Across all notebook PCs, the EliteBook 840 is one the fastest selling products currently available for sale according to Amazon sales data.

HP Portable PCs Have Good Reviews

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 type.

Chart Edit

Four SATA Connectors

Most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the EliteBook 840 only have between two and three SATA connectors, however the EliteBook 840 has four SATA connectors.

Chart Edit

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

Most medium processor core laptops that have been around for more than a year have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the EliteBook 840 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The EliteBook 840 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,100 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 840. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of similar spec portable PCs that were released one year ago is 970MHz.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The EliteBook 840 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most notebook PCs of this age and spec. This portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The best memory clock speeds supported by processor of all laptops that were launched around the same time as the EliteBook 840 is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The EliteBook 840 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most medium processor core laptops that were released around the same time as it. Most portable PCs of this type and age 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium amongst all portable PCs of this age and spec.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst comparable types of notebook PC.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including the Elitebook 1040 G2[pl_2951226_price], the Elitebook 1040 G2[pl_2951226_price], or the ProBook 650[pl_2863577_price] all from HP which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this HP portable PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba Tecra Z50[plb_2090365_price] (SSD).

6 Reasons Against

Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At only 1.74 gigabytes, the EliteBook 840 has a very small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a similar spec and age to the EliteBook 840. Medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as the EliteBook 840 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1.7GB and 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 10GB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The EliteBook 840 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the EliteBook 840. The total storage capacity of medium processor core laptops that have been around for a similar time to the EliteBook 840 range from 16GB to 2TB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 256GB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkPad T550[plb_2823866_price], or the HP EliteBook 850[plb_2783808_price].

If this HP laptop total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the EliteBook 820[pl_2862103_price] (500GB), or the EliteBook 840 G2[pl_2903606_price] (500GB) both from HP which is also cheaper.

At only 1.9 gigahertz, the EliteBook 840 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 840.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 1.9GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs currently available including the HP ProBook 440[plb_2790269_price] which has better reviews; or the Lenovo ThinkPad X240[plb_2812690_price] which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Portégé Z30-A[plb_2871919_price] (2GHz), the Lenovo ThinkPad T550[plb_2823866_price] (2.2GHz), or the HP EliteBook 840 G2[plb_2903606_price] (2.2GHz) which is also cheaper.
