HP EliteBook 840-G1 Intel i7 512GB Laptop

What I said last time, plus a nice discussion:


I’ve used the same (i5 version) laptop at work for the past 2+ years and overall it’s just OK. The only part that’s gone bad early was a battery that disconnected when lifted from front left corner, but resolved itself with a new battery. The most painful part is the slippery keyboard, very different to type quickly without the tops of your fingers slipping off the keys. Otherwise, the laptop is docked 75% of the time so it’s not too huge of an issue. Touch screen is good, but a little laggy. Performance is mediocre. Battery life is great, 5+ hours when new. Dock only supports two monitors even though it has three ports (fixed with a USB to VGA adapter).
