The 15 Best Products Of 2011


Notebook: HP Elitebook 8560p

We like that notebooks are getting infinitely thinner and lighter, but HP’s Elitebook 8560p -- more of a mobile workstation -- simply couldn’t be ignore for this year’s products of the year list. A full menu of media support (four USB 2.0 slots, a USB 3.0 slot, HDMI, Ethernet, etc.), with support for CPUs up to an Intel Core i7-2760QM at 2.40 GHz and 6 MB of L3 cache making it a big, honking system, just helps you get work done -- at about $1,000.
