90.5% HP Elitebook x360 1040 G5 (i7-8650U, FHD) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
The latest EliteBook carries almost everything you want from an Ultrabook: tablet mode, super-bright display, 4G LTE, Thunderbolt 3, NFC, crisp keyboard, narrow bezels, long battery life... the list goes on and on. Just be ready to pay a hefty price when fully configured.
80% HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 review: Versatile but lacking distinction
Source: It Pro English
The EliteBook does just enough to warrant consideration for your business in our opinion. While there are drawbacks to the machine, there are other selling points it has in its favour, such as being more powerful than a similarly spec'd-out Surface Book 2. The EliteBook will also be an attractive option to those who frequently work outdoors as the anti-glare display coating isn't common but is definitely a game changer as far as nature-bound computing experiences go.

Source: Techradar English
The EliteBook x360 1040 G5 is the apex predator of the business laptop world, a magnificent beast with a big punch, but also a bigger price tag (compared to its rivals). There’s a lot to like about it but the competition is ferocious out there, both in terms of features and sales pitches. Shop wisely.

The HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 is one of the best PCs that I've used in a long time. It's really just phenomenal. I refuse to call any laptop perfect, because in a world of billions of devices, there's always something better out there. But this is one of those that I really want to call perfect.
