Many notebooks are labelled 'thin and light' when in fact they can be rather bulky and heavy. HP has managed to design the robust EliteBook Folio 1040 G3 from HP with a maximum thickness of 1.59cm and a starting weight of 1.49kg. That's both thin and light in our book, although you do pay a premium and you don't get all of the features a business user might require.
HP has produced an eye-catching notebook here. Housed in an attractive slate-grey chassis, the EliteBook Folio 1040 G3 is the thinnest EliteBook in HP's range, measuring 1.59cm at its thickest, tapering slightly at the back and more severely at the front. It's a system any executive should be happy to be seen with in a meeting.
With a 1.7GHz (2.70 GHz with Turbo Boost) Intel Core i5-6200U processor and 8GB of RAM, the EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 is responsive and speedy. Intel's integrated HD Graphics is perfectly capable of handling mainstream business workloads, and while the 256GB of SSD storage might seem on the sparse side, it's not out of line for a business ultrabook.
