What Do We like
1080p display quality
This Notebook features a 14-inch display with a 1080p resolution. The IPS, full HD screen, has a high contrast ratio due to which every image and video on this display looks crispy and sharper. The LED on this display is very bright. This will enhance your movie-watching experience hugely.
The laptop features Bang & Olufsen speakers. There are two speakers installed on this laptop, and the clarity and loudness are amazing. Enjoy an immersive audio experience with duo speakers.
The bass is pretty decent. With the pre-installed audio equalizer, you can enhance the sound quality manually from the laptop.
The Notebook weighs around 2.3 kilograms, which is decent to be carried around. It is nor super light nor extra heavy. The perfect weight ratio makes it easier to travel with.
Battery back up
This comes with a 51-watt hours lithium-ion cell battery. This can provide you with up to 10 hours of battery back up on moderate usage while working. Also, it ensures up to 6-7 hours of battery back up for video playback (depending on-screen brightness). This takes around 2 – 2.5 hours to charge properly.
The configuration of this laptop is pretty decent. The Intel Core i7-8550U 1.8GHz 8th generation processor is extremely reliable for a laptop. The 8GB DDR4 ram that is expandable can be used to create a virtual computing environment to work on. It also allows multitasking without lagging or interrupting your current work.
What We Don’t Like
Dedicated graphics memory
This HP EliteBook is a high budget premium laptop that is launched recently. This comes with only integrated graphics at this price range instead of a dedicated graphics card. There should have been a high performing 4GB GDDR5 graphics card on this laptop to increase its performance.
This Notebook comes with Windows 10 Pro installed with lifetime validity. The performance of this laptop is quite up to the mark. Although there is no dedicated graphics card on this device, it still does not fail to perform.
This comes with HP 3 year warranty (physical damage is not covered under warranty). This is an ideal choice for work purposes and is a complete package.
