HP Compaq nw9440 Review

 

When starting my research on a laptop that fit my bill of particulars, I first looked for the internal components. After a little research on current notebook components (my last laptop was purchased back in the Spring of 2002), I decided that I did...

Very stylish business-like appearance ; Rigid, quality construction with no mechanical problems whatsoever ; Full numeric keypad is handy ; Biometric fingerprint scanner to log into WinXP is very cool ; Functionally easy to use keyboard and HP Quick...

If the 15.4-inch nw8440 mobile workstation - which was the top-rated model in our group test of laptops in Digit 101 - is too small for you, HP has released this 17-inch version.

Relatively small size and low weight. Very powerful.

Graphics chip not as poweful as Dell Precision M90's.

The nw9440 is the best mobile workstation so far, being both very powerful and truly mobile

An exceptionally capable professional tool that will be useful as part of a larger-scale deployment

Consumer review by:

Once again I wonder how CNET hires reviewers

 

Soemtimes I wonder whether CNET picks its reviewers up off the street. Why would you compare an enterprise notebook obviously built for CAD and enterprise apps to a Sony ultraportable just because the price matches? Should we also compare it to a...

Good, relatively light and powerful BUSINESS class notebook

Not free, not an ultraportable

Sweet Computer

 

Great hardware specs, especially the Quadro graphics which I need for SolidWorks.

I'm don't completely understand the HP security software, although it hasn't gotten in my way yet.

Love it

 

Great bang for buck.

The location of all the ports, particuarly the USB ports really sucks.

Great laptop

 

Numeric keypad is a big big plus for me.

Num keypad has some noticeable flex (especially under the + key).
