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 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

Price

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.

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...

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...

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.
