We’re a healthy way into day 2 of CES 2021 and HP has another handful of announcements. This time we’re looking at a handful of PCs for home and office. HP has been making PCs for a long while now and they continue to be one of the top PC manufacturers.
Like most of the other PC brands out there, HP is emphasizing the work from anywhere mindset by providing new devices that can fill that role. Here’s what the press release had to say about the new line and working from home:
We’ve learned that 53% of end-users prefer a hybrid work model between home and office, 1 and IT now estimates an average of 27% of the workforce will have a permanent hybrid work model.
These days, we’re also thinking about the home a bit differently – more like a design center for micro-mobility. With 47% of workers working from home right now, this presents many new challenges beyond simply competing for workspace and the reality is it can take up to 23 minutes to refocus on tasks at hand after a disruption.
2021 HP PCs For Home and Office
EliteBook 805 G8 PCs
Powered by AMD Ryzen™ PRO 5000 Series Mobile Processors and long battery life, the HP EliteBook 805 G8 PCs power work wherever it happens. Available with 13.3-, 14-, and 15.6-inch diagonal screens, these EliteBook 805 Series PCs feature new capabilities that allow employees and IT to:
- Be productive anywhere: Stay connected and work at high connection speeds with gigabit data rate Wi-Fi 6, and optional 4G LTE. Transfer photos, videos, and files quickly and securely between an HP PC and phone with HP QuickDrop. HP Sound Calibration tunes headphone audio to user preferences for an immersive sound experience and HP Dynamic Audio tunes output speech, music, and movies all while suppressing background noise.
- Work with peace of mind: HP Elite PCs are part of the world’s most secure and manageable PCs. HPs new intrusion detection technology, HP Tamper Lock, locks the PC if it has been physically opened or compromised. Wipe the devices with common household cleaning wipes for easy sanitization; and, disable the touchscreen, keyboard, and clickpad for cleaning without powering off with HP Easy Clean. HP Sure View Reflect lets the user work discreetly by showing a copper reflective finish when the screen is viewed from the side.
- Feel good about sustainably sourced materials: Driving support for more environmentally conscious products, the PCs are part of the world’s most sustainable PC portfolio, using ocean-bound plastics in the speaker enclosure, and the outer box packaging is 100% sustainably sourced.
