15 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Portable PCs

We checked 3,456 expert and user reviews for HP laptops and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core notebook PCs range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many portable PCs of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Four SATA III Connectors

The EliteBook 820 is a four SATA III connector portable PC. Most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 820 only have between two and three SATA III connectors.

Chart Edit

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

Most notebook PCs of a similar age and type to the EliteBook 820 have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the EliteBook 820 which has three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to the EliteBook 820 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,300MHz. At 1,100 megahertz, the HP EliteBook 820 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that were released around the same time as the EliteBook 820.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The EliteBook 820 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most laptops that are a comparable age to it. Most portable PCs of this spec and age support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this laptop supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The best memory clock speeds supported by processor of all similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EliteBook 820 is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP EliteBook 820 has a better storage medium than most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This HP portable PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as 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 actually the best storage medium amongst all notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the EliteBook 820.

The worst storage medium across comparable types of notebook PC is HDD.

We compared all the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media to this laptop and we think the Toshiba Tecra Z40 which is cheaper; or the Lifebook U745 (£1,070.40), and the Lifebook U745 (£1,070.40) both from Fujitsu which has better reviews are also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,449.58) (SSD).

Intel Core I5 Processor Family

The EliteBook 820 has an Intel Core i5 processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most laptops of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the EliteBook 820, the EliteBook 820 has a front camera.

There are a number of alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available that you might want to consider including a cheaper notebook PC such as the Samsung ATIV Book 9 or you might consider a higher scoring notebook PC such as the Toshiba Z30 (£1,549.99).

We compared all the other notebook PCs which also have a front camera to this portable PC and we think the Lenovo X1 Carbon (£1,344.00) is also worth considering.
