HP EliteBook 8560w review

 

You don't buy the HP EliteBook 8560w for its slightly pyramidal profile. You buy this high-end laptop for its workstation performance. Not that the 8560w is unattractive, but its looks fade into the background when you consider our test configuration's...

Though the display is a bit small for the chores users normally perform at a workstation, the HP EliteBook 8560w is otherwise a very capable unit, and it's affordably priced for its ilk.

HP EliteBook 8560w: A Fast, Midsize Workstation for Professionals

 

You don't buy the HP EliteBook 8560w for its slightly pyramidal profile. You buy it for its workstation performance. Not that the 8560w is unattractive, but its looks fade into the background when you consider our $3839 test configuration's WorldBench...

Great connectivity and ports ; Excellent performance

Lower detail modes required for 1080p game play ; Screen is small for 1080p

A record-setting WordlBench performance is backed up with excellent features, but the 15.6-inch display is small for its 1080p resolution.

HP EliteBook 8560w

 

HP's newest mobile workstation, the HP EliteBook 8560w ($1,579 direct), proves that there's just no replacement for a fully featured workstation laptop. Plenty of professionals can get by with a standard business laptop, but engineers, architects, and...

Intel Core i7-2630QM processor and ISV-certified AMD graphics. Business-rugged construction. Touchpad is large and luxurious. Multiple options for connecting external displays. HP packs a battery of tools to manage and protect your laptop

Pointing stick is stiff, lacks traction. Mediocre audio

The HP EliteBook 8560w is the go-to workstation laptop when you need performance and power to spare. It offers quad-core processing, ISV-certified graphics, and a laundry list of top-notch features.

HP EliteBook 8560w

 

The HP EliteBook 8560w is a beautiful piece of engineering, providing you can afford it.

DreamColor IPS screen is sensational ; Touch pad is a delight ; Backlit keyboard ; Great amount of power ; SSD is a decent performer

Status lights on the lip of the laptop make them unreadable while in use ; Short battery life ; You'll mortgage your life to own the high-end SKU

The HP EliteBook 8560w is a beautiful piece of engineering. We only hope that one day — no doubt far, far in the future — this level of quality can bleed down to lower-end machines.

What drugs are you on? How is an 18.3" 5.4Kg laptop an alternative to this???
