HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 review

 

An elegant solution for business computing on the move

Excellent value for money ; Superb performance and battery life ; Attractive optional features

SATA SSD ; Proprietary power port

The EliteBook x360 is an excellent workhorse 2-in-1 which is strong in a lot of respects. There are a couple of pain points, but none bad enough to distract us from the sheer quality of this HP laptop.

HP EliteBook x360 review

 

A review of the EliteBook x360 1030 G2, a business laptop that oozes style but has the security features that businesses need. It doesn't come cheap, though.

Parts of the HP EliteBook X360 1030 G2 can’t match those of consumer laptops around the price. The screen isn't super-bright and you’ll find higher-resolution panels too.

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) ;...

low display brightness ; no NVMe SSD ; 256 GB SSD ; hardly any possibilities for expansion

The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 is more than a classic business notebook. Due to the 360-degree hinges, this device is extremely flexible and the HP Active Pen enables creativity to run free. The many multimedia functions are another great feature of our...

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.

Long battery life. Intel Core i7 power. Compact, convertible form factor. Premium construction and design. USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 port and USB 3.0 ports. Windows Hello works with fingerprint reader and IR webcam.

512GB SSD and 16GB of RAM make it somewhat pricey. Lacks on-board storage for Active Pen.

The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 offers a flashy exterior that distinguishes it from its more sedate-looking competitors, like the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga. Its full feature set also sets it apart. True, it's almost $500 more...

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 Review and Ratings

 

A superior rotating 2-in-1 for business, the x360 emphasizes collaboration features, battery life, pen input, and max mobility in a classy 13.3-inch machine you'll be proud to carry.

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...

Exactly whats is us supposed to be..

 

The laptop is fast, small, light, and looks very cool. I could not ask for anything more here, and the price is better than any other alternative,. One other thing, I sprung for the 3840 X 2160 option and use it at my desk with a new 4K uhd monitor. It...

Windows 10 and HP EliteBook x360 don't mix

 

On day one. I turned on the computer and went through all of the normal boot up procedures and it restarted once after all the updates. When I installed Apple iCloud drive for windows 10 and restarted, it took part of the boot drivers off and now I'm...

The Best of All Worlds

 

This Notebook, which should be called a hybrid PC-Tablet, is nothing short of amazing. It is lightweight, powerful, and can fill the need for a tablet, all within a Windows 10 powerful PC. Does EVERYTHING anyone could want.
