HP Compaq Mobile Workstation 8710w
Laptop Set Up
The HP Compaq 8710w Mobile Workstation redefines power on-the-move by combining the best in visualization and computational power into a sleek design with a 17-inch diagonal display to form HP's highest performing mobile workstation.
The Intel Centrino Pro processor technology featuring a Core 2 Duo chip can run demanding applications with true 64-bit computing and support for up to 4 GB of memory which you can upgrade from the generous 2GB already installed.
Running XP as its Operating System - a rarity from a new machine these days but XP is still as popular as ever - and with 17' TFT screen with a HD busting resolution of 1680 x 1050, the 8710W is not only a powerful performer but also a multi media giant as the pin sharp pictures will show you.
The near 1080P screen is controlled by a NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M - 512 MB dedicated graphics chip which is more than capable of handling any graphically heavy workloads and playing the latest Direct X10 games. So fire up Photoshop and liquify photos to your hearts content!
With all this in a desktop replacement that would look at home next to any set up, the 8710W is the thinking persons choice when it comes to big screen power.
