HP EliteBook 8460p Notebook Review

A few months ago we posted our review of the HP ProBook 6360b, the latest HP "b" series notebook and their first in a 13.3" form factor. Today we'll be looking at another business-class notebook from HP, the EliteBook 8460p.

As the name suggests, it's a step above the standard business-minded 6360b and as such, it's billed as a Large Enterprise Business product. The "professional" EliteBook retails for about $300 more than the ProBook, but is that premium worthwhile?
