The EliteBook 8770w is HP’s flagship mobile workstation notebook. The sleek business laptop packs a punch under the hood; the machine’s large 17 inch display also means a lot of surface area to house lots of components. The notebook is configurable with just about everything you can think of to construct one of the most powerful notebooks under 2 inches and 4 kg (9 lbs): quad-core Intel Ivy Bridge processors (maxes out at the Core i7 Extreme Edition), 4 DDR3 [...]

HP EliteBook 8770w (left) vs EliteBook 8740w (right) thickness
I recently got a chance to have a brief hands-on with the new HP EliteBook 8770w Mobile Workstation. It’s basically identical to the 2011′s EliteBook 8760w on the outside with refresh processor and graphics card options on the inside. This isn’t something that EliteBook 8760w owners would immediately upgrade to, unless you’re really rich or going to have your company purchase it for you. The performance jump is very slight and battery [...]
Full-fledged HP Z210 Convertible Mini Tower (CMT)
While we’re all excited about HP’s new Mobile Workstation notebooks, let’s also not forget their new workstation models released alongside those new EliteBooks. They may share the same model number but the new HP Z210 workstations from yesterday are in fact two different beasts. The Z210 Convertible Mini Tower (or CMT for short) is a full-sized workstation model while the Z210 SFF (Small Form Factor), as the name suggests, is a significantly smaller and [...]
HP EliteBook 8760w Mobile Workstation (click for larger)
The HP EliteBook 8760w is a massive desktop-replacement 17 inch Mobile Workstation. It is HP’s flagship notebook for the 2011 model lineup. At 1.47 inches thick and a footprint of 16.4 by 10.7 inches, this isn’t a machine you would want to carry to Starbucks and on your shoulder all day (well I guess if you worked in the comfy offices of Dreamworks, which happens to be my dream I hope to [...]

The 15 inch HP EliteBook 8560w has more in common with its larger sibling, the EliteBook 8760w, than the EliteBook 8460w. is the newly announced Mobile Workstation model from today. Its 15 by 10 inch footprint sits right between the 8460w and 8760w, and resembles them with a MIL-STD 810G business-rugged gunmetal gray exterior design.

HP EliteBook 8460w Mobile Workstation (click for larger)
The HP EliteBook 8460w is the newly announced Mobile Workstation model from today. Having a 14 inch screen and measuring not much larger than a traditional document (about 13 by 9 inches), it’s the smallest of HP’s Mobile Workstation models. In terms of design, it resembles its “p-series” twin, the EliteBook 8460p, except it has a gunmetal-gray design.
The EliteBook 8460w is meets MIL-STD 810G “military standards” which is just a really fancy [...]
EliteBook 8740w backlit keyboard
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.
2010 EliteBook models: Probably the best looking business notebooks HP has ever made?!
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 [...]
Nvidia has just announced their first bunch of “Fermi” Quadro workstation class graphics card that supports DirectX 11 for both desktops and notebooks. The Nvidia Quadro FX5000M not only has 2 GB of memory (which we already knew about from ‘service parts’ for the Elitebook 8740w that have been posted on HP’s website for months now), but is superior to the current (and now, former) top of the line Quadro FX3800M in almost every way imaginable, at [...]
