Review Update HP EliteBook 8570w LY550EA-ABD Notebook

 

AMD Elite graphics. HP offers the Elitebook 8570w mobile workstat

Very good keyboard inc. backlight; Good battery runtimes; Decent system performance; Very good CAD performance depending on the application; Very good expandability and connectivity; Very low temperature development

Manufacturing flaws in the test device; Unusable Intel's HD Graphics 4000; Loud operating noise during load; Moderate interface positioning

While sufficient for some persons, I think a hybrid drive would have been a better choice instead of the default mechanical drive. The spinning disk disappoints in certain areas, boot time, read/write., While 4 GBs is enough to get by, 8 GBs of memory...

The PC industry is definitely in a state of transition right now. The biggest trend being underpowered good enough devices such as Chromebook’s (even HP has gotten into the game) or Tablets such as the iPad. The belief is that the days of over powered...
