You can also configure the w with a solid state drive SSD if you need extreme speed and resistance to vibration.
In the w's case, we have a hard time finding reasons for complaint in this regard.

Dark surfaces everywhere, only interrupted by a few blue turquoise colored LED status indicators, mocks modesty in the office.

Over the massive looking hinges that have a sufficient hold on the heavy display in practically every position, we work our way to the display's upper edge, including the installed webcam.

The mandatory jacks for headphone and microphone are on the front in the mouse pad's area, where the cardreader 2in1: Again, the Elitebook doesn't have to be reproached in terms the given interface circumference. But we do have to judge the port distribution more severely. As can be seen well on the pictures, almost all ports on the left and right are located rather far front — in particular the USB hoard on the right. You might frequently be annoyed about disturbing cables on the case's left or right when the notebook is used without a docking station.
