HP updated its EliteBook line of premium laptops for business and enterprise customers in January. But the company is making room for one more model.
The new HP EliteBook 1030 is a 2.6 pound notebook with a 13.3 inch display in a body the size of a 12.2 inch laptop, an Intel Core M Skylake processor, and a starting price of $1249.
HP says this model rests in between the Elitebook Folio and the EliteBook 1040. It should be available for purchase starting later this month.
An entry-level model will have a Core M5-6Y54 processor, a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, and 128GB of solid state storage. But HP will also offer the notebook with up to a Core M7-6Y75 processor, up to 512GB of storage, up to a 3200 x 1800 pixel display, and up to 16GB of RAM.
The higher-resolution model also features a touchscreen.
Each model has an aluminum case that measures about 0.6 inches thick. The laptop has a fanless design.
Other features including a 40 Wh battery for up to 13 hours of battery life (40 percent more than you get from the EliteBook 1020), and Bang & Olufsen audio.
The laptop has two USB 3.0 ports, one USB Type-C port, HDMI and headset jacks, and a docking connector, a spill-resistant backlit keyboard and a fingerprint sensor.
The HP EliteBook 1030 measures 12.2″ x8.3″ x 0.62″.
