HP EliteBook 840 Aero G8 review

Two-minute review

Though slightly missing the mark on the battery life segment, the EliteBook 840 Aero G8 Notebook checks off all the right marks for a fine productivity-focused laptop. Some impressive specs are housed inside the ultra-light 2.54 lb chassis, including an 11th-gen Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. 

The 14-inch laptop also offers optional features like 5G LTE Wireless,  fingerprint reader, privacy protection screen, smart card reader and an IR webcam with a camera privacy shutter. But even if you don’t kit it out with all these fancy features, you’ll still get awesome-sounding Bang & Olufsen speakers and a comfortable dual point backlit spill-resistant premium keyboard.
