Reviews for the HP 8740W-WW427PA

70% HP EliteBook 8740W notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English
We like the build quality of the EliteBook 8740W. It's definitely not a unit that will fall apart easily as you transport it to and from the office. It's made out of metal and its hinges are tough. If you're in the market for a mobile workstation with lots of CPU power, RAM and hard drive capacity, and most importantly, an excellent screen, the 8740W is definitely one to consider.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M:

Professional workstation graphics card with certified drivers for optimal CAD and DCC support. The Quadro FX 3800M is based on the GeForce GTX 280M core and when compared to the FX 3700M, the FX 3800M features higher clock speeds and is produced on a 55nm manufacturing process.

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.  


820QM:

The Core i7-820QM is a high-end quad core CPU for laptops that clocks due to the Turbo Mode from 1.73-3.06 GHz. Therefore, the processor combines the advantages of fast single core CPUs and slow quad-core CPUs. Hyperthreading allows the simultaneous use of 8 Threads in parallel.
