HP EliteBook laptops are designed for practicality rather than advanced functionality
The company yesterday unveiled new updated models with some mandatory updates such as the 10th generation Intel Core processors and AMD Ryzen Pro 4000 series. Two laptops from this line are the ones that stand out the most: EliteBook x360 1030 G7 and 1040 G7. They fall into the category of convertible devices that can be used as laptops but also tablets promising 5G technology and battery life up to 29 hours according to the company.
