HP EliteBook 1050 G1 Review | Trusted Reviews


The HP EliteBook 1050 G1 laptop boasts an excellent battery and privacy thanks to the SureView display filter. It falls down in other areas, though.

Fantastically good battery ; Solid performer ; Effective privacy screen filter

Expensive ; Excels at office work – but not much else

A powerful battery and a solid privacy feature make the EliteBook 1050 G1 a great choice for office work – but it’s found wanting for other tasks.

HP's updated EliteBooks are ready for summer sunshine


In addition to adding a new 15-inch EliteBook 1050 with a GTX 1050 option, the entire line is getting brighter displays to improve your view outdoors.

HP EliteBook 1050 G1 review: Brilliant, but not perfect


A powerhouse choice for businesses needing to equip execs with machines that can do anything

Well connected ; Great for gamers ; Brilliantly powerful

Fiddly keyboard ; Not the most portable ; Speakers could be improved

But let there be no doubt: this is an excellent business laptop. It’s powerful, it’s sleek and that battery life can’t be underestimated.

HP EliteBook 1050 G1 review: A reliable business all-rounder


Good looks complement loads of welcome business features

Numerous business features; Solid pace throughout; Screen with privacy mode; Ergonomically impressive; Great battery life

Rivals are a little quicker; Other laptops have better screens; A tad too heavy

The HP EliteBook 1050 G1 doesn’t quite have the panache or the screen quality of some of its rivals, but it does have more business features, better battery life and solid, consistent performance. It’s cheaper than its rivals, too, and it’s ideal for...

Kort testrapport HP EliteBook 1050 G1 (i7-8750H, 4K, GTX 1050 Max-Q) Laptop


Premium Business-Multimedia Combination. De XPS 15 van Dell krijgt veel aandacht die andere fabrikanten ook zouden willen krijgen. Natuurlijk wil HP ook graag concurreren met Dell's premium laptop. Daarom heeft HP een apparaat geïntroduceerd dat indruk...

Voor het volledige, Engelse testrapport, klik hier.Zeer goed is soms niet goed genoeg: de HP EliteBook 1050 G1 is een hoogwaardige zakelijke multimedia-notebook die echter inferieur is aan de Dell XPS 15 in het algemeen.

Le XPS 15 de Dell fait beaucoup parler de lui, et d'autres constructeurs aimeraient réussir à faire pareil. Bien sûr, HP en fait partie, et concurrence le portable premium de Dell. HP propose ainsi un appareil séduisant avec un châssis unibody, des...

Атрибут бизнес-элиты. Утонченный Dell XPS 15 получил завидную популярность, от которой не отказался бы ни один другой производитель. Конечно же, одной из самых смелых оказалась HP, явившая свету конкурента премиум-ноутбуку от Dell. Последняя новинка...
