Dell's XPS 15 receives a lot of attention that other manufacturers would like to get as well. Of course HP would also like to compete with Dell's premium laptop. So HP has introduced a device that aims to impress with a unibody case, business features, and powerful components into the market. Find out in our extensive review, whether the new EliteBook 1050 G1 succeeds in this.
HP EliteBook 1050 – true competitor for the Dell XPS 15 and Apple MacBook Pro
Source: Ultrabook Review English
All in all, if you’re looking for an alternative to the Dell XPS 15 and Asus Zenbook Pro with more business-friendly features such as a proper webcam and more security options, as well as a big battery, dual Thunderbolt 3 and dual-storage, the HP EliteBook 1050 looks like it could be something to keep in mind. Just try to get your company to pay for it instead. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme is another alternative to consider, with a plethora of business features as well, lighter construction, smaller battery and more affordable price.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q: Efficient mid-range graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP107 chip as the normal GTX 1050 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 10 - 15% lower performance than the laptop GTX 1050 but at a much lower power consumption. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » 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.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
