The EliteBook 850 G8 is the latest business laptop from HP. It features a 1000-nit screen, 5G modem, smart card reader and an NFC chip. The HP laptop looks and feels very premium.

The HP EliteBook 850 G8 is a high-end business laptop which comes with a 1000-nit screen and a lot of other features. The relatively slim 15-inch notebook is very well-built. The housing of the EliteBook 850 G8 is made of high-quality aluminium, which is why the chassis and the display lid are very stiff. However, the keyboard deck exhibits some flex.

Our review model of the EliteBook 850 G8 features the Intel Core i7-1165G7 with an integrated Iris graphics chip. All in all, the Intel CPU fails to reach its full potential in the HP notebook. The same processor manages to achieve a higher level of performance in other laptops. Howbeit, the GPU offers a very high level of performance.

As a business notebook, the EliteBook 850 G8 has more to offer than just middling results in the benchmarks: Our review unit comes with a brand-new 5G modem, an NFC chip, a fingerprint scanner, a smart card reader and an IR camera. The HP laptop offers three different ways to authenticate the user. Moreover, the notebook has two Thunderbolt 4 ports, which allow users to connect docking stations and very fast external drives to the laptop.

One of the most remarkable features of the EliteBook 850 G8 is the SureView screen, which allows users to severely restrict viewing angles to protect their privacy. What is more, the screen brightness can get up to 1000 cd/m². This is why the HP notebook is usable outside even on sunny days. Those who travel a lot should like this display.

The EliteBook 850 G8 offers a lot of features which should be of particular interest to business users. In fact, there are no alternatives to some of these features. To learn more about the EliteBook 850 G8, check out our comprehensive review.
