HP EliteBook 1040 G3 review

 

A Windows-based MacBook Pro rival

Super thin ; Lightweight ; Core i7

No 4K option ; Only 512GB storage

The HP EliteBook 1040 G3 is a well-built business-class device. If it's capable of performing at the same level as laptops with a similar processor, it will be worthy of your consideration.

HP EliteBook 1040 G3

 

The HP EliteBook 1040 G3 is a highly portable business laptop loaded with security features, including an innovative display that makes it easy to keep prying eyes away from your sensitive business data.

Privacy-focused screen design. Includes USB-C port. Biometrics, smart card, and self-encrypting drive help keep your data secure. 16GB of memory. Good productivity performance.

Screen can appear fuzzy. Middling battery life.

If you're already used to the annoyances of a removable privacy screen, then the HP EliteBook 1040 G3 is a fine solution. It's fast, durable, comfortable to use—a modern business laptop in every sense of the word. But if you or your workers aren't...

HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G3 Notebook Review

 

Great display, but expensive. The new EliteBook Folio 1040 G3 is the current premium model from HP. This is also the case for the price, but can the test model justify the additional price over the strong rivals?

great WQHD panel without PWM ; very good build quality ; thin and light ; very good keyboard ; integrated LTE + free mobile data ; adapter for VGA/Ethernet included ; very good performance

mediocre battery runtimes ; no SD-card reader ; no Thunderbolt 3 support ; price

HP’s EliteBook Folio 1040 G3 is certainly no revolution, but this was not necessary when you consider the good predecessor. We are still impressed by the case, even though the stability at the right side of the keyboard should be improved. The ports...

HP EliteBook 1040 G3 Review and Ratings

 

It turns opaque to onlookers at the touch of a button, but the innovative display of HP's new business notebook is its greatest drawback as well as its niftiest feature.

Sure View screen blocks side glances ; Docking and USB-C connectors ; Security support

Screen is dim and dull even viewed head on ; Mediocre battery life ; Awkward arrow keys

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1

 

The rugged HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 ultrabook is equipped with a touch screen and trades physical connectivity for a slim and portable chassis. It's a good choice for a business that needs to buy new PCs for an entire staff.
