The EliteBook x360 is a 2-in-1 with a petite, aluminum chassis lathered in a gray-silver hue. Its lid is home to a glossy HP logo and a two-tone line that runs across the lip.The sides of the laptop have a glossy sheen, while the hinge is stylishly cut outward and has an EliteBook logo in the center. When I folded it into tablet mode, I noticed that the lip of the laptop actually has magnets that connect to the underside, so working in tablet mode feels more comfortable and stable.
The EliteBook x360's thin design is light on ports, but it still has room for USB Type-A and an HDMI (wink wink, Apple).On the left side sits one USB 3.1 port with always-on charging, a headphone jack, the power button and a Nano SIM card slot.The right side has an HDMI 1.4 port, a security lock slot, two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a volume rocker.
Security and Durability
Don't let its attractive looks fool you -- the EliteBook x360 passed 12 MIL-STD-810G durability tests. That means it can withstand multiple drops from 30 inches, vibration, shock, high and low temperatures, temperature shock, dust, high altitude, humidity, sand, an explosive atmosphere and an entire freezing and thawing process. In other words, it's a complete badass.
For security, the EliteBook comes with options that include Intel vPro (remote management), a fingerprint reader, an IR camera (Windows Hello) and HP Sure View (a privacy panel). HP also includes a self-healing BIOS software dubbed Sure Start.
The EliteBook x360's 13.3-inch, 1080p BrightView screen is stunningly bright and covers a solid range of color, and the Sure View panel is even brighter. BrightView is basically a glossy display, while Sure View is a privacy panel that, when turned on, brightens the corners of your screen to prevent visual hacking, which means it needs to be brighter than a regular display.
I could spot every single wrinkle in Liam Neeson's face in the Cold Pursuit trailer, and when the camera turned to William Forsythe, his flowery shirt flushed the screen with bold blue and traces of green-and-red accents. Even when the man with a very particular set of skills was attempting to bury a body, I could clearly see the "Open Road" label on his van parked in the shadows. However, the display is incredibly glossy, so a lot of glare seeps through.
Keyboard, Touchpad and Stylus
You'll have no problem getting through your workday with the EliteBook x360. After continuously surfing the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the battery lasted 9 hours and 39 minutes, which is over an hour past the 8:36 premium laptop average. It beat the Yoga C930 (8:09) and the MacBook Pro (8:43) but couldn't get past the XPS 13's whopping 11:59.
The Sure View version of the EliteBook lasted 8 hours and 21 minutes with Sure View off and 6:46 with Sure View on.
The EliteBook x360 remained relatively cool under pressure on our heat tests. After streaming a 15-minute HD video, the underside measured 97 degrees Fahrenheit, which isn't far off from our 95-degree comfort threshold. The center of the keyboard and touchpad hit 96 and 83 degrees, respectively. However, it did get hotter on the center of the underside near the hinge, which climbed to 106 degrees.
The EliteBook x360's webcam was sharp when it came to identifying the layers of hair on my head but was soft and blurry when making out the corners of my nose.
