HP debuted a new laptop today, a business and productivity oriented model, that has a pretty compact format. It comes with a 14 inch screen and a convertible design, plus up to 32 GB of RAM. Let’s see the price.
EliteBook x360 1040 G5 measures 0.7 inches in thickness, weighs 3 pounds and uses a 56.2 Wh battery. It’ll be available later this month, starting from $1499 and up. The configs go up to a Core i7 8th gen, up to 32 GB of RAM and 2 TB of storage with Intel Optane compatibility. We’ve got Full HD or 4K versions and the connectivity includes two Thunderbolt 3/Type-C ports, plus two regular USB 3.1 ports, HDMI and audio jack.
Quad speakers are in the mix here and for security there’s an IR camera and a fingerprint scanner too. A spill resistant keyboard makes the cut as well, plus 3 microphones used for noise cancelling during conference calls. Back to the connectivity, we’ve got WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC, plus optionally there’s also 4G LTE (Gigabit Class). HP also added its special features like the SureView privacy screen, the Sure Start self healing BIOS and Sure Recover feature.
Sure Click protection is also here. 700 nits of brightness are promised from the screen and it’s supposed to be perfect even in full sunlight. The starting version has a Core i5, just in case you were wondering.
