Hewlett-Packard divided its business notebooks into three groups earlier this year. We have already examined one system in the Balanced Mobility range, the 6715b. Next up is a notebook from the Performance range, the 8710p. The other range is called Ultra-Light, and we will review one of these systems in due course. Prices for different configurations of the 8710p start at £1,121 rising to £1,219 (ex. VAT).
