HP has unveiled several new products targeting small-to-medium business (SMB) customers, comprising a space-saving all-in-one for the desktop and a hybrid laptop with a 360-degree rotating screen for mobile workers.
Due to be available from the next quarter, the HP EliteOne 800 all-in-one and HP ProBook x360 310 deliver the flexibility and reliability that small businesses need, in sleek connected packages that employees want to use, the firm said. Both systems are designed for Windows 8.1.
The EliteOne 800 is a premier desktop computer integrated inside a 21.5in flat screen, offering Intel's 4th generation Core processors and either solid-state drive (SSD) or solid-state hybrid drive options to enable fast boot speeds at an affordable price, according to HP.
It offers the flexibility of optional stands or can be wall mounted using a VESA-compatible mounting. Rotation sensors automatically adjust the display to either portrait or landscape, depending on the orientation it is mounted in.
The EliteOne 800 will be available in the UK from April, starting at £850 with HP Client Security included.
Meanwhile, the HP ProBook x360 310 is a laptop with a 360-degree rotating 11.6in touchscreen, based on similar technology to that in HP's Pavilion x360 consumer laptop that the firm showed at MWC.
Like the Pavilion x360, the ProBook x360 310's durable hinge means that the screen can be folded over to convert the device to tablet mode. It also enables users to showcase presentations in stand or tent mode.
HP said that the ProBook x360 310 is available in a variety of configurations, including Intel Celeron or Pentium processors, SSD or hybrid drive or up to 750GB hard disk. Pricing will depend on the exact options customers specify, according to the firm.
