    Now that would be something special! If it's true, then HP are going to sell a metric ton of these.

    HP has posted the pretty detailed 'QuickSpecs' of the 8740w on their web site.

    http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13543_na/13543_na.html

    There's a PDF version of this on the site, too.

    It says that optional DreamColor will be available in May (and the QuickSpecs don't include the specs on the DreamColor display yet).

    And here's the Press Release about the 8740w:

    http://www.hp.com/hpinfo/newsroom/press/2010/100324xa.html

    Snippet:

    "The HP EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation offers ISV-certified workstation-class performance in a mobile package. Featuring a 17-inch diagonal display, a range of Intel processors including Core i7 Extreme Edition,(8) and support for up to 16 GB of memory, the 8740w can meet the needs of the most demanding applications.

    The inclusion of USB 3.0 provides increased bandwidth and performance, while an optional backlit keyboard is offered for the first time on an HP EliteBook.

    The DreamColor display option enables professionals to work with deep, accurate colors for precise results every time. Able to display more than 1 billion active colors – 64 times the capabilities of a traditional display – the 8740w utilizes a 30-bit notebook LCD panel to provide a level of color control previously found only on the deskbound HP DreamColor LP2480 Professional Display.

    The HP mobile display assistant and optional HP color calibration kit further allow control, adjustment and alignment of the DreamColor notebook display to ensure predictable color.

    Workstation-class graphics solutions maximize onscreen performance. The 8740w offers a choice of the ATI FirePro M7820 with 1 GB of GDDR5 video memory or the NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M or NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M – both with 1 GB GDDR3 video memory.

    Users selecting the ATI FirePro configuration benefit from Direct X 11 and multidisplay support. Through a single GPU, the mobile workstation can simultaneously support up to four independent display outputs, plus the native notebook panel, for a total of five displays."
