Reviews for the HP EliteBook 840 G2

85% HP EliteBook 840 G2 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Not without flaw. The EliteBook was good to start with and has been slightly improved owing to the Broadwell processor, which results in a longer battery life due to lower power consumption. Unfortunately, HP has not taken care of the laptop's shortcoming - the screen.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.
