Reviews for the HP Elitebook 8560p
Source: Digital Trends
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.
