    We folks in the US have a lot of down-time coming up this week. I may try to tackle the task while trying to fight off a Turkey induced tryptophan coma. :D

    Thanks Raelin. Unfortunately, after looking at the quick specs, the DVI-D connectors on the Advanced docking station appear to be single-link only. Fortunately, there are a pair of displayports on the docking station, so I'll have to get a pair of dongles. Guess I'll go w/ HP part # NR078AA. Man, this is really starting to add up...

    I ordered my 8740w Friday. It shipped FedEx ground Friday and is due to be delivered tomorrow!

    This is the XT910UT*ABA model which includes:

    740QM CPU
    WUXGA screen (not the DC unfortunately, but 1920x1200 though)
    FX 3800M
    1 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 DIMM
    500 GB 7200
    Backlit keyboard

    Got it for $2,844.

    Picked up 3 matching HP 4 GB sticks @ $197, the advanced docking station, and a slip case. $3,774 out the door.

    Hopefully it will be as sleek as the Asus W2P it will be replacing which came with an HD-DVD drive, so that tells you hold old it is. The middle 3rd of the screen died on it a couple of weeks ago. Once you have metal, you never go back. :)

    well no more benches on my hp for a bit, my SSD has decided to die on me.

    she's sitting there 'discharging' until i can test the power drain test

    sigh.

    Does anyone know what kind of IPS panel the DC2 screen is? S-IPS, H-IPS, etc.

    Thanks! This revision adds

    • Knight's 740QM+5000M PCMark, Tom2D, WPrime, Cinebench64, SpecViewPerf11, 3DMark
    • Knight's 820QM+M7820 noise
    • Aikimox's Tom2D
    • Burgerlim's 840QM+3800M SPECViewPerf
    • Siorah's 620M'+2800M SpecViewPerf
    • Siorah's WEI
    • DEJAD's WPrime

  7. With the additional benchmarks, the benchmark table became too long for the CODE blocks. Benchmarks have been divided into three groups as described below. Also, each data table is immediately followed by graphs of its data, making it easier to look for data correlations to explain the graphs.


    Collected 8740w Owners Benchmarks Data (as of 2010.11.22)


    Elitebook 8740w configurations and measurements shared by Elitebook 8740w owners in NotebookReview forums.

    • People considering purchases or upgrades can compare configurations.
    • Recent purchasers or upgraders can check whether their systems are configured to perform up to par.
    • Owners can diagnose performance differences or cooling/noise issues.

  8. The tables and bargraphs below summarize the 8740w configurations and datapoints collected so far.

    • All basic specifications of the systems that were collected are listed in the first table.
    • Measurements are divided into separate tables for:

      • Temperatures,
      • Battery times,
      • System performance,
      • CPU and 2D Graphics performance, and
      • 3D Graphics performance.

    • At each table:

        [li]A relevant subset of system specifications are listed below each measurement data table so readers may correlate configurations with data.
        [li](A few component specs may be added in parentheses, derived from the component model number.)
        [li]Some of the data are visualized with bargraphs below the data, ranking the configurations.
        [/li][/li][/li]
    • [li][li]
      [li][URL='#SOURCE_LINKS']Source links[/URL] to each contributors' forum posts are listed at the end.

    Maru, why are you posting those lengthy benchmarkrs here? Siorah create a thread specifically for those benchmark results; asking for results only, with the assumption discussion would be in this thread.

    I don't have this answer. I once read something from Greg Stanton who stated the IPS display used in the 8740w is not the same as used in the LP2480zx desktop display, but the specs are very close to identical. Not sure if a conclusion can be drawn from that in whether the dektop DreamColor display is S- or H- IPS, likely not, but there it is.

    Do a close photograph of the screen. You'll need a good camera in order to get a good result, although 3x-4x zoom should be enough. Zoom in the camera until you see the pixel structure (i.e., individual shapes on the screen, each one is 1 subpixel, remember a pixel is usually made of 3 subpixels). When you see that structure, shoot and post the photo here. Some IPS variants can be determined by their pixel layout and shape.

    See this thread from another forum for more information and photos. I bet the DreamColor (2) panel is e-IPS, but a good one. Just my 2 cents.
