Big bad earmuffs!

Hey all, how was your week? Mine was hectic as ever.

I’ve been very busy over the last one week, attending several events and product launches (errr… non-HP ones unfortunately) and I recently received a pair of Panasonic ‘earmuff’ headphones as a gift. And let me summarize things for you: Best. Gift. Ever. If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you’d know that I’ve been enjoying loud, thumping bass along with crispy clear sound. I’m loving it! This pair of Panasonic headphones have better sound quality, bass thump and design versus my old, now-defunct Creative headphones. Well, not exactly defunct, it still works, but because of the dumb design, the second ‘upper’ band which keeps the ‘muffs over your head broke. Oddly enough, it’s made of plastic and there used to be a small, visible plastic ‘seam’ at the breaking point – planned failure, huh? Don’t get me wrong, I love Creative’s in-ear buds though, just not their big headphones.

I know I’m supposed to post my review of the HP Elitebook 8440p and HP Envy 15 feat. ATI Mobility 5830. And I will… over the coming days. And I also caught a few more titbits about the ever-elusive Elitebook 8740w during the weekends – Will have that posted soon as well =)

    Will the 8740w arrive some day? This wait is going to be eternal! Damn! What HP is waiting for? πŸ™

      Yes, it definitely will arrive soon. I have a feeling they’re waiting for ATI’s workstation class graphics. Just a guess: No point releasing it now like the 8540w if it doesn’t have an ATI option; I bet HP knows everyone just -wants- ATI on their Elitebook so badly now

    Thanks for your explanation, Brad πŸ™‚

    But, what’s the advantage of an ATI card over an NVIDIA card? Is not the Quadro FX 3800M powerful enough to satisfy the most demanding users? May it be the inclusion of DirectX 11 on new ATI cards perhaps? But, in a workstation laptop, does it make sense?
