The HP EliteBook 820 is a portable, business-friendly laptop which launched in late 2013. Current models of this 12.5 inch notebook feature Intel Haswell processors. But it looks like new models with Intel Broadwell chips are on the way.
A listing for the HP Elitebook 820 G2 showed up on the HP Malaysia website recently.
New models are said to feature 5th-gen Intel Core processors, vPro support on select models, options for HD or full HD displays, and an optional touchscreen on the 1080p model.
The laptop supports up to 16GB of RAM and has 2 SODIMM slots. HP will offer up to 1TB of hard drive storage or up to 256GB of solid state storage.
Other features include integrated Intel HD 5500 graphics, 3 USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort and VGA, an Ethernet jack, SDXC card reader, and support a docking connector for an optional docking station.
HP says the laptop has a spill resistant keyboard with a drain. There’s also an option for a backlit keyboard.
EliteBook laptops are part of HP’s business lineup and this model includes a smart card reader, TPM security, and an optional fingerprint reader.
HP hasn’t announce a price or release date for the EliteBook 820 G2 yet, but it’ll probably be priced comparably to the first-gen models… which means you’ll likely pay around $1000 or more to get your hands on this laptop when it launches.
