A work horse that is as agile as a thorough-bred
Date:June 24, 2012
"Whether I have right of speech I don't know, because I souped up my 8760w with everything which could be added to make it "super" or "ultimate power". Is mine therefore "run of the mill" / "standard"? No way, but I don't think these are made to be bought as "standard - cheapest possible". For that there's plenty other PC's/laptops. I wanted mine to load up fast, process most complex work (very-) fast, be constructed dependable and strong, have a fantastic screen (also screen size), have plenty of (charging-) USB (-2) connectors, have a docking station with extra memory capacity and multiple screen possibilities. And still be portable. That's my thorough-bred workhorse!
The help-desk / call-center has (apparently-) been smart enough to assign knowledgeable staff to this big ticket business focused line. Very satisfied with them.
The 6 touch-pad buttons can be tasked specifically after downloading the specific software. Somehow that didn't come pre-installed.
No more wishes for "the beast", because I got everything that I wanted, thought and expected to need.

Underpowered

"My company bought me one of these laptops to do 3D CAD work in Solidworks on. The processor is great, but the choice of GFX cards is really disappointing being that I am a ATI supporter and the choices for nVidia chipsets is not that great. Also, the packages that are available need to start at 16gb of ram, not 8gb since most 3D design software need that amount to run smoothly."

Sceptical - Promising

"After formatting the pc trice and trying different drivers the performance has improved 100%. This PC now handles 30+mb 3d Autocad drawings with ease.
I have the impression that the call center takes me seriously and they put in a great effort to resolve my issues. We are now dealing with that i need to configure all 6 touch pad buttons interdependently. Having this feature will truly transform this workstation to a mobile cad powerhouse. The issue has been escalated to level 3.
This workstation is highly recommended but the end user must be patient to get all setup for his own individual needs and software combinations."

"Performance in large auto cad 3d drawings is way below what I expected. At this stage i can compare it to my old dual core. Drawing is jerky and has frozen twice thus far. Have used different display drivers and the performance had improved. Hopefully in time all the glitches will be sorted."

Great laptop
Date:October 9, 2011
"I already own an hp elitebook. I bought it 3 years ago and It still works as new.
The thing I noticed is that all the new elitebook models have no HDMI port and that is sad.
So, 4 stars instead of 5 from me.
