5.0 out of 5 stars Posibly the best Laptop I have used., 16 Nov 2008
John Nunn (Warwickshire) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Compaq 8510w Mobile Workstation (Electronics)
This is a wonderful piece of kit that does just what it claims to. The build quality is superb. I am very demanding when it comes to laptop computers, as a software developer I tend to run the machine to it's maximum potential.

Here the 15.4" screen is a high quality with great colour depth although not as good as the Sony 17" screens it is more than capable when performing image manipulation for a higher resolution I would recomend looking at the model with a 1920*1200 screen (HP Compaq Mobile Workstation 8510w - Core 2 Duo T7700 / 2.4 GHz - Centrino Pro - RAM 2 GB - HDD 120 GB - DVD±RW (+R double layer) / DVD-RAM - Gigabit Ethernet - WLAN : Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, 802.11 a/b/g/n (draft) - TPM - fingerprint reader, SmartCard reade...)

The Hard drive is set so on first boot you have a choice between Windows XP Professional or Windows Visa Buisness and then a choice between 32bit and 64bit editions. If you intend to windows vista then I would recomend upgrading the memory. This device is actually upgradable to 8GB of memory not 4GB as the Amazon spec claims, take a look on the HP site.

The only gadget missing is an eSATA port which if you want fast external storage is a must these days, but this can be added esily via the included PCMCIA card slot.
