Elitebook 840 G7/G8

HP Recommended

Dear Community,

 

I have checked the specs and order-options of the recent Elitebooks 840/830/850 G7+G8 and I have read, that NFC might be included - depending on the models.

However I could not find any "option" that allows it to be added to the device while ordering it, nor could I see whether it is included or not albeit the cost will likely be neglectable.

Apart from that I could neither gather information, if newer models, like the 840 G8, will support SSDs M2.0 Gen 3x4 only or Gen 4x4 as well.

 

Do you have ideas or answers? I have checked with HP's sales already, and they couldnt answer this - which is very strange though.

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read&answer.

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. 😉
