Our Specialist view of the HP EliteBook 850 G2 Touchscreen laptop

The Spec:

The bigger brother to the EliteBook 840 G1, the 850 G2 is spec’d as follows: A dual core 5th gen Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB RAM and a 256GB solid state drive. A 15.6” Full HD Touchscreen display provides crystal clear viewing with an integrated webcam for those Skype, Zoom or Microsoft Teams meetings. The laptop also has VGA and DisplayPort video connections for external displays and USB 3.0 for peripherals. Windows 10 Pro 64Bit is also preinstalled to get you going straight away.

The Good Bits:

Frankly the 850 G2 is a considerable upgraded on the EliteBook 840 G1. It offers faster performance and the same reliability. It still remains just as portable as the smaller 840 G1 because the chassis is thin and weighs less than 1.9 kilos. The keyboard doesn’t have a separate number pad despite having a larger screen but it still feels great to use. The touchpad is smooth and also has 2 sets of left and right mouse buttons. Personally we love the touchscreen feature, mainly because it’s not essential to the laptop so it can be used as and when required.

The Not So Good Bits:

We couldn’t pick too many holes in the 850 G2, much like the 840 G1. Tt’s well built and a great spec but it does lack in 1 or 2 areas. A HDMI port instead of DisplayPort would have been handy. The VGA port offers connectivity for legacy hardware, and while the DisplayPort a lot, more and equipment has HDMI as standard so an adapter would be needed. The mouse pointer in the middle of the keyboard can be knocked off with a very small amount of effort. Click here if you want to add a keyboard and mouse.

The Design:

The combination of materials used for its construction give the 850 G2 a premium feel without adding loads of weight. Not only does it look great, the aluminium chassis is also tough and has been put through MIL-STD 810G testing so you know you are using a laptop that will withstand a few bumps and scrapes. We still wouldn’t recommend dropping it from any height or taking it for a bath.

Suitability:

In our opinion the 850 G2 will fit almost seamlessly in most environments but is probably best served helping a student type up that bit of course work or essay or helping a teach lesson plan.
