Business Toolbox. Those who need a notebook as a constant companion need more than a display with keys in front of it. The 14 incher wants to vindicate its high-class claim with connection variety, robustness, and Core i5-520M power.

The HP EliteBook 8440p looks stunning while retaining a functional design, and it offers pretty much everything you'd want from a business notebook. Check it out in store and prepare to be smitten. It's not cheap, but for a business notebook of this calibre we think that's a pretty reasonable proposition.

For business users on a budget, the HP EliteBook 8440p represents a very good bargain. You get excellent Core i5 performance, decent battery life, and a stylish, sturdy chassis for less than $1,000. Considering an identically configured Lenovo ThinkPad T410 costs about $150 more but lacks the metal lid and deck, we feel that the 8440p is the better deal, both in the short and long term.
