HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3

 

Business convertibles don't come any better than the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, an executive 2-in-1 that combines ample power with a sunny 13.3-inch screen and a snappy keyboard in a petite 2.76-pound package.

Wonderfully compact and light. Three screen choices: bright 1080p, privacy-filter 1080p, and 4K. Crisp keyboard. Good array of ports, including two Thunderbolt 3. Marathon battery life. Impressive audio.

No SD card slot. Clumsy cursor-arrow keys.

Bottom Line: Business convertibles don't come any better than the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, an executive 2-in-1 that combines ample power with a sunny 13.3-inch screen and a snappy keyboard in a petite 2.76-pound package.

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 (i5-8250U. FHD) Convertible Review

 

Spectre in disguse. The latest model in the super-sleek EliteBook x360 series manages to be even smaller than last year's model. A few features had to be cut, but we think it's well worth the sacrifice for on-the-go business users.

great sound quality for the size; loud speakers ; small footprint; portable and lightweight ; proprietary multi-layer security features ; keyboard keys have great feedback ; optional 4G LTE and NFC ; Thunderbolt 3 support ; excellent build quality ;...

warmer surfaces than on the EliteBook x360 1030 G2 ; pulse-width modulation on lower brightness levels ; not as rigid as the thicker EliteBook 830 series ; unable to sustain maximum CPU Turbo Boost ; lower performance when on battery power ;...

The EliteBook x360 1030 G3 directly addresses our biggest complaint about the 1030 G2: the dim display. Our 1030 G3 unit is about 75 percent brighter than the 1030 G2 and that doesn't even include the 700-nit option. Combine this with the smaller...

HP Elitebook X360 G3

 

This is HP's 13.3” Windows 10 convertible laptop business counterpart to HP's Spectre x360. The design and premium styling are very similar to the early 2018 Spectre x360, but the business model gets a few perks like optional 4G LTE Advanced, several...

Kort testrapport HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 (i5-8250U. FHD) Convertible

 

Spectre in vermomming. Het nieuwste model in de super-strakke EliteBook x360-serie is nog slanker dan het model van vorig jaar. Een paar features zijn wegbezuinigd, maar we denken dat die offering het waard is voor de mobiele zakelijke gebruiker.

fantastische geluidskwaliteit voor het formaat; luide luidsprekers ; kleine omvang; draagbaar en lichtgewicht ; beschermde multi-laags beveiligingsfeatures ; toetsen met fantastische feedback ; optioneel 4G LTE en NFC ; Thunderbolt 3 ondersteuning ;...

warmere oppervlakten dan de EliteBook x360 1030 G2 ; PWM bij lagere helderheidsniveaus ; niet zo stevig als de dikkere EliteBook 830-serie ; onmogelijk om de maximale CPU Turbo Boost vast te houden ; lagere prestaties bij gebruik op accu ; onderhoud...

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier. De prijs is bijna twee keer zo hoog als een Ultrabook zonder veel verschil in prestaties van de CPU of RAM. Al het extra geld gaat naar een lange lijs...

Recensione di HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 (i5-8250U. FHD) Convertibile

 

Spectre in crisi. L' ultimo modello della serie super-sleek Elite360 riesce a essere ancora più piccolo rispetto al modello dell'anno precedente. Alcune caratteristiche sono state eliminate, ma pensiamo che valga ancora la pena, per utenti business...

Grande qualita' sonora, nonostante le ridotte dimensioni ; Piccolo, portabilissimo e leggero ; Caratteristiche di sicurezza multi-layer propietarie ; Buon feedback dei tasti della tastiera ; Opzioni per 4G LTE e NFC ; Supporto Thunderbolt 3 ;...

Superfici piu' calde rispetto al precedente EliteBook x360 1030 G2 ; PWM presente ai bassi livelli di luminosita' del display ; Non altrettanto rigido come la piu' spessa serie EliteBook 830 ; Non raggiunge le massime prestazioni CPU in Turbo Boost ;...

