    The 14 looks great, but judging by the prices of the other two, it's gonna be crazy expensive.

    I would really, really, really like three buttons also on the smaller laptops.

    Dock connector, is it compatible with the previous gen. Elitebook docks?

    The dock connector for the 15" and 17" is backwards compatible for sure.

    I predict an early price reduction, I just don't think they are priced right relative to what they are replacing. The intro level GPU is pathetic, and with no Firepro option on the 15 and 17, you really need to step it up at least one notch which is never fun with Quadro pricing.

    I am a bit surprised to see HP first to market with mobile workstations, though of course who knows how long until the first orders start shipping.

    For others interested in Dell, the new Firepro cards are up on AMDs website (as of a few hours ago). Not very impressed, but not surprised either.

    For now I'm hoping for Dell to get their units flowing in time to have something in the Outlet for Black Friday. Otherwise maybe I'll just go for a Sager.

    I agree with the above post, the base GPU is frankly crap for the price you are paying.

    Any news on Haswell Elitebooks? I'm waiting to purchase a new laptop, it will either be an Elitebook or Latitude depending which one is first to market with the best specs and prices.

    Are they even going to introduce 4th gen Intel on Elitebook 8570/8770? I doubt it.

    Are the Zbooks replacing Elitebooks?

    Yes, seems they are, that's why the question about 8770w. It will probably be discontinued?
