HP's Elites

Summer updates to the line include the three laptops -- 1030 G3, 1013 x2 G3 and the new 15-inch 1050 G1 -- the S14 portable display and the EliteOne 1000 G2.

HP EliteBook 1050 G1

The only addition to the line is the 15-inch 1050 G2; the flagship thin-and-light business line didn't have a model for people who need more screen. If the design looks familiar, that's because it's extremely similar to the Spectre x360 announced earlier this year.

HP EliteBook 1050 power

HP fits a full set of connectors in plus vents on both sides. The extra vents are necessary because the 1050 incorporates an Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU and up to 32GB RAM

HP EliteBook 1050 keyboard

Oddly, the Spectre 15-inch model has a much bigger keyboard, with a full numeric keypad on the right side. I'd expect a business system to have that, too. The 1050's speaker grille and location are the same.

HP introduced its webcam shutter -- a switch that blocks the camera when not in use -- to its EliteBook line earlier this year.

HP EliteBook x360 1030 updates

Updates to this convertible include eighth-generation Core i processors; the brighter displays that HP rolled out across the entire line; faster Cat 9 LTE wireless support; and a proximity alert for the Active Pen, which notifies you when you leave its geofenced range.

HP EliteBook x2 1013

The x2 received some design tweaks this go-round, including squared edges and thinner display bezels, which really does give it a sleeker look and allows HP to up the screen size from 12.3 to 13 inches.

The x2 gets the higher-brightness display options that have been introduced across the entire EliteBook line, intended to help with outdoor viewing. There's also a SureView privacy screen option.

HP EliteDisplay S14

This rather old display finally gets the dust brushed off with a more modern look -- squared edges and thinner bezels help make it a little smaller -- and support for USB-C.

HP EliteDisplay S14 resolution

Now the resolution goes up to a standard 1,920x1,080 so you can better use it to watch HD content.

HP EliteDisplay S14 power

However, it consumes more power -- 5 watts typically compared with 4 watts for the earlier model, and 15 watts maximum, compared to 7 watts. That doesn't matter if you're plugged in, but it might when you're working on the road. It's brighter than before, too, but still a disappointing 250 nits.

Instead of the charging pad on the base of the Envy, though, you get the collaboration controls and it retains the up-driving speakers of the previous models. And you can still swap bases and displays for improved upgradeability and hand-me-down-ability.
