Worst keyboard ever used. Small, unusable cursor keys (especially up-down), even distances among keys forces user to always check which button do they press. It is not by chance that over the decades the function keys are divided into 3 sections.

Been using my 8470p (i7-3540, Win7 x64) for a week. Was a Dell Latitude user for the previous 15 years. Absolutely love the 8470p. Terrific keyboard and touchpad. Build quality is top notch. 2nd hard drive module is SATA connected (vs. USB) and, as such, is very fast. HP SoftPaq tool makes getting the latest drivers VERY easy. Mine is set up dual-boot: primary drive is Win7 Enterprise X64, secondary, 750 GB Module is Win8.1. Both work great.

Wish the trackpoint had a middle scroller button like the Thinkpad and EliteBook Mobile Workstation models. The little LED light at the top of LCD that is supposed to light up the keyboard is a joke. The ThinkPad models have a much brighter one. Disappointed that the WiFi Button (dedicated button above the Pause/Break button) doesn't include options to control WiFi, WiFi+BT, or BT only like it did with the Dell Latitude series - if you press the button, it turns of WiFi AND BT, no choice.

Tips:

* Spend the extra on the Intel Centrino 6300 WiFi adapter. It is WELL worth it.
* Learn how to use the SoftPaq utility to get the latest drivers.
* Don't spend the extra on the discrete graphics. The Intel integrated graphics are very close in performance and will save battery life and dollars.

This laptop has the worst usability. The touch doesn't response to my touch, but my palm hovering will move the mouse. No HDMI, but thank goodness for the stupid phone jack! It's like a retro back to the 90' laptop design. No external volume control, but thank goodness for browser quick button. Who design this thing? Better yet, who would buy this thing. Oh that's right, my super smart IT department.

hate it! When I use the keyboard it drives me crazy to write something. Cursor jumps sort of randomly around text (maybe due to my palm being close to touchpad). This is the worst notebook I ever had when it comes to typing.

the warranty for all Elitebooks is actually 3 years, only the battery receives a 1 year warranty, but the machine itself has a 3 year warranty
taken for HPs website:
HP Services offers limited 3-year and 1-year standard parts and labor warranty, pick-up or carry-in, and toll-free 24x7 hardware technical phone support (depending on model)
1-year limited warranty on primary battery
On-site service and warranty upgrades are also available.

I am almost convinced to this Laptop. I am a software developer working on some big Java projects running multiple Eclipse IDE instances. I need performance as well as mobility.

I am concerned about the display area (14'' with 1600x900 resolution) against my current (15.6'' with 1366x768) for running the Eclipse IDE.

Do you think this is a wise choice?

Business and more? About a year ago we put the predecessor model, the 8460p, to the test. The manufacturer HP now introduces the Elitebook 8470p as the successor, although it has the same old look, the internal components have been revamped.
