HP Inc. empowers 'One Life' with breakthrough computing solutions and designs

HP has unveiled its latest computing innovations to transform the mobile computing experience. The new lineup addresses customers’ needs for devices that take them through 'One Life', what HP calls the seamless convergence of work and life. Workplaces are no longer confined spaces but anywhere with an Internet connection, and workstyles involve more collaboration than ever before, the company observes.

“Millennials want the device they use to be stylish and stunning, and which gives them the freedom to create and express their aspirations. If they use the device for work, they also want to be sure that it is secure enough and lets them collaborate effortlessly,” said Lionel Chng, Managing Director, HP Inc. Singapore. “At HP, we are constantly pushing the envelope in design, productivity, security and entertainment to build innovative products for ‘One Life’, so our customers get an enhanced computing experience whether for work or play.”

The new products include: 

 HP Spectre - Crafted in a high gloss copper-accented CNC* machined aluminum chassis, the HP Spectre is also the world’s thinnest laptop1 – as thin as an AAA battery – but with full performance and up to nine-and-a-half hours of battery life. 

 HP EliteBook Folio - commercial-grade performance in a premium consumer notebook design. The thinnest and lightest business-class notebook HP has ever created, at only 12.4 mm and under 1 kg, the EliteBook Folio does not compromise on business-critical robustness, security and manageability. 

The Windows 10-based Elite x3 is smartphone sized but delivers desktop productivity when connected to a separate display.

 HP Elite x3 - the first built-for-business mobile device running Windows 10 that revolutionises the mobile computing experience. The HP Elite x3 bridges phablet, laptop and desktop use cases from a single computing device.

Rounding up HP’s new premium PC portfolio are:  

 The thinnest 14” business-class notebook2 - the HP EliteBook 1040 G3 – and the new HP EliteBook 800 G3 series – the next generation of HP’s best-selling business-class notebooks. 

 The HP EliteBook 1030 - Sitting right between the EliteBook Folio and EliteBook 1040 in HP’s premium business-class portfolio, the device is designed for users who require the versatility and mobility of a smaller notebook but would like a larger screen.
