I'm writing this email on my work PC, a Core i5 HP EliteBook 8540W (Win7).
It's now 4 years old (has a Vista sticker :) ) and I'm looking forward to
an upgrade, mainly because this thing is _heavy_. Bear that in mind, if
you're thinking of going for one of these.

That said, the build quality is good, the display is decent (although I'd
certainly want a higher resolution for my own purposes) battery life is
slightly above average and it has a three-button touchpad! Linux support
should be very good but I have no direct experience here.
