HP EliteBook 850 G4 (Core i5, Full HD) Laptop Review


A tradition of poor angles. HP sent out its updated EliteBooks to fight for the affection of business users and the hearts and minds of big business purchasing managers alike. Our extensive review is going to reveal whether they will be won over by the...

high-quality sturdy case ; mostly well-working input devices ; very cool and quiet ; energy efficient and long battery life ; three-year warranty ; decent performance

unacceptable TN panel with PWM-flickering ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; arduous maintenance ; comparatively expensive

Summing up the EliteBook 850 G4 is rather frustrating. While HP does tick all the right boxes with this device, it still manages to disappoint in the end. The case is very well built and sturdy, the input devices are decent (although not perfect),...

HP EliteBook 850 G4 review – HP’s surprisingly expensive business solution


Like in almost every market segment, the high-end business segment is oversaturated with plenty of options to choose from. HP's EliteBook series have always been there and remain as one of th…

Decent build;Thin and light;Excellent input devices;The screen doesn’t use PWM above 100 cd/m2 (30%);Extra long battery life

Pricey;Uses a TN panel instead of at least budget IPS display;Lacks that “premium feel”;The GPU reaches high temperatures and results in overheating during extended workload

Love the Computer


The computer is lightweight, fast and quiet. I love it, but am very disappointed with Windows 10, no photo viewer, has Microsoft ads, needs additional software for standard features in previous versions. The start menu was cluttered with links for...

I bought a $1400 paperweight.


HP sold me me a laptop with no wireless LAN or bluetooth. This is essentially worthless. I can't do anything with it if I can't connect to the Internet. That was a waste of $1400. Furthermore, I contacted HP as soon as I discovered the issue. After...

Defective screen


I could hardly set this laptop up. I had to use Narrator to tell me what button the cursor was over. When I finally got it set up, I realized the screen was defective. The bottom inch or so of the screen acted like it was trying to emulate a second...

Powerful Laptop to get the job done.


This laptop is very fast and powerful. It will do everything you need and more. Highly recommend the docking station. Works like a desktop, with the portability of a laptop. This laptop is also very lightweight and slim.

Computer was difficult


I purchased this laptop for the good power with the i7 , the SSD and the fact it had a sim slot. I could not believe how slow the computer was. I have a old hp with a i5 in it and it blew this one away! maybe I had some sort of manufacturer defect...
