Reviews for the HP EliteBook 840 G5-3JX61EA

87.8% HP EliteBook 840 G5 (i7-8550U, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Privacy screen at the touch of a button.When it comes to Hewlett Packard's top-of-the-line model from their EliteBook 840 G5 series, the manufacturer is not fiddling about. On board you will find a very bright IPS display with a privacy screen, an LTE modem, 32 GB of RAM and an NVMe SSD. HP appears to have set their sights somewhat lower in terms of battery life—some of the competition has more to offer here.

Compact, yet massively powerful and feature-filled, the HP EliteBook 840 G5 avoids design showboating and focuses entirely on providing the best core user experience. For the power user who doesn’t want a 2-in-1 system, this is one of the best pure ultrabooks currently available, although if you need a laptop with more graphics processing power you should look elsewhere.
