Review HP Elitebook 820 G1

16 Reasons For

HP Has Good Portable PC Reviews

HP has good average ratings for its medium processor core notebook PCs as well as across its entire notebook PC range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Intel Core I7 Processor Family

The EliteBook 820 G1 has a better processor family than most portable PCs of a comparable type and age to it. This notebook PC has an Intel Core i7 processor family, whereas most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to it have an Intel Core i5 processor family. Across all laptops of this spec and age the worst processor family is AMD C and the best is Intel Core i7-3xxx.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The EliteBook 820 G1 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 have been on the market for around the same time as it. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This notebook PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the EliteBook 820 G1.

A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst comparable types of notebook PC.

Quite Big Internal Memory

The EliteBook 820 G1 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst similar spec notebook PCs of this age. The average internal memory of comparable spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the EliteBook 820 G1 is 5.3GB.

Alternative 8GB internal memory laptops currently available which you might also want to look at include cheaper laptops such as the Lenovo X1 Carbon (£1,167.59).

SSD Storage Medium

The EliteBook 820 G1 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most laptops of a comparable age and type to 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.

This notebook PC's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium amongst all medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the EliteBook 820 G1.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst similar types of notebook PC.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Toshiba Portégé Z30-A is also worth considering.

Portable PCs with a better storage medium that might be worth looking at include the Lenovo T420s (£972.00) (SSD), or the HP EliteBook 820 (SSD).

Has a Front Camera

The HP EliteBook 820 G1 has a front camera, as do most of the other notebook PCs of this age and spec.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the EliteBook 820 G1 (£1,199.99), or the EliteBook 850 (£1,198.78) both from HP or the DELL XPS 13 (£1,187.99) is also worth considering.

The EliteBook 820 G1 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that are a similar age to the EliteBook 820 G1.
