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.
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.
