Review HP EliteBook 8470w Notebook

 

Workstation lite. HP expands its mobile workstation range with a

Good system performance; Good mobility qualities; Very good casing, material and build quality; Very good keyboard; Very good connectivity and expansion options; Cool case

Screen mostly only average quality and covered with a fine, annoying grid; Virtually useless keyboard lamp; Loud hard disk; Cramped arrow keys

Does not exist in the 14-inch category. Nevertheless, HP's 8470w has to compete with the established 15-inch category, which has many advantages to offer regarding screen and performance: HP EliteBook 8570w, Fujitsu Celsius H720, Dell Precision M4700...

Review HP EliteBook 8470p Notebook

 

Business and more? About a year ago we put the predecessor model,

Robust metal case; Clean processing; Good input devices; High data security; Application performance; Well cooled case

Bulky appearance; Poor contrast display; No switchable graphics

Lenovo ThinkPad T430, same CPU and stronger GPU. Dell Latitude E6430.

Strictly speaking, the HP EliteBook 8470p ($1,499 direct) is a business-class laptop. But that classification doesn't cover all of its capabilities. The EliteBook 8470p is a versatile all-around performer armed with enough firepower to double as a...

Solid performer. Sturdy chassis. Two USB 3.0 ports. eSATA port. 3-year standard parts and labor warranty

Dismal battery life. Bulky

The HP EliteBook 8470p is a solid business-class laptop armed with enough firepower to justify adding "multimedia powerhouse" and "gaming rig" to its resume. For those who don't need a ruggedly designed system, though, comparable laptops with cheaper...

HP EliteBook 8470p

 

These days, store shelves and online outlets are overflowing with super-thin ultrabooks. With so much press focused on these aesthetically pleasing portables, and business-centric models like Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon joining their consumer cousins,...

Attractive, rugged exterior ; Fairly light ; Plethora of configuration, upgrade, and connectivity options

Poor battery life with six-cell battery ; Boxy design in an ultrabook era ; No hybrid storage

Corporate customers looking for a compact, rugged laptop with good looks that's easy to upgrade should consider the EliteBook 8470p. Just note that if you want stellar battery life, you'll definitely want to splurge on an extra battery.

HP EliteBook 8470p review

 

In consumerland, that might not seem like a great configuration when you consider the £1156 price of the machine — where is the solid state drive, why doesn't it have more RAM and how come you don't get a discrete graphics card or a Core i7 CPU, we...

Nice

 

This is the best computer I've ever bought for $50,000 ; It has Windows 7, Intel HD Graphics, SSD, 8GB memory. It can do almost anything I throw at it! I planned on buying 3 of these for my family; however, they're out of stock

Screen is a tad bit small for my liking ; Took a star because it arrived a day late
