Reviews for the HP EliteBook 745 G5 3UN74EA
Very good disappointment. AMD Ryzen, mostly known for offering CPUs for consumer products, now want to compete with Intel in the business market. The EliteBook 745 G5, based on the very good EliteBook 840 G5, seems to fit the bill - at least on paper. You can read in this detailed review if it is convincing in reality as well!
The EliteBook 745 G5 is a fairly mixed bag. On one hand, we like its overall looks, feature set, relatively light body and powerful hardware combination that’ll make short work of most office-related tasks.

The HP EliteBook 745 G5 is sleek and elegant. However, it has a couple of unsatisfying aspects to it. I don’t think I’d trade in a short battery life span in favor of a light body, premium-looking design, and excellent audio output. They pointing stick in between the keyboard is a downer as well, but it’s not much of a significant issue, unlike the battery life.

The EliteBook 745 G5 has plenty to offer business users with strict demands on security and privacy, although it struggles in other areas against rivals.

The HP EliteBook 745 G5 has some impressive features, including a solid build and a good array of ports. The keyboard is comfortable to use, although the cut-out for the pointing stick is oversized and makes typing with the G, H and B keys awkward. Unfortunately the screen is a big let-down, lacking in both brightness and in colour vibrancy. Also, based on my real-world testing, the battery is unlikely to support a full day's work.

The EliteBook 745 G5 is a tale of two laptops: one, a beautifully-made professional notebook with lots of tools for keeping your data safe, the other a disappointing misstep with a budget-tier screen. The strengths just about outweigh the weaknesses overall, but there are better-rounded alternatives.
