HP Elitebook 800 G4 series laptops with Kaby Lake, enhanced security features announced
HP has expanded its Elitebook 800 business class Windows 10 laptop line up with three new models featuring Intel Kaby Lake processor. In addition HP will also add new security features to secure user’s identity and data.
Starting with the EliteBook 800 G4 series laptops HP will include Sure Start Gen 3 security, which is designed to automatically detect tampering attempts on the BIOS from attacks and notify the user. BIOS is firmware that starts the laptop before the operating system software boots.
HP Sure Start Gen3 will help prevent such attacks by automatically detecting tampering attempts with the BIOS (both in pre-boot and run-time), notifying the user of a problem and restoring the BIOS to its original pristine condition from a copy stored on a dedicated computer chip. In that sense, it’s self-healing.
The HP EliteBook 800 G4 series laptop comes in 12.5-inch, 14-inch and 15.6-inch screen models. The smallest model with 12-inch display can be configured with HD (1280 x 720)/Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, touchscreen option, Core i3/Core i5/Core i7 Kaby Lake processors w/ Intel HD graphics, up to 32GB DDR4 RAM and up to 512GB SSD or 1TB HDD.
It will include a USB Type-C port, USB 3.1 port, VGA port, Ethernet and DisplayPort Jacks, NFC, Webcam for Windows Hello, fingerprint scanner and more.
The 14-inch model will be available with the same configuration as 12.5-inch model, but come with with the option of 2560 x 1440 pixel display in addition to HD/Full HD and pack slightly bigger battery.
Lastly the 15.6-inch model will be available in 3840 x 2160 pixel, 1920 x 1080 pixel or 1366 x 768 pixel display option. In addition you get the option opt for AMD Radeon R7 M465 graphics. Rest of the configuration is similar to the 12.5-inch and 14-inch Elitebook 850 G4 laptops.
