HP EliteBook x360 1040 G7 Review: A Spectre For Professionals

Great convertible, aging processor. Like the HP Dragonfly or Spectre series, the EliteBook x360 1040 G7 is one of the sleekest laptops for its size and category. Internally, however, the old Intel 10th gen Comet Lake-U processor is holding back the system from performing as well as most of the latest Ultrabooks in the market.

When we reviewed the EliteBook x360 1040 G5 two years ago, we ranked it as one of the best subnotebook convertibles money can buy because of its long list of integrated features for such a small and lightweight system. The latest generation EliteBook x360 1040 G7 aims to defend the crown by introducing a brand new chassis design with updated 10th gen Comet Lake-U processors while maintaining all the options that made the older G5 version great. The series has never been particularly cheap, but users are getting a lot of utility in return.

Configurable options are extensive ranging from Core i5 to Core i7 with or without vPro, 1080p or 4K with matte and glossy options, 8 GB to 32 GB of soldered LPDDR4-2933 RAM, optional NFC and WWAN, and up to 2 TB of M.2 storage. The full list of options can be found on the HP product page. The SKU we have for this review is a mid-range configuration with the Core i7-10810U CPU, 1080p glossy panel, 16 GB RAM, and 1 TB SSD for approximately $2600 USD retail.

Competitors in this space include other ultra-thin business laptops like the VAIO ZMSI Prestige 14 Evo, Dell Latitude 7410, or Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga.

Case

The most notable physical change from the EliteBook x360 1040 G5 is the narrower bezel along the bottom of the display for a noticeably shorter length. The end result is a design that is almost 9 percent smaller in volume without needing to reduce the size of the screen or drop any physical ports. Other superficial changes, like the "diamond cut" rear corners and sharper edges are derived from the Spectre series. Overall weight remains essentially the same as the older 1040 G5 model and so the 1040 G7 feels just as strong and even a bit denser than its immediate predecessor.

Connectivity

All ports from the EliteBook x360 1040 G5 have returned for the 1040 G7. The Power and volume buttons along the edges, however, have been removed likely due to low usage.

There is no SD card reader since HP is pushing its QuickDrop software feature instead. QuickDrop utilizes Wi-Fi Direct technology between two devices for wireless file transfers. The problem with this approach is that users might have to transfer their files to their smartphones first as an extra intermediate step before finally making the transfer to the HP laptop.

Communication

Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 come standard while the Intel XMM 7360 LTE Cat 9 is optional. eSIM is not supported and so users will still need to insert a Nano-SIM card for WAN connectivity.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by six T5 Torx screws with none hidden underneath the rubber feet. The edges and corners are sharp and tightly latched, however, so users should still be careful. The official HP maintenance manual can be found here.

Accessories and Warranty

Included in every box is a USB-C to USB-A cable alongside the usual paperwork. The Wacom AES 2.0 pen (P/N: L04729-003) is optional. Limited one-year warranty comes standard with the option to upgrade to three years for a fee.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Key size and typing experience haven't changed from the 1040 G5, but the font and several key functions have been updated. For example, the 'Pick Up', 'Hang Up', and 'Calendar' buttons on the older model have been replaced with an electronic camera shutter button, power button, and the insert key, respectively. The F12 key is now a customizable macro key that we wish could be incorporated on all laptops for more user freedom.

Touchpad

The clickpad here is larger than the clickpad on the 1040 G5 (11.5 x 7 cm vs. 11.1 x 6.5 cm) despite the fact that the 1040 G7 chassis is smaller overall. Cursor control is reliable with no jumping issues and the integrated mouse buttons are shallow with decent feedback. Clatter is moderately loud, however, and we still prefer the firmer dedicated mouse buttons of the EliteBook 845 series if given the choice.

Display

HP offers at least five different display options for the EliteBook x360 1040 G7 including 1080p, 4K HDR, Sure View, anti-glare, glossy, and 1000-nit panels. Our specific test is the lowest-end option (400-nits, 1080p, glossy) with a BOE panel in contrast to the Sharp panel on our EliteBook x360 1040 G5. It's still a high-end display no less due to its crisp images and deep colors that are comparable to newer Ultrabooks. Response times continue to be slow, however, meaning ghosting is still noticeable.

Interestingly, HP has removed the 120 Hz panel option that was available on the EliteBook x360 1040 G5.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers >95 percent of sRGB much like on most mid-range to high-end Ultrabooks these days. The 4K panel option from HP can offer even deeper and more accurate colors much like on the Vaio Z or Lenovo Yoga 9i 14.

