Computex 2019: HP reinvents PC experiences with HP Elite line, ZBook, HP ENVY Wood Series and more

At Computex in Taipei, Taiwan, HP introduced new additions to its Personal Systems portfolio targeted at enabling more intuitive experiences across work and life.

The Elite x2 G4 is the world’s first business detachable with a leather keyboard folio [1], integrated dual-camera privacy shutters and privacy screen [2]. Along with the EliteBook x360 1030 G4, and EliteBook x360 1040 G6, it redefines mobility with best-in-class battery life. In fact, the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G4 is the world’s smallest and lightest business convertible [3]. It also makes sure you stay connected with Gigabit Class 4G LTE [4], Wi-Fi 6 [5] and Bluetooth 5 and up to 24 hours of battery life.

The ZBook 15 G6, ZBook 17 G6 and VR Backpack give creators and designers powerful options. For architects, product developers and creative professionals who require high-performance computing and expandability, HP introduces powerful entry workstations – HP Z1 Entry Tower G5, HP Z2 Mini G4, HP Z2 Small Form Factor G4 and HP Z2 Tower G4.

The new HP Z2 Tower has been redesigned to provide two times the graphics power and 41 percent more processing power over the previous generation. This enables creators to confidently tackle complex workloads like rendering photo-realistic 3D models and scenes with full performance and whisper-quiet acoustics.

HP also brings some new designs with the world’s first convertible PCs made with authentic wood [6]: the HP ENVY 13, HP ENVY x360 13, HP ENVY x360 15 and the HP ENVY 17 Wood Series. They come with a choice of new, next-gen Intel Core processors or 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics [7].

Engineering the lowest starting pressure ever in a PC active pen makes it possible for natural handwriting on both the HP Elite x2 and full line of HP Elite convertibles with the optional HP Rechargeable Active Pen G3 to be the world’s most precise writing experience [8].

Looking for a desktop? The Mini-In-One 24 boasts the world’s most secure modular All in One with a display that fully encloses, secures and powers a 65W ultra-small form factor PC [9]. The Mini-In-One display pairs seamlessly with the new HP EliteDesk 800 G5 Desktop Mini PC to enable clean desk aesthetics and the security of an all-in-one experience.
