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.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
