Comment

Series: The HP Elitebook 700 series belongs to HP's Elitebook family and consist of three models which are HP EliteBook 725, HP EliteBook 745 and HP EliteBook 755. All of the laptops under this series are running on AMD PRO A-Series processors. These come with different display sizes, which are 12.5 inch, 14 inch, and 15.6 inch. Besides that, all the laptops have the option to choose a touch or a non-touch display. They also comes with various connectivity features including VGA, Display Port, and RJ-45.

This series consists of very lightweight and thin laptops. The HP Elitebook 755 with 15.6 inch touchscreen is the heaviest, but it only weighs 2,06 kg and is 2.06 cm high. Thus, it is very easy to commute around with it. Note: touch models are usually heavier ant thicker than non-touch ones. All other laptops of this series are less than 2 cm high and weigh under 2 kg, which lives up to the claim of being lightweight and thin. Furthermore, you can also select many other options including operating system, processor, internal storage, up to 16 GB RAM and different types of displays. Thus, this series is clearly designed to satisfy a wide range of users.

AMD Radeon R6 (Kaveri): Integrated GPU on select AMD Kaveri APUs. Based on the GCN architecture with 384 shader units and a core clock up to 654 MHz.

12.5":

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.
