83% HP EliteBook 8440p review
Source: It Pro English
The EliteBook 8440p is beautifully made, performed brilliantly in our benchmark tests and even had a decent four hour, 43 minute battery life under light usage. However, despite its many strengths, at this price we were disappointed to find only 2GB of memory and a meagre 250GB hard disk. The lengthy three-year return to base warranty goes a long way to making up for this, though, and touchstick users, who aren't widely catered for beyond Lenovo's ThinkPad range, will find the 8440p to be one of their better options. Most of the features the laptop is missing – more memory and a larger hard disk, for instance – are relatively cheap and easy to upgrade, but this only makes their absence more surprising. If you're paying £950 for a laptop, we don't think you should have to upgrade just to get a large amount of hard disk space. Nonetheless, if you can put up with these omissions, the EliteBook 8440p is a good general-purpose laptop.

With an attractive and robust design, the EliteBook 8440p certainly has its plus points, but the decision to go with 32-bit Windows and the poor battery life hamper overall appeal. And with a similarly specified, but slightly smaller-screened 13in MacBook priced around the same mark, many business users may prefer Apple's alternative.

In sheer performance terms, the HP EliteBook 8440p is a true desktop replacement, packed into a relatively totable 14in-screen package. It's very pricey, but obviously built to last. With the help of its top-spec Core i7 dual-core processor, it should also keep up with the competition for a couple of years too.

We're suckers for nice-looking business notebook, which is the kind of sad confession you'd expect from people who spend their life playing with tech (we only do it for the pay cheque, honest). But who could resist the 14in HP EliteBook 8440p (WL653PA)? HP's EliteBook 8440p is a sturdily built business laptop with enough power to make office productivity tasks a breeze. It's got a functional and attractive design that's sure to turn heads.

HP EliteBook 8440p Review
Source: logicbuy English
The HP EliteBook 8440p is a rugged machine, both inside and out. The top and palmrests are covered in brushed metal, with durable metal hinges, and it’s attached directly to the magnesium subframe. It has a drain in the keyboard tray for liquids, it can withstand an adult’s direct weight on the lid, and frame flex is nonexistent. The addition of the TPM chip and biometric sensor create a comprehensive security package that protects your laptop/data/livelihood from destruction. As a machine, the EliteBook laptop provides connectivity, security, speed, and durability at 4.59 lbs (2.08 kg) and for a reasonable $999. The only significant design detractions are the small touchpad and the average battery life. But those quibbles are minor, and the overall impression is that this laptop is ready for pretty much anything. Heck, this laptop may outlive you if you give it the chance. Comments

HP reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA NVS 3100M: Business graphics card that is based on the GT218 core (e.g. GeForce 305 / 310M) but with drivers that are optimized for stability and compatibility in business applications).

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


Intel Core i5:

540M: The Core i5-540M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-3.06 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

560M:

The Core i5-560M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks also between 2.67-3.2 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

580M:

The Core i5-580M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks also between 2.67-3.33 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

2.1 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.2 kg:


75.75%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
