HP EliteBook 1040 G9 finally arrives on our shores

First announced at CES 2022, the HP EliteBook 1040 G9 has arrived in Singapore. As one of HP’s more popular business notebooks, it has received a number of upgrades under the hood to make it work well in any work environment.

HP says the HP EliteBook 1040 G9 has been redesigned for hybrid work, with the device featuring a thin and light chassis less than 20mm thick and weighing just 1.18kg. Intel Evo certification is included, as well as Intel’s 12th generation core i5 processor and support for up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM and 2TB of SSD storage. However, the model available here only has 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

The lowest model comes with a 14-inch WUXGA display (resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels) with a 16:10 aspect ratio and 250 nits of brightness. But the EliteBook 1040 G9 sold here has the display variant that goes up to 1,000 nits of brightness and includes an HP Sure View Reflect integrated privacy screen.

The 5MP camera uses HP Presence, so people can look and sound their best with the 940nm IR camera, and two microphones with audio software enhancements for clear speech.
