HP Laptops pass rigorous military environment tests

The military MIL-STD-810G standard, which is becoming increasingly important, indicates to what extent electronics are resistant to external influences such as temperature, moisture, dust, shocks and vibrations. This is especially important for devices used in difficult conditions. Think for example of shipyards and production environments. Even those who use their equipment in a relatively safe environment benefit from a certain robustness.

More and more people are working on the move. Laptops and tablets are always on the move and have to take a beating or stay behind in an overheated car. Manufacturers of laptops and tablets therefore pay a lot of attention to this strict standard.

MIL-STD-810G: marketers love it

HP Partner First Platinum logo | VanRoey.beUnpacking with a military standard comes naturally nicely to the user. Almost all manufacturers refer to it, but not everyone tests at the same level. Please note that the MIL-STD-810G standard includes a very extensive set of tests: drop tests, vibration tests, dust-penetration tests, altitude tests, temperature tests, humidity tests, radiation tests, ... We can go on like this. Different categories and procedures have also been determined for many tests. Dropping a device 26 times on all possible sides and corners has a different effect than one fall on the legs. To say it's a complex fact.

Marketers are quick to swing the MIL-STD-810G standard when a device has only passed a limited set of tests. The many tests that the device does not pass are usually kept quiet in all languages. HP is an exception. They are very transparent about the test results of their devices. They make them publicly available.

HP Elite and Z-Book clients score high on the MIL-STD-810G

All HP clients are subjected to the MIL-STD-810G tests to a greater or lesser extent. In particular the business appliances from the Elite and Z-Book range leave the competition far behind. There is also a clear difference between the different Gx models. As well in the Elite as in the Z-Book range, the G4-6 models perform better on shock tests than the G1-3 models. The test procedures are explained in detail.

HP does not abuse these test results, but it does substantiate the soundness of its products. The fact that few other manufacturers are able to provide similar results shows that HP is far ahead of the curve in this area.

Don't be fooled! Know that the MIL-STD-810G standard includes a very extensive set of tests and that not all manufacturers communicate transparently about the tests their devices undergo. At HP, you know very well what you get for your money.
