If you want a mobile workstation that is not only aesthetically pleasing (that is, your teenage son won’t mind pulling it out from his backpack to use it in front of his peers) but powerful, the HP might have hit the nail on the head with the HP EliteBook 8760w. This puppy is huge to say the least, coming with a 17.3″ high-definition (HD) display, but check out what is underneath the hood and you will definitely appreciate all the work that has gone into it. For starters, you can choose between AMD FireProor NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics that boast up to 4GB of video memory, while configuring it with a trio hard drives and RAID 5 support – making it a first for HP mobile workstations. The HP EliteBook 8760w will also ship with precision aluminum-alloy hinges and cast titanium-alloy display latches for enhanced durability. If you love working late into the night, then the backlit keyboard is useful even as the lights around your are turned down or off so as not to disturb the rest of the household. The HP EliteBook 8760w, 8560w and 8460w will be priced at $1,899, $1,349 and $1,299, respectively, with an expected shipping date sometime in May. Bear in mind those are just entry level prices, and will vary depending on the configuration you opt for. [Press Release]
