Thin at 0.74", weighing 3.41 lb, and built from magnesium and aluminum, the 14" EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook from HP provides collaboration and connectivity features for growing businesses. This system is powered by a 2.1 GHz AMD PRO A12-8800B Quad-Core processor, which can boost up to 3.4 GHz if needed, and the 8GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking.
The 14" Twisted Nematic anti-glare display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution for a pixel density of 157 ppi. It also features LED-backlighting, a 16:9 aspect ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, a 300:1 typical contrast ratio, and a response time of 16ms. The integrated AMD Radeon R7 graphics controller delivers a sharp, clear picture and you'll be able to output video to an external display at resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz using the system's DisplayPort.
For long term storage of your files, this EliteBook 745 G3 is equipped with a 256GB M.2 SED Opal 2 MLC SSD that provides quick access to your data. While this SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning hard disc, it contains no moving parts which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as they don't have any read and write heads. This SSD is able to operate with sequential read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 460 MB/s. Additionally, as this SSD is a self-encrypting drive (Opal 2), data is encrypted so that an unauthorized person who gains possession of the device cannot see the data.
If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the EliteBook 745 G3 offers two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one USB 3.0 Type-C port, with one of the USB 3.0 Type-A ports doubling as a charging port. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi are built in for wired and wireless networking, and Bluetooth 4.0 + LE technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader lets users download content from their digital camera or other device. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, dual-array microphones, stereo speakers with Bang & Olufsen HD audio, a smart card reader, and a micro-SIM card slot.
The EliteBook 745 G3 includes a 45W Smart AC adapter that operates using 90-265 VAC at 47-63 Hz and an HP 3-cell / 44Wh Long Life Lithium-ion battery that lasts for up to 8.5 hours before recharging is required. Also included is Windows 7 Pro (32 & 64-bit). While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included at no additional cost.
