2.5 / 5 stars - The EliteBook 745 G3 is a sleek business notebook, but its keyboard, display and battery life leave a lot to be desired. Review date: January 28, 2016 | Model: HP EliteBook 745 G3
The HP EliteBook 745 is a lightweight, attractive business notebook with powerful speakers, but it falls short in several key areas. The performance is decent enough, but less than 6 hours of battery life, a dull screen and an uncomfortable keyboard make it a less-than-compelling choice.For those looking for a new business notebook, we still recommend the Lenovo T450s for its excellent battery life, strong performance and extremely comfortable keyboard.Reviewed by: Andrew E.

3.5 / 5 stars - A solid AMD-powered laptop, but screen and battery life disappoint
Review date: October 4, 2018 | Model: HP EliteBook 745 G5
The HP EliteBook 745 G5 has some impressive features, including a solid build and a good array of ports. The keyboard is comfortable to use, although the cut-out for the pointing stick is oversized and makes typing with the G, H and B keys awkward. Unfortunately the screen is a big let-down, lacking in both brightness and in colour vibrancy. Also, based on my real-world testing, the battery is unlikely to support a full day's work.Reviewed by: Sandra Vogel | Read full review...
