[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.

HP EliteBook 640 G9 review
Source: Laptop Media English
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.

78% HP Elitebook 640 G10 review: Compact business notebook with 4G
Source: PC World English
The HP Elitebook 640 G10 is an affordable business notebook that delivers reliable standard quality in terms of workmanship and performance. However its most striking feature is the 4G modem. You won’t find better alternatives in this price range. The HP Elitebook 640 is a classic work laptop for the desk or on-the-go. It offers a compact 14-inch format, but still plenty of connections for office peripherals and a 4G modem as an extra. The Intel XMM 7560R supports LTE-Advanced Pro with Cat 16, which theoretically enables up to 1 Gbit/s in download. The business notebook also offers the latest standard fare from a technical perspective, with a long 36-month warranty as a bonus for professional users.

HP EliteBook 640 G10 review – has quiet fan, good upgradability, and long battery life
Source: Laptop Media English
The HP EliteBook 640 G10 is a business device that can attract future buyers with its good comfort under load and capable cooling solution that allows high CPU frequencies even during max processor stress. The keyboard is also suitable for countless hours of typing because of the long key travel and the clicky feedback. The metal chassis feels premium to the touch but its overall solidness isn’t the best we’ve seen. The 16:9 1080p IPS display (LG Display LGD0724) is all you need for normal work. It offers wide viewing angles and there is no sign of PWM usage so you can use the laptop for prolonged periods of work without sensing eye strain (you have to take regular breaks from time to time). However, the panel color coverage and maximum brightness are unimpressive. The upgradability is surprisingly good for a 14-incher – two DDR4 SODIMMs for up to 64GB RAM and two M.2 slots.

14.00:

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.
