Designed for mobile professionals who require rugged systems for enhanced business and graphics performance in a managed IT environment, as well as security and manageability features, the 14" EliteBook 1040 G3 Notebook from HP is powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6600U Dual-Core processor and 8GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, allowing you to run multiple programs simultaneously and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When running more demanding programs or tasks, the processor can be boosted to achieve a speed of 3.4 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology.
The 14" SVA display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, LED backlighting, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and an anti-glare finish. Visuals are handled by the integrated Intel HD 520 chipset, and you can output video to an external display using the built-in HDMI port. Using the optional UltraSlim Docking Station, up to three displays are supported with a color depth of up to 32-bits per pixel.
For storage of your files, this system comes with a 256GB M.2 MLC SATA III SED SSD. While this SSD may not have the larger capacity of a traditional spinning hard drive, it can operate with faster data transfer speeds because it contains no moving parts. Additionally, its lack of moving parts also helps it to be more resistant to damage from bumps and drops. SSDs also receive less wear and tear because the drive has no read and write heads that the disk media can come into contact with.
If you want to add external storage, optical drives, mice, keyboards, printers, memory card readers, and more, the EliteBook 1040 G3 offers two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one USB 3.0 Type-C port, all of which double as charging ports. Dual integrated stereo speakers, a dual-microphone array, and a 720p webcam let you participate in video calls for work or with friends and family. Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet via an optional docking station for a more stable and reliable connection. Furthermore, to free up USB ports and reduce wire clutter, you can connect additional peripherals and devices using Bluetooth 4.2. A built-in 3-in-1 media card reader supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC formats.
The EliteBook 1040 G3 Notebook operates using an included 3.2' power cord and a 45W AC adapter that runs at 90-265 VAC and 47-63 Hz, as well as a 6-cell / 45.6Wh Lithium-ion polymer battery that will last for up to 11.5 hours before recharging is required. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included at no additional cost. Also included is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) recovery media and an HP Side Dock Adapter with RJ45 and VGA ports, as well as NFC capabilities. This system is protected by a limited 3-year parts and labor warranty.
