Design and Handling

The HP Elitebook X360 features a sleek silver plastic chassis and lid with the iconic glossy HP logo to add an air of sophistication. Although it’s not made out of metal, this laptop will surely impress your colleagues in any executive meeting room. Not only is its design pleasing to the eye, but it is also incredibly robust, with a magnesium-alloy subframe that allows for extreme strength and stability. Applying torque or twisting force has absolutely no effect on the lid; it remains solid as ever! The glossy, glass touchscreen feels very sturdy and reinforces the strength of this device, in contrast to its gaming-oriented counterparts. On top of that, the hinge is well-balanced and reliable.
When you first open it, the glossy touchscreen captures your attention with its vivid brightness and
crisp 1,920 x 1,200 resolution Windows Desktop. The multimedia performance is top-notch –
showcasing excellent colour gradients (with minimal stepping), high contrast levels, and stunning
detail. Despite being slightly muted, the colours of this screen remain vibrant and vivid. Monochromatic gradients also maintain their resolution with little to no aberrations present. While
dark scenes can still cause some difficulty in visibility, this monitor performs better than any other at banishing them away. Boasting an impressive 60Hz refresh rate and fast pixel response time, this
convertible display is perfectly suitable for casual gaming or even mildly competitive gameplay. Additionally, its touchscreen technology offers remarkable responsiveness that you’ll appreciate as you enjoy your favourite games. The HP Stylus, which attaches magnetically to the right side of the chassis and transforms into a highly functional tablet thanks to its durable hinge, is included with purchase.

Performance

The HP Elitebook X360 1040 G9 houses an impressive low-power Intel Core i5-1235U CPU with two performance cores and eight efficiency core, running at a speed of 3.3–4.4GHz. Paired alongside 8GB DDR5-4800 RAM for blazing fast performance and 256GB hard drive for ample storage capacity – this laptop is one to be reckoned with! This combination of features yielded an impressive 5,294 in the PCMark 10 test, much higher than the other convertible laptops from HP. This is a remarkable score for an ultraportable and assures that the HP Elitebook X360 will be able to handle any kind of office work effortlessly and even some more demanding tasks with ease.

Portability

The HP Elitebook X360 is carefully and thoughtfully constructed, making it more than capable of
withstanding the trials of travel than its other HP counterparts. It has a lightweight form factor at 1.48KG while the power brick adds an extra 320g to its overall weight – still keeping portability in check! We tested the battery life and found that it lasted up to 10 hours and 54 minutes – more than enough time for a full day outside the office. This performance is exactly what we expect from ultraportables of this type.

Connectivity

On the left side of this laptop are two USB-C 4 ports with Thunderbolt 4 capabilities, an HDMI 2.0
port, and a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port, as well as a SecurityCard reader for added peace of mind. To the
right is an additional USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port in addition to an audio jack and an optional 5G microsSIM slot (which can be downgraded to save money). Enjoy the ultimate connectivity with this laptop’s Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, a first for its kind! This cutting-edge combination promises maximum reliability, enhanced user experience and superior encryption technology – an extraordinary complement to any tech setup.
