight of Apple's laptop than any other, and is easily portable - but the HP Elitebook 8730w boasts a much better screen and is an able performer in our tests.

The HP Elitebook 8730w has an outstanding screen and offers a long battery life. It also provides great performance and is relatively thin. It is also very expensive, however, and despite forking out £2,500 you end up with a dull-looking workhorse.
