    Default HP Elitebook 8440P

    I have been looking at the Dell Latitude e6400, Lenovo T410, and the HP Elitebook 8440P. Dell is slow on the tech refresh of the Latitude and the T410 is not as solid as I would like (Plastic, Loose Battery, Squeaky Keyboard).

    I am learning that you really cant customize an HP unless you don't care about the price tag. I mostly use Business Apps, Cloud Services, and Demo software/hardware products (Demos in Virtual Box Machines). My main criteria is a light weight, durable machine. Of course the faster the better!!!

    An 8440P with i5-520M, Integrated Graphics, 1600x900, 4GB Ram, and 250 GB HDD is over $2K when customized.

    Pre-configured with an i7-620M, NVIDIA NVS 3100 (512 MB), 1600x900, 4GB RAM, and 320 GB HDD is $1500.

    Will the i7 and NVIDIA significantly reduce the battery life and run warmer?

    As far as I know the core-i5 540m is more power efficient than core-i7 620; also cooler.

    Another question:
    Does HP 8440p feature nVidia Optimus switchable Graphics?

    Or is it the same as Lenovo T410 - either integrated or discrete?

    The HP has the NVIDIA NVS 3100 graphics with 512 MB dedicated gDDR3 video memory or the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD

    The T410 offers the NVIDIA NVS 3100m Graphics 256MB DDR3 with AMT or the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD - AMT

    So Video-Ram is the only difference?

    Yes. That is the only difference

    If they're both GDDR3, the difference in memory will not have any noticeable effect on performance.
    Current laptop: Lenovo W520, previous laptops: MBP 15, Acer 6920G, Dell Inspiron 8200.

    M4600 vs. W520 vs. 8560w

    I'm also eagerly waiting reviews. I love the style of the elitebooks, and the price point if fairly decent. Here's hoping they use a decent screen.

    Here's a quick video preview on the 8440p http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfZidSCotTw

    Some nice close-ups on the screen, overall looks great!

    Thanks for the video, looks great.

    I currently own a HP 6910p and in not completely satisfied with it due to its excessive noise and heat level. I hope the 8440p will be more quite. Reviews of the 8440w are saying it is a very quiet note book:

    During normal use (browsing the web or working on a text document) the EliteBook 8440w remained quite cool and very quiet. The exhaust fan wasn't audible except when running performance benchmarks or stressing the CPU and graphics. You won't have to worry about bothering coworkers or clients with unwanted noise coming from your laptop in a quiet office.

    Hopefully the 8440p use the same cooling system as the 8440w, and since it is possible to configure the 8440w with a quad core i7 as well I would hope that the cooling system is oversized for the dual core i7 and i5's thus making it a cool computer.

    I was concidering the t410 but seeing that the cooling system is not on par with the t400 i am hoping the 8440p will come through here.

    Battery time also look great: the 8440w tihe a i7 620m and the 25w TDP Quadro FX 380M and 9-cell battery was close to 7 hours. SInce the 8440p use the less power hungry nvs 3100m (14w TDP) I hope battery time with a i5 will be in the 7h+ region.
