HP’s new EliteBook 1000 series, which will go on sale in July, will be one of the first 5G-enabled PCs to use the Qualcomm SnapDragon X55 chip to support connectivity of less than 6. They are 6.3 percent smaller than their predecessors, and have a screen-to-body ratio of 89 percent, which HP calls the largest business notebook.
