Model: The HP EliteBook 1030 G2-Z2W73EA x360 proofs that a work laptop should be no less sleek, comfortable or powerful than anything user would use at home. The laptop combines looks, performance (including a U-series Intel Core i7 CPU), a standout keyboard and a wide array of security features in a package. The silver, aluminum unibody laptop uses the company's modern logo found only on its top-of-the-line machines. Lifting the lid shows off the 13.3-inch, 1080p touch screen; backlit keyboard; and shiny, diamond cut around the touchpad and fingerprint reader. The 360-degree hinges allows the EliteBook to be used in several modes, including as a laptop, a tablet, a tent (an upside-down "V") and a display (with the keyboard facing rearwards). Armed with a 2.8-GHz Intel Core i7-7600U CPU, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB PCIe solid-state drive, the EliteBook is more than prepared for a cornucopia of research and spreadsheets. With its integrated Intel HD Graphics 620, the EliteBook x360 is not a strong graphics performer. This laptop is not made with gaming in mind. Nevertheless, the HD620 will be able to handle some of the games at low to medium settings. The EliteBook x360 is jam-packed with security options. Any organization can customize this 2-in-1 to fit its IT policy. A user can use the fingerprint reader and infrared camera with Windows Hello. Users who prefer a non-biometric way of logging in can use the smart card reader.This system also supports vPro for remote management, and TPM to encrypt their biometric data. Whenever a user reboots the computer, the HP SureStart kicks in. It verifies the BIOS and starts self-healing if there are any issues.

The EliteBook comes with a standard software suite pre-installed, with a few HP apps and some bloatware native to Windows 10. HP JumpStart makes it easy to register the laptop and download free software. If users pair the EliteBook with the WorkWise mobile app, a user will be able to check the PC's battery life, temperature, and remaining RAM and storage space from afar. The Windows 10 bloatware includes Facebook, Twitter, Minecraft, Candy Crush Soda Saga, and Sling. The 1.27 kg (2.8 pound), 31.75 x 21.84 x 1.54 cm (12.5 x 8.6 x 0.6 inch) EliteBook cuts a striking profile. It is smaller than the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (1.27 kg/2.8 pound, 33.27 x 22.86 x 1.78 cm/13.1 x 9 x 0.7 inch) and only slightly thicker than the consumer-grade HP Spectre x360 (1.32 kg/2.9 pound, 30.48 x 21.84 x 1.27 cm/12 x 8.6 x 0.5 inch). The sides of the laptop have enough ports to support a small cache of peripherals. The right side houses a USB 3.0 port, a headphone jack, and a smart-card reader. On the left, the user will find a microSD card slot, Thunderbolt 3, a Kensington lock slot, an HDMI output, another USB 3.0 port and the power jack.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


7600U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.8 to 3.9 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process. Integrates a HD Graphics 620 clocked at 300 - 1150 MHz and is manufactured in an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.28 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
