Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

Solid and Portable

 

This is the only good line HP has. If it is HP and not an Elite I wont buy it.

The system runs cool decent on power consumption for having an I7. Has a mobile discrete AMD graphics 6470M So I would never of bought it for CAD like the guy in the other review. Sturdy hinges. Very simple tool less trap door for easy access to all...

A little heavy because of construction but I kne that going in

HP EliteBook 8460P

 

Solid system. Started off reinstalling a fresh OS removing all installed software. System runs smooth with nothing in the startup. System has plenty of punch for any application I throw at it. Not video intensive, however. System runs great with 4GB...

got it quickly

Good but not great.

 

The docking solutions are inferior to Dells. They keyboard is good. Reliability is solid. Not as thin as some faster, newer machines. A bit bulky but not as heavy as a Macbook Pro. Lots of display options but no HDMI without conversion.

speed, weight, performance

display is bad, horrible display, cramped screen

Good machine, for a home system. I have a feeling that these should be able to last awhile without any hardware problems.

HP EliteBook 8460p

 

That woudl actually be a four core processor. i7 doesn't even come in oct. Good machine, but for home users. More of an awesome media and gaming rig than for business use.

HP EliteBook 8460p

 

Very durable laptop. Performance is terrific and good software bundled in. Pretty heavy so not the best option if you want something light.

HP EliteBook 8460p

 

This is a great laptop compared previous models, fast, good performance. But excellent tool for business. Something should improve is to allow Internet connection via SIM card not only for EEUU, make it possible to Latin American also.

HP EliteBook 8460p

 

This computer is a beast. 8 core processor, 16GB RAM, 2TB hard drive. Excellent graphics card. My only issue that I have with this computer, is that the fan kicks on a lot and is very noisy. Going to look at the BIOS and see if I can turn it down.
