HP Compaq 8510w Review

 

The notebook that was provided to us is a pre-production unit, and this specific configuration for our notebook did not fit any of the preconfigured models available online, but I would estimate this laptop would cost about $2899 if ordered via HP.com

One of the thinnest and lightest 15.4” notebooks ; Extreme graphics power, top notch overall horsepower ; Extreme screen resolution with better than average vertical viewing angles ; BluRay drive is available on the more expensive models ; Good range...

The notebook also comes equipped with an HP Backup and Recovery Utility that allows you to create your own backup discs and do regular backups of your OS and data

False Advertising

 

I have been a customer with newegg for many years and have meny HP laptops. I will be interested in seeing what they do to correct this serious advertisement mistake, first on neweggs part, who were most likely unaware, but more importantly, the...

it works, comes with windows 7 pro, clean, well built, the usual excellent features of an HP 8510w, and all for under $200.00

advertised screen size is 1920 x 1200, I would have been happy with a 1920 x 1080 as listed on the internet reviews, but even after downloading all the video drivers and chipset drivers from HP, and having the computer identify the Nvidia Quadro FX on...
