From quad-core processing and WorkStation graphics to ISV certification and a billion-color screen, the HP EliteBook 8740w is HP’s top-of-the-line offering for serious professional needs.
The component offerings should allow for some serious desktop-like performance while still being mobile. The workstation measures 1.4 inches high by 15.6 inches wide by 11.2 inches deep and its weight starts at 7.8 pounds. That’s not small by any means, but certainly something that can be travelled with if need be.
The 8740W is rugged, too, meeting military standards (MIL-STD 810G) for vibration, dust, humidity, altitude, and high temperature. It also has a spill-resistant keyboard. If security is an issue for you, HP’s loaded this system with all of its HP ProtectTools and it has a fingerprint scanner.
