The EliteBook 810 G1 is not without its foibles. For example, the only physical indication that the battery is charging is a tiny LED on the unit's rear edge. It glows amber while charging and changes to white for a while when the battery is fully charged. And then it shuts off, offering no way to determine how much charge is in the battery without powering up the system. We'd call this a minor flaw, but the next few might be deal-breakers for some organizations.
