Review: HP EliteBook 8540w Mobile Workstation

JusTech'n
14 February 2011
  • Conclusion: In the end I am impressed with the strength and quality of the of this laptop. It is put together with some top quality parts. My main concern is the battery life. A 15″ laptop is a good travel size and is going to be taken on the road, but with just under 3 hours of battery it is not going to last long if you don’t keep it plugged in. If you are a traveler I do recommend a second, or larger battery.

Recenzja HP EliteBook 8540w

18 December 2010
  • Summary: Niższa rozdzielczość wyświetlacza HD+ zastosowanego w testowanym modelu HP 8540w okazała się praktycznie jedyną istotną różnicą w stosunku do wersji z ekranem Full HD. Ogólna jakość poszczególnych elementów pozostała bowiem na tym samym (wysokim) poziomie.Oferowana przez procesor Core i5-520M wydajność jest oczywiście mniejsza od potencjału jednostki Core i7-620M, ale  zapas mocy, jakim on dysponuje, z całą pewnością okaże się wystarczający dla zastosowań w codziennej...

Análise: Portátil HP Elitebook 8540w (ATI M5800)

Notebookcheck

  • Conclusion: A tela HD+ não adiciona muito comparada com a versão full-HD.  Além da um pouco menor resolução, consideramos que ambas a versões estão mais o menos no mesmo (alto) nível de qualidade.  Estamos entusiasmados com a versão de alta qualidade Dreamcolor, cuja análise está planejada para as seguintes semanas.  Com ela, os designers gráficos e editores profissionais de fotografias, finalmente obterão o valor que pagam.
