Summary: This laptop is AMAZING!!! It can play high quality games, do video editing, graphic design etc. I absolutly love it. The speed is BAR NONE, the amazing i7 Processor inside makes it just beautiful.
Summary: I'm not sure why every review is negative. I have had several of these and never had ANY major problems. It runs fast, it is stable and there is nothing even close to the build quality of this machine. This is the best laptop I have ever had, and I have several others of the elitebook line.
A powerhouse of graphics and build quality... with TLC required

Summary: In April 2014, a 2011 laptop like this should be out of date. It is and it isn't. This laptop had ddr5 graphics memory and had dx11, opencl1, and opengl4 when it was released. There wasn't anything better in power combined with build quality at the time.
Summary: I bought this for the 1920x1200. But it arrived with a serious graphics problem. HP are great and they finally fixed it. NOW i find it FREEZES UP every day, without warning after about 5-7 hours.
Summary: I agree with the other reviewer. I have had nothing but issues with this $3,000 machine. It has had a new motherboard, then I was asked to reformat my computer, then a new hard drive. I'm still having issues.
Summary: Great laptop for programming. WUXGA resolution (1920x1200) is perfect for writing and viewing full screen apps. Expresscard slot is great as I've put in a serial card (USB to serial converters don't always work correctly). Nice color, fast, sturdy, would recommend.
Avoid like the plague - no wonder HP is out of the PC market

Summary: Sorry, I hate to bash a product and sound like some vindictive newbie, but this EliteBook is the worst computer I've had EVER. They have replaced the motherboard 3 times, the sound card once, the video card once. These have all been separate visits. It has been down more than up.
