I got my version off ebay for a reasonable rate, still in good shape. running a quadcore i7-3720 QM (4c,8th) and same K1000m reviewed here.

Battery sucks, i think its a standard 6cell, used and with no optimus, it guzzles it fast.

That said, did a few modifications:
took the memory from 8 to 32gb
swapped the 500gb hd for a 480gb SSD
Have a 72wh 8c battery on order to replace the 6c, and a 100wh battery slice to go on the bottom. this should make it mobile enough and provide the power.

scoping out a possibility of a fhd display and a k2000m gpu as future upgrades. handles adobe premiere quite nicely.

Powerfull laptop, only i write allot of documents for work and programming codes. the only issue what i have is that the backspace button and the Numlock button are very close.

Had mine for almost a year:

i7-3610QM @2.3GHz
Put a 500GB SSD in it - 500MB/s Transfer!  Not 250 MB/s

This thing moves! 

Had an HP 8510w before this.  Lasted me four years and was still strong enough to be passed on the normal mortals in the office. 

Best machines around.

Had my 8570w for a year now bought at £1196 (i53360M, 1 SSD + 1HDD/ AMD graphics/16gb ram) - fantastic - never misses a beat.  A true workstation which runs CAD programs effortlessly (Solidworks, Catia, Inventor) and a host of other graphics and rendering programs.  The i5 with high clock speed is far better for Solidworks than the low speed quad core, it handles rendering on Keyshot fine too but I don't do much on it (I have a dedicated desktop for that).

Build quality is superb and it handles being chucked around in the workshop.

Really great laptop, I would also never trade it in!

So...purchased an Elitebook 8570w. 32GB RAM, i7-3840QM @ 2.8GHz, Nvidia Quadro K2000M, 750GB HD @ 7200rpm. Everything else standard.

Wasn't the main contention that it's not a good value for the money? I happened upon it, HP-refurbished (yes, not new, but still under warranty) with zero blemishes and zero issues, for $1480 (1140 Euro).

Liftoff achieved. No, not the fan - I changed the BIOS settings, hah.

I use one of these with 32GB Ram i7 and dual ssd's and it just about achieves lift off. I wouldn't trade this notebook for anything else out there.

Wow, I don't get how this laptop can get an 88% Very Good rating!  At the end of the day it's just a dual core CPU, a lowly 4GB RAM, no SSD, a professional graphics card based on the lowly 630M, no Optimus support, all wrapped up in a heavy 3kg case that seems unnecessarily heavy for a 15 inch portable laptop!  How they can charge 1840 euros for such hardware seems too steep to me.  I think you could get such hardware in a laptop for well less than a 1000 Euro easily.

The only good points I can see is the good screen, although a stuck pixel!  And I guess the build quality is good, so will have good longevity & resilience, and will feel good to use; but still, it's 3kg, too heavy for a 15inch portable laptop.

This laptop just feels like a rip off, and I don't think it should get such a high rating, especially in view of it's seemingly insane price.

The price is outrageous for what you get.

The contender. The EliteBook 8570w is a premium notebook designed to compete in the high-performance realm of professional workstations. Our review model doesn't feature top-of-the-line components, however - it's equipped with an Intel Core i5 CPU, Nvidia Quadro K1000M GPU, and a HD+ display.  Can this less powerful version of the series stand up to its competition?
