If you're into power and prettiness, the HP EliteBook 8740w laptop is for you. With prebuilt models starting at £1,598, the EliteBook 8740w is a decently priced desktop replacement, and it's sexy to boot. The brushed-metal chassis definitely makes the EliteBook 8740w look, well, elite - unlike a lot of boring, clunky business-rugged laptops. And if you want power, you can have it: custom configurations of the EliteBook 8740w surpass £4,500.
