The tested unit was equipped with an Intel Core i5-3437U processor running at 1.9 GHz with 4GB of 1,600-MHz RAM and 64-bit Windows 8 Pro. In performance tests with 64-bit Geekbench 2.3, the Revolve's top score of 7,415 put it in eighth place in the CRN Test Center's Top 10 Laptops. It joins HP's EliteBook 8560p, which remains in sixth place.
But unlike its EliteBook brethren, the Revolve 810 delivers extremely fast startup times. From a cold boot, the machine was ready to accept input in about 9 seconds. And its wake-from-sleep time is measured in milliseconds; once the lid is opened, the system is ready before hands can reach the keyboard.
