HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 (with Sure View)


As shown on the picture and implied with the name, the laptop is very flexible and can bend 360 degrees. Because of this, it can be used as a tablet by rotating it by 360 degrees. To support this , it will automatically switch to tablet mode. This mode is useful for when you are lazy as you can lie down when using it. It also does not heat up a lot, meaning that your lap is safe from burning, except for some cases when charging.


The laptop is also surprisingly fast with a core i5, in fact, it is faster than some core i7s. To prove my point, it can run ‘Overwatch’, a game with a high demand on specs, with barely any lag. It also has Windows 10 and is quite light, making it very portable. It has 2 usb ports, 1 usb type-c and the changer port is on the right. Touchscreen is also included, as expected with a laptop that can function as a tablet.


However, it has a smaller screen, so most web pages cannot be fully shown. This is usually not annoying as there is barely any content at the right most of the screen. But when it is, it can be very annoying, luckily, it can be solved by simply changing the zoom size on chrome, or changing the screen resolution to 80%, which, on the other hand, might be more annoying than before. It is also quite expensive at $2,800 SGD


I think that this is a very good laptop, but the price is a bit too much and you can probably get a better laptop with that price, for example, one with a core i7 and bigger screen.
