HP Elitebook 840 G5


So far I haven’t encountered any compatibility issues. Suspend/resume works. I am able to access a FIDO usb stick with CTAP configured. Wifi works, though I need to point out I upgraded the wifi card from the stock 8265 to a 9260, before installing qubes, for better performance.
