HP Laptop EliteBook 8460p (LJ540UT#ABA) Intel Core i5 2450M (2.50GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 3000 14.0
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Large touchpad, anti-glare screen, fast...

I ditched the CD/DVD burner and put a HD caddy into the expansion bay. I have 1 SDD and 1 HDD. The OS (Win7) is on the SDD and it flies.

I'm also dual booting with Ubuntu and the laptop is fully linux capable, no driver issues at all.

To the user that said it was difficult to reload after a system format: You can get all of the applicable drivers from HP support or you can just install the drivers that come with the DVD restore disks.

I'm a PC tech and our company has these as standard issue. I really appreciate the intuitive design by HP, it's simply the easiest laptop I've ever had to work on. (The entire back cover of the laptop snaps right off, no screws necessary.)

Cons: The 'pointstick' is useless. Does anyone still use those? Also, there is no backlit keyboard...HP installed a light at the top of the monitor that is supposed to illuminate the keyboard... it really only illuminates the F9 key, not really practical.
