Business Elite. With the Elite x2 1012 G1, HP takes on Microsoft's Surface Pro 4. The convertible offers a keyboard dock, an active stylus and an LTE modem. At almost 1500 Euros (~$1690), the complete package doesn't come cheap, however.

HP EliteBook 820 G3 Subnotebook Review

85% HP EliteBook 820 G3 Subnotebook Review

Let down by the display. The third generation of the HP EliteBook 820 is a compact subnotebook with a 12.5-inch screen, which is designed for business environments.

87% Lenovo ThinkPad T460p (Core i7, GeForce 940MX) Notebook Review

Small hot-head. Quad-core processor and a discrete GeForce GPU implemented into a compact 14-inch case – the ThinkPad T460p is definitely not your regular business notebook. The good performance does, however, also result in high temperatures.

Lightweight. This is premium range business for well-heeled customers: The entire who-is-who of laptop technology is on-board for 2000 Euros (~$2252).
