A Blaze of Colors. This 17-inch HP workstation has some interesting components: the DreamColor display being the most interesting of all. First-class values paired with great color space coverage - a rare combination. We extensively tested the laptop to see if the other hardware components met high standards set by the display.

In the end I am impressed with the strength and quality of the of this laptop. It is put together with some top quality parts. My main concern is the shear size a weight of this machine. A 17″ laptop is not a good travel size and should not be taken on the road, but with just over 5 hours of battery it is going to last long time if you do decide to take it on the go.

The HP EliteBook 8770w is a great workstation for those looking for productivity and durability. The sturdy well-built design ensures that the notebook will hold up, while the beautiful display, comfortable keyboard, and touchpad make using the device a joy to use. Additionally, its solid CPU and GPU allow the machine to tackle almost any program or function with consistent performance; and its cornucopia of ports allows the workstation to connect to a wide array of devices simultaneously. Users who travel regularly may be better served with a notebook that offers better battery life and a portable design, and power users who are looking for top-notch performance may want to opt for a desktop. However, users who need a bit of portability with consistent levels of performance and connectivity will find what they need from the HP EliteBook 8770w.

NVIDIA Quadro K4000M:

High-end workstation graphics card based on the GK104 Kepler architecture with 960 shaders and a 256-Bit wide memory bus.

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.  


3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

17.30":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.92 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
