No doubt the HP EliteBook 820 will appeal to those who appreciate an Ultrabook with upgradable internals and a removable battery. Once staples of the laptop world, these useful features have largely gone away with the drive toward thinner and lighter Ultrabooks. Even better, your employees won't groan when you hand them a bulky and ugly clunker: the EliteBook G820 is a slim and light 3 lb. machine that's good looking.

HP EliteBook 820 G1 Small Business Laptop Review
Source: Small Business Computing English
Laptop manufacturers embrace all sorts of eye-catching features these days, from a uni-body aluminum chassis to screens with retina-level resolution that you can touch and swivel. But with its EliteBook 820 G1, HP courts the sensible-shoe-wearing business crowd. With an emphasis on understated, solid design over flashy style, the EliteBook 820 prefers to be the small business laptop you use to get the job done rather than the center of attention.

Sturdy, streamlined, secure: HP packs business features into a lighter-weight, 12.6-inch laptop
Source: Techradar English
There are some very nice touches on the HP EliteBook 820 G1, especially the way it fits an Ethernet port into something much thinner than many business travellers are used to. This isn't the brick you'd expect from a business-class notebook. The design isn't groundbreaking, but it still looks and feels good, especially with the backlit keyboard. And being able to snap off the back without needing any tools to change the battery, swap out the storage for an SSD or swap in new modules will make whoever fixes your business's PCs far happier. It's not the cheapest business-grade notebook but it is good value if you need the sturdy, secure but still somewhat stylish option.

The HP Elitebook 820 is a needed departure from the company’s tradition. Though fans of older systems may balk at the new notebook’s plastic chassis, the new design is lighter, thinner and less expensive, all of which are positive traits. And, like most previous Elitebooks, this model has a standard three-year warranty.

It’s hard not to be impressed with the performance and upgradeability of the EliteBook 820 G1. It may not be as bendy as Yoga Pro 2 or eye-catching as the MacBook Pro range - but it should comfortably outlast both - an important factor in enterprise environments.

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.
