NOTE:
  • The Sure View Display version is 3.0. It reaches nearly 800 nits at max and has average brightness of around 698 nits. However, the viewing Angle is a bit narrower compared to a normal IPS panel without Sure View.
  • I have not given the update amount because the value showed in that page is not actually correct. There is a discount going on and the price increased is actually the price given in the HP site + that discount auto applied.
  • Instead of choosing Type-C Adapter, I have chosen the Barrel Pin connector because it will let you use the Type-C Port while charging. Also, any Third Party 45W to 65W Type-C Adapter will work and you probably already having one. Also, they are pretty cheap now a days.
  • $75 is available for 3 year limited Warranty (Price will be $1230.88).
  • You can choose 256GB SSD to get a final price of $1081.36, more than $100 Cheaper. This has a 2.5" Bay as well where you can add your own storage.

I spec'd it out with a 500 GB drive with the intention of installing an NVME drive that I already have on hand and even with the 3 year warranty, best display, best WiFi and Win 10 Pro, it came out to $1013.60.

Super tempting, but the one USB-C is only 10Gbps. I've read the Ryzen 4000U series has limited PCIe lanes, but it should still be able to support at least 1 Thunderbolt 3 port (or at the very least USB 3.1 gen 2).

Oh, and some are going to balk at the 1080p display, of course, but that doesn't bother me. I'm usually docked and a QHD screen on 14" is annoying for IT work.

EDITED: Removed USB spec confusion.

Dude, Thunderbolt 3 is not available for AMD Processors yet. And yes, it is having USB 3.1 Gen 2 and 10 Gbps is the speed for USB 3.1 gen 2.. Why are you saying that it should have it?? It is already having it.
You actually confused couple of things about Ryzen 4000 series. The PCIe limitation you are talking about is the absence of PCIe GEN 4 lanes whereas the normal Zen 2 based 3000 Desktop series has it. But that has nothing to do with Thunderbolt 3. Thunderbolt 3 uses PCIe 3.0 version and Ryzen 4000 has that. The reason it is not having TB3 is that until last year, it was a proprietary Intel technology. Intel has recently made it open source to USB consortium. But it will take some time for the other manufacturers to integrate it. For AMD, you still need a third party TB 3 controller and will take some time before Laptop OEMs start finalize it, optimize the firmware and start using.

Ha ha. You're right! I was confusing 3.1 Gen 2 with 3.2 2x2. (USB marketing names have become so freaking convoluted.) Hasn't seen that TB3 wasn't supported yet, only the 8 lane limitation for GPUs.

I think you meant USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 which provides 20 Gbps bandwidth, half than that of a Thunderbolt 3 connection. As per the new standard USB 3.1 will be called USB 3.2 and the older Gen 1 and Gen 2 connections are now called USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 3.2 Gen 2, offering same 5Gbps and 10 Gbps whereas USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 offering 20 Gbps.
As per my knowledge, there is no Ultrabook, Intel or AMD, supporting USB 3.2 Gen 2X2 yet. There are only handful of Comet Lake H series based Gaming Laptops like MSI GE and GL series, now offering that 3.2 Gen 2X2 connection.

Why not skip the RAM upgrade, it's over-priced? Same for the SSD? Mind you, then you have to take the time to install but the RAM can't be that bad. Right?

Anyone have any thoughts on now getting the webcam? And getting that separate? Call me paranoid but you can't access my webcam if I don't have one.

this is a fabulous deal with the base option. I selected no windows/base 1920p/4650u/wifi6 and it is like $550. I will add memory and drives separately. I have the previous elitebook version of this and it is high-quality laptop. The downside is HDMI 1.4 and no TB3 which limits multi-monitor options.

Why is Apple the only company to offer an affordable laptop display sharper than FHD? Is the retina level of graphics patented or something?

HP page doesn't have info on color gamut of display options.
Do any of them approach 100% sRGB?

The Type-C port supports DisplayPort which supports 4K at 60 Hz.

The Sure View option supports 72% NTSC which is equivalent to 99% sRGB approximately.
