Review Update HP EliteBook 8570w LY550EA-ABD Notebook

Notebookcheck
21 June 2013
  • Summary: AMD Elite graphics. HP offers the Elitebook 8570w mobile workstation in several configurations. This one is a combination of the Intel Core i5-3360 CPU, AMD’s professional FirePro M4000 graphics and the mandatory Full HD screen. This is certainly not the ultimate hardware money can buy, but for an affordable workstation, we try to evaluate its suitability.
  • Pros: Very good keyboard inc. backlight, Good battery runtimes, Decent system performance, Very good CAD performance depending on the application, Very good expandability and connectivity, Very low temperature development, The AMD FirePro M4000 is a good alternative for many applications at an attractive price.
  • Cons: Manufacturing flaws in the test device, Unusable Intel's HD Graphics 4000, Loud operating noise during load, Moderate interface positioning, Automatic switching to Intel HD Graphics 4000 could provide longer runtimes and take advantage of Quick Sync.

Review HP EliteBook 8570w Notebook

Notebookcheck
13 November 2012
  • Summary: The contender. The EliteBook 8570w is a premium notebook designed to compete in the high-performance realm of professional workstations. Our review model doesn't feature top-of-the-line components, however - it's equipped with an Intel Core i5 CPU, Nvidia Quadro K1000M GPU, and a HD+ display. Can this less powerful version of the series stand up to its competition?
  • Pros: Premium (and very sturdy) chassis, Very good keyboard, Long battery life, Good display, Very good overall performance, Easy to expand; good port selection, Runs cool, The superb chassis, the plethora of ports, and the decent performance.
  • Cons: Price-performance ratio of the review model is not the best, No Nvidia Optimus - shorter battery life and higher system noise at low load levels, Fairly noisy hard drive, Keyboard not backlit, Optimus technology so the integrated graphics card can be utilized. A better price-performance ratio for our review model.
