HP unveils a host of work-from-home hardware

New notebooks and desktops, as well as a low-blue-light monitor, comprise hardware to boost the remote working experience

HP has introduced a swathe of new hardware designed to cater to workers working remotely, including additions to the EliteBook notebook and EliteOne series, as well as a mobile workstation and monitor.

With remote working having soared due to ongoing lockdown measures and set to continue after, the manufacturer has introduced several new notebooks including the EliteBook 805 series, EliteBook 800 G7 series, and the EliteBook x360 803 G7. 

The 805 series claims to be thinnest and lightest AMD-based mainstream business notebooks, while also offering the world’s longest battery life in an AMD machine The EliteBook x360 830 G7, meanwhile, is fitted with 4x4 LTE antennas.

This is in addition to the HP ZBook Firefly 14 and 15 mobile workstations, both smaller and lighter than preceding generations. These machines are designed to offer power in a compact chassis, while “HP Z predictive algorithms” designed to improve the experience.

The latest EliteDesk 800 series desktops, meanwhile, include upgraded casing with added flexibility and expandability, but the feature most likely to appeal to remote workers is a low-blue-light and anti-glare display. 

This line is spearheaded by the EliteOne 800 All-in-One G6 PC and comes in addition to the Collaboration All-in-One G6 with Zoom Rooms, a desktop with a dedicated Zoom Room appliance aimed at those who regularly engage in video conferencing.

The range includes the HP EliteDesk 800 G6 Desktop Mini PC, the HP EliteDesk 800 G6 Small Form Factor PC, and the EliteDesk 800 G6 Tower PC. 

Finally, HP claims its E-Series monitors are among the world’s first ergonomic monitors with always-on low-blue-light to prevent screen fatigue

The latest hardware releases have coincided with a number of companies revealing their thinking as society begins to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic. Mark Zuckerberg, for example, has revealed that approximately half of Facebook’s employees will be permanently working remotely within the next ten years.

This is in addition to OpenText, which has pledged to close half its offices post-pandemic, as well as Twitter, whose workers have been told they can choose to work from home permanently once coronavirus has subsided.

With a string of companies in the tech industry, as well as other sectors, expected to follow suit in the coming weeks and months, it’s in this context that HP hopes to gain the upper hand with its new hardware options.
