HP EliteBook 8740w Review

maximum pc
28 January 2011
  • Excerpt: It’s difficult to pick just one standout feature of the HP EliteBook 8740w mobile workstation. Certainly a bright, 17-inch, 10-bit LCD panel that’s capable of displaying more than 1 billion colors and remains visible at up to about a 170-degree offset without any color degradation is worth noting. But so is the notebook’s durable design, with its spill-resistant keyboard, magnesium-alloy chassis, and magnesium-aluminum display enclosure.
  • Pros: Professional-caliber display; sturdy build; great performance.
  • Cons: Very expensive; heavy; poor battery life; middling SpecViewperf11.

HP EliteBook 8740W review: a powerful notebook for engineers, designers and animators

Good Gear Guide.au
17 February 2011
  • Summary: The HP EliteBook 8740W will suit engineers, designers, animators and anyone else who requires a powerful notebook that they can use both at work and at home. It's solidly built and has lots of speed and plenty of features, but don't expect much out of its battery; its keyboard is poor, too.
  • Pros: Good build quality, quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM, powerful graphics, USB 3.0, fast I/O performance
  • Cons: Keyboard is poor, very expensive
