A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving 'mobile' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You'll work faster because you can view more information at once and it's great for multimedia!

The HP EliteBook 8740w XT914UA is billed as a Mobile Workstation, but mobile is not the first word that springs to mind when you look at it. It's absolutely huge, with a 17.3in display – and with a 16:10 aspect ratio rather than 16:9 – and despite HP's...
Bottom line The sheer size and mass of the HP EliteBook 8740w XT914UA means it isn't the kind of laptop you'd want to be carrying around too often. It's a great choice for anyone with the need for high-end graphics performance, though it isn't quite as speedy as o...
