Reviews for the HP EliteBook 640 G9, i5-1235U

[REVIEW] HP EliteBook 640 G9 - HP pulles off something special with this one!
Source: Laptop Media English
The EliteBook 640 G9 is very similar to the more expensive EliteBook 840 G9, with great build quality, keyboard, and upgradeability. While it lacks the extra pixels that the 16:10 aspect ratio offers, you’d be more than fine with the FHD panel that’s available. All in all, you get a good-performing notebook with good connectivity and features for a reduced price, which is all you can ask for.

Speaking of graphics, you can get the machine with a GeForce MX570. We haven’t had it in our configuration, but we’ve tested it on other devices, and let us tell you – it is crazy good. While this device features a good port selection, it still lacks an SD card slot. LTE is on the table, however, with 5G reserved for the more expensive EliteBook 840 G9. Without a doubt, the 840 G9 is a higher quality product than the 640 G9. However, the more affordable device really puts in a fight and comes up on top on occasions. And if you want great value, check out the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 4.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
