Summary: This is a refurbished laptop, so you never know what you will get. I received a good elitebook 8460.
Pros: The Laptop came much faster than was expected (2-Day USPS Priority Shipping). The laptop came with everything I wanted. Seems to be in very good condition. I have not found anything wrong with it.
Cons: The HP Arrow keys are annoying, and the track pad sometimes doesn't register my moving. Otherwise, I can easily get over the keyboard. These were all expected issues.
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.
Cons: The 'pointstick' is useless. Does anyone still use those? Also, there is no backlit keyboard...HP installed a light at the top of the monitor that is supposed to illuminate the keyboard... it really only illuminates the F9 key, not really practical.
