3.5 / 5 stars - The HP EliteBook 1040 G3 is a highly portable business laptop loaded with security features, including an innovative display that makes it easy to keep prying eyes away from your sensitive business data. Review date: February 3, 2017 | Model: HP EliteBook 1040 G3
If you're already used to the annoyances of a removable privacy screen, then the HP EliteBook 1040 G3 is a fine solution. It's fast, durable, comfortable to use—a modern business laptop in every sense of the word. But if you or your workers aren't using privacy screens on a regular basis, the somewhat foggy display may elicit complaints, especially when the Sure View features are turned off. The Lenovo ThinkPad X260 remains our Editors' Choice for business ultraportable laptops because of its lower purchase price, appeal to general office workers who don't need instant-on screen security, and its superior battery endurance.
