This review is from: HP EliteBook J5N82UT#ABA Notebook AMD A-Series A10 Pro-7350B (2.10GHz) 4GB Memory 180GB SSD AMD Radeon R6 Series 12.5" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit
Pros: 1080P IPS; Seriously one of the most beautiful screens I've seen on a laptop this small. Beats the pants off the IPS in my X230.
Gorilla glass 3
Comes with Intel 1500 pro SSD
Awesome keyboard. Not X220 or X230 level, but awesome and feedback-y.
Thinkpad muscle memory works with the n!pple mouse.
Great touchpad. Real buttons!
Fantastic build quality. magnesium alloy top and bottom. Between that and the gorilla glass, I don't think it's possible to easily damage the screen on these.
NO WIFI WHITELIST. I installed a generic Intel 7260 AC.
Boots from SD (a feature I thought died when everything went PCIe).
Can drive two external monitors AND the internal one.
3 year stock warranty.
Service panel comes off with no screws, making wifi/ram/HDD upgrades a breeze.
Pretty solid ubuntu support.
Upward firing speakers.
Tiny AC adapter
5 hour battery. Good for 3 cells in an ultrabook chassis.
Benchmarks after adding ram for dual-channel mode; 3dmark11: 1100~ Unigine Heaven: 11.1 FPS @ 768p, medium shaders, normal tessellation, no AA
The only 12.5" gaming machine you can really get right now.
Cons: Proprietary dock port. There's no excuse not to have a standard AMD dockport here.
Single-channel ram config. You'll want to add a 4gb stick to unlock almost double the gaming performance. Bonehead move from HP here. (nevermind that 8gb should be the bare minimum in a laptop of this cost. Ram is cheap.)
Loud fan in performance mode. No worse than usual, but louder than X230.
Other Thoughts: If you liked the DV6, you'll love this.
If you liked thinkpads before they were ruined by the *40 series, you'll find a home here.
I really hope HP can continue this trend.
