HP has launched the EliteBook x360 1020 G2 convertible at its annual World Partner Forum in Chicago featuring 7th generation Intel Core processor options, long battery life, and a bright 700 nit display. HP bills it as the world's thinnest and lightest business convertible.

At its annual World Partner Forum in Chicago yesterday, HP highlighted some of the new PC experiences for work, life and collaboration. Part of that includes the launch of the HP EliteBook x360 1020 G2. The EliteBook x360 (as the name suggests) is a convertible targeted at businesses. At 13.9mm thickness and weighing 2.5 lbs, HP claims that the EliteBook x360 1020 G2 is the world's thinnest and lightest business convertible. 

The notebook features 5 screen modes — tent, laptop, media, tablet and conference modes, making it versatile for any content. The ultra bright (700 nit) screen is a 12.5-incher with options for an FHD non-touch or UHD touch panel. The press release says that the notebook offers CPU choices up to a 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor but not too many details were given with respect to other components. The notebook aims to excel in both business and multimedia aided by the 5 built-in speakers tuned by Bang & Olufsen. HP is advocating the security and manageability aspects of the notebook with features such as HP Sure Click (for protection from malware), HP Sure View (a 3M screen for enhanced privacy), HP Sure Start Gen3 (for enterprise-ready BIOS management) and HP Multi Factor Authenticate (for hardened authentication using a combination of hardware and software). The notebook comes installed with Windows 10 Pro and supports Windows Ink-based handwriting recognition via the optional HP Active Pen. The EliteBook x360 is designed to pass MIL-STD 810G testing for best-in-class durability. 

The EliteBook x360 1020 G2 is slated to be available in September with prices starting from US$1,379 although, it is not yet clear what would be exact configuration one would be getting for that price.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
