Sponsor Spotlight: HP Elitebook
HP Mobile workstations have been pushing the boundaries of mobile design and engineering for years, expanding workstation capability out to the field with robust solutions for the most mobile Autodesk users. The HP EliteBook 8740W Mobile Workstation pushes the boundaries out even further with new Intel i5 and i7 family processors and available 17 inch HP DreamColor technology displays.
Accurate, lifelike color
HP DreamColor technology, when combined with professional grade, ISV-certified graphics from NVIDIA and ATI, offers the most accurate, lifelike, consistent colors possible, so your collaborators and customers see exactly what your designs will look like when produced. With a 17-inch display, you have ample display space not only to work, but to present to small groups. When combined with HP DreamColor capable printers and plotters, the HP EliteBook 8740W is capable of outputting hardcopy media that is absolutely consistent with screen output, for maximum impact in large scale visualizations.
Do you typically work with large models and simulation files? No problem. Quad-core configurations based on Intel’s newest i5 and i7 families of processors can handle up to four GB of memory per core for a maximum of 16 GB of RAM to handle all but the most massive whole-system simulations. Dedicated graphics memory up to 1GB ensures smooth display performance, even with these mammoth files.
Working late in hotel rooms or on overnight airplane flights can be difficult. Lighting is often less than optimum and the keyboard can be difficult to navigate. The EliteBook 8740W features a backlit keyboard to simplify use in low light without disturbing your flight neighbors or hotel room-mates.
Putting the war back into road warrior
The HP EliteBook 8740w is built to handle whatever you can dish out. In fact, it is engineered to meet or exceed military standards (MIL-STD 810G) for vibration, dust, humidity, altitude and extreme temperatures. Its Magnesium alloy framed, Duracase construction, hardened steel pin axels and scratch resistant DuraFinish ensure that the EliteBook 8740w not only keeps working, but keeps looking good doing so, even in harsh environments like construction sites, factory floors, airports, truck cabs and even in your home office. HP 3D DriveGuard technology ensures data security and integrity against accidental bumps, drops, shocks and the general abuse of road duty. So you can keep working, with confidence, wherever you need to go.
