The new machine is called the EliteBook 8740W, it is a large machine measuring in at 397.5 x 285.5 x 36.5 mm, and it has a gunmetal finish for better looks than the typical business focused machine. The screen of the rig is a 17-inch unit with WXGA+ or WUXGA display options.
Powering the rig is a choice of several Intel Core i5 or i7 CPUs. You can opt for up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 600GB HDDs. A SSD with up to 256GB is available. The machine can be ordered with a DVD burner or a Blu-ray drive and can be fitted with several NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics options. The rig will ship in April starting at $1999.
