HP EliteBook 850 G8 review – premium business machine for niche consumers
Source: Laptop Media English
HP is setting up to be one of the lead business notebook manufacturers. However, in order to do so, it has to overcome the fierce competition in the face of Dell (with their Latitude series), and Lenovo (with the ThinkPads). Arguably, the latter offers one of the biggest portfolios. This ensures that all of the price gaps are filled, and you have the best ThinkPad for your price range. But we are not here to talk about Lenovo’s gap fillers. We are here to tell you if you should be even interested in the EliteBook 850 G8. And the answer is yes. All of the ease-of-life managing tools are on point. You also get supreme security and privacy features. And from a consumer standpoint – it comes with a great optional UHD display.
