HP EliteBook 840 G5 review: A reliable business laptop with some style (video)

Business laptops don't have to be boring.

Business laptops are often a little more boring than their consumer counterparts. But in recent years, manufacturers have been taking a turn towards a more premium design for their business lineups. That's especially true for HP's new 14-inch EliteBook 840 G5, which sits right in the middle of the EliteBook lineup with a stylish design without compromising on reliability or features.

  • We've been using the Elitebook 840 series for some time and the G5 is a huge leap forward from the G3/G4. The 8 screws to open the bottom is so much better than the 15+ from the G3 and G4, though not as convenient as the user removable panel from the G1/G2. The G5 looks so much more sleek than the previous models. We only got our first batch of these so we'll see how well they stand up to the day to day work, but I have high hopes.
