HP Elite x360 1040 G10 review – Transformer with Quiet Fan and Color-Accurate Display

HP states that the Elite x360 1040 G10 is designed for “Corporate executives who demand high performance, connectivity, and security”. In this case, the performance is ensured by four Intel Raptor Lake U CPU options. The cooling may look modest but the thermal system is doing its job well and that’s why our test device always feels snappy and responsive. For connectivity, you get Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth 5.3 – all look good here.

Every device relies on an IR Web camera, a lock slot, self-healing BIOS, and a dTPM 2.0 chip. So, the base level of security features is okay. For an additional amount of money, you can get a fingerprint reader, NFC, LTE or 5G connectivity, and a backlight for the keyboard. Yep, some of the most mouthwatering extras for a business device are optional.

As you may already guess, this is a 2-in-1 laptop and it has a 360-hinge so you can use it in a tent mode (for example). You can choose among three touch IPS 1200p displays but perhaps most of the wealthy CEOs should prefer the top variant which is a 1600p 120Hz model.  The notebook also boasts premium build quality and a light chassis.
