HP EliteBook 840 G5 Design
The design is quite neat and simple. As the laptop opens, you can see a classy, backlit, island-style keyboard with a pointing stick. In the top left corner there’s a sleek power button, and above that is an elegant, triangle-pattern lid for the Bang & Olufsen speakers. The display’s chin is a little thick, but it’s proportioned well with the slim bezels to make it look seductive.
At 3.4 pounds and 12.8 x 9.2 x 0.7 inches, the EliteBook 840 is slightly bigger than most of its competition. It matches the Dell Latitude 7490’s 0.7-inch thickness but just beats that machine’s weight of 3.5 pounds.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Battery
Get longer battery life with a new HP EliteBook 840 G5 battery. This battery replaces the original battery for the HP EliteBook 840 G5 as well as the Elitebook 735 745 G5 (5th Generation) 830 840 846 G5 and Zbook 14gu G5 models.
In this the highest quality lithium-ion battery cell technology in the batteries. The superior Samsung mobiles and Texas Instruments components last longer, charge faster and weigh less than cheaper, lower-quality batteries.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Battery life
The EliteBook 840 will last an average workday. While web surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the laptop lasted for 8 hours and 31 minutes. It narrowly beat the 8:20 average but fell behind the Latitude 7490 (8:55) and MateBook X (9:55), and it didn’t come close to the ThinkPad X1 (11:01). It’s important to note that the EliteBook 840 lasted only 6:17 while Sure View was turned on.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Ports
The EliteBook 840 features several ports for business use. The left side features a secure lock slot, one USB 3.0 with always-on charging, and a Smart Card Reader.
On the right, you’ll find one USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt, an HP UltraSlim dock connector, an RJ45 port, an HDMI port, one USB 3.0 port, a combo headphone/microphone jack, and a WWAN SIM card reader.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Display
The 14-inch, 1920 x 1080 IPS LED display on the EliteBook 840 base model was lackluster and too dim to enjoy. The base display produced a dim 217 nits of brightness, crashing below the 305-nit category average.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Audio
The balance of bass and treble allows each instrument to shine, creating a surprisingly intense experience. Bang & Olufsen provides its equalizer app, so you can customize the sound to your specific needs. Options are tailored for voice, movies, or music, but if that doesn’t satisfy, you can perform a full manual equalizer setup.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Performance
The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620 (upgradable to AMD Radeon RX 540 2GB) maintained a solid 55 frames per second while running Dirt 3. While that is well above a playable 30 fps, the EliteBook’s competitors ran the game at higher frame rates.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Webcam and Mic
While the Privacy Camera feature is neat, malicious hackers wouldn’t be able to make out much anyway. As I pulled my face toward the webcam, it could barely capture any details, whether it be the hairs on my head or the freckles on my face. This camera does handle contrast rather well, as the light from the office windows didn’t overwhelm the photo, but the colors were dull.
HP’s noise-canceling, world-facing microphone can filter background noise decently but voices not so much. I placed the back of the laptop toward my editor, who sits two chairs away from me, and the microphone could pick up her voice clearly as she spoke on the phone. Even though the microphone couldn’t remove background voices, the quality itself was relatively clear.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Keyboard, Touchpad, and Pointing Stick
The EliteBook 840’s backlit keyboard is tight; it sharply sinks into the chassis, and the keys feel substantial and clicky while you’re typing. For business users, however, HP included three useful keys to present, answer and hang up calls via Skype.
For pointing stick users, the nub has plenty of room to work with, cutting a decent chunk off the G, H, and B keys. There are two discrete mouse buttons for it at the top of the touchpad, but unlike the Latitude 7490 and ThinkPad X1, this HP doesn’t have a scroll button.
HP EliteBook 840 G5 Heat
The EliteBook 840 can run a little warm, but nothing too extreme. After I ran an HD video for 15 minutes, the HP’s undercarriage measured 99 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s slightly above our 95-degree comfort threshold. Meanwhile, the touchpad and center of the keyboard hit a cooler 87 and 98 degrees, respectively. The hottest temp was 101 degrees, which came from the lower left side of the undercarriage.
