With a price tag above $ 1,000, enterprise-class laptops offer quite generous specs. Nevertheless, the target audience is very demanding on the specifications and wants to get the most for the money paid. Among the mandatory requirements for machines of this class are high strength and quality of the case, the presence of modern safety technologies, advanced communication modules, as well as high performance along with low noise levels. In addition to all of the above, the business always wants an extended warranty and additional options.

Given the long periods of warranty service for such models, in our TOP-10 rating there may be laptops older than 12 months from the date of review.

1 – Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6

Last year Carbon was better than Yoga, but this time it’s the other way around.

In keeping with the tradition of the line, the high-quality gray aluminum casing as well as the good selection of ports and interfaces is evident. New features include a larger battery, better performance and configurations with 5G and 32GB of RAM. The most important improvement is the new 16:10 matte display, which is very well suited for a convertible laptop.

The most annoying drawbacks are increased heat and performance issues that are caused by not perfectly optimized platform settings in the BIOS. The keyboard is very good, but the predecessor had a better one.

We especially liked the comfortable keyboard, good connectivity, lightweight and durable magnesium (with carbon elements) chassis and, most importantly, the high-quality 13-inch display with a 16:10 ratio, which offers high brightness, accurate colors and 2560 x 1600 resolution.

It includes all the features of the Elite Dragonfly G2 plus an enhanced webcam, HP Sure View support and a new black color scheme.

In addition to features such as 5G, the model is characterized by very quiet cooling, a good keyboard and an excellent webcam.

Its biggest drawback is the Sure View display, which makes it difficult to use in tablet mode due to its narrow viewing angles.

 

But it is much lighter and made in the traditional black color. Aside from these details, it is nearly identical to the X1 Yoga G6, including a 16:10 display and a not-as-good keyboard as its predecessor.

Note that the X1 Carbon 2021 with FHD display fared better in our roundup, mainly due to significantly longer battery life, but there is also a version with a high-resolution display.

The disadvantages include the lack of a card reader, somewhat noisy cooling and a high display response time. However, the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G7 scores very well in our review.

Its main flaw is an outdated Intel processor.

HP tried to make a lighter version of the EliteBook 840 G8. By using magnesium instead of aluminum, the manufacturer was able to reduce the weight from 1.32 kg to 1.2 kg without noticeably compromising the strength and quality of the case.

Benefits include long battery life, low noise levels, convenient input devices, and very good upgradeability with two RAM slots. There are no major downsides, but we would like to see a 16:10 display in this model, or at least 4K or OLED options. The laptop could also benefit from a faster processor.
