Summary: It's ok... but be careful. The unit they sent me had a generic graphics driver that crippled functionality. Over e-mail I was directed to first one, then another, driver before finding one that worked. I wonder if someone not familiar with this machine would have even realized that their machine was nowhere near its capacity. Also, the battery would not hold a charge.
Summary: I do not give five stars because I must acknowledge it is a two and a half year old model. But I bought it for tandem working with my EliteBook 8560p (its twin brother with extended keyboard and larger screen), as it is lighter and more portable on the road. Both have fast processors and 4 Gb Ram, what makes them pretty powerful (reduced math simulations from 4 hours in my old PC to 40 minutes).
