HP Inc. introduced new additions to its Personal Systems portfolio designed to help people stay productive – whether they continue working from home or prepare to return to the office.

More than ever, today’s workforce needs the right technology and tools to stay productive. Fifty per cent of remote workers report not having what’s needed to be efficient away from the office,[i] and with remote workers battling for bandwidth with family or roommates for endless video conference calls, slow networks are a top complaint.[ii] For IT decision makers, security is also an increasing concern with the number of remote devices outside the safety of the company network.

“As we experience a new normal that blurs reality between life and work, it’s clear that the PC is essential – allowing us to work, live, learn, collaborate, and create regardless of distance,” said Alex Cho, president, Personal Systems, HP Inc. “Today’s line-up of innovative products, our largest commercial product launch ever, including the next generation of Elite PCs and desktops, the world’s first ergonomic monitors with always-on low blue-light, and the world’s brightest 14-inch mobile workstation, along with dedicated services to improve remote employee experiences, reinforces HP’s commitment to equipping workers with the right tools, power, and performance for the ultimate work from home experience.”

Premium Commercial PCs Delivering New Types of Productivity

Today’s workforce needs the right technology that helps them be productive wherever they are working - PCs that reduce the background noises including slamming doors and barking dogs allowing your voice to come through loud and clear, better low-light and back lit options if you are working in various rooms around the house, and bright displays that are easy to see when working outside.

The latest HP EliteBooks are designed for superb connection and collaboration for powerful business resiliency. 5G or Gigabit Class 4G LTE[iii] makes it easy to get connected and get work done. The wide-angle camera with an 88-degree field of view combined with AI-based audio that minimises background noises makes video conference experiences sharper and clearer. Tapered edges make the devices easier to open, the redesigned keyboard with rubber dome keys provides an extremely quiet typing experience, and the integrated webcam privacy shutters physically block the camera for immediate and worry-free privacy.
