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 medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it. This HP laptop also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

SSD Storage Medium

The EliteBook 820 has a better storage medium than most notebook PCs of this age and spec. This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years 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.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium amongst all notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the EliteBook 820.

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

We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think because of it's better review score, the HP ProBook 640 (£498.83) is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this HP laptop is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo X230 (SSD), the HP EliteBook 840 (£1,514.30) (SSD), or the DELL Latitude 12 7000 (SSD).

15 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter base frequency of the EliteBook 820 of only 200 megahertz is one of the slowest amongst medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of similar spec portable PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the EliteBook 820 is 370MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 650MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

Chart Edit

Quite Small Screen Size

The average screen size of notebook PCs of this type and age is 15". The EliteBook 820 has a fairly small screen size (only 12.5 inches) compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 820.

We compared all the other 12.5" portable PCs to this notebook PC and we think the HP EliteBook 820 G1 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger screen size then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu LifeBook U554 (£699.99) (13.3" and higher rated); or the HP ProBook 430 (13.3" and cheaper), or the DELL Latitude 13 3440 (£481.90) (13.3" and cheaper).

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The EliteBook 820 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the DELL Latitude E5530 (£406.00), or the Lenovo ThinkPad L540 which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

We compared this portable PC to all the other 256GB total storage capacity portable PCs and we think the Asus BU401LG (£549.99), and the DELL Inspiron 14 7000 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP ProBook 650 (320GB) which is also cheaper.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The EliteBook 820 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1.6 gigahertz) amongst similar spec portable PCs of this age. Notebook PCs of this age and spec have processor clock speeds of between 0.8GHz and 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz.

There are a number of other 1.6GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper notebook PCs such as the DELL Inspiron 15, or the Toshiba Tecra Z40.

Notebook PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the HP Pavilion 17 (1.7GHz and cheaper), or the Asus X555LA (£467.45) (1.7GHz and cheaper).
