PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb.7, 2018 — HP Inc. today unveiled a range of new devices, displays and accessories designed for the modern workforce, including the rollout of several award-winning premium features to the best-selling HP EliteBook 800 series and HP ZBook 14u/15u mobile workstations. As the world’s most secure and manageable PCs and mobile workstations, these devices – along with the all-new HP Thunderbolt™ Dock G2 and expanded portfolio of four new HP 4K displays – will bring powerful innovation and premium experiences into the mainstream workforce.
“The game has changed and standard issued corporate devices of the past no longer meet the needs of the workforce of the future, particularly among Gen X to Gen Z professionals,” said Alex Cho, vice president and general manager, Commercial PCs, HP Inc. “Our latest EliteBook and ZBook offerings set new standards for design, performance, and functionality. Whether it’s the world’s thinnest devices or the industry’s most robust security features, HP is redefining the commercial PC experience for the modern workforce.”
Today’s modern workforce requires greater flexibility in where and how work gets done. Sixty-two percent of people work from more than one location9 and 81 percent work during their personal time,10 illustrating the need for devices that seamlessly connect any time, any place.
As boundaries around traditional workplaces are erased, security becomes even more important. Nearly 70 percent of organizations have reported compromised laptops in the past 24 months,11 demonstrating the need for robust security features that provide constant protection and resiliency in the event of an attack. At the same time, as workplaces become more collaborative, the need for innovative tools is on the rise. The PC is at the center of this shift, with laptops the most frequently used device for meetings and collaboration.12
Premium Design & Experiences
Today’s announced devices each feature HP’s premium design language previously only available on the HP EliteBook 1000 series, with chiseled linear wedge profiles and anodized aluminum covers for sleek and strong devices that can hold up to the challenges of the workday. A standout feature for users who work in multiple, diverse locations, the EliteBook 800 series is the world's first business notebook with an ultra-bright display that automatically adapts to changing light conditions,13 a feature also available on the ZBook 14u/15u.
Durability and sustainability go hand-in-hand as more businesses look to maximize their hardware investment and minimize their environmental impact. The EliteBook 800 series and the ZBook 14u/15u passed MIL-STD-810G testing14 and are more easily serviceable than previous generations. The ZBook 14u/15u have industry-leading durability in a thin and light 14 and 15-inch form factor, as they passed two additional MIL-STD tests for bench handling and crash hazard shock for unpredictable conditions in technical environments. The devices in this lineup are ENERGY STAR® certified and EPEAT® Gold15 registered, reflecting HP’s commitment to sustainability.
