89% HP EliteBook x360 1030 G4 Review: Convertible with limited viewing angles | Notebookcheck
The HP EliteBook x360 G4 is based on its predecessor but offers a rather interesting touchscreen. It has a matte surface but is very difficult to read due to HP's screen protection technology. Find out what else the convertible has to offer in our review.

90% HP EliteBook x360 1030 G7 Convertible Review: A Spectre Dragonfly Hybrid | Notebookcheck
Whereas Lenovo and Dell have been slowly moving away from 16:9 to 16:10 for some of its higher-end office laptops, HP seems content with sticking to 16:9 for the time being. The EliteBook x360 1030 G7 is HP's best iteration of a 16:9 13.3-inch office subnotebook yet.

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G7 review: Not quite the business
Source: Expert Reviews English
In fairness, that’s what you should expect from a business laptop, and with a battery life of 9hrs 53mins in our video rundown test, support for Intel’s vPro and an excellent three-year warranty for parts and labour – upgradeable to on-site for £79 exc VAT – it will fit neatly into any fleet of managed laptops. Before you buy, though, make sure the intended users will make use of the privacy screen on their travels or you’ll be wasting money on a feature that in day-to-day use is a negative.

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel 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.

» 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.  

i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Comet Lake:

i7-10810U: Comet Lake based low power hexa-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.1 and 4.9 GHz with HyperThreading (12 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (12.5 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). The CPU supports vPro (as a difference to the i7-10710U).

i7-10610U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (unverified) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the similar Core i7-10510U, the 10610U supports vPro.
