Matt display with good rates; Numerous security features; High connectivity; Great input devices; Robust case; Good performance; Recovery DVD

Noise development in load; No graphics switching; Fairly high weight; Poor battery life

Review HP EliteBook 8560p Notebook


Elegant powerhouse. The HP Elitebook 8560p-LQ589AW really stands

Classy design; Powerful CPU; Alternative OS (QuickWeb); Spill-resistant keyboard; 2x USB 3.0 ports; Matt display


QuickWeb; it should be on every laptop. Firstly it prolongs battery life, and secondly the interface is all you need to read emails, access contact details and be available via Skype when you are on the go.

HP EliteBook 8560w: A Fast, Midsize Workstation for Professionals


You don't buy the HP EliteBook 8560w for its slightly pyramidal profile. You buy it for its workstation performance. Not that the 8560w is unattractive, but its looks fade into the background when you consider our $3839 test configuration's WorldBench...

Great connectivity and ports ; Excellent performance

Lower detail modes required for 1080p game play ; Screen is small for 1080p

A record-setting WordlBench performance is backed up with excellent features, but the 15.6-inch display is small for its 1080p resolution.

HP EliteBook 8560W


The 15.6-inch HP EliteBook 8560w combines workstation-class performance with a full HD screen and durability, but is seriously expensive.

Very strong performance ; Rugged good looks and durability ; Full HD display with rich color ; Comfortable keyboard ; Three-year warranty

Expensive ; Poor battery life

The HP EliteBook 8560w provides fantastic workstation performance and a gorgeous 1080p display in an attractive and durable package. However, we highly recommend a pre-configured model to our pricey configuration. Some may prefer the Lenovo ThinkPad...

HP EliteBook Mobile Workstation 8560w (Core i7-2720QM 2.2GHz - 15.6-inch TFT)


Editors' note: Some of the features and design elements of the EliteBook 8560w Mobile Workstation are identical to the previous generation of this workstation, the HP EliteBook 8540w , so portions of this review are based on the 8540w review.

The HP EliteBook 8560w Mobile Workstation offers excellent configuration options including a color-accurate LCD, comes with great tools for fine-tuning performance and power usage, and has a tough but attractive design.

Like most mobile workstations, the EliteBook 8560w is large, heavy, and potentially very expensive.

HP's versatile EliteBook 8560w shows that a mobile workstation can be rugged and a solid performer and still look good.

HP EliteBook 8560p Review


The HP EliteBook 8560p is the latest generation of 15-inch premium business notebooks from Hewlett-Packard. This aluminum-clad workhorse is designed to serve as a mobile desktop replacement for business professionals who need cutting-edge technology...

Durable, attractive design ; Decent battery life ; Good overall performance

Not the best graphics performance on the market ; No middle touchpad buttons ; No 1080p screen option

HP EliteBook 8560p


HP's EliteBooks have always been the unsung heroes of the business notebook world. While not as visible as the ubiquitous MacBook Pro or as prestigious as the ThinkPad, the sturdy business notebooks have soldiered on in relative obscurity, relied upon...

Industrial-strength chassis and hinges ; Large, high-res display with effective anti-glare coating ; Potent processors and discrete Radeon HD graphics ; Comfortable keyboard and supersized glass trackpad ; Incredibly complete array of ports ;...

Not as light or thing as competitors ; Only four hours runtime with stock battery ; Matte display lacks “pop” of glossy screens

It's hard to do better than HP’s industrial-strength EliteBook 8560p for brute processing power, comfortable, hard-wearing controls and durability.

HP Elitebook 8560p


The panel is intensely bright and matte so that glare is practically non-existent. You can find similar anti-glare panels in the Dell E6420, Lenovo T410, and Toshiba Tecra R850. What makes the colors pop and everything else seem amazingly sharp is the...

Powerful Intel second-gen components. Extensive security and wireless feature set. Aluminum chassis. Glass touchpad. Bright, high-resolution widescreen. USB 3.0 and eSATA equipped

AMD graphics doesn't offer that big of a lift in graphics power. Less than 4 hours of battery life is mediocre these days

The HP EliteBook 8560p is a powerhouse business laptop, as its 15.6-inch widescreen and top of the line parts are there for powering through the most difficult tasks--and a modern look doesn't hurt either.

HP EliteBook 8560w


HP's newest mobile workstation, the HP EliteBook 8560w ($1,579 direct), proves that there's just no replacement for a fully featured workstation laptop. Plenty of professionals can get by with a standard business laptop, but engineers, architects, and...

Intel Core i7-2630QM processor and ISV-certified AMD graphics. Business-rugged construction. Touchpad is large and luxurious. Multiple options for connecting external displays. HP packs a battery of tools to manage and protect your laptop

Pointing stick is stiff, lacks traction. Mediocre audio

The HP EliteBook 8560w is the go-to workstation laptop when you need performance and power to spare. It offers quad-core processing, ISV-certified graphics, and a laundry list of top-notch features.

Review: HP EliteBook 8560p Mobile Workstations


The Elitebook laptop is HP's top of the line business notebook, and the 8560p is near the top of that series. The Elitebook 8560p includes several upgrade from last years model, including a faster processor, better screen, and a better video card.

In the end I am impressed with the strength and quality of the of this laptop. It is put together with some top quality parts. My main concern is the battery life. A 15″ laptop is a good travel size and is going to be taken on the road, and with just 5...
