Across all the medium processor core laptops that were released one year ago the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL Latitude 12 7000 (2.6GHz), or the MSI CX61 2QF (2.6GHz) which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The EliteBook 840 has a better storage medium than most medium processor core laptops that have been around for around the same time as it. This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core laptops 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 actually the best storage medium amongst all similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the EliteBook 840.

The worst storage medium across similar types of laptop is HDD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available including the 13Z940, or the 13Z940 both from LG or the DELL Latitude 12 E7250 which has better reviews.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the DELL Latitude 14 E7450 (SSD).

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other laptops of a comparable age and type to the EliteBook 840, the EliteBook 840 has a front camera.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available including the DELL Latitude 14 E5450 ($400.00), or the HP ProBook 450 ($696.36) which is cheaper.

It is worth also looking at other portable PCs which also have a front camera including the HP EliteBook 840.

Chart Edit

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

The EliteBook 840 has a touch sensitive screen, which is unusual. Most of the other notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year do not have a touch sensitive screen.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other laptops with a touch sensitive screen and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Latitude 12 7000, the Latitude 12 E7250, and the Inspiron 15 ($649.00) all from DELL is also worth considering.

The weights of medium processor core laptops that were released one year ago range from 940g to 3.8kg, and the average weight is 2kg.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might also want to consider the Vostro 14 5000 ($749.00) (1.5kg), or the Latitude 12 5000 ($1,288.00) (1.6kg) both from DELL which is also cheaper.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most of the other laptops of this spec and age have a full-size keyboard, however the EliteBook 840 does not have a full-size keyboard.

We compared all the other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard to this notebook PC and we think the DELL Latitude 14 E5450 ($400.00), or the HP ProBook 450 ($696.36) is also worth considering.

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

At only 256 gigabytes, the HP EliteBook 840 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs of this spec and age. Medium processor core laptops that have been around for around the same time as the EliteBook 840 have total storage capacity of between 16GB and 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 530GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 256GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including a cheaper notebook PC such as the DELL Latitude 12 5000 ($1,288.00) or you might consider a higher rated notebook PC such as the Asus UX303LA.

If you would prefer a portable PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the ProBook 430 ($642.03) (500GB and cheaper), or the ProBook 650 (500GB and cheaper) both from HP or the DELL Latitude 14 E5450 ($425.00) (500GB and cheaper).

Average Internal Memory

The EliteBook 840 has a fairly standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other laptops of this spec and age.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Screen Size

The HP EliteBook 840 has a relatively typical screen size (14 inches) compared to most of the other portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the EliteBook 840.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 14" portable PCs currently available including the Lenovo L450, or the HP EliteBook 840 which is cheaper.

If this HP notebook PC screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP ProBook 450 (15.6" and cheaper), or the Lenovo L540 (15.6" and cheaper).
