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.
