HP EliteBook 8540p / 8440p Notebook PC


Recommended Posts

This looks more promising, plenty of USB ports (incl USB 3.0) the 14" (8440p) has no USB 3.0 support, 15.6 with an OK resolution for the size.

16GB RAM capable this also applies to the 14" version (8440p)

NVIDIA Quadro NVS5100 should do alright in desktop applications, and the occasional game.

The 8440p comes with a Quadro NVS3100, this will be very entry level stuff, but pretty good for a 14" very portable Notebook.

Overall not a bad machine in my books.
