HP EliteBook 820 Review

15 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

Based on 4,416 user and expert reviews, HP has good reviews for its portable PCs. HP also has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core laptops range compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on laptops of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Four SATA III Connectors

Most of the other medium processor core laptops that were launched around the same time as the EliteBook 820 only have between two and three SATA III connectors, however the EliteBook 820 has four SATA III connectors.

Chart Edit

Four SATA Connectors

The HP EliteBook 820 has more SATA connectors than most of the portable PCs of this age and spec. This notebook PC is a four SATA connector notebook PC compared to most of the medium processor core laptops that were released one year ago which only have between two and three SATA connectors.

Chart Edit

Three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most notebook PCs of this spec and age have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the EliteBook 820 which has three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Battery Life

The HP EliteBook 820 has one of the longer battery lifes (13.25 hours) amongst medium processor core laptops of this age. The shortest battery life of comparable spec laptops that have been available for a similar time to the EliteBook 820 is 2.5h, the longest is 33h, and the average battery life is 8.7h.

If this laptop battery life is not long enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Latitude 12 5000 ($1,295.00) (13.5h).

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The HP EliteBook 820 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most laptops that have been available for more than a year. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all portable PCs of this age and spec the memory clock speeds supported by processor ranges from 133MHz (worst) to 1,866MHz (best).

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP EliteBook 820 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most comparable spec notebook PCs that came out more than a year ago. Most portable PCs that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This laptop's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs of this spec and age.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium across similar types of laptop.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think the LifeBook A544, and the LifeBook A544 both from Fujitsu which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might also want to consider the DELL Latitude 13 3340 (SSD), or the HP EliteBook 820 (SSD).

Intel Core I5 Processor Family

The HP EliteBook 820 has an Intel Core i5 processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most laptops of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The EliteBook 820 has a front camera, as do most of the other laptops of this type and age.
