Some really good ideas, great look, performance and the battery - touchpad is a fatal flaw

Summary: I'm a programmer, this is my third Elitebook, I owned and used extensively two prior generations of this series (8540 is the most recent). I worked long days on those computers, each one was my primary workhorse, and I shared this information in order to establish the context of my evaluation.
Excerpt: Viewing it on the specification of the i7 -processor its impressing that the dual-core CPU can clock 3.6 GHz. This computer processing power is at least as good as a quad-core if you do not multitaskar something tremendously. The computer can handle a normal users needs such as office work and photoshop image editing. More demanding work such as 3D rendering is more than this machine can handle. Would like to see a larger hard drive than the 500GB .
Pros: Computer for average work
Cons: Heavy games cant be played at thier highest level
