  • The EliteBook 8460p and 8560p are each housed inside HP's own DuraCase, which has met MIL-STD 8710G military-standard testing specifications to combat against wear and tear.

  • The major differences between the 8460p and 8560p are the 14- and 15.6-inch diagonal lengths for the HD LED-backlit displays, 4.56- and 6.10-pound weights and the 8460p boasts a staggering battery life of up to 32 hours.

  • When it comes to business work, some of the extra handy redesigns include the spill-resistant keyboard with drains, the fingerprint reader has been shifted farther to the right side and there are fewer buttons at the top of the keyboard with more of an emphasis on function and hot keys. Users also have three options for a more secure login: face recognition via webcam, using the fingerprint reader and a good old-fashioned password.
