HP EliteBook 820 G3 Subnotebook Review


Let down by the display. The third generation of the HP EliteBook 820 is a compact subnotebook with a 12.5-inch screen, which is designed for business environments. Our review configuration, however, is unbalanced, because besides good performance, you...

sturdy chassis with good build quality ; good input devices ; very fast Wi-Fi ; good maintainability ; very good system performance ; 3-years warranty

HP 820 G3
