SSD Storage Medium

The EliteBook 850 has a better storage medium than most portable PCs of a comparable age and type to it. This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to it 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 in fact the best storage medium amongst all similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EliteBook 850.

The worst storage medium amongst similar types of portable PC is HDD.

We compared this laptop to all the other laptops that have an SSD storage media and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the T450[pl_2953891_price], and the T550[pl_2954049_price] both from Lenovo or the Toshiba Portégé Z30-A[plb_2871919_price] is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this HP laptop is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Toshiba Tecra Z50[plb_2090365_price] (SSD).

We compared all the other 15.6" portable PCs to this laptop and we think the ThinkPad T540[pl_2472021_price], and the ThinkPad T550[pl_2738522_price] both from Lenovo or the HP EliteBook 850[plb_2783815_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Front Camera

The EliteBook 850 has a front camera. Most of the other similar spec portable PCs that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 850 also have a front camera.

Alternative laptops with a front camera currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper laptops such as the X240[pl_2708337_price], the X240[pl_2984080_price], or the ThinkPad X240[pl_2812690_price] all from Lenovo.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The EliteBook 850 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other laptops of a similar age and spec to the EliteBook 850 which have a full-size keyboard.

It is worth also looking at alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the X240[pl_2984080_price], or the ThinkPad X240[pl_2812690_price] both from Lenovo or the Toshiba Portégé Z30-A[plb_2450897_price] which is also cheaper.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 256GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Toshiba Satellite Z30[plb_2717447_price].

If this portable PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the EliteBook 820[pl_2783813_price] (500GB), or the EliteBook 840[pl_2783814_price] (500GB) both from HP which is also cheaper.
