There’s a special segment of notebooks that are aimed at people who absolutely need to have the fastest processors and video cards possible while still retaining the mobility side of the notebook equation. HP’s Elitebook series of portable workstations are especially aimed at these individuals, and can probably best most typical gaming rigs today in raw computing power. The newest entry to that particular product line is their 8770w and  8570w. While the PC company hasn’t released solid specs yet, opting instead to give us vague product descriptions like “highest-performing professional graphics and extreme processing power”. Nevertheless, you can expect these monstrous notebooks to sport 17.3- and 15.3-inch displays respectively, as well as carry workstation level graphics and processors, all stuffed in a frame that’s rife with connectors and ports.
