In times like this, it’s more important than ever to stay connected as everyone remains home. We may not realise it, but technology plays such a crucial role in keeping ourselves occupied, especially now.
Technology needs to be more versatile than ever. We need it to help us with multitasking and to provide tools for both work and play, ensuring we stay engaged while at home.
In a recent study by HP, while millennials tend to use their smartphones more, a laptop is still essential to meet demands needed between work and play. Functionality aside, they also appreciate laptops that are capable of expressing their personal style.
To help adapt to staying at home, here are two HP devices that allow efficient use for work or play, with added functionality and unique designs.
HP’s Spectre x360 Convertible PC is the world’s smallest convertible, with a 90% screen to body ratio and weighs 1.33KG.
Its Envy 13 series, on the other hand, provides an ultra-sleek design, only being 14mm thin and weighs only 1.18kg.
Both laptops use a 10th-generation Intel Core Processor. Its more versatile in opening various tools simultaneously, granting usage of remote conferencing software, presentation slides and documents all at once.
With its long-lasting batteries, users can expect to perform various tasks, ranging from handling documents to watching their favourite shows for nearly a day. When the need arises, it can charge from 0-50% in about 45 minutes.
Unique to the Spectre x360 Convertible PC is the ability to switch between multiple modes, to cater for different needs. Users who have been using the laptop at a specific angle for long periods could change things up. For anyone with children, they could change the laptop’s mode to an appropriate viewing angle for learning or entertainment.
The Spectre x360 Convertible PC comes in an eye-catching Poseidon Blue, while the Envy 13 series comes in either Natural Silver or Envy Wood (crafted with genuine wood).
Both laptops come with HP BIOS recovery. Whenever the PC runs to initialise hardware and load the operating system, it will automatically detect if there’s corruption. If any is detected, it will help recover BIOS to its last saved version.
Most importantly, these laptops have security features that will put the user’s mind at ease. Features include a webcam kill switch, a fingerprint reader and an optional HP Sure View integrated privacy screen.
In addition, both these laptops come with the Microsoft Office pre-installed (worth RM529). The Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 is now available for all HP’s PCs powered by Intel Core i3 to i7 with AMD Ryzen processors.
Tailored to provide the best experience for both work and entertainment, the latest HP Spectre x360 and Envy 13 series provides all the necessary tools for everyone, whether working or learning from home.
In the coming weeks and months, people’s perception toward technology will undoubtedly shift, more so as they stay home. Not everyone is fortunate to have access to it, and not everyone is able to work from home. These are very tough times, and its effect will continue to impact everyone even after the MCO is lifted.
HP encourages everyone to keep learning, keep working, and most importantly, keep going.
