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...

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

 

Very robust feeling laptop with stylish business look. Powerful enough for Microsoft Flight Sim Steam Edition with PMDG add ons. Laptop arrived in 24hrs as indicated to a collect+ point. Handy.

Poor website product spec that has conflicting info. I really should get a 25% refund. (1) Twice, in the headline box and detailed spec states an i5-3470 processor, which has a CPU benchmark PassMark score of 6613, which is what I was hoping for. Well...

HP Elitebook 8470P

 

Solid construction, hope the implication is it will last.

Wouldn't have purchased if I'd realised the Optical drive was ROM only. Thought I saw DVD RW on the ad but I looked at so many I might be confused!

HP Elitebook 8470P

 

Its got a good cpu intel i5. I did not use the laptop as it was sent back same day, build quality is strong and looks like it can take a lot of use

Very heavy, bulky. This particular one , i sent back due to very poor cosmetic condition so did not test so cant recommend this one but if in good condition then its a good laptop at a good price.