X-Rite colorimeter measurements show an overly cool color temperature out of the box which can be addressed with a calibration. Both grayscale and color DeltaE values are excellent at just 2.4 and 2.18, respectively, after calibrating the panel ourselves.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
32 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17.2 ms rise
↘ 14.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 81 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
52.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 26.8 ms rise
↘ 25.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.3 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9713 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is average on our 400-nit test unit because of the glossy overlay and resulting glare. The 1000-nit option is over two times brighter than most other subnotebooks if outdoor visibility is a priority. Keep in mind that the anti-glare display will likely be grainier than glossy and that the option cannot be combined with the 1000-nit display; it's either one or the other.

Performance

Only 10th gen Comet Lake-U options are available on the EliteBook x360 1040 G7 due to the series support for Intel vPro. Newer Ice Lake or 11th gen Tiger Lake-U options would have been faster especially in terms of graphics performance, but vPro on Tiger Lake is not yet widely available at the time of writing. It would've been nice to see some AMD Ryzen SKUs to complement the Intel options nonetheless.

RAM is soldered and there are no discrete GPU options much like on the EliteBook x360 1040 G5.

 

Processor

CPU performance is within single-digit percentages of the average Core i7-10810U laptop in our database. Turbo Boost sustainability, however, is below average. The MSI Prestige 14 comes with the same Core i7 CPU and yet it is able to outscore our HP system in CineBench R15 xT by almost 40 percent before factoring in throttling as shown by our graph below.

Users who choose the Core i7-10710U option instead may see multi-thread performance gains of over 30 percent, but they would also lose out on the vPro security features of the Core i7-10810U.

System Performance

PCMark 10 results are where we expect them to be relative to other laptops with the same Core i7-10810U CPU. Nonetheless, the system scores consistently lower than many Ultrabooks with newer Tiger Lake CPUs due to the immense graphics advantages available on Intel's 11th gen platform.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon reveals DPC latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage even after several retests which is disappointing for what is supposed to be a reliable low-power business laptop. 4K video playback at 60 FPS is otherwise smooth and with no dropped frames.

GPU Performance

The UHD Graphics 620 is sorely outdated when put against newer integrated GPUs like the Iris Plus G7, Iris Xe, or the Radeon RX Vega series. Any sort of graphics editing would run significantly smoother on an Intel Ice Lake, Tiger Lake, or AMD Zen 2/Zen 3 laptop instead.

Emissions

System Noise

The cooling appears to be largely identical to the 1040 G5 even though the two systems look quite different from the outside. The fans will idle during most low-to-medium loads like web browsing or video streaming. Running 3DMark 06 for 90 seconds causes fan noise to jump to 30 dB(A) to still be quieter than many faster Tiger Lake Ultrabooks in the market. We're able to record a maximum of 38 dB(A) when running Prime95 which is a scenario most users will not be experiencing.

We can notice no electronic noise or coil whine on our test unit.

Cooling solution consists of twin ~30 mm fans and two heat pipes between them

The fans are smaller than on most other laptops leading to higher-pitched fan noise as a result

Stress Test

When stressed with Prime95 on High Performance mode, the CPU would boost to 3.2 GHz for just a few seconds until hitting a core temperature of 98 C. Clock rates would then drop to just 1.6 GHz in order to maintain a cooler 71 C core temperature. Turbo Boost sustainability is therefore mediocre at best which aligns with our CineBench loop test and power consumption observations.

Running on battery will limit CPU performance. A 3DMark 11 test on battery power would result in Physics and Graphics scores 8239 and 1939 points, respectively, compared to 9261 and 1959 points when on mains.

Power Consumption

Power consumption is lower than on the Whiskey Lake-U EliteBook x360 1040 G5 when running undemanding loads while the opposite is true when running more demanding loads. Most notably, running 3DMark 06 consumes about as much power as the Tiger Lake-powered Lenovo Yoga 9 14 or Dell XPS 13 9310 even though these alternatives are able to offer +200% faster graphics performance than our HP. The data shows how much the UHD Graphics 620 has fallen behind the latest integrated GPU solutions.

We're able to record a maximum of 70.8 W from the small (~8.7 x 5.5 x 2.1 cm) 65 W AC adapter when running Prime95. However, the rate is only temporary as shown by our graph below due to CPU thermal limitations.
