Reviews for the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 45X96UT
The EliteBook x360 1030 G3 Core i7 SKU is a perfect example of why a pricier configuration may not always be the fastest when compared to a less expensive SKU. The Core i7 CPU on our HP is measurably slower than the same model with the more affordable Core i5.
Said upgrades enhance a laptop that already boasts an excellent keyboard and trackpad, decent battery life, top-notch build quality and a comprehensive list of security options. A heady mix, but we still fall short of absolute perfection as fan noise continues to be a bugbear, the top-end Core i7 chip will throttle when pushed, and though the display is brighter, it lacks the wow factor on offer from some of the competition.

Business convertibles don't come any better than the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, an executive 2-in-1 that combines ample power with a sunny 13.3-inch screen and a snappy keyboard in a petite 2.76-pound package.

The EliteBook x360 1030 G3 is an all-around great PC though. It has B&O speakers that fire right at you, a beautiful aluminum body, the ports you need, and it's a convertible. That means that you can use it as a laptop, a tablet, or anything in-between.

CommentIntel 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.

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.
8650U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.9 and 4.2 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
