HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5

 

The HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5's slight stature, excellent build quality, and range of customization options make it an appealing ultra-premium 2-in-1 laptop for business use.

Comfortable keyboard. Unique anti-glare display. Fast charging. Long battery life. Very thin and light. Multiple customization options, including Intel vPro support. Thunderbolt 3 port.

Frequent fan noise. Expensive as configured.

Bottom Line: The HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5's slight stature, excellent build quality, and range of customization options make it an appealing ultra-premium 2-in-1 laptop for business use.

HP Elitebook x360 1040 G5 (i7-8650U, FHD) Convertible Review

 

A flagship business convertible that seemingly has it all. The new EliteBook x360 1040 G5 is everything we love about the 13.3-inch EliteBook x360 1030 G4 in a 14-inch screen size. Unfortunately, it has the same disadvantages as its smaller sibling.

The 14-inch Elitebook x360 1040 G5 is a 360-degree convertible laptop with solid build quality and a good range of specification choices, although high-end variants are very expensive.

Compact, solidly built 14-inch convertible ; Long battery life ; Good stereo speakers ; HP Sure View Privacy Screen option ; 4G LTE option

Expensive with additional options ; Active Pen is not bundled ; No privacy slider for webcam
