HP has announced a refreshed EliteBook x360 830 G8 with Intel Tiger Lake processors, up to 32GB of RAM, and up to a 2TB NVMe SSD. The EliteBook x360 830 G8 can be configured with an HP Sure View panel Reflect 1000 pixels as an option and also offers an Active Pen G3 with proximity alert and optional 5G connectivity.
The EliteBook x360 830 G6 from last year was a solid HP convertible laptop but it suffered from a less than ideal CPU. Now, we have an updated version, the EliteBook 830 G8, with improved internals and optional 5G connectivity.
The HP 830 G8 receives an upgrade to 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake processors with Core i5 and Core i7 options paired with up to 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM. The convertible is equipped with a 13.3-inch touchscreen with an optional HP Sure View Reflect display, with a brightness of 1000 pixels. Other display options include 400 nits and 250 nits anti-glare FHD touchscreen variants. Buyers can also purchase an HP G3 Rechargeable Active Pen, which includes a proximity alert to alert users if they leave the pen behind.
The HP EliteBook 830 G8 can be configured with up to 2TB NVMe SSD. Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 connectivity is available, while 5G Cat 20 and 4G LTE Cat 9 features can be configured as an option from the factory when ordering. The x360 830 G8 offers a decent port choice that includes 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports with DisplayPort, 2x USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A ports, 1x HDMI 2.0, a combo audio jack, and an optional nano-SIM card slot.
The new HP notebook also offers a 720p IR camera in select models. A 53 Wh 3-cell battery powers the laptop, which can be recharged quickly using a 65W USB-C charger.
