5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Business Laptop

Pros: Works with real docking station, decent video card, matte screen, solid keyboard, big tracking pad, solid build, through docking station runs 2x 24" monitors without a problem, decent for CAD and GIS work

Cons: 6G Sata III SSD only registers as 3G, 1600 mhz DDR only runs at 1333 mhz

Other Thoughts: I bumped the RAM up to 16G and added an SSD (OCZ Vertex 4 256G). Wow.

4 out of 5 eggsAn OK Laptop

Pros: + Design: This thing looks professional and feels that way too.

+ Functional keyboard: It has a numeric keypad and all the function keys (F1 through F12) work as expected without having to use Fn like in some current laptops out there.

+ No touch-sensitive media keys: YES!!!

+ Desktop Replacement: Unless you are a gamer or big into CG animation, the 2.5 GHz Core I5 will handle all of your desktop tasks without slowing down.

+ Clean Windows DVD's: If you don't want the out-of-box bloatware or would prefer 32-bit Windows instead, you can reformat and reinstall with the included DVD's which are real Windows DVD's, not that "quick restore" nonesense that puts all bloatware back in. But be sure to read the Cons section for an important caveat though.

Cons: - Display looks too dull for a LED display. I've seen LCD panels with better video quality. Blacks look grey and everything has a blueish tint, like someone in HP is a huge fan of 6500K daylight bulbs.

- Hard drive is slow. It's not 4200rpm bad, but it definitely doesn't feel like a 7200rpm drive.

- Outdated Windows image: Be ready to spend some serious time updating Windows when you unpack this laptop. And if you want a bloatware-free Windows installation, you can reformat and install with the included DVD, but that one doesn't even have Service Pack 1 integrated so you'll spend a couple of days -- yes DAYS getting Windows installed and updated if you go the bloatware-free route. Remember to make a backup image when you are done updating so you don't have to go through the whole process again.

Other Thoughts: I was looking forward to getting this laptop. I was seeing myself writing a review of how super awesome the ElliteBook 8560p is. But all I can say after actually using one is that it is an OK laptop.

Battery life borders on mediocre, but as a desktop replacement, it was kind of expected so I wasn't really disappointed.
