HP’s latest premium business notebook is the 13.3-inch HP EliteBook 1030 G1, which sits in between the 12.5-inch HP EliteBook Folio G1 and the 14-inch HP EliteBook 1040 G3. The laptop is designed to pack a decent-sized screen into a very thin and compact chassis that offers functionality suitable for business travelers, that too with a claimed 13-hour battery life. Beginning at $1,249 (examined at $1,505), the thin, light-weight and classy HP EliteBook 1030 G1 makes working enjoyable with its long-lasting battery, stable keyboard, and zippy performance.
HP has earned a decent reputation for producing strong, functional small-format notebooks. Though it’s neither as thin nor as light like that to the HP EliteBook Folio G1, the fanless, passively cooled HP EliteBook 1030 G1 does have some compelling, vital features. The notebook comes with a 13.3-inch screen crammed into a thin chassis with a footprint of just 2.2 x 8.3 x 0.6 inches and weighing just 2.6 pounds. But does this thin and lightweight delivers what it needs to? Lets Check out in our Review on the HP EliteBook 1030 G1.
