Summary: I have used many HP EliteBook's over the years and this is by far the best in the line. The 6930's were a joke and the 8440's made huge improvements but the 8460 definitely is the winner. Excellent battery life, solid processing performance and versatility make this a great machine to have. The island keyboard is by all means they way to go. Old EliteBook's could easily have keys ripped off by simply wiping the dust off.
