HP EliteBook 1040 G3 Specs
The 1040 G3’s 14-inch full-HD (1920 x 1080) screen wowed me with rich, lush colors. The pageantry of the early scenes of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire looked great, from the greens of the grassy estate lawns to the orange sparks of Katniss’ costume at the start of the games.
With a display that averages 264 nits of brightness, the 1040 G3 is brighter than the thin-and-light laptop category with average for brightness (238 nits). It also boasts an ultra-wide viewing angle screen.
Its aluminum-alloy lid prominently features HP’s logo, also seen on the bezel below the display. When you open the 1040 G3, you see a wide speaker on the deck, with the webcam and microphones above.
With only 1.44 mm of travel and keys that are on the softer and less-clicky side, typing wasn’t that enjoyable . Using the 10 FastFingers typing test, I averaged only 60 words per minute, which is well short of my desktop average score of 67 wpm.
The 1040 G3 has three keys – Power, Airplane Mode and Mute – separated from the rest of the keyboard, and they’re very easy to spot and access.
The left side of the 1040 G3 features one USB 3.0 port, a microSD card slot and a Kensington lock slot.
On the right side is a second USB 3.0 port, a DisplayPort 1.2 port and a headphone/microphone combo jack. . The 1040’s 720p HD webcam enables you to make video chats with friends and relatives wherever they are.
