HP EliteBook 8740W review: a powerful notebook for engineers, designers and animators
Good Gear Guide.au

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
Excerpt: The HP EliteBook 8740w is a highly configurable, rugged desktop-replacement laptop. You can plump for an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 32GB of 1,333MHz DDR3 RAM, more than 1TB of hard-disk space (or up to 256GB SSD), and HP's DreamColor screen. Naturally, such a loaded model will set you back considerably.
