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.

HP reviews


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

NVIDIA Quadro 1000M:

Fermi based entry to middle class mobile workstation graphics card (probably based on the same chip as the GeForce GT 540M).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

AMD FirePro M5950:

Professional workstation graphics card based on the Radeon HD 6770M with GDDR5 graphics memory and certified drivers.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i5:

2540M: Fast Dual-core processor clocked from 2.6 to 3.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.0) based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

2.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

3.28 kg:


86%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
