88% Review HP EliteBook 8770w DreamColor Notebook | Notebookcheck
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.

Comment

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA Quadro K4000M:

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

AMD FirePro M4000: Professional workstation graphics card based on the Radeon HD 7700M series with GDDR5 graphics memory and certified drivers.

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.

3840QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.8 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i5:

3360M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, 2.8-3.5 GHz, includes HD 4000 GPU

3.6 kg:

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.

3.92 kg:


83.33%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
