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.
