Reviews for the HP EliteBook 8460p–LG743EA
Source: PC Mag
Compared with the Editors' Choice pair of the Acer TravelMate 8481T-6440A and Dell Inspiron 14z (Core i5) , the HP EliteBook 8460p is a little heavy and short on battery life. But even with the extra weight of its semi-rugged construction and the lack of those laptops' HDMI and WiDi, the EliteBook 8460p is a first-class business laptop. It's attractive, with a great typing and touchpadding experience, and built with security in mind.

It's difficult to come away from this review without simply saying that this is a slightly more refined version of the ProBook 6360b. For $300 more, the EliteBook 8460p gives you a faster processor, discrete graphics, a slightly thinner (yet a bit heavier) chassis that looks better, a Pointstick and a great touchpad, two USB 3.0 ports and forgettable speakers.

The HP EliteBook 8460p proves that serious business notebooks can look good and perform well as well. The screen and the super-smooth touchpad are stand-outs, as is the sound quality (for a business machine). It is hefty though, both in bulk and price, but an excellent specification means the only feature you could wish to add would be HDMI. Battery life is average, but if this machine is to serve as a desktop replacement then that's unlikely to be a problem. If you need extra power, then the nine cell battery could be worth an investment, or if you need a gallon of extra power, then get the ultra battery.

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
