Reviews for the HP EliteBook 1040 G9, i7-1255U

To summarize, from our time with the HP EliteBook 1040 G9, we learned that it is a very good business notebook. It has a ton of security features, as well as optional 5G support. This means you can work from pretty much anywhere in the world. This is also possible thanks to the decent battery life – we got about 14 hours of Web browsing or 10 hours of video playback on a single charge. It features a 65W USB Type-C power adapter. Provided you’re not with an iPhone, you can charge at least two of your mobile devices with one charger (one at a time). In addition, the machine provides two Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI 2.0 connector, two regularly-sized USBs, and a Smart Card reader. HP EliteBook 1040 G9’s IPS panel has a WUXGA resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a very good contrast ratio. It covers 99% of the sRGB color gamut, which results in a fairly attractive image to look at.

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.
