HP EliteBook 1030 starts at $1249 USD
The successful HP EliteBook 1020 has just got a successor, and its name is EliteBook 1030. According to its maker, this portable "sits right between the EliteBook Folio and EliteBook 1040" and is a premium business machine that can handle MIL-STD tests while remaining light and thin (2.55 pounds and 0.62 inches).
The highlights of the HP EliteBook 1030 include a 6th generation Intel Core M processor, up to 16 GB of memory and 512 GB SSD internal storage. The 4-cell battery offers no less than 13 hours of autonomy, which is 40 percent better than the EliteBook 1020 achieves. Next to the HP Premium keyboard, the EliteBook 1030 features a ClickPad with support for Windows 10 gestures. Although this machine is made using a 12.5-inch CNC-machined aluminum body, it features a 13.3-inch display with optional QHD+ touch screen.
HP EliteBook 1030 is Skype for Business certified and features Bang & Olufsen audio. It has a starting price of $1,249 USD and should become available for purchase globally by the end of the month.
