Amazon Best Selling HP Elitebook 840 G5 Laptop Intel Core i7
HP EliteBook 840 G5 series top-of-the-line model features a privacy screen at the touch of a button. HP appears to have set its sights slightly lower in terms of battery life—some competition offers greater battery life. There are 32 GB of RAM, an LTE modem, and a NVMe SSD on board. This notebook features an IPS display with a privacy screen, an LTE modem, and a 32 GB RAM.
A 14-inch business laptop like the EliteBook 840 G5 belongs to the luxury class. We have already reviewed an EliteBook 840 G5 3JX66EA model. Now let’s look at HP’s current top model. There are no compromises with HP’s configuration: A Core i7 processor, 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB NVMe SSD make the cut.

Display – A very bright display is on board
There is a native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels on the matte 14-inch screen. HP Sure View technology shields the display content from people peering from side angles. Its contrast ratio (1170:1) and brightness (629.8 cd/m2) are both good and very good. The privacy screen can be turned on and off by a function key.
Even sensitive users should not suffer from eye problems or headaches when the display is set to 90% brightness and below. A frequency of 3125 Hz should spare them from headaches and eye problems.
Display Response Times
Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to monitor response times, which are measured by how fast the screen changes between colors. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and cause moving objects to appear blurry.
Performance – Thanks to the Core i7, nothing is lacking
Among the luxury 14-inch laptops in the EliteBook 840 G5, the system provides enough processing power to handle all of the usual application scenarios. There are also different versions of the computer with different hardware components, including a docking port and a TPM. The laptop comes with features typical of business devices, such as a docking port and a TPM.
With the Intel Core i7-8550U quad-core processor, the EliteBook should be able to cater to the needs of most users. It comes with a base clock speed of 1.8GHz with turbo speeds of up to 4GHz.
In Cinebench, multi-thread tests were run at 3.4 to 3.6 GHz for a few seconds, then 2.4 to 2.5 GHz. In the single-thread tests, the processor performed at 3.4 to 4 GHz, however only when it was powered by AC power. In battery mode, the CPU ran at 1.6 to 1.8 GHz (multi-thread) and 1.6 to 2.2 GHz (single-thread).
The reason is that the option “Enable Turbo Boost on DC” is not activated in the BIOS. In battery mode, the turbo kicks in if the user turns it on.
No problems were encountered with the system. The EliteBook provided more than enough performance power for office and internet-related applications. The laptop scored extremely high in PC Mark benchmarks, confirming our subjective impression. HP has already optimized its computational power, so it is not possible to improve its overall performance.
