4 reasons to BUY the HP EliteBook 850 G6
1. The keyboard
The keyboard of the HP EliteBook 850 G6 is very good. It features a backlight, decent key travel, nice feedback, and a NumPad section. On top of that, it has spill resistance and drainage.
2. Battery life
In our test lab, we achieved 16 hours of Web browsing and almost 14 hours of video playback. The predecessor, G5, has a disappointing battery life, but the new one is splendid.
3. Cool and quiet
No matter the load, this machine will always be cool and quiet. We measured 40.1°C under heavy stress which is a really strong result. The fans produce barely audible noise.
4. The look
It is a really stylish device with just an 18mm thin profile and a lightweight of 1.78 kg. The build is mostly made of aluminum. You can open the lid with a single hand and the speakers are Bang & Olufsen.
