HP EliteBook 840 G1 14” Laptop with Intel Core i5-4300U Processor
At under an inch thick, this lightweight laptop fits easily in backpacks and totes so you can bring it to the office, library, or coffee shop. Despite its travel-friendly build, it still houses a dual-core processor for smooth multitasking and 750GB hard drive for storing your media library.
Windows 10 Pro
Windows 10 Pro meets the demands of business-minded users with a suite of productivity and security software. Keep calendars and emails organized with the Cortana digital assistant, take notes directly on webpages with Microsoft Edge, and leave the office with peace of mind knowing that your data is safely secured under multiple layers of digital security. And if you forget to do something before heading home, you can remotely log on to your work computer to tie up loose ends.
Smooth, Fluid Multitasking
Listen to your favorite music playlist while typing up a report, or make dinner reservations while watching a movie in a separate window. This laptop’s Intel Core i5 processor divvies up simultaneously running tasks among its two independent cores, minimizing onscreen lag as you juggle programs and apps.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 10 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backward compatibility.
Seamless Digital Organization with Cortana
Designed to keep you organized and informed, Cortana is a nimble digital assistant that works on every Windows 10 device. The program helps you set time-, person-, or location-based reminders, then pushes them out to your compatible PC, tablet, and smartphone simultaneously when needed. On compatible devices, Cortana also recognizes voice commands and lets you dictate emails with ease.

When iconic company HP was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used it during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands like Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends like the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
