HP Elitebook Revolve 810 review – if there’s one thing HP does right, it’s swivel hinge convertibles
30 August 2013
Conclusion: The Elitebook Revolve 810 is a very solid machine for those who aren’t really sold on the whole tablet fad and prefer the old ways while still being able to test new waters, but for the price you could find better options. The base Revolve 810 model is $1449, with the top configuration going for a whopping $1799 – that’s the price of a good MacBook Air, Asus Ultrabook or even a 14 inch Elitebook workstation – but if you need portability and a touch screen, the Revolve...
Conclusion: The HP EliteBook is still certainly capable of performing those functions, but there are better options available to consumers. Users that are looking for productivity and want a device that will get the job done, plain and simple, will be well severed by the HP EliteBook Revolve 810.
Pros: Durable simplistic design, High quality touchpad, SSD
Conclusion: As for the EliteBook Revolve, at first glance its $1,449 price looks steep, particularly with Lenovo offering a ThinkPad Twist for $1,079 with a comparable Core i5 and 128GB SSD. But when you begin to add up the 810's charms—sleek but rugged chassis, simple yet versatile design, comfortable keyboard, strong application performance, long battery life, enterprise security features—it begins to look more reasonable.
Pros: Sleek yet rugged chassis, Comfortable keyboard, Strong application performance, Long battery life
Cons: Expensive, No VGA or HDMI, Third- instead of fourth-generation Core i5 CPU
Summary: With a durable, attractive 3-pound chassis, fast SSD, and an excellent backlit keyboard, the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 has all the amenities a road warrior could want. For $1,449, though, we'd prefer longer battery life. If you're not sold on the tablet-only paradigm just yet, the Revolve 810 lets you dip your toes into a touch-centric future, while still retaining all the best features of the current generation of ultraportable business notebooks.
Pros: Attractive durable design, Comfortable finish, Excellent keyboard, Fast SSD, Premium support line

Summary: HP's EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 Tablet represents a good combination of both form and function. It can be used relatively comfortably as either a laptop or tablet, and the good thing is it's as powerful as a standard Ultrabook computer. Well worth checking out if you want a dual-purpose device for your business.
Pros: Solid design and easy to convert, Soft and quiet keyboard, Built-in Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi
Cons: Can feel a little cramped, Could be too heavy and thick for prolonged use as a tablet, Could benefit from a fingerprint reader
