HP EliteBook 8440p-XN702EA
Reviews for the HP EliteBook 8440p-XN702EA
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

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