It comes in a nice form factor, and while it lacks a &quot;wow&quot; factor, it&#39;s very practical and offers good performance for normal day-to-day productivity tools. With the release of Windows 10, I wanted to see if the Ultrabook would still stand its ground, or if there were any serious issues with the migration.</p> <p>First, it took Microsoft a while to actually offer me the free upgrade. While I could&#39;ve <a href="http://www.neowin.net/news/download-windows-10-isos">done it via the manual process</a>, for this test I preferred to wait for the official upgrade path. After a couple of weeks, Windows 10 was finally pushed down to the laptop and I was ready to upgrade.</p> <p>The process itself was straight forward and didn&#39;t take very long to complete. Once upgraded, I was happy to see that everything seemed to work fine: Sliding my finger across the fingerprint sensor immediately logged me in, and the ForcePad worked just as well as before the upgrade.</p> <p>It was then time for the real test: How does the performance of Windows 10 on the HP EliteBook 1020 compare to that of Windows 8.1? I fired up 3dMark to test gaming performance and find out.</p> <p><a href="http://www.neowin.net/news/hp-elitebook-1020-performance-windows-81-vs-windows-10">Read the complete article.</a></p> <p class="grey">This article is brought to you in partnership with Neowin.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/61865-neowin-hp-elitebook-1020-windows-10.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/61865-neowin-hp-elitebook-1020-windows-10.html'>http://www.techspot.com/news/61865-neowin-hp-elitebook-1020-windows-10.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]
