9 Reasons For
HP Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops
We calculated the average reviews for all HP notebook PCs and also specifically for HP medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases HP had good reviews.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This notebook PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on laptops of a comparable spec and age to it.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The EliteBook 820 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most laptops of a similar type and age to it. Most notebook PCs of this type and age support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This HP laptop also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The best memory clock speeds supported by processor of all laptops of a comparable spec and age to the EliteBook 820 is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The EliteBook 820 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. 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 across all notebook PCs of this spec and age.
Across similar types of portable PC the worst storage medium is HDD.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL Latitude 13 3340[plb_2751294_price].
If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Satellite Z30[plb_2717447_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo ThinkPad X250[plb_2743534_price] (SSD).
Has a Front Camera
The HP EliteBook 820 has a front camera, as do most of the other portable PCs that were released around the same time as the EliteBook 820.
There are a number of other laptops which also have a front camera that you might also want to look at including the X1 Carbon[pl_2911178_price], or the Z510[pl_2979742_price] both from Lenovo or the HP EliteBook 840 G2[plb_2980549_price].
802.11n WiFi Standard
This notebook PC has an 802.11a|802.11ac|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar spec and age to it.
+4 More reasons for
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
This laptop has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot on similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
Across all the comparable spec portable PCs that came out around the same time as the EliteBook 820 the weights range from 940g to 3.8kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the EliteBook 820 is quite light compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the EliteBook 820.
Other laptops with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Satellite C50-B[pl_2319230_price] (2.2kg), the Satellite C50-B[pl_2256586_price] (2.2kg), or the Satellite Z30[pl_2717447_price] (1.2kg) all from Toshiba.
At only 310 millimeters, the HP EliteBook 820 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to the EliteBook 820. The average width of notebook PCs that were released one year ago is 360mm, and the widths range from 28mm to 430mm.
8 Reasons Against
Only Not Supported HD Type
The HD type of this notebook PC is Not supported, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar age and type to it.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
Most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 820 have a full-size keyboard, however the HP EliteBook 820 does not have a full-size keyboard.
We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this portable PC and we think the ThinkPad X1 Carbon[pl_2802546_price], or the X1 Carbon[pl_2911178_price] both from Lenovo or the HP EliteBook 840 G2[plb_2941676_price] is also worth considering.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of laptops of this age and type is 16GB and the biggest is 2TB. At only 128 gigabytes, the EliteBook 820 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the EliteBook 820.
If this notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the EliteBook 840 G2[pl_2941676_price] (256GB), or the EliteBook 840 G2[pl_2980549_price] (256GB) both from HP or the Lenovo T450[plb_2899072_price] (256GB).
Quite Small Screen Size
The screen sizes of portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the EliteBook 820 range from 11" to 18". With a screen size of only 12.5 inches, the EliteBook 820 has a quite small screen size compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 820.
If this medium processor core notebook PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Latitude 13 3340[plb_2751294_price] (13.3") which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The HP EliteBook 820 does not have a touch sensitive screen, although this is within the context that most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
We think you might also be interested in alternative notebook PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen including the DELL Inspiron 15 5558[plb_3008314_price] which is also cheaper.
Only Three Battery Cells
The EliteBook 820 is a three battery cell count notebook PC.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This laptop supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is the most frequently supported Bluetooth version on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year.
