HP EliteBook 840 G5

 

The midrange EliteBook 840 G5 is a first-class 14-inch business laptop that challenges its up-the-stack HP kin, though you'll want to upgrade from the dim default screen.

Sleek design. Good battery life. Available 4K and privacy-screen display options, as well as discrete graphics. Comfortable backlit keyboard.

Expensive with options. Base screen is dreary.

Bottom Line: The midrange EliteBook 840 G5 is a first-class 14-inch business laptop that challenges its up-the-stack HP kin, though you'll want to upgrade from the dim default screen.

HP EliteBook 840 G5 (i7-8550U, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Privacy screen at the touch of a button. When it comes to Hewlett Packard's top-of-the-line model from their EliteBook 840 G5 series, the manufacturer is not fiddling about. On board you will find a very bright IPS display with a privacy screen, an LTE...

very bright, high-contrast IPS display ; Full HD resolution ; attractive and stable case ; many security features ; NVMe SSD ; good system performance ; comfy input devices ; Thunderbolt 3 ; docking port

mediocre battery life ; no memory card reader ; occasional electronic crackle ; PWM

The EliteBook 840 G5 belongs to the luxury class of business laptops. Our test device is the top-of-the-line model. In terms of the laptop's configuration, HP makes no compromises. The Core i7 processor provides enough processing power for all the...

HP EliteBook 840 G5 (i5-8250U, SSD, Full HD) Laptop Review

 

A lot of changes! After HP only gave its business notebook a quick brush-up last year, a lot of changes have been made to the new EliteBook 840. There is the Kaby Lake Refresh processor and a new case redesign. This does not necessarily mean that new...

good looking, stable case ; bright, matte IPS ; no PWM ; many security features ; good system performance ; comfortable input devices ; USB Type-C with Thunderbolt ; case temperatures remain low ; docking port

display has a strong blue cast ex-works ; SSD not as good as we expected ; average battery runtimes ; no card reader ; processor cannot reach its full potential

The HP EliteBook 840 G5 is a high-quality business device, now in its fifth generation. The successor of the HP EliteBook 840 G4 has been given a new design and an up-to-date Kaby Lake Refresh processor, although this cannot reach its full potential....

HP EliteBook 840 G5 review: An excellent option for security-sensitive businesses

 

A great choice for security-conscious companies, with a great screen privacy mode

Fantastic security features ; Feels sturdy ; Great screen

Strange trackpoint position ; Not the best battery life

While I wouldn’t rush out to buy the EliteBook 840 G5, there’s much to like here: the conferencing features; the extra levels of privacy; the convenience of built-in Ethernet and HDMI ports to accompany Thunderbolt 3. This versatility, and prices...

HP EliteBook 840 G5 review

 

An excellent choice for security-conscious companies, with the best feature being a privacy mode so people can't view your screen

Excellent port selection; Great business features; Keen price

Chunky, unprepossessing design; Performance can't match the Dell XPS 13

While we wouldn’t rush out to buy the EliteBook 840 G5, there’s much to like here. This level of versatility, and prices starting at £1,099 inc VAT on HP’s website, make the EliteBook an attractive option for security-sensitive businesses.

HP EliteBook 840 G5: Business-Notebook mit ganz viel Dampf im Test

 

Leicht, schnell, scharf? HP bringt sein sündhaft teures EliteBook 840 G5 in den Handel. Ist der hohe Preis gerechtfertigt? COMPUTER BILD hatte das Business-Notebook im Test.

Hohes Arbeitstempo ; Zuschaltbarer Sichtschutz fürs Display ; Geringes Gewicht ; Gute Tastatur, genaues Touchpad ; Mobiles Internet per LTE möglich ; Viele Anschlüsse

Display mit etwas geringer Farbtreue ; Hoher Preis
