Summary: The golden mean? The HP EliteBook 840 G1 wants to beat the business rivals from Lenovo and Dell. Thanks to an extensive diet, the 14-inch device is thinner than ever, but you do not have to waive a fast Core i7 processor, sufficient memory and comprehensive features.
Pros: Sturdy chassis, Good build quality, Excellent input devices, Bright display, High application performance, Easy maintenance, Integrated UMTS/HSPA+ module, The bulky EliteBooks of the past are gone – the very mobile 840 G1 fits perfectly into this modern Ultrabook era.
Cons: TN panel with limited viewing angles, Mediocre 0.9 MP webcam, Card reader hard to reach, High price, Especially small details should be improved by the manufacturer: A better webcam and a Thunderbolt port would be nice for the successor. A high-quality IPS display is already available, although only for an additional charge.
Conclusion: Nevertheless, the 840 fills an important niche: a premium business laptop that ditches the premium price tag. If you're looking for a solid notebook for your office that won't cost you an arm and a leg, the EliteBook 840 G1 is a good choice.
Pros: Affordable, Attractive design, Excellent keyboard and touch pad, VGA port included, Long battery life
Cons: 1,366x768 non-touch screen, Tinny audio, No audio control software, Poor Webcam quality
Summary: It's a shame that the EliteBook doesn't include a solid-state drive that can really make the most of its powerful processor and GPU, but this is still a well-designed and versatile laptop that will appeal to many business users. The high-quality display is particularly suitable for presentations, while its sturdy design, security features and battery life will appeal to anyone that spends a lot of time out on the road.
HP EliteBook 840G1: Sometimes it's an Ultrabook, sometimes it's not
17 January 2014
Excerpt: Review At a recent event when HP was handing out Elitebooks and other gadgetry to the great and the good of the UK’s tech press, a thought crossed my mind as the options presented themselves. Shall I go for the eminently portable Elitebook 820 G1 12.5in model or the somewhat chunkier 14in 840 G1? With you, dear reader, in mind, I had a good long ponder on this.
Excerpt: It's hardly surprising that most Ultrabooks tend to have 12-inch or 13-inch screens since, of course, that helps to keep their size and weight as low as possible. For some reason, though, HP seems to have a fondness for larger Ultrabook designs with 14-inch screens, such as its new EliteBook 840 G1. (See also: Group test: what's the best high-end laptop?
Conclusion: Összefoglalva tehát nekünk kifejezetten tetszett a HP EliteBoook 840, mert egy nagyon jó vállalati notebook, de hiányoljuk belőle a karakterességet, amit például elődje birtokolt. Aztán lehet, a HP szándékosan nem tette ezt bele, hogy ne legyen túl erős konkurense a ZBook 14 munkagépnek vagy a karcsú EliteBook Folio 1040-nek.
