4 out of 5 eggsUpdate after a few months of use

Pros: See my old review

Cons: Additional notes after several months of use:

Keyboard is poorly designed; keys are too far apart, arrow keys and delete key are way too small.

USB ports are too tight; it takes more effort than it should to insert a device, almost to the point where you're afraid of damaging it.

Apparently like a number of other owners, after a couple days I experienced weird noises coming from the speakers every 30 seconds or so. It was an easy fix, just did a google search and followed directions. Just kind of annoying.

The AC adapter falls out a lot.

Battery life is pretty terrible.

Other Thoughts: This is meant to serve as an update to my previous review. Despite the added cons I'm still giving it 4 stars because it has handled everything I've thrown at it very well.

4 out of 5 eggspowerful laptop, but runs hot

Pros: *i5 processor seems quite fast
*Nice graphics card for moderate gaming
*Not constructed out of black plastic as Newegg implies, but rather what seems to be either aluminum or something like aluminum
*Nice simple industrial design - not as pretty as a Mac, but not ugly like a lot of gaming laptops
*Screen looks good

Cons: *Heavy (but I guess that's generally what you can expect with a larger, more powerful laptop)
*Large battery and HUGE AC adapter
*Only 4GB RAM
*Runs very hot when working hard
*Closing mechanism feels sort of "springy" and not very secure when you close the laptop - not sure if this means it's poorly constructed, just seems weird

Other Thoughts: I got the laptop yesterday so I haven't had much of a chance to really test it out, however here are my initial thoughts:

I wanted a laptop that I could use for graphic design (Adobe CS) and for playing games. The Elitebook 8560w is not top of the line for either of these things, but sort of a compromise between the two.

The ATI Firepro M5950 is what makes this laptop (an older model, with i5 instead of i7 and no blueray) as expensive as it is. So far I have just tried out Civ5, a relatively demanding game, and it plays beautifully and smoothly. However, the laptop REALLY heated up when running the game. I think you could actually burn yourself having this thing in your lap.

Overall great performance so far. I will update my review if anything comes up as I continue to use the laptop.
