The 17.3" EliteBook F1U74US 8770w Mobile Workstation with DreamColor Display from HP is a powerful mobile computer designed to meet the demands of visual-media professionals.

The computer is built with 16GB of DDR3 RAM and is expandable to 32GB, giving you ample memory for frequently accessed data.

An nVIDIA Quadro K5000M graphics card with 4GB of dedicated video memory provide provides workstation-class graphics performance with OpenGL support.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit is the installed operating system. A license and DVDs for installing Windows 8 Professional are also included, giving you the flexibility to choose the Windows version that is right for you. Switching between versions will require you to uninstall the existing version on the computer. Data that you wish to save must be backed up before uninstalling operating systems.

DreamColor Display
Using the same technology from the HP DeamColor LP2480zx Professional Display monitor, the 8770w's DreamColor display comes factory-calibrated for high color accuracy, making the 8770w ideal for animation, video editing, color-grading, visual effects, or other color-critical work. With 10-bits per color channel, the DreamColor display produces over one billion colors, so you'll notice smoother gradations and reduced color banding.
Mobile Display Assistant Software
Using the included HP Mobile Display Assistant 3.0 software, the DreamColor display can be calibrated to match standard pre-set color spaces with the click of a mouse. Pre-set color spaces include: Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec. 601, Rec. 709, and DCI P3 Emulation. You can also choose to use the native display color space for the maximum degree of color the monitor offers, or make a customized user setting. The benefit of being able to change the color space of the display is that you will immediately know how your content will look when viewed by your intended audience, whether on an HDTV, digital cinema projector, the web, or in print.
Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Processing Power
The 2.9GHz Intel Core i7 3920XM Extreme Edition processor provides powerful quad-core performance. Hyper-Threading technology allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core. With clock speeds up to 2.9GHz, 8MB of L3 cache, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.8GHz, this processor is capable of running professional graphics-creation and editing applications.

With multi-display technology, you can use up to four screen at once for multi-tasking, or use the four screens as one for high-resolution work.
256GB SSD & 24GB Flash Cache
A 256GB solid state drive (SSD) gives you up to faster system performance than a traditional hard drive. When using video editing applications, you can perform demanding tasks right from your internal storage. With no moving parts, the SSD is also quiet. A 24GB Intel SLC mSATA cache module allows the system to boot up quickly. If you need more internal storage, a second hard drive slot is easily accessible through a screw-less sliding mechanism on the bottom of the computer. The optical disc drive can also be removed from the upgrade bay and replaced with additional storage.
