HP EliteBook 1040 G4

 

The HP EliteBook 1040 G4 packs a lot of power, but it's costly compared with other ultraportable business laptops.

Full HD touch screen gets very bright. Comfortable keyboard has built-in Skype for Business controls. Core i7 delivers good computing performance. Long battery life.

Included software is glitchy. Pricey as configured.

Bottom Line: The HP EliteBook 1040 G4 packs a lot of power, but it's costly compared with other ultraportable business laptops.

HP Elitebook Folio 1040 G4 (FHD, 7820HQ) Laptop Review

beautiful metal chassis ; excellent heat management ; very long battery life ; powerful performance ; fast charging ; dual-Thunderbolt 3 ports w/ four PCIe lanes ; instant authentication (IR camera, fingerprint sensor)

terrible webcam ; a bit heavy for its class ; display brightness is uneven ; keyboard clatter can be loud ; sorely lacks option for dedicated GPU

The HP EliteBook 1040 G4 wraps powerful components in a beautiful chassis. The option for a quad-core 45 W CPU may be a boon for professionals in need of more power than is offered by the 15 W dual-core chips typically used in business notebooks. The...

HP EliteBook 1040 G4 review: A solid 14-inch workhorse with excellent battery life

 

HP Inc is now on to the fourth generation of its 14-inch Elitebook 1040 , a sure sign that the design is a winning formula worthy of regular refreshes. Back in 2014, I reviewed the first generation of this notebook, judging it "every inch a business...

Excellent battery life ; Bright IPS touch-screen ; Two USB-C/Thunderbolt and two USB 3.1 ports ; Useful Privacy Screen mode ; Multiple off-the-page configurations

Expensive, especially at the top end of the range ; No 8th generation Core processors yet ; No discrete GPU option
