What's cool about it: With the fifth-generation model of the EliteBook 830, aimed at mainstream corporate workers, HP has included its terrific aluminum-bodied design from higher-end EliteBook 1000 models. The bezels around the display are also slimmer than on previous models for a more-premium look and smaller size overall. The notebook offers solid performance from its eighth-gen Intel Core processors, and comes with a few security features that weren't available originally on the x360 models. Those include HP Sure Run, which helps to maintain and protect firewalls, and HP Sure Recover, which can detect if an image has been tampered with and recreate the original image without IT support.
