Laptop Magazine has reviewed the 14-inch HP EliteBook 8460p. This laptop features an aerospace-inspired HP DuraCase that meets the MIL-STD 810G military-standard testing specifications, enabling it to withstand wear and tear. The EliteBook 8460p is powered by a choice of Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, an Intel HD Graphics 3000 or a high-performance AMD Radeon HD 6470M discrete graphics, USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 charging port. Additional specs include up to 16GB DDR3 memory, a choice of 750GB HDD or 160GB SSD, a Blu-ray drive, a LED-backlit display, an HD webcam, a spill resistant keyboard, WiFi, Bluetooth and up to 9-cell battery. The HP EliteBook 8460p also offers a superb battery life of up to 32-hour. Here is the verdict:
HP has created an excellent business partner in the EliteBook 8460p. The redesign is sleek and durable, it performs well, and lasts a long time on a charge. We also like the above-average sound quality, comfy keyboard, and smooth and accurate glass touchpad, as well as the helpful security tools. Our only reservations about this $1,199 notebook are that it’s slightly heavy and bulky for a 14-inch machine and that the pointing stick isn’t as good as what the competition offers. Overall, though, the EliteBook 8460p is a compelling business laptop.
