I really think HP’s EliteBook 8440w/8540w/8740w notebooks are seriously the best looking business laptops HP has ever made, and one of the better looking designs in the market, right up there with those timeless ThinkPad designs.
It kinda makes one wonder what the EliteBook 8760w of the future will look like, which is interesting. Rumors have hinted (and also deduction from common sense and the history of HP’s EliteBook lineup) the EliteBook 8460w and EliteBook 8560w models of the future will simply be the already-announced 8460p and 8560p models splashed with an all-black suit.
But so far, the EliteBook 8740w just looks amazing for what it is. And very stylish indeed. I had an opportunity to compare the EliteBook 8740w and the Dell Alienware M17x last week, and I’ll have something words on what I thought posted soon.
