8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium processor core notebook PCs produced by HP have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all notebook PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.

Intel Core I5 Processor Family

This notebook PC has an Intel Core i5 processor family, which is the most frequently found processor family on similar spec notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the EliteBook 840, the EliteBook 840 has a front camera.

There are a number of alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available which you might want to look at including cheaper portable PCs such as the DELL Inspiron 17 (£723.00), or the Toshiba Tecra Z50.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other laptops with a front camera and we think the HP EliteBook 840 is also worth considering.

Light

At only 1.6 kilograms, the EliteBook 840 is fairly light compared to most of the other notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the EliteBook 840. Medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the EliteBook 840 have weights of between 300g and 3.8kg, and the average weight is 2.2kg.

We compared all the other 1.6kg heavy portable PCs to this laptop and we think the EliteBook 840, and the EliteBook 740 (£684.02) both from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would consider a laptop with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 840 G1 (1.6kg).

802.11n WiFi Standard

This notebook PC has an 802.11a|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

The EliteBook 840 is a four USB 3.0 port portable PC. Most of the other notebook PCs of this age and type have between one and four USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Operating System Architecture

This portable PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is the most frequently found operating system architecture on portable PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot

This laptop has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot on medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The HP EliteBook 840 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years which have a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Inspiron 17 (£723.00), the Latitude 14 5000, or the Latitude 14 5000 all from DELL which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on notebook PCs of this spec and age. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

There are a number of alternative portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might also want to look at including the DELL Inspiron 17R (£569.00), the HP ProBook 450, or the Fujitsu LifeBook E754 (£651.20) which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this laptop is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 820 (£599.99) (SSD and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 1.7 gigahertz, the EliteBook 840 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the EliteBook 840. The slowest processor clock speed of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the EliteBook 840 is 0.8GHz and the fastest is 3.1GHz.

We compared this laptop to all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed portable PCs and we think cheaper laptops such as the Fujitsu LifeBook U554 (£645.33) is also worth considering.

Notebook PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo ThinkPad T440 (1.9GHz and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Internal Memory

At only 4 gigabytes, the HP EliteBook 840 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other laptops that were launched more than two years ago. The average internal memory of portable PCs that have been around for a similar time to the EliteBook 840 is 5.3GB, and the internal memory range from 1GB to 16GB.

Alternative 4GB internal memory laptops currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper laptops such as the Acer Aspire V5-132 (£587.00).

If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the T440p (8GB), or the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (8GB) both from Lenovo or the DELL Inspiron 15 (£846.00) (6GB).

Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate

This laptop Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many laptops of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Only Three Battery Cells

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

Like most of the other laptops of a similar age and spec to the EliteBook 840, the EliteBook 840 does not have a touch sensitive screen.

Other portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen that you might also want to look at include the Latitude 14 5000, or the Latitude 12 7000 both from DELL which is also cheaper.

Only Windows 8 Recovery Operating System

This notebook PC has a Windows 8.1 Pro recovery operating system, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Only 4 Bluetooth Version

This laptop supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years.

3 Other reasons to consider the HP EliteBook 840

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when HP released the EliteBook 840.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP EliteBook 840 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared this laptop to all the other 500GB total storage capacity laptops and we think the ThinkPad T440, and the T440p both from Lenovo or the DELL Latitude 14 5000 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this notebook PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the DELL Inspiron 15 7537 (£629.00) (1TB and cheaper); or the Lenovo Z51 (£909.00) (1TB and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 14 inches, the HP EliteBook 840 has a pretty average screen size compared to most of the other portable PCs that came out more than two years ago.

There are a number of other 14" notebook PCs currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkPad T440, or the HP ProBook 645 G1 (£609.64).

If you would prefer a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the Lenovo L540 (£668.30) (15.6" and cheaper), or the Toshiba Satellite C55-B (15.6" and cheaper).
