I received one hp 9470m laptop for Work but with a 1600x900 screen resolución, a 256gb SSD, and 8gb of ram. This Computer is super fast, and it's very light compared with the normal bussines Computers I used to have. I will recommend it for Work; turning it on and off is fast. I used to avoid using My Work Computers at home because the customised OS windows My company uses take a lot of time to boots up, and power off. But not with this laptop. Now I'm ready to Work in less than a minute. I really recommend the HP 9470m for Work . I'm really Happy with this Computer.
who wants to kill one's ears? I own it now since 2 weeks (heavy user) and compare it to an X1 and an Apple 15" Retina (all equiped "to the max"). None is louder than the HP (by far). However, none is quicker in booting its OS (Win than the HP. Would I buy it agin? No way. My ears Need a rest now, I gonna Switch back to my macbook pro with Parallels running Win 8 there. Even my Mac Pro (Early 2008, 8 cores) is not as loud as the 9470m...
Great review as usual, and awesome notebook (I'm surprised it only got 85% compared to something like 89% and 90% for the Macbook Air and Asus Zenbook). The service bay is something that really stands out about this machine, I have been avoiding other ultrabooks which have soldered RAM, soldered SSD or proprietary SSD, fixed battery, etc but the HP 9470m is different from all of them.
Compact business. Full connectivity, almost 8 hours of battery runtime, perfect input feedback and a noble aluminum-magnesium chassis. A challenge for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the gathered premium ultrabooks?
