  • Enterprise users need machines that are fast to power on, fast to restore, and run the business applications they need, quickly, on a machine that lives up to the business aesthetic. Chromebooks power on fast, restore fast, and can run Microsoft productivity apps through the Google Play store - but traditionally, they haven't looked professional, been well-equipped enough, or had a good enough screen. The education user isn't the same as the professional.

  • The c1030 has beveled edges that cut away from the flat sides, in order to make it appear thinner, and be easier to open and convert to tablet mode. The Front lip is cut for a finger recess to make it easy to open. The computer uses narrow border bezels, so that the beautful screen expands to the edges whether in tablet or laptop mode. The active USI pen feels like writing on paper. Damage-resistant design: The c1030 undergoes MIL-STD 810G testing and has Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a spill-resistant keyboard, and thermal controls to prevent damage from heat.

  • Easier to hold, easier to open: The trackpad is large and matches the screen ratio for easier navigation Voice-based commands: a microphone array listens for voice commands. Add items to To Do lists, set timers, play music, look up recipes, or a million other actions; it’s never been easier to find files, apps, and answers. On camera, on your terms: Webcam privacy switch shows when the camera is disabled.

  • The display is a 3:2 ratio for more vertical height, useful for productivity. The trackpad is 3:2 as well, to match. The trackpad has haptic feedback, the first ever in a chromebook. Chrome is not just about fast-power-on, it’s also about voice computing. 2x Edge mic on top edge of display, makes sure the computer hears the user correctly. * World's highest screen-to-body ratio (90.1%) in a Chromebook and with 3:2 FHD touchscreen • 75% recycled aluminum front cover and recycled materials on the keyboard, speaker and packaging • Easy to carry around - 16.1 mm height & 1300 g weight • Instantly block prying eyes by optional HP Sure View Reflect • Skip the passwords and enjoy fast unlock with the integrated fingerprint sensor • Physically blackscreen your webcam with the handy privacy switch on the side of the keyboard • Audio by Bang & Olufsen • Greater speed and stability on crowded networks with 2x2 ax wireless and HP Extended Range Wireless LAN • Connect with optional LTE • Intuitively take notes with the optional, high-performance USI active pen that can magnetically attach to your PC Recharges up to 90% within 90 minutes when the system is off or in standby mode
