Work, at your convenience
HP Malaysia’s latest products offer mobility to employees.
THE workspace is not as it was before so HP is hoping to take Malaysian companies forward with its Office Of The Future concept.
“We want to help our customers build a smart and conducive working environment that allows them to be more creative and productive,” said HP PPS Sales Sdn Bhd PC Category business director Frankie Chan.
He believes that businesses need to adapt to the new ways employees prefer to work as well as provide them the autonomy to take control of their work experiences. This he says can be achieved by providing employees the flexibility, mobility and security to choose how and where they want to work.
“Our new products let them work at their own convenience without compromising on work quality,” said Chan.
HP introduced the second generation HP Elite x2 1012 G2, a stylish 2-in-1 that Chan feels is ideal for today’s business.
The Elite x2 combines laptop performance with tablet mobility, and is 1.6cm thick when paired with the detachable Advanced Keyboard. It has a 12.3in touchscreen (2,736 x 1,824 pixels). The battery life is rated at 10 hours.
“Users can also suppress background noise, including keyboard clicks, with the HP Noise Cancellation software. So when you’re making a Skype call, even in a busy cafe, the person on the other side would not be distracted by the loud sounds in your environment. Only your voice would be clear to them,” said HP PPS Sales Sdn Bhd AsiaPacific Japan mobility specialist Andrew Yik.
The Elite x2 also has a 5-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash LED. For added security, there is also a fingerprint sensor (Left to right) Lee, Tan and Yik introducing HP’s Office Of The Future concept which provides employees with the flexibility, mobility and security to choose how and where they want to work. — YAP CHEE HONG/The Star

If tablets with detachable keyboards aren’t your type, then the EliteBook x360 1030 G2 would suit you fine. With a fully flexible hinge, the screen tilts all the way back, and supports tent and tablet modes. With CNC aluminium unibody frame, and diamond cut accents, the EliteBook x360 is sleek and weighs a minimum of 1.28kg. It has a 13.3in screen.
“This business convertible can take users seamlessly from work to personal life, from office to meetings with customers. You can do presentations, and use the optional stylus for an interactive session,” said HP PPS Sales Sdn Bhd commercial notebook market development manager Tan Moo Yoong.
To keep work secure from
prying eyes, users can install the HP Sure View integrated privacy screen.
“With just a touch of a button, the screen appears unreadable to those around you. It will only be visible to your eyes,” said Tan.
It’s powered by a seventh generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor with Intel HD Graphics 620.
Both devices have 16GB RAM and an internal storage that is expandable up to 1TB.
Introducing the HP Z Workstations, HP PPS Sales Sdn Bhd commercial desktop & displays market development manager Lee Kum Weng said that they are highly customisable, offering a range of features that can be mixed and matched to build ideal configurations.
“Users can choose to use
Windows 10 Pro or Windows 7,” said Lee on the ZBook Studio G3 mobile workstation.
It can be paired with an optional DreamColor UHD 4K or FHD touchscreen.
HP expects the Z2 Mini G3 workstation to be popular in the design and CAD market segments. It supports Intel Core i3, i5 and i7, in addition to Xeon processors. Nvidia Quadro M620 graphics is also available for demanding 3D work.
Up to six displays can be connected to it – four native displays and two additional ones via daisy chaining.
“The mini computer can be mounted behind the monitor, or set on top or under a desk. It is also designed for Vesa mounting,” said Lee.
