HP's latest business-class beauty is now up for grabs, but you'll have to be willing to pony up some serious cash to jump in. The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 is available to purchase direct from HP (opens in new tab) starting at a pretty hefty $2,349. For your money, though, you'll score a business-centric notebook with all of the bells and whistles you could want.
As the x360 in its name implies, this EliteBook model can leverage its 360-degree hinge to flip and turn into tablet mode, tent mode, laptop mode, and everything in-between. On the inside, you can kit the EliteBook x360 1030 G2 out with up to Intel Core i7 processors (Kaby Lake, of course), 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of SSD storage. Also included are a bevy of ports, including USB-C, Thunderbolt, HDMI and micro SD.
One of the biggest features, however, is the inclusion of HP's Sure View integrated privacy screen. With a touch of a button the display makes it near impossible for people to see what you are doing on the laptop, which is helpful for companies who want to protect their data.
Lastly, the 13-inch notebook packs Wacom pen support, letting you ink away with an optional pen. There's also a fingerprint sensor on board with Windows Hello support to make securing your stuff that much easier.
Interested? If so, you can configure your own EliteBook x360 1030 G2 at HP's online store now.

No dGPU and low screen resolution... I think the Surface Book offers better value for money.
Or pick up it's bigger brother, the Spectre x360. Yes the 2017 is available and it's a great laptop and has many of the features of this one.
That was exactly my thoughts 1080p and no dGPU is robbery. Especially when the new x360 15 inch offers both those that this is missing for $2,000 less. What are they thinking?! I understand the secure stuff is worth something extra but not $2,000 extra!
All of that for only $3700!! o.O
Another convertible that flips the wrong way so your keyboard can pick up all the nastiness off Starbucks table. Fail.
No need to be a gremophobe. It's not going to pick up any more or less gunk than your hands, arms, elbows, or whatever else touches the table. It's not that big of a deal and if it is, grab some alcohol wipes and wipe the keyboard off. Or don't use it in that manner while out.
Do you put things down on dirty, crumby tables at home? Wipe the table down if it's that dirty. I'm sure any business that serves food will wipe or offer a cloth to clean a surface.
What's the right way in this case? And you can always wipe the table or use it in tent mode.
I wish elite x3 and 24" 4k screens had the same privacy filter.
Defo needed for successor to elite x3, i am unsure if it could be added via a software update on the existing model
