HP's new EliteBook 1030 is a thin-and-light laptop for the business crowd

HP has announced a new addition to its Windows 10 business notebooks, the EliteBook 1030. The notebook will go on sale later this month for a starting price of $1,249 (opens in new tab).

The notebook squeezes in a 13.3-inch display inside a case that's normally made for a 12.2-inch screen. Customers can get a regular non-touch HD display or go all out with a touchscreen with a resolution of 3200x 1800.

Inside, the laptop will have Intel's sixth-generation Core M processors, along with support for up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage. The 2.55 pound HP Elitebook 1030 will also have a 40 Wh battery that offers up to 13 hours of power.

  • x3 phone? No? Ok then...
  • From the product page: "Boot up almost instantly and load programs in second with up to 512GB7 of SSD storage, including a 256GB PCIe-based SSD storage option." Who wrote that, a chicken?
  • I want this so bad
  • Junk !
  • They added a clickpad to an Elitebook.  Wow, next laptop will be a Precision/Thinkpad Search up 8460p and 8570w. Those were nice models
  • Still no spectre x360 with oled Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It's launched now, check HP website.
  • Does it have backlit keyboard?
  • don't seem impressed at all. More so given the price point. It is not a cheap laptop where you would expect somethings to not be there. This is a premium laptop made for business users. Needed to be better. One thing that I really liked is that they increased the screen size without increasing the dimensions for the laptop. That is the way forward in my opinion. Instead of freaking over reducing the thickness and weight, the manufacturers must focus on reducing untilized space in the form of bezels on all sides.
  • Yeah... I'm curious about the decision to use Core M processors here. For $1250, I'd expect at least a Core i5, but I believe they're gunning for the same saps who are interested in the Macbook.
