HP EliteBook 8460p

 

HP's new EliteBook line looks much like models in the older EliteBook line, such as the EliteBook 8440w we reviewed 15 months ago. Yes, the external skin offers a more pleasing brushed aluminum aesthetic, but it's still a little clunky looking. You...

Good control over security and power ; Matte LCD screen is pleasing

Industrial design is a little clunky ; Speaker quality is terrible

HP’s latest EliteBook 8460p won't win any awards for looks, but it does come with a good display and keyboard for road warriors.

HP EliteBook 8460p Review

 

HP has created an excellent business partner in the EliteBook 8460p. The redesign is sleek and durable, it performs well, and lasts a long time on a charge. We also like the above-average sound quality, comfy keyboard, and smooth and accurate glass...

Sleek and sturdy design, Strong battery life, Loud SRS-powered speakers, Smooth and accurate glass touchpad, Robust security tools, Improved QuickWeb interface

Relatively bulky for 14-inch notebook, Keyboard light not very bright, Narrow viewing angles

Our informal YouTube 1080p full screen video test taxed the CPU around 17%. The 4k resolution video test pushed the CPU to around the 80% range. The video feed was smooth at this point, unlike the ProBook's i5-2410M, which showed a little lag....

HP EliteBook 8460p review: A 14in laptop with excellent build quality, performance and security features

 

There's no doubt that the HP EliteBook 8460p is an excellent little laptop. It's fast, strong and offers good security options. It's also heavy for its size though, and definitely pricey!

Excellent performance, Great build quality, Good security features

High price, Heavy for its size, Access panel comes off easily

HP EliteBook 8460p review

 

The brushed aluminium case over a magnesium chassis makes the HP EliteBook 8640p look business-like and well built, and that's exactly what this Core i5 14" laptop is. Stylish without any extreme design styling, it's crammed with ports and useful...

Powerful, packed with ports and features for the business users, good screen, better-than-average sound

Big and pricey, you may be paying for features you won't use, standard battery life could be better

The Elitebook is a great machine with lots to offer a business user. The only real issues are the weight and chunky price

Muted screen is easier on the eyes ; Multi-carrier-enabled 3G module ; SSD option brings huge performance ; Great connectivity

Keyboard LED downlamp is useless

We like what the Elitebook brings to the party. The high resolution, muted screen will be great for all-day computing, and the multi-carrier 3G module is a big boon for those who need to travel, but don't want to be locked into one particular carrier.

HP EliteBook 8460P

 

Solid build, Commendable specs, Excellent performance across the board, Potential for superlative battery life (with slice battery)

Chunky, Unremarkable screen, No backlighting on keyboard

As a business notebook, we loved the EliteBook’s solid build, its comfortable keyboard and its responsive trackpad and trackpoint. For most users, the Core i7 processor, 280 GB hard drive and 4 GB of RAM should be more than sufficient, while...
