Reviews for the HP EliteBook Revolve 810

84% Review HP EliteBook Revolve 810 Convertible | Notebookcheck
Convertible, premium-style. Hewlett-Packard presents us with a strong contender for the market segment of convertibles, a wolf in magnesium clothing. An ultrabook chassis, mobile internet and sturdiness are supposed to win over its potential customers. Our review will show whether this plan is poised to work out...
Hands on: HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 review
Source: Techradar English
The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 takes the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," to heart -- perhaps a little too close. Little has changed here in terms of design, and that's a good thing, though it still doesn't surmount hybrid laptops' biggest hurdle. Aside from hopping onto Haswell and adding room for tons of RAM, this convertible laptop hasn't changed enough on the inside, either. A sharper display would help the EliteBook Revolve catch up with the full HD competition at the very least. We'll see whether this hybrid laptop stacks up regardless in our full review.

HP hopes its EliteBook Revolve 810 will stand out from the crowd, but with prices from £1,642 (including VAT), it doesn't offer value for money. We think many businesses would rather pay less money for a brand new Yoga Pro 2 or MacBook Pro, which will have longer battery life and better display.

As hybrid devices go the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 is a solid choice for businesses in need of a high-performance hybrid tablet-ultrabook. But with even the most basic version costing a hefty £1,368, the top-end performance comes with a premium price tag. As it is based on the previous generation of Intels' Core processor line, the Revolve also offers less than a full working day of battery life, meaning it's not ideal for businesses seeking to kit out workers who spend most of their time on the move.

HP's convertible ultrabook does offer a few unique features including a more rugged and durable construction for the EliteBook Revolve but it is held back so much by its pricing. The system does offer some impressive storage performance but the storage space is a bit limiting and the bright display is hampered by its lower resolution.

The Revolve proves there’s still life left for durable business convertibles. While its prime competitor is Lenovo’s ThinkPad Helix, the two devices are actually very different. The Helix is thinner, offers a fully removable display for more convenient tablet use, and lasts longer on a charge.

A long time ago, laptops used to very occasionally convert into tablets but we never made a big deal out of it. HP’s EliteBook Revolve 810 is a good first step toward a very portable business laptop-tablet hybrid, but lack of a killer battery life hurts it.

A convertible tablet for the business set, the HP Elitebook Revolve 810 applies the Elitebook’s design sensibilities—rugged industrial-strength construction, business tools like vPro—and applies them to the latest trend of small, portable Windows 8 convertibles. The HP Elitebook Revolve 810 combines industrial-strength construction with portability and convenience, making it a solid convertible laptop for the business user on the go.

If your business use demands the convenience and portability of a tablet, but can't afford to sacrifice durability and business features, the HP Elitebook Revolve 810 is a solid performer with rugged construction and a business-minded feature set. Whether it's as a tablet or a laptop, it provides a blend of productive capabilities and business-focused features that put it on par with the Editors' Choice Microsoft Surface Pro.

As for the EliteBook Revolve, at first glance its $1,449 price looks steep, particularly with Lenovo offering a ThinkPad Twist for $1,079 with a comparable Core i5 and 128GB SSD. But when you begin to add up the 810's charms—sleek but rugged chassis, simple yet versatile design, comfortable keyboard, strong application performance, long battery life, enterprise security features—it begins to look more reasonable.

The design of the EliteBook Revolve 810 has a magnesium and aluminum chassis that has a soft-touch finish. It makes the laptop both comfortable to hold as well as sturdy too. The silver finish hides fingerprints and looks sleek. It measures 11.2 x 8.4 x 0.8-inches (wdh) and weighs 3-pounds, so it's lighter than your average notebook but heavier than a tablet. So the size and weight of the Revolve 810 is another reason that it falls right between conventional tablets and laptops. When you use the laptop as a tablet, it does feel very thin for its size.

With a durable, attractive 3-pound chassis, fast SSD, and an excellent backlit keyboard, the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 has all the amenities a road warrior could want. For $1,449, though, we'd prefer longer battery life. If you're not sold on the tablet-only paradigm just yet, the Revolve 810 lets you dip your toes into a touch-centric future, while still retaining all the best features of the current generation of ultraportable business notebooks.

Comment

Model:

This small 1.3 kg convertible (tablet/laptop hybrid) designed for business is rugged and portable. It is built to withstand hard knocks with its scratch-resistant coated magnesium-alloy chassis and Gorilla Glass display. The swivel hinge, which allows changing between tablet mode and laptop mode, made from stainless steel. The keyboard is spill resistant with a drain at the bottom side. The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 was designed with military toughness in mind and it achieves this with style. The 11.6 inch display offers a resolution of 1366x768, which is suitable for business users who do not need a full HD machine.

The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 has also been equipped with features that are more commonly found in smartphones. An accelerometer, e-compass, gyroscope and ambient light sensor make life easier and provide a better user experience. Performance is driven by the third-generation 1.9 GHz Intel Core i5-3437U with 4 GB of RAM. This makes it about the same as similar devices out there. Graphics is not eye-catching and gorgeous, but focuses on business and will handle office applications and web browsing tasks well. The Battery life is great and the laptop can easily last over 8 hours with moderate use. All things considered, the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 is on par with the best of its class.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

3437U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.9 - 2.9 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1200 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.352 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
