I wouldn't have bought this knowing what I know now...

Summary: I got one of these HP EliteBook 8560p's in November 2011 (for work--purchased by my employer). I'm glad I didn't buy it myself. It's crashed several times since I got it and the sound card is a piece of crap. Other than that, it's fine. But I have a 7-year-old Dell laptop that still works well and has never crashed--and it has better sound from its sound card.
Summary: hp has had issues with their build quality / quality control as of late. Just take a look at my experience with the HP Pavilion dv6-6140us Entertainment Notebook PC (Silver) . When my employer informed me that I was getting a new PC, I was hoping it would not be an hp. When the package arrived, and I saw the hp logo, my heart sunk. I got one of these hp EliteBooks. My model is the 8560p, with an i7 Quad Core (2.7GHz), 500GB HD, & 8GB of RAM.
Summary: Everything was as described. This laptop is everything I thought it would be. Absolutley loving it! If there were any cons, it would be a lack of documentation explaining ALL the features of this laptop. It is a little heavy, but very minor issue for all the benefits this laptop provides.
Summary: I am on my SIXTH computer of this same model. They have all had serious problems: from hard disks that went bad, to cracked case, to the mouse/pad wearing out. Obviously HP can not build a reliable laptop: they are exiting the entire marketplace...which is probably a good thing. Avoid this PC at all costs. NO, I do not own a Mac; have had a PC for the past 20 years.
Summary: The Elite book 8460P is an Excellent computer at an affordable price. I have 2 and was ordering another one, (First time from Amazon, for this specific computer) and had plans to order even more. Lots of number crunching power, great speed, good graphics and the company (Where I work at) uses hundreds of them. BUT the Amazon merchant "onSale" refused to complete my order, as they didn't think the UPS store (In Pompano Beach, Fl.
Summary: I can not find a button to turn off the mouse pad. I didn't find useful the mouse in middle of the keyboard, which also makes me do typing errors when using letters around it. Expected to have lighted keys. I prefer the 15"4 screen. Also heavier than expected. As for the performance is very good.
Summary: Very good computer-recommended! Installation work flawlessly- HP set these things properly- driver update procedure. You might pay a little bit more, but you get the things- you enter and start to use good system. What is a bit disappointing is the graphic card or drivers available for this graphic card. It handle the resolution promised> 1600 x 900, but when you try to connect external, higher resolution IPS you are not able to get 1920 x 1200.
Summary: This computer is sexy, the brushed case in satin grey is great, the keyboard is tactile and positive, the dvd unit is first class working very well and almost silent when running. I fitted the extra memory 8gb and loaded all I could from games to video HD of course films, sound - you name it I have thrown everything at it and this machine is just flawless in its performance and speed. The 3g facility is amazing and Bluetooth is seamless with my other kit.
Gutes Produkt - allerdings Problem mit der Netzwerkkarte

Summary: Das Produkt funktionierte einwandfrei - bis auf eine Fehlfunktion bei der Netzwerkkarte: Eine Kabel gebundene Web-Verbindung scheiterte. Die Systemsteuerung zeigte auch nach Installation des neuesten Treibers für die Netzwerkkarte den gelben Warnhinweis für eine Fehlfunktion (softwareseitiger Fehler). Durch gute Unterstützung des liefernden Unternehmens konnte das Problem nach ca. 2 Wochen behoben werden.
