Handsome business laptop has a cutting-edge Blu-ray Disc drive and can moonlight as a hot 3D gaming station. Light weight, solid graphics, and a good battery life set the HP Compaq 8710p ($2549 as of 10/9/07) apart from most other desktop replacement notebooks. It also happens to be a very elegant-looking laptop equipped with a cutting-edge Blu-ray Disc optical drive. The 8710p is not customizable, but HP offers five different configurations on its Web site. Our review unit, equipped with a 2.2-GHz Core 2 Duo T7500, 2GB of RAM, and Windows Vista Business, gave us above-average speed, receiving a WorldBench 6 Beta 2 score of 77. It performed a little better than an HP Pavilion dv9500t equipped with the same processor and amount of RAM, which earned a mark of 73, and a smidgen above the average of 75 earned by 17 currently tested desktop replacements.

Comment

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 320M: DirectX 10 business graphic card, which is optimized for compatibility and stability. The graphic card seems to have the same core like the 8700M series and therefore shows good performance data.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7300: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
