KSP on a HP EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation


Recommended Posts

In a previous post I asked advice about the suitability of a 2011 HP EliteBook Mobile Workstation 8740w (17" WUXGA). They are occasionally offered on eBay for ~$400US.

Replies were almost unanimously against the purchase but I went ahead anyway as I need a mil-spec notebook for my photography work.
Don't have a SSD installed yet but am pleasantly surprised at the performance.
I know it won't hold a candle to a cryogenically-cooled overclocked desktop but it's good enough for this space cadet :)

383 parts/9 stages but first 2 are dropped tanks only, six Emu's boost to orbit then KS-68 Mars cryo engines circularize and do the interplanetary injection and midcourse burns, maybe enough to make orbit.
Still being tested...
