HP EliteBook x360 Is Thinnest Business 2-in-1 You Can Get

  • MORE

HP is bringing convertible laptops to work with its EliteBook x360, which the company announced at the CES tech trade show in Las Vegas. The new notebook comes with an Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU, an integrated Sure View privacy screen and a 13.3-inch display with up to 4K resolution.

The laptop will be available in late January, but HP has yet to announce a price. This isn't the first laptop to feature HP's Sure View technology, which serves as an integrated screen protector that makes the display hard to see at an angle, but it's now clear that the company will be integrating Sure View among several business models.

When we went hands-on with the device, we were impressed with just how thin it is. It’s a sleek 0.59 inches thick, which HP says is the thinnest laptop among business-class 2-in-1s. (Others in the consumer space, such as Acer’s Spin 7, are even thinner.) We also appreciated the conference-call specific buttons on the function row and a combination of USB Type-C and legacy ports.
