      HP Elitebook 8440p - Introduction

      I spend my days involved with Technology, if not punching keys in to the keyboard im swiping my finger across the latest Touchscreen and with people selling old goods pretty much every day online there is no better way to find a great deal than to be in the middle of all the hype. I bought this laptop of a friend who had posted a status via a Social Network site looking to sell in a hurry, I've already got a few laptops of a different specs which I use for different purposes, so wasn't too interested in parting with more money on something which was basically un-needed in my household. Anyway originally he'd asked for £200 so I done a few price comparisons and found the same laptop selling new ranging between £300 and £500 so straight away this seemed like it could be a worth-wile investment even if I had no real need for yet another PC. Anyway after a bit of negotiation I manage to collect the laptop and get a further £40 knocked of the requested price meaning I got the system in basically new condition, with no cosmetic damage, restored to factory settings with the original charger for £160. This really put a smile on my face.

      - Design and Specification -

      The HP Elitebook is a powerful yet smart and modern design of laptop featuring an Intel Core i5 Processor with a clock speed of 2.53Ghz and 4.0GB installed RAM. I had noticed on a previous review of this item that someone had this build but only had 2.0GB RAM installed and had noted this as a Con, not sure whether there were 2 releases of this laptop with a range in RAM or whether the other user's system had just being reduced. Either way the build im using currently states 4.0 GB RAM installed.

      Microsoft Windows score for this laptop is a 4.3 being picked up as the lowest reading based on system graphics, I believe the graphics card included in this system is NVIDIA NVS 300 PCIe x16 512MB.

      Other scores reflected in the system build defined by Microsoft are as follows;
      Processor - 6.5
      RAM - 5.5
      Gaming Graphics - 5.1
      Primary Hard Disk - 5.9

      The system is silver with black design keyboard going throughout the middle, on the right hand site there are ports for Telephone Line, Ethernet (Network) & SATA port along with x3 USB ports, x1 Firewire Port and Audio In and Out are all present on the left. There is also an integrated card reader found at the front aswell as touch mouse and another cool feature is the pop out led keyboard light located at the top of the screen which gives more visibility to the keyboard for typing in the dark.

      The system is fast from start-up to shutdown and everything in between, loading of programs and applications is almost instant, navigating between applications and multi-tasking is a breeze.
      Whilst monitoring Task Manager whilst using demanding applications the system still has plenty of resource available, there have being no forms of slowness, freezing or any faults really to report at all with this system.

      I will be updating this review shortly with some more detailed reports which I am currently carrying out on the system.

      Thanks for reading so far, please check back soon for even more info on this Elitebook.
