HP launches new lineup of notebooks

HP launched a lineup of new devices for its Spectre and Elite range of notebooks. With the introduction of this new line, the company claims to take the PC experiences towards next level by enabling creativity, connectivity and confidence.

“Traditional boundaries between personal and professional lives are blurring. People want technology that seamlessly adapts to the way they live and work, as well as devices that allow them to express who they are as individuals,” said Anne-Sophie Hadberg, GM and VP EMEA, Personal Systems, HP Inc. “Our latest Spectre and Elite innovations deliver an unmistakable sense of style, while also setting new standards for performance, connectivity, and security. From the world’s longest battery life in a quad-core convertible to the world’s smallest and lightest business convertible, HP continues to raise the bar for innovation that enables amazing new PC experiences.”
The beautifully redesigned HP Spectre x360 13 and HP Spectre x360 15 join the HP Spectre Folio – available later this month – to create a portfolio of new premium products that deliver superb design, security, performance.

Available in dark ash silver with copper luxe accents and the all-new poseidon blue with pale brass accents, the devices feature a gorgeous gem cut design that can only be achieved with aluminum CNC machining. Functional design is equally important, which is why the angled USB-C port is now placed in the faceted edge on the right side of the device for better cable management, and the dual chamfer design makes the lid easier to lift from three sides. The unique design of the speaker pattern is purposeful, with each hole micro-drilled for better acoustic transparency to deliver an amazing audio experience by Bang & Olufsen.

The new Spectre lineup is also equipped with leading security features. A privacy camera kill switch allows the user to electrically turn off the webcam when not in use. It comes equipped with optional HP Sure View , an integrated privacy screen to help users avoid prying eyes in public areas.

The devices are built to deliver an Always-On, Always-Connected PC experience. This includes long-lasting battery life, with up to 22.5 hours in the Spectre x360 13 – a 37 percent increase versus the previous generation – and up to 17.5 hours in the Spectre x360 15 . The optional gigabit-class 4G LTE on the 13-inch device  and ultra-fast Wi-Fi  with up to 1 gigabit download speeds  on both devices ensure connectivity from almost anywhere. Connected modern standby  ensures emails, calendars, and contacts are always up-to-date, and a wake-on fingerprint reader and wake-on voices enables full log-on almost instantaneously.

Both the Spectre x360 13 and Spectre x360 15 are designed for performance that matches each individual ‘s needs. HP Command Center is a proprietary solution with up to four modes to help customers optimize system performance, fan speeds, and thermal performance based on what applications are being used; change the fan speed to be quieter when watching a movie or adjust for more power to better handle demanding applications like photo editing.

While the Spectre x360 13 is designed for an on-the-go lifestyle with up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors, the Spectre x360 15 is the most powerful Spectre convertible laptop to date , delivering up to 20 percent more performance versus the previous generation. Ideal for those who immerse themselves in content creation, the 15-inch convertible features a new thermal design, up to the latest six-core 8th Gen Intel Core processors, and the optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti with Max Q design. In addition, the Spectre x360 15 offers various display options, including an optional 4K touch display  or up to 650-nit FHD display  – one of the brightest consumer panels in the industry – and up to two Thunderbolt 3 ports support dual 5K displays. Building on the heritage of the HP Elite Portfolio, the new HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 is an artfully crafted 14-inch diagonal convertible in a 13-inch form factor. Designed with a unibody CNC aluminium chassis  and an adonized finish, the device turns heads and is designed to pass rigorous MIL-STD testing .
Mobility for premium customers is a must, which is why the device features up to 17 hours of battery life, gigabit-class 4G LTE , the optional HP Outdoor Viewable Display with an anti-glare screen and up to 700-nit display, and optional HP Sure View  that works great indoors and outdoors. Regardless of whether a user is at their office desk or in the coffee shop, security threats are everywhere and a major factor in the PC purchasing process. The EliteBook x360 1040 and all Elite devices are the world’s most secure and manageable PCs  with HP’s hardware enforced security and unique features such as HP Sure Start Gen 4 , the world’s only self-healing BIOS, and HP Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging, which enables customers to restore their PC to a working state in minutes. In an always-connected world, the EliteBook x360 1040 offers optional gigabit-class 4G LTE, 8th Gen Intel Core processors, up to 32 GB of memory, and up to 2 TB of storage  – ensuring that the device is up for any small or large task.

Additionally, HP has two new solutions – designed with security in mind – to simplify connections and maximize productivity in the office. The new HP EliteDisplay E243d Docking Monitor offers a simpler and cleaner alternative to dock-and-monitor solutions with a single USB-A cable or single power-enabled USB-C cable for data and video, as well a pop-up privacy webcam. The new HP USB Fingerprint Mouse is perfect for users with dedicated PCs to unlock their Windows 10 PC with a single touch, allowing for secure biometric authentication that IT can deploy for access control to devices.
