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 8560p


The HP EliteBook 8560p business laptop is redesigned from the ground up, and now it has the gorgeous looks to go with its ferocious parts.

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.

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.

Hewlett Packard EliteBook 8560p Notebook Review


We see you rolling your eyes at the notion of an in-depth business notebook review, but hang with us, it will be worth the ride. HP emptied its entire bag of tricks on the EliteBook 8560p, the company's top-end business laptop that employs several...

Rugged design and brushed aluminum ; Huge touchpad with gestures support ; Lots of USB ports, including USB 3.0 ; Several useful utilities and security features baked in ; Tool-less access to internal components

Poor gaming performance ; No HDMI port

If concentrating strictly on the benchmarks, HP's EliteBook 8560p carried itself well in most of our general purpose tests and turned in the kind of performance you would expect out of a Sandy Bridge system. The Core i7 2620M doesn't offer the same...

HP EliteBook 8560p


Work hard, play hard. That should be HP's motto for the EliteBook 8560p. Though this workstation includes the typical suite of features that business users expect, it also has the multimedia chops to take off its tie and run consumer applications after...

Very good performance ; Excellent battery life ; Comfortable ergonomics ; Ruggedly built ; Extensive expansion capabilities


The HP EliteBook 8650p is a fast, comfortable notebook with excellent battery life and a host of professional-level features, without a huge professional-notebook price premium.

Business laptops: HP EliteBook 8560p


HP's EliteBook 8560p is chunky, solid and looks like a piece of industrial equipment. In a way, it is.

Not Satisfied


Good screen size and fast laptop

The Windows 7 professional disappeared after 1 month, the product didn't come with anything but the laptop, so now I don't have anything to work with.
