They hold the display lid tightly in place. So if you're looking for a fairly light business-class that gets the job done without being flashy, the 8460p deserves closer inspection. Display and Audio Our 8440p's matte display came in the 1366 x 768-pixel configuration; this resolution was more than sufficient, and colors were bright and sharp, but those who desire more pixels can opt for a 1600 x 900-resolution display. It also meant there was a bit more worry about how the EliteBook 8470p would do here. The slight depression is intended to help secure your finger, but we found ours slipping a little more than those on Lenovo systems.
Keyboard The keyboard is in no way flimsy, which makes for firm keystrokes. This system performance benchmark awards the EliteBook 7,734 points. We actually prefer the 8440w; it looks a bit meaner. Those looking for more should branch out and consider the 8560w available with DreamColor technology. So that colors don't appear distorted or screen contents darker, a broad range of viewing angles is a must when more than one person is looking at the screen from the side or from different heights at the same time.
With the Reader's and the Classic tests we were able to measure possible running times of at least 66 minutes under load Classic and a maximum of 256 minutes Reader. The 8440p's Intel Centrino Advanced N 6200 Wi-Fi radio saw fairly strong results. Anyone wanting more sound out of the EliteBook 8470p should connect the notebook to stereo speakers or invest in high quality headphones to overcome this weakness. In regards to heat we can give the EliteBook 8470p a good testimony. Some might find it takes too much effort to push in a key, while others will like the resistance and crisp feel of each keystroke. Instead of struggling with two spring-loaded switches at once to get the battery out, it falls out practically on its own after pulling on just one switch.
The EliteBook series, which fits above the lower-end series, was introduced in August 2008. The hinges cling tightly to the base unit and pushing on them doesn't make them move the slightest bit. The keyboard's feel is excellent, with good tactile feedback during touch-typing sessions. Even after several hours of torture with Prime95 and Furmark the turbo of 3. The laptop itself also overheated a bit, you have to keep it in cool places.
In World of Warcraft, the 8440p delivered 50 frames per second with the resolution at 1024 x 768, and graphics at their optimal settings. One big difference comes with dark movies scenes, where you will clearly see a grayer looking scene. If you compare the values of both devices, the average difference is 4. Looking at the screen from an angle from below and off to the side, the picture remains undistorted for up to 40º. The EliteBook mainly competes against computer lineups such as 's , 's and , 's and 's and. However, the maximum volume of the speakers is good enough for everyday use without having to overload the speakers.
Playing Risen, there's absolutely no chance of a smooth frame rate. One important factor for a mobile work device has to be the battery life. Green Testing It took the 8440p's six-cell battery 1 hour and 5 minutes to charge to 80 percent, and 1:51 to fully charge. The one I received looked brand new. However, side-to-side viewing angles were excellent. The keyword here is optional accessories, for which you will of course be asked to hand out more cash.
You should hardly notice the contrast limitations while working or playing videos. How can you pass up a deal like that? Its predecessor, the , was a tad light at 2. For example, we find a security manager on board. So once again we have a very pressure resistant case before us, which doesn't even give up a millimeter when direct pressure is applied. This means, the 8460p is not the perfect companion for a trip to the park or on the terrace of a cafe.
This contributed to the EliteBook 8460p closely missing out on a rating of very good. The resulting crack between the display lid and the base unit is large enough to tilt the display lid up with just your thumb. I couldn't find a scratch or blemish anywhere. The price for preconfigured models is reasonable, given some of the system management features built into the EliteBook. Battery Life Energy Consumption Because of the potent hardware the energy needs have increased since the previous model. The hard drive is mounted directly to the notebook frame, reducing the transmission of shock to the hard drive. I would recommend to the sellers to give it a cleaning before delivering it, mine came with a little dirt on the edges, nothing big.
At first, we could not locate two separate speakers since the audio seemed to be emanating from the bottom of the case. The test model can also keep a cool head on the top side even while under load. The wifi card and bluetooth are not combined as is typical, rather the Bluetooth module is found at the front, which likely makes the Bluetooth signal easier to pick up. The arrow keys no longer stick out below the bottommost row of keys but are still easy to feel out without looking thanks to the slight concavity of all the keys. If you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed.
