Series:

Not all businessmen require a small, light and mobile notebook/tablet hybrid. Some require a sturdy and tough powerhouse capable of running high-end software smoothly. Despite being made for more demanding users, the EliteBook is by no means heavy. It weighs only 1.33 kg and this is mainly due to the fact that it uses only magnesium instead of metal.

The EliteBook comes with an Intel i5-4200U processor, an integrated HD Graphics 4400 card, 16 GB of RAM and 500 GB hard drive making it suitable for heavier than casual usage. The 12.5 inch LCD screen features a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels, which is very average. Most screens these days have better screen resolution than this.

One of the more attractive features of the EliteBook is its connectivity. Besides basic 802.11 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, the EliteBook also features LTE connectivity, which is a rather interesting function to have for a laptop.

It also comes with 3 USB ports, 1 mini display port, the basic headphones and microphone ports, RJ-45, docking connector and a VGA port. All in all, the HP EliteBook 820 is a pretty average laptop, being pretty good in all sections but not really perfecting any. Although it is rather light, the battery life of the laptop is not as good as it should be, reducing its mobility.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.5":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.

1.26 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
