HP EliteBook 820 G3 Subnotebook Review

85% HP EliteBook 820 G3 Subnotebook Review

Let down by the display. The third generation of the HP EliteBook 820 is a compact subnotebook with a 12.5-inch screen, which is designed for business environments. Our review configuration, however, is unbalanced, because besides good performance, you also get a very poor TN screen. Coil whining is a problem for the small notebook as well.
