The glass-topped touchpad is first-rate, with smooth cursor motion, tapping, and gesture control and not-too-stiff, not-too-noisy mouse buttons below—and above, with the latter pair of buttons belonging to the pointing stick located at the intersection of the G, H, and B keys. The concave pointing stick isn't quite as successful as the touchpad (or Lenovo's TrackPoints), but should please users who want a choice of pointing devices.
We don't say "solid construction" lightly—like other EliteBooks, the 8460p is a business-rugged system, built to withstand military tests for shock, vibration, dust, and heat. It's not as invulnerable as fully rugged systems such as the Panasonic Toughbook CF-31 ($4,843 street, 3.5 stars) or Dell Latitude E6420 XFR $1,439.00 at Dell Small Business (3.5 stars), but it's built to shrug off the scuffs and bumps of travel—along with inadvertent liquid spills, thanks to a spill-resistant keyboard and drain hole in the bottom.
whisper quiet (cannot even hear it unless you try)
nice features (trackpad, eraser mouse, keyboard layout, etc.)
battery (lasts about 4 hours)
no stock HDMI
***design (the front palm rest CUTS into the hand and is very uncomfortable) - MAJOR (-) ***
no backlit keyboard (little light next to camera is functional, but it's not really bright)
I have this laptop for work - it isnt bad...a bit heavy, but nice looking, and seems to be pretty stable. Hard to give an idea how fast it is considering how much my company locks things down....but overall not a bad laptop at all.
Also, what i really like about this one is the docking station - since i use external monitors, it is really nice to be able to just dock and go.
