HP Elitebook 8560w – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
For people who need to use professional, demanding programs on a daily basis a notebook must meet certain criteria – input devices, display and internal components have to be up to scratch. The video-looping battery test on max brightness gave one and three-quarter hours service, which is about average for upper mid-rangers, although WiFi surfing of less than 3 hours is hardly acceptable.
