HP EliteBook 8470p

 

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...

Review HP EliteBook 8470p Notebook

 

Business and more? About a year ago we put the predecessor model, the 8460p, to the test. The manufacturer HP now introduces the EliteBook 8470p as the successor, although it has the same old look, the internal components have been revamped.

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

Bulky appearance, Poor contrast display, No switchable graphics, The EliteBooks have gotten big, fast

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 business notebook

 

Stacks of built-in features, fast performance and a good support plan make this a worthy business machine

Performance ; Solid build quality ; Good keyboard ; Lots of built-in features

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...

HP's EliteBook 8470p offers stacks of built-in features, security options and connections to the past. It's a solidly built business machine with great performance and it feels comfortable to use. We just wish it had a higher resolution screen and...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Laptop at a Great Price!

 

These are refurbs so there will be variance in the condition , but I am very happy with mine. They run a little hot (60 to 70 degrees for the CPU), but nothing close to dangerous levels. So if you are computer savvy, you can do what I plan to...

Great Price ($169.99 after rebate) I have been looking for a solid work laptop at a great price and after striking out with another Newegg refurb (Fujitsu Lifebook) was pleasantly surprised with this one. It is a refurbished Grade B, which had me...

None so far!

Consumer review (newegg.com)

mine came with a wrong psu.

 

very happy with mine, throw in a SSD and you have a super fast laptop for super cheap.

works perfectly with a spare hp 90 watt psu I had. came with a faster 2.7ghz processor Mine also have a nice skin on the laptop. battery charges and works great. upgraded to win-10 "FLASH BIOS FIRST"

I need to call and get newegg send me out a different psu. You need to flash the bios on thse to the latest or windows 10 will not work right, I have purchased about 6 of these.

Extremely unhappy with this purchase

 

Got the first one of these and it was dead out of the box. Got an RMA and sent it back for replacement. Received the 2nd one 7 days later and once again, dead out of the box. I will need to send this one back also for replacement and have to wait 7...

Doesn't run
