HP EliteBook 745 G5 (Ryzen 7 2700U) Laptop Review


Very good disappointment. AMD Ryzen, mostly known for offering CPUs for consumer products, now want to compete with Intel in the business market. The EliteBook 745 G5, based on the very good EliteBook 840 G5, seems to fit the bill - at least on paper....

AMD CPU delivers a better boost performance ; Higher GPU performance than Intel-iGPUs ; Sturdy metal case ; Comfortable input devices ; Solid ports including a docking port ; Plenty of security features ; Stays always cool and usually silent ; 3 years...

CPU & GPU are throttled a lot in some cases ; Poor battery life compared to competitors ; No Thunderbolt 3 ; No high resolution display option ; SSD slow for a PCIe-NVMe-SSD ; No SD card reader ; Doesn't reach 100% sRGB

At the time of writing the verdict, the HP EliteBook 840 G5 was the best device in our rankings. Built on this very good foundation, an EliteBook 745 G5 with AMD CPUs sounds quite promising! Sometimes very good is not enough: The Intel laptop EliteBook...

HP EliteBook 745 G3 (FHD) Notebook Review


Right down to business. Just last week, we evaluated HP's new 745 G3 update with WQHD IPS screen and Windows 7 preinstalled. Today's configuration features a lower-end 1080p panel, but it's also correspondingly more affordable. How does it hold up...

relatively sturdy, metal case, excellent keyboard, comfortable and precise touchpad, fast SSD, very good general system performance, bright, matte 1080p screen, competitively priced, comfortable case temperatures, clear, loud speakers, empty 2.5-inch...

inconvenient maintenance, poor color reproduction and middling contrast, PWM at all but the highest brightness, CPU/GPU performance is heavily constrained by TDP, distracting CPU whine, below-average battery life for its class

Last week’s review of the HP EliteBook 745 G3 opened the conversation regarding a lower-cost alternative to the typical high-priced business notebooks. Since it retains much of the EliteBook 800 series design highlights, the 745 G3 reaps many of the...

HP EliteBook 745 G3 Review and Ratings


HP's AMD-powered slimline won't make Intel engineers lie awake nights, but it's a good value for IT managers and business employees. Its generic, non-IPS display is a major letdown, however.

Affordable price ; First-class keyboard ; A desktop's worth of ports

Lackluster screen ; Tepid performance

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

HP EliteBook 745 G5 review: A feast for the hands, not for the eyes


This security-laden laptop trips over some quality issues, even when it excels elsewhere

Sturdy design; Great keyboard and trackpad; Comprehensive security tools

Poor display; Short battery life; Performance seems lower than it should be

The EliteBook 745 G5 is a tale of two laptops: one, a beautifully-made professional notebook with lots of tools for keeping your data safe, the other a disappointing misstep with a budget-tier screen. The strengths just about outweigh the weaknesses...
