Home » HP’s latest Windows 10 laptop the EliteBook 1030 is a powerhouse

HP is a brand I rarely recommend to anyone when it comes down to purchasing a Windows computer. The design is usually cheap, but when it isn’t, the computer for the most part is solid. The same could be said for HP’s latest notebook. Not only is it powerful, but beautifully designed, though no on the same level as the Surface line.

Recently, HP announced what it calls the HP EliteBook 1030. This thing is rocking a Skylake Intel Core M processor and up to 16GB RAM. It also comes with a 13.3-inch display and 3200×1800 resolution.

The HP EliteBook 1030 laptop should meet the needs of many computer users, both business and home users. This laptop can be configured with either Windows 10 or the older but more stable, Windows 7.

Bear in mind the Intel Core M processor is not the most powerful, but for typical computing, it should work just fine. Furthermore, it is not hungry for battery power so laptops with this processor are generally excellent where battery capacity is concerned.

According to HP, it is possible to get around 13-hours of battery life, but it depends on the configuration. That’s a good number because the HP EliteBook 1030 could last for an entire day.

We understand it is possible to get 8GB worth of RAM instead of the maximum 16GB. However, we’d recommend spending the extra cash for the 16GB version because the RAM is soldered in, which means, it cannot be upgraded once it is in your hands. This is probably due to the design, but no matter the case, we’re not fans of the idea.

In terms of HDD, potential buyers can choose between 128GB to 256GB SSD. We’re happy there’s no option to choose between SSD and regular HDD. For those who are unaware, SSD drivers are faster than regular HDDs, but with that being a fact, these drives are more expensive to own.

The starting price for the HP EliteBook 1030 is $1249, and it can be bought via the official HP Store.
