Reviews for the HP Elite c1030, i7-10610U
Albeit pricey, the HP Elite c1030 Chromebook Enterprise is an excellent solution for businesses that use Chromebooks in their workspace. With optional Enterprise Upgrade and Parallels Desktop for using Windows 10, this Chromebook has the best of both worlds.

At this point, we finally have to talk money. You don’t get everything we’ve covered in this review on the cheap, but if you value fit and finish, extra perks, and not having to compromise on the feel and quality of the parts that make up your Chromebook, you see where this is going: it comes at a price. The consumer model starts at $999 and the model we tested with the specs all maxed out (Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, anti-glare screen) comes in at $1561.96 and with LTE on board, it hops up to $1956.36. That’s a lot of money, but most of you would be just fine with the $999 if we’re being honest.

At almost two and a half times the price of the Acer Spin 713, the HP Elite c1030 Chromebook Enterprise is way out of reach for consumers seeking a peppy Chromebook convertible with a handsome 3:2 aspect ratio display. (Plus, Acer upstages HP by providing a sharper screen and an HDMI port.)

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i7-10610U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (unverified) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the similar Core i7-10510U, the 10610U supports vPro.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
