HP EliteBook 830 G6 features an aluminum chassis with a stylish yet industrial design. Its metal body is sturdy and HP claims that it can handle the knocks and bumps. We found the claim to be true and were unable to bow or bend its lid. This is arguably the toughest small screen business laptop in the market right now.

It is highly portable, while the ultra-slim design and narrow border display makes it easy for you to work.

The screen of this EliteBook sites inside deeper long-edge bezels and narrow short-edge bezels. Those who don’t much about short and deep bezels, deeper bezels prevent accidental screen presses. Whereas, the narrow bezels offer a compelling viewing experience by reducing the overall size of the laptop.
The keyboard is one of the plus points of the EliteBook 830 G6 and we found it to be pleasant and a pleasure to use. Whether you are a businessman or a writer, you are going to fall in love with it. Its keys are clicky, bouncy and well-weighted that spring back once you press them.
The backlight feature it auto-functional and comes with two brightness levels. The backlight will come as soon as you start typing that can be controlled with the function key. However, we found its keys a bit noisy and not suitable for libraries or other ultra-quiet working environments.
The EliteBook 830 G6 has enough ports on it most of which you’ll find on the right side. There are two Type-C USB ports with Thunderbolt, a USB 3.1 port, a 3.5mm headset jack and a full-size HDMI port. The left side houses a Smart Card slot and another USB 3.1 port.

We tested the EliteBook 830 G6 for its performance by running office programs and multiple Chrome tabs. The laptop didn’t hold back when we switched between different apps, while we were able to browse smoothly. However, the best features that mesmerized us was the Sure Sense and Sure View.
HP has introduced its Sure Sense for additional anti-malware security. The Sure View feature ensures that a person sitting beside you can’t peek at your system and you can activate with the F2 key.
The EliteBook encased a 3-Cell, 50Wh battery that can run up to 18 hours. This is a long-lasting battery that can help you accomplish your work with a single charge.
