HP Increases Flexibility for SMBs with Affordable Two-in-one Notebook Built for Business
LAS VEGAS — HP today announced the HP Pro x2 410, an affordably priced business-focused two-in-one notebook offering the flexibility of a tablet and the productivity of a notebook—in one streamlined form factor.
HP further increased mobility options for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with the HP 350 G1 notebook, a completely new series that significantly increases employee productivity with a reliable and budget-friendly business notebook.
The workplace is no longer necessarily a physical place—it’s a part of life, and vice versa. SMBs and their employees recognize that a true work/life blend is the new normal and demand mobile products that allow them to stay connected in more places.
Today’s employees want options on how they interface with their technology, whether checking work emails over breakfast at home or chatting with family via webcam while on a business trip. A two-in-one notebook that’s built for business by HP provides them with a worry-free, durable device with a sense of style, while also keeping IT manager requirements in mind—budget-friendly, secure notebooks that are built to work, and last.
“Today’s technology has evolved to meet the realities of the new workplace, as the traditional work/life balance makes way for the more flexible work/life blend,” said Enrique Lores, senior vice president and general manager, Commercial PCs, HP. “The HP two-in-one notebook announced today gives employees the ability to quickly address the demands of both work and life with style, while SMBs decrease technology purchase and supports costs at the same time.”
