Reviews for the HP EliteBook 8540w-XT903UT

80% HP EliteBook Mobile Workstation 8540w
Source: CNet English
With rare exception, mobile workstation laptops are not glamorous. It's a category that puts performance, security, and practicality before portability and stylish design. The HP EliteBook 8540w, though maybe not a full exception, proves that a manufacturer can offer a powerful, secure, rugged workstation that looks good, too. The HP EliteBook 8540w is an attractive and versatile mobile workstation that's tougher than it looks.

ATI FirePro M5800: Upper middle class workstation graphics card based on the core of the Mobility Radeon HD 5730 graphics card with DirectX 11 support.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.97 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
