In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

HP EliteBook 840 G8 in-depth review

This is the third laptop from the eight-generation EliteBook 800 series we have in our office. What we learned testing other notebooks from this series is that HP has produced business notebooks with very high quality. However, they seem to lack a bit of performance and don't happen to be a very good choice for a year-on-year upgrade.Let's not make any assumptions for the EliteBook 840 G8 though. As an enterprise model, you have to keep in mind, that it is loaded with firmware and software security enhancements. In terms of performance, you can make use of up to a Core i7-1185G7 and a GeF[...]

Pros

  • Decent battery life
  • PCIe x4 support + 64GB of DDR4 memory in dual-channel
  • Two Thunderbolt 4 connectors, Wi-Fi 6, and optional 5G support

  • Doesn't use PWM for brightness adjustment (AUO AUO068B)
  • Spill-resistant keyboard
  • IR face recognition and fingerprint reader

Cons

  • No SD card reader
