Some days ago I compared the new HP EliteBook and ProBook series. Now I decided to buy the HP EliteBook 8460w mobile workstation. I think this is the best option between performance and batterylife.
Here the 8460w configuration I ordered:
- HP EliteBook 8460w Mobile Workstation
- Intel® Core™ i7-2630QM Processor (2.0 GHz, 6 MB L3 Cache)
- Mobile Intel QM67 chipset
- 14.0-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD+ anti-glare (1600 x 900) with 720p HD Webcam
- AMD FirePro™ M3900 w/1 GB gDDR3
- 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (2D)
- 500 GB 7200 rpm 2.5-inch hard drive
- DVD+/-RW SuperMulti DL Drive
- DualPoint (TouchPad and PointStick)
- Intel Centrino® Ultimate-N 6300 (3×3)
- Bluetooth® Wireless Technology 2.1
- TPM & Fingerprint
- HP 9-Cell 100 Wh Li-Ion Battery
- 56K v.92 high speed modem
- HP Elite Support with limited 3 year standard parts and labor warranty 3/3/3
As I said the main reasons for me to buy this notebook, are the performance, the form factor, the batterylife and of coure the design. I am sure the EliteBook 8460p would be enought performance for me, but I really like the color of the EliteBook w-series notebooks.
Since HP will not release the EliteBook 8460w in Europe I ordered the notebook directly in the HP Online Store with my myus.com account.
