The new HP Elitebook 835 G9 continues the inherent characteristics of the Elitebook series. The body is built from high-strength metal, which has good pressure resistance and is more wear-resistant; the edge of the body is round pillow design. The superb craftsmanship not only brings great practicality, but its exquisitely polished silver gray metallic luster and finely frosted surface, with a strong business style and a delicate and refreshing feel that is not easily stained with fingerprints.
On the back of the screen is the HP logo, which represents the higher positioning of this laptop. It is suitable for use in various office, meeting and business scenarios.
The new 13.3-inch Elitebook 835 G9 weighs less than 1.3KG, so the portability is maintained quite well.
The keyboard and touchpad have always been a major feature of the HP series laptops in my opinion. The keystroke of the keyboard is 1.5mm, the rebound is fast, and the key distance is large. The accidental touch during typing is greatly reduced, and the touchpad feels very smooth. The most commendable thing is that whether it is the keyboard or the touchpad, there is no loose feeling when pressing, and it is very firm and reliable, which is very rare in the thin and light business laptops in this price range. It can also operate smoothly without a mouse. In addition, there is a fingerprint module in the lower right corner of the keyboard, and the entire keyboard has two-level backlight adjustment.
The left side of the body is an HDMI 2.0 port, USB-A 3.1 Gen1 port, two Type-C (USB-4) ports; the right side of the body is a 3.5mm headset port, USB-A 3.1 Gen1 port in turn. The rich port is an inherent feature of the business book, which can basically meet the daily needs of most people.
HP Elitebook 835 G9 brings a 16:10 ratio screen. Compared with 16:9 screen, the 16:10 screen can display more content in the vertical direction, which is more suitable for browsing web, editing documents, or viewing PDF files in office.
After testing, this screen covers 100% sRGB with a maximum brightness of 470 nits and an average Delta E of 0.7, which is typical of a high color gamut screen with high screen brightness, so you can see the screen clearly even in a high light intensity environment. In addition, this screen is a 1W low-power screen, which can bring a longer battery life, and the screen also passed the HP low blue light certification and supported automatic brightness adjustment.
In addition, it adopts a narrow frame design with a screen ratio of 87%. The upper frame of the screen is wider than the left and right frames due to the integration of functions such as a 5-megapixel camera, IR infrared lens, light sensing, and physical occlusion of the camera.
The new HP Elitebook 835 G9 has been updated to the AMD Ryzen 6000 series processor. Mine is equipped with AMD Ryzen R7 6800U. It is based on TSMC 6nm FinFET process, 8 cores and 16 threads, the base frequency is 2.7GHz, and the maximum turbo frequency is 4.7GHz. L3 cache 16MB, cTDP 15-28W.
Generally speaking, the CPU of this R76800U can easily handle daily office work, as well as some light design work; the GPU has been significantly improved compared to the previous Vega8, and the performance of the core graphics has been improved to a new level. The height of the game is higher, the entertainment performance is stronger, and more usage scenarios are expanded.
The HP Elitebook 835 G9 features a 16GB dual-channel DDR5 4800MHz memory and a 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSD. The SSD is Western Digital’s SN810 with 512GB capacity and supports PCIe 4.0, with a measured maximum read speed of 6991MB/S, and a maximum write speed of 4389MB/S, which is a top-level SSD.
Using the modern office mode of PCMARK10 for the battery life test, connecting to WiFi, and turning on the power saving mode of Win11, the final battery life score was 13 hours. Generally, Most the 13-inch and 14-inch business notebooks are scored in 9 to 12 hours in this test. The HP Elitebook 835 G9 can get more than 13 hours, which is very outstanding.
The reason why the HP Elitebook 835 G9 can have such a battery life is first of all due to the excellent power consumption control of the Ryzen processor in these generations, coupled with the relatively large capacity 3-cell 51Wh battery, 1W low power screen in the Elitebook 835 G9, when the charger is not plugged in, makes this business notebook fully capable of meeting a normal office day.
In general, the HP Elitebook 835 G9 is a pure business notebook that can give users a higher experience at the mainstream price. It is suitable for all kinds of business people. The HP Elitebook 830 has been developed for 9 generations today. The Elitebook 830 G5, Elitebook 830 G6, and Elitebook 830 G7 used to be very popular, and Elitebook 835 G9 has been enhanced in order to fit the current flexible office format, making this notebook more feature-rich and enhancing the user experience in the daily office.
