Reviews for the HP EliteBook 865 G9
HP's EliteBook 865 G9 is a high-quality business notebook with the newest AMD hardware and integrated LTE connectivity. The EliteBook has the potential to be one of the best business notebooks around - but the Sure View display in our test unit ruined our good impression despite its luminosity.

The HP EliteBook 865 G9 is a premium business laptop and yes, we do like it mostly because it has just a few cons. Let’s start with the pros – this notebook looks great thanks to its metal build and stealthy design so you can use it everywhere – in the office, in your home, during a vacation, and even in the park. Yep, the battery life that can be squeezed out of the small 51.3Wh unit is good enough for working on the go. For users who always want the best possible battery life, a 76Wh unit is available for configuring. As we said, the HP EliteBook 865 G9 doesn’t have a lot of cons, but we can mention the lack of an SD card slot, and the fact that the device has a premium price tag and a lot of the goodies are optional. If you want to use features like a Web camera with a privacy shutter, fingerprint reader, or backlit keyboard, you have to pay an additional amount of money. Still, the HP EliteBook 865 G9 is a good business laptop that boasts a great metal build, a modern design, a comfortable keyboard, and a smooth glass touchpad. In addition, the AMD Zen 3+ CPUs offer a snappy performance and good efficiency and the laptop is comfortable for work because it’s not loud and hot during heavy loads.

The AMD Ryzen 7 CPU and integrated graphics inside the HP EliteBook 865 G9 won't blow you away, but this business laptop delivers solid value for office productivity and occasional content creation work. It's a terrific video conferencing system and, though bulky, offers above-average portability with LTE connectivity and a battery that won't quit. Our only real gripe is its relatively low-resolution IPS screen, which will dismay image or video editors, but isn't a deal breaker for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Here's to hoping HP releases a version with upgraded screen tech before the inevitable G10—a move like that might earn it even higher marks.
