The laptops from the EliteBook 800 lineup belong to the upper-range business laptops. We have tested many models from this series, and now have the 14-inch model of the line with the EliteBook 840 G2. The biggest modernization is the Broadwell processor. Apart from that, nothing has changed compared to the former Haswell-based EliteBook 840 G1. The latter managed to deliver a "Good" in our test (87%). Our report reveals whether the G2 model can score even better.

Thus, the maximum brightness is far from perfect – 186 cd / m2, it is barely enough for a comfortable chat with laptop in bright light. And LED lights are very weak to somehow correct this deficiency. Using TN-panel provides poor viewing angles, even a slight change in slope of the cover leads to a distortion of the image. For everyday office tasks such resource will be sufficient, but more should not count.

Two speakers located above the keyboard, and they disappoint their work completely, and especially do not help even configure DTS Studio Sound.

In notebook built island keyboard with a large distance between the buttons, so here just does not fit a number of function keys [End], [Delete], and others.

HP EliteBook 725 G2 review (J0H65AW) is running Windows 7 Pro (64-bit). As the processor supports quad ULV APU with a TDP of 19 W AMD A10 Pro-7350B. It is worth noting that it meets not only the smallest model series and 745 G2, and 755 G2. The operating frequency of 2.1 to 3.3 GHz and 4 MB of cache provides decent performance at the level of everyday tasks, roughly comparable to the capacity of a competitor from Intel – Core i3-4100U (Haswell).
