The devices give customers the freedom to create, express, and collaborate with peace of mind, as well as help transform workflows and improve operational efficiency.

Engineered for the way people work and live, HP’s new premium commercial notebooks HP EliteBook x360 1020 G2 and the HP EliteBook 1040 G4 enable greater productivity, inspiration, and exchange of ideas beyond the traditional four walls of the office.

These new devices combine phenomenal performance, enterprise-class security, collaboration features into ultra thin and light form factors, and are engineered for the harshest environments.
