HP EliteBook 820 G1 review

HP EliteBook 820 G1 review


Sturdy, streamlined, secure: HP packs business features into a lighter-weight, 12.6-inch laptop

Haswell ; Sturdy and tested to military specs ; Excellent keyboard ; Double trackpad buttons for flexibility ; Chassis opens easily for servicing

Needs larger battery for 12 hour life ; Smartcard or DisplayPort but not both ; Security options can be annoying ; No touchscreen option ; Lots of options so check the spec you order

It's not the cheapest business-grade notebook but it is good value if you need a sturdy, secure but still somewhat stylish option.

HP Elitebook 820 G1 review


A pintsized 12.5in laptop with more ports than you can shake a stick at.

Portable; Extensive upgradeability; Great input; Reasonable performance; Wealth of connectivity

Poor battery life; Disappointing display

A solid laptop, which delivers solid performance. The upgradeability will help to extend the life of the product, and the only letdown is the battery life.

Nice notebook


Nice lightweight machine. Performs well. A bit pricey

SSD Hard drive only formats out to 165 GB. Specs are deceiving in that regards to boasting a 180 GB SSD capacity

Didn't take much to get everything downloaded and get started

Mouse didn't work properly out of the box. Still doesn't work. Going to have to send in for repair or replacement
