HP launches EliteBook x360 1040 G5, takes aim at Lenovo's ThinkPad Carbon X1

HP wants to win over commercial customers and is making a bet that its next-gen EliteBook x360 can win over users.


HP launched its next-generation EliteBook--a 2-in-1 business laptop called the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5--and is aiming directly at Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon and its customer base.

The latest EliteBook is part of a refresh of HP's premium hardware portfolio.

HP's focus on wooing Lenovo's ThinkPad base comes as IDC recently put Lenovo at the top of the market share heap. Alex Thatcher, director of commercial PCs at HP, said the commercial 1000 series is "where we invest to lead." Lenovo launched the ThinkPad Extreme X1 in August.

Perhaps the biggest takeaway with the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 is that the company built a 14-inch screen in a 13-inch chassis.

The HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 also has an outdoor viewable screen and up to 17-hour battery life. The device will be available in October starting at $1,499. On Amazon, the previous version of the EliteBook was marked down a week ago.



Key specs for the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 include:


  • 8th gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processors.
  • Up to 2TB of storage.
  • Up to 32GB memory.
  • Gigabit Class 4G LTE.
