Yesterday, I received an early Christmas present, an EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation from HP. I always love new toys, so unboxing them is always a treat for me, especially when that toy is an awesome new laptop computer.

The EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation that I received was a really high-end configuration that has an Intel Core i7-740QM (1.73ghz, 6mb L3 Cache), 8GB of memory, a 17? LED-backlight DREAMCOLOR display, NVIDIA Quadro 5000m video card, 500GB HD, Full-sized backlit keyboard, and a 230w external power adapter. Needless to say this is the fastest laptop that I’ve ever used. Even faster than my 15 inch MacBook Pro; not to mention my 27 inch iMac. I’ll provide a full review of this sweet laptop within a few weeks. In the meantime, feel free to watch my unboxing below. I’m like a little kid of Christmas morning, pajamas and all.

Disclosure: This laptop was provided to me for free by HP to review on this blog.
