With the fast-paced, almost-nomadic requirements of today’s work culture, flexibility is key. After all, half the world is working from home, or hybrid working right now. In a 2020 Thomson Reuters survey conducted with professionals working from home, 43 per cent of respondents reported experiencing interruptions during virtual meetings by distractions at home. Having a reliable, lightweight work laptop – whether to use at home or somewhere more conducive, or convenient – is thus ever more essential for the busy executive who wants flexibility and performance. 

Enter the HP EliteBook 840 Aero G8. Designed on the Intel Evo platform for a verified exceptional experience, the notebook PC is a powerful solution for a multi-place workday with qualities like performance, connectivity, and security to serve as a trustworthy companion. 

The device weighs in at an surprisingly light 1.13kg while boasting an 85 per cent screen-to-body ratio (a higher per cent indicates a thinner bezel) on a 14-inch screen. This is thanks to a 90 per cent magnesium chassis, a material that’s tougher and lighter than aluminium.

The HP EliteBook 840 Aero G8 is only 1.79 cm thick.

Even with its high portability, the EliteBook is packed with functionality. It comes with all the ports one would need: two high-performance Thunderbolt 4 ports; two USB-A ports, as well as support for 4K and 60FPS on multiple monitors. There’s also some juice backing up all the features. Designed on the Intel Evo platform powered by 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, the notebook comes with remarkable device responsiveness to keep up with today’s fast-paced lifestyle.

For those who are always on the go, you’ll be glad to know that the EliteBook 840 Aero G8 comes with fast-charging, long-lasting battery life, as well as the option for a SIM card slot supporting 4G LTE, helping you stay connected anywhere without the need for a personal hotspot. 

You can be assured knowing that privacy and security, paramount to any professional settings, are well taken care of. The EliteBook 840 Aero G8 has security features built into everything from the BIOS to your internet browser, as well as safeguards for physical intrusions. These include a privacy screen, and a tamper lock system that knows if someone has tried to open the cover of your laptop – both features that are especially important in environments where there might be potential shoulder surfing, or even a breach of your device.

Other innovations packed into the notebook include a new AI-based audio experience, HP Dynamic Audio. The function tunes output to speech, music, and movies while suppressing background noise, allowing users to take video calls, or review audio with clarity, even in noisy environments. All of this comes through twin, integrated Bang & Olufsen speakers. 

Of course, a changing world also comes with changing concerns – like how easy it is to sanitise your device. The EliteBook 840 Aero G8’s chassis can be completely and conveniently wiped down thanks to the HP Easy Clean button, which requires just one click to freeze all functions so you can thoroughly clean each component of the notebook, from the keyboard to the camera without having to turn the computer off. 

With the computing industry currently contributing to two per cent of global carbon emissions, HP is also determined to lower its footprint. In addition to being Energy Star-certified, the notebook’s speaker enclosure is produced from five per cent ocean-bound plastic; while the outside box and corrugated cushions are fully sustainably sourced and recyclable.
