HP EliteBook 745 G5 review: An interesting product, but not begging to go on anyone's shortlist


The AMD version of the 745 has enough power and battery life for most needs, but there's no X factor

Sleek design ; Long battery life ; Well-suited to office use

Not great value ; Disappointing display ; Poor gaming performance

While those prices include Windows 10 Pro and a three-year warranty, it’s still hard to call this model great value. The 745 G5 is an interesting product, due to AMD Ryzen Pro technology, but it’s not begging to go on anyone’s shortlist.

HP EliteBook 745 G5 review: A feast for the hands, not for the eyes


This security-laden laptop trips over some quality issues, even when it excels elsewhere

Sturdy design; Great keyboard and trackpad; Comprehensive security tools

Poor display; Short battery life; Performance seems lower than it should be

The EliteBook 745 G5 is a tale of two laptops: one, a beautifully-made professional notebook with lots of tools for keeping your data safe, the other a disappointing misstep with a budget-tier screen. The strengths just about outweigh the weaknesses...

HP EliteBook 745 G5 (Ryzen 7 2700U) Laptop Review


Very good disappointment. AMD Ryzen, mostly known for offering CPUs for consumer products, now want to compete with Intel in the business market. The EliteBook 745 G5, based on the very good EliteBook 840 G5, seems to fit the bill - at least on paper....

AMD CPU delivers a better boost performance ; Higher GPU performance than Intel-iGPUs ; Sturdy metal case ; Comfortable input devices ; Solid ports including a docking port ; Plenty of security features ; Stays always cool and usually silent ; 3 years...

CPU & GPU are throttled a lot in some cases ; Poor battery life compared to competitors ; No Thunderbolt 3 ; No high resolution display option ; SSD slow for a PCIe-NVMe-SSD ; No SD card reader ; Doesn't reach 100% sRGB

At the time of writing the verdict, the HP EliteBook 840 G5 was the best device in our rankings. Built on this very good foundation, an EliteBook 745 G5 with AMD CPUs sounds quite promising! Sometimes very good is not enough: The Intel laptop EliteBook...

HP EliteBook 745 G5 review: A solid AMD-powered laptop, but screen and battery life disappoint Review | ZDNet


The EliteBook 745 is well built and has a decent keyboard, but the 14-inch screen lacks brightness and colour vibrancy, while battery life could be better.

Solid build ; Good array of ports and connectors ; Good security features

Display lacks brightness and is reflective ; Disappointing battery life
