Cool gear for your office

Cool gear for your office

The average American spends roughly a third of their waking hours at work during their career.[1] So it’s no surprise that many of our office devices function as much more than just productivity tools. They’re part of our professional identities. And just as we often have both professional and personal personas, our devices can do double duty in after-work activities.
Far from being a distraction, the dual-purpose device can actually be a net positive for your work. People who are more expressive at work actually have greater working memory performance than persons low in expressivity, allowing them to focus their attention and resist distraction.[2] So the next time you’re in the market for a new device, consider some of the playful, and productive, options below.

For Collaborators / Cinephiles

  • Collaborators: If you regularly present, collaborate, or create with coworkers or customers, you know how tough it can be to gather around a traditional monitor. Curved displays offer ultra-wide viewing angles that allow for an enhanced field of view—from practically any position—while maintaining consistent color and image clarity.
  • Cinephiles: Curved monitors also help create a more immersive viewing experience, with enhanced peripheral readability, so you can enjoy an experience that’s closer to the theater. And because this is a new category of displays, they often feature impressive refresh rates that can help minimize blur during action sequences.

For Performers / Padawans

  • Performers: Feel the full power of the force. A Full HD Display[3], Intel® Core™ processor[4], NVIDIA GeForce Graphics, up to 12GB of memory, and Audio by B&O PLAY offer office-ready capabilities.
  • Padawans: Go ahead, explore the dark side. Besides the red backlit keyboard and battle-scarred, Star Wars inspired design, this special edition notebook comes preloaded with rare wallpapers, screen savers, concept art, and original trilogy storyboards from the Star Wars™ archives.

For the Security-conscious / Space-conscious

  • Security-conscious: Sleek, compact PCs have been an important part of consumer devices for a long time. Now there are a number of business class options that combine compact form factors with out-of-the-box, enterprise-class security.
  • Space-conscious: Overcrowded desk? Wall-mounting doesn’t have to be just for your TV. Many of these compact PCs are also VESA-compatible. That means that with optional accessories they can fit on the wall, under the desk, or wherever is most unobtrusive.

For Creatives / Makers

  • Creatives: New creative interfaces can be great for business—as long as they don’t break the IT budget. Devices like Sprout by HP are more than just 3D scanners, they’re also high-performance computers, so they can easily fit into existing budgets as desktop replacements.
  • Crafters: 3D Capture functionality makes it fast and easy to create high resolution, full color 3D digital models that you can manipulate and 3D print on compatible devices. Click here to see how others are using this new 3D functionality in their own projects and get inspired.

For Managers / Minimalists

  • Managers: Despite its convenience, wireless printing has sometimes been avoided in offices due to security concerns. New options like Wi-Fi Direct allow for wireless printing without giving access to the company network, helping you keep your data secure.
  • Minimalists: There’s little more unsightly than a nest of wires. Wireless printing helps eliminate the clutter—and provides more options for where you put the printer—so you can keep your office environment tidy.
Just like your own professional and personal personas, office technology doesn’t always have to be an either/or proposition. The devices above are just a few of the options that go beyond office-beige while still packing a powerful business punch.
