HP Compaq nw9440 Review
Source: English
Overall I have found this HP Compaq nw9440 Mobile Workstation to be an eye-opener and a breath of fresh air coming from HP. Admittedly, I have not been a fan of HP products in the past. This was, of course, before I tried their Business Class notebooks, which appear to be much different from their consumer line in overall quality. In the end, I got my notebook that, on the cover, looks all business; but inside has the power of some of the better gaming laptops. I would very much recommend it to anyone in my same situation, needing the appearance of a business-like laptop with the core of a gaming system hidden under the lid.

Er ist extrem leistungsstark und hat sich als eine erstklassige mobile Lösung für den professionellen Videoschnitt herausgestellt. Auch HDV-Schnitt meistert er problemlos.

An exceptionally capable professional tool that will be useful as part of a larger-scale deployment. Mobile workstations have been growing more capable relative to their desktop counterparts over the past few years. And now they're getting physically bigger too, with HP's latest machine sporting a 17in widescreen display and a native 1,920 x 1,200 resolution. With a footprint of 395 x 275mm, there'll be little room in a briefcase for much else, but it isn't shockingly heavy at 3.4kg.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

T2600: Second fastest Core Duo based on the Yonah core. Does not support 64 Bit operating systems.» 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.

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.
