The HP EliteBooks are really well-thought-out machines, which feature new hardware and good designs. At the end of the day, what more do you need. Hp has also simplified the spec sheets, offering identical hardware between the different laptops, so the only thing you need to worry about is the laptop size.
The simplicity is what makes these laptops great. They offer simple, yet good-looking designs, and don’t suffocate you with an abundance of hardware options. Today we have the eighth generation of the 800-series EliteBooks and we will compare them to their predecessors, to see what has remained and what is different.

The laptops look nearly identical from the outside. They all have premium aluminum unibodies that are well built and give you a sensation of expansiveness. There is a slight difference in the keyboard setup, with the 13.3-inch and 14-inch model getting a smaller keyboard without a NumPad. The 845 laptop gets a column of shortcut keys, while the 855 gets a whole NumPad. The laptops’ weight and height are nearly identical to their predecessors, with the difference being below 50 grams.
All six laptops, both old and new, feature a Full HD IPS display.
