New HP PCs Elevate Productivity for Business Users, IT Teams, & Creators

With more than half of worldwide employees working from home, employees and IT teams are adjusting to the new ways people collaborate and create – whether at home, in the office, or other remote locations. HP has announced new additions to its Personal Systems portfolio to help people stay connected, engaged, and productive.

The latest EliteBook 800 Series PCsZBook Firefly 14, and ZBook Firefly 15 feature new capabilities allowing business users, IT teams, and creators to:

  • Be productive anywhere. Stay connected and work virtually anywhere at the highest connection speeds possible with gigabit data rate Wi-Fi 6, 4G LTE or 5G. New AI-based noise reduction suppresses background noises and keyboard clicks during conference calls. HP QuickDrop helps users transfer photos, videos and files quickly and securely between an HP PC and phone.
  • Work with peace of mind. HP Elite PCs and HP Workstations are part of the world’s most secure and manageable PCs. Newly embedded Tile™ capability allows users (and IT) to easily locate the PCs whether nearby or far away. HPs new intrusion detection technology, HP Tamper Lock, locks your PC if it has been physically opened or compromised and notifies the user. Devices can be wiped down with common household cleaning wipes[ix] for easy sanitization and HP Easy Clean disables the touchscreen, keyboard, and clickpad at the touch of a button to clean without need of powering off. HP Sure View Reflect allows users to work discreetly, by showing a copper reflective finish when 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 and use ocean-bound plastics in the speaker enclosure, and the outer box packaging is 100% sustainably sourced.
