Reviews for the HP EliteBook 8540p
Source: IT Reviews
The Hewlett Packard EliteBook 8540p is a nice notebook. The relatively high screen resolution is a real draw, and we found the keyboard to be well made and easy to use at full touch-typing speed. It is big and heavy and so not designed for portability, though. And it is expensive too.

In summary, you can’t go wrong with the EliteBook 8540p (or the 8xx0 series for that matter). With this flagship business line HP has combined good looks, ruggedness, high performance, and tons of features into one extremely attractive package. The 8540p has a reasonable starting price (for an enterprise notebook) and a lot of options to jack it up if you’d like (quad-core processors, 8GB RAM, SSDs, etc.), but even this base-level unit was impressive.
