Reviews for the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G8, i7-1165G7
Source: Laptop Media
HP EliteBook x360 1030 G8’s IPS panel (IVO X133NVFF R0 (IVO8596)) in the configuration we tested has a Full HD resolution, very high maximum brightness, great contrast ratio and covers 90% of the sRGB gamut. Its backlight doesn’t flicker, making it safe for long periods of use. Additionally, the Sure View technology works great (if you need it), although the additional layer impacts the viewing angles even when the feature is turned off. Unfortunately, we measured a very high deviation in the luminance across the surface of the screen. This, combined with the rather poor color accuracy (although our Gaming and Web design improves the situation by a mile), makes the laptop less desirable for designers, and artists in general.

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.

74%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
