88% Review HP EliteBook 8560p Notebook | Notebookcheck
Elegant powerhouse. The HP Elitebook 8560p-LQ589AW really stands out with its new and high-end platinum-style aluminium case. And then there’s the hardware: a second generation Core i5 processor, HD graphics from AMD and a large 15.6-inch matt display. The HP notebook costs around €1200 in this configuration. A real steal, given the current price of precious metal?

HP put a lot of thought in designing the EliteBook 8560p, not just on the hardware, but the software side too. It isn't cluttered with junkware, but it's equipped with useful utilities, like HP ProtectTools, a series of technologies that help ensure your secret data stays that way. HP also made it easy to wrangle all these tools, as well as the power options and connectivity sources, through straightforward menus.

80% HP EliteBook 8560p: The Cadillac of Laptops
Source: Bright Hub English
The EliteBook 8560p is an exceptionally well constructed laptop. There are many aspects of its design that are worthy of praise, from the rigid chassis to the large touchpad. Few laptops on the market today offer the combination of features here, and most consumers would find this to be a great desktop replacement laptop.

There's no denying the blazingly fast productivity performance or rugged construction of this notebook, but for this price tag we really expected more out of the visual experience. With a lacklustre display (upgradable to 1080p for a cost) and low-end GPU (not upgradable at all), the 8560p faces stiff competition in this price range for those who value a pretty picture along with superb performance.

Staying on top of business demands means more than putting in the newest and fastest parts; in addition to its cutting edge components, the HP EliteBook 8560p is a complete redesign, from the all-aluminum chassis to the glass touchpad. It's a trendy-looking, powerful business laptop that could stand to improve its battery life. That's why there's a 14-inch version and business laptops, like the Dell Latitude E6420.

80% HP EliteBook 8560p Review

My biggest complaints may or may not be a concern for most potential EliteBook buyers. The optional AMD Radeon 6470M graphics is good, but not particularly remarkable when you consider the $1,499 price tag. Given that this is an EliteBook it's reasonable for customers to assume this notebook offers extremely high-end graphics/video performance and we're just not seeing it here. Likewise, the lack of a 1080p screen option is a bit disappointing when competitors are offing full HD screens on their 15-inch notebooks. I was also sad that HP didn't give the 8560p a backlit keyboard or a three-button touchpad. Again, if none of those quibbles stand out as major problems to you then the new EliteBook 8560p might be the best business notebook for your needs.

HP reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.

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


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. 

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.  

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 


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.


2.7 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.8 kg:

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


74.86%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
