HP EliteBook 8560w LY528EA Review posted on
15.6 inch Workstation Notebook
Though the display is a bit small for the chores users normally perform at a workstation, the HP EliteBook 8560w is otherwise a very capable unit, and it's affordably priced for its ilk.

The HP EliteBook 8560w provides fantastic workstation performance and a gorgeous 1080p display in an attractive and durable package. However, we highly recommend a pre-configured model to our pricey configuration. Some may prefer the Lenovo ThinkPad W520 workstation because it offers much longer battery life along with a better pointing stick. But if you want a more modern design and better audio quality to go along with your muscle, the EliteBook 8560w is a smart choice.

A record-setting WordlBench performance is backed up with excellent features, but the 15.6-inch display is small for its 1080p resolution.
