Not all businessmen require a small, light and mobile notebook/tablet hybrid. Some require a sturdy and tough powerhouse capable of running high-end software smoothly. Despite being made for more demanding users, the EliteBook is by no means heavy. It weighs only 1.33 kg and this is mainly due to the fact that it uses only magnesium instead of metal.

The EliteBook comes with an Intel i5-4200U processor, an integrated HD Graphics 4400 card, 16 GB of RAM and 500 GB hard drive making it suitable for heavier than casual usage. The 12.5 inch LCD screen features a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels, which is very average. Most screens these days have better screen resolution than this.

One of the more attractive features of the EliteBook is its connectivity. Besides basic 802.11 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, the EliteBook also features LTE connectivity, which is a rather interesting function to have for a laptop.

It also comes with 3 USB ports, 1 mini display port, the basic headphones and microphone ports, RJ-45, docking connector and a VGA port. All in all, the HP EliteBook 820 is a pretty average laptop, being pretty good in all sections but not really perfecting any. Although it is rather light, the battery life of the laptop is not as good as it should be, reducing its mobility.
