HP EliteBook x360 G2 unboxing and first impressions

Alongside a new version of the Spectre x360, HP announced the EliteBook x360 G2 at CES 2017. Like all of the company's products with the 'Elite' brand, it's made for businesses; however, unlike the Elite x3 Windows phone, this probably wouldn't be something that you'd buy as a consumer product.

The convertible laptop is offered with a Core i7 vPro chip, and choices of either a 1080p or 4K display. There's also an option of a Sure View display, which reduces 95% of visual light from the display if you're viewing it from more than 35 degrees from the center. The Sure View laptops aren't out yet, and they won't be available in the 4K models, but you can see some images of one in the gallery below.

Aside from a privacy display, there are a number of other security features that are built into the EliteBook x360. SureStart checks the BIOS against a master copy, and if it's been corrupted, it replaces it. There are two separate options for Windows Hello as well: fingerprint scanning and facial recognition.

Moreover, there's an app called HP WorkWise, which will allow your PC to lock when you move your phone a predetermined distance away from it. It can also give you alerts if someone tampers with the device, notify you when your PC is overheating, and even install printer devices. The app is only available for iOS and Android, so don't plan on installing it on your Elite x3.