L'EliteBook x360 1030 G3 affronta direttamente la principale critica al precedente 1030 G2: il display scarsamente luminoso. La nostra unità 1030 G3 è circa il 75 percento più luminosa della 1030 G2, senza nemmeno contare l' opzione 700-nit. Tutto...

Ноутбук HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 (i5-8250U. FHD). Обзор от Notebookcheck

 

Скрытый бриллиант. Новейший EliteBook x360 стал еще компактнее по сравнению с прошлогодней моделью. Пару возможностей пришлось урезать, но в данном случае жертвы оправданы - в особенности для бизнес пользователей, которые постоянно в командировках или...

громкие и качественные динамики ; небольшие размеры, компактность, низкий вес ; фирменные технологии безопасности ; клавиши имеют достаточный ход и приятный отклик ; опциональные LTE и NFC модули ; Thunderbolt 3 ; высокое качество сборки ; порт USB...

нагрев корпуса выше, чем в предыдущей модели ; ШИМ ; не такой прочный, как EliteBook 830 ; процессор не способен долговременно удерживать максимальную частоту ; снижение производительности при автономной работе ; обслуживание усложнено ; небольшие...

EliteBook x360 1030 G3 исправил главнейший недостаток предыдущей модели - слабую яркость подсветки. В обновленном ноутбуке дисплей на 75% ярче - и это в младшей-то конфигурации с глянцевым 400 нит дисплеем.Учитывая уменьшившиеся габариты и рамки...

Breve Análise do Conversível HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 (i5-8250U, FHD)

 

Spectre disfarçado. O modelo mais recente da super elegante série EliteBook x360 consegue ser ainda menor que o modelo do ano passado. Alguns recursos tiveram que ser cortados, mas achamos que isso vale a pena e sacrifício para os usuários corporativos...

Ótima qualidade de som para o tamanho; alto-falantes potentes ; Formato pequeno; portável e leve ; Recursos de segurança de múltiplas camadas proprietárias ; As teclas têm uma ótima resposta ; 4G LTE e NFC opcionais ; Suporte para Thunderbolt 3 ;...

Superfícies mais quentes do que no EliteBook x360 1030 G2 ; Modulação de largura de pulso (PWM) em níveis de brilho mais baixos ; Não tão rígido quanto a série EliteBook 830 mais grossa ; Incapaz de manter o máximo do Turbo Boost da CPU ; Desempenho...

O EliteBook x360 1030 G3 aborda diretamente nossa maior reclamação sobre o 1030 G2: a tela escura. Nossa unidade 1030 G3 é cerca de 75% mais brilhante do que a 1030 G2 e isso nem inclui a opção de 700 nit. Combine isso com o formato menor e marcos mais...

Test HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 (i5-8250U. FHD) Convertible

 

Ein getarntes Spectre. Das neue Modell aus der schnittigen EliteBook-x360-Reihe ist noch einmal kleiner geworden, weshalb einige Features gestrichen wurden. Wir glauben jedoch, dass sich der Kompromiss für mobile Geschäftskunden auszahlt.

tolle Lautsprecher angesichts der Größe, hohe Maximallautstärke ; kompakte Stellfläche; mobil und leicht ; mehrere eingebaute Sicherheitsfunktionen ; Tastatur mit gutem Feedback ; 4G LTE und NFC optional ; Thunderbolt 3 ; exzellente Verarbeitung ;...

höhere Oberflächentemperaturen als beim EliteBook x360 1030 G2 ; PWM bei niedrigen Helligkeitsstufen ; nicht so stabil wie die dickere EliteBook-830-Serie ; maximaler CPU-Boost kann nicht aufrechterhalten werden ; geringere Leistung im Akkubetrieb ;...

Das EliteBook x360 1030 G3 beseitigt einen unserer größten Kritikpunkte am 1030 G2: das dunkle Display. Unser 1030 G3 ist etwa 75 % heller als das 1030 G2 und wir haben noch nicht einmal das Panel mit 700 cd/m² getestet. Im Hinblick auf die kleinere...
