Reviews for the HP Elitebook 8560p

Source: Digital Trends English
Any number of notebooks come configured cheaper or lighter, but for brute processing power, comfortable, hard-wearing controls and durability, it would be hard to do better than HP’s industrial-strength EliteBook 8560p. With a starting price of $1,099, you’ll pay for all three luxuries, but together they represent a sound investment that should keep ticking well after competitors have fried hard drives, broken keys and hinges that will barely keep the screen up anymore.

Work hard, play hard. That should be HP's motto for the EliteBook 8560p. Though this workstation includes the typical suite of features that business users expect, it also has the multimedia chops to take off its tie and run consumer applications after hours. The HP EliteBook 8650p is a fast, comfortable notebook with excellent battery life and a host of professional-level features, without a huge professional-notebook price premium.

The bulk and weight (nearly 3kg) make it unsuitable for frequent travellers (unless you’re doing regular longhaul flights that may make the extended super-long-life battery worth investing in). If you intend to work desk-bound with a dock, only moving down the hall to the meeting room, or carting your laptop home at the end of the day, this is going to give you the best value for money by far.

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.
