Good question. Each series has dozens of different models/products and they are not CTO machines therefore we have to find out which one to buy. All BASIC models do not have those options therefore you have to look at more expensive machines first.
For example, the following list can give hundreds of different models/products (combinations):
Yes, I checked the specs already. One the one hand great to have many options, on the other hand, bad to not have some typical high end configurations, where the card reader is even missing in the most expensive Basic model. And so does the NFC module. Each at a price of around $20-25.
So now I am just wondering, since the Elitebooks are very maintainable if it's in contradiction to the warranty if one just replaces the NFC module and the card reader himself. I mean, HP even provides videos how to do this, right?
Anyway, apart from creating the BTO which introduces much longer delivery times, I wondered, whether it's going to be easier.
PS: the 840G8 even does only support GEN3.0 M2 SSDs, not 4.0 unfortunately. But still no argument to go with Lenovo. 😉
