HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 (Core i5, Full HD) Convertible Review

 

A true favorite! HP's EliteBook series stands for high-end business laptops. In this review, you will find out if HP can follow up on their promises with this EliteBook x360 1030 G2.

fancy design ; flawless workmanship ; very good input devices ; good system performance ; no CPU throttling ; high flexibility due to 360-degree hinges ; low energy consumption ; very long battery life ; pleasantly quiet (often completely silent) ;...

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2

 

Despite its flashy exterior, the HP EliteBook x360 2-in-1 laptop is all business inside, with an Intel Core i7 processor, 14-hour battery life, and a comprehensive set of security features.

Business-calling-specific keys, audio features ; Superlight design ; Full-size ports ; Long battery life, plus quick-charge function ; Robust performance, in our maxed-out test configuration

Keyboard feels decent and clicky, but slightly shallow ; Tinny, low-impact audio for anything but speech

What's not to like in the EliteBook x360? We're jazzed about most aspects of this laptop, and we suspect you'll be even more so if you use your system as the hub of your business communications, not just as your computer. The audio functions, Skyping...
