HP Unveils New PCs

HP recently announced updated lineup of desktops and laptops aimed at professionals and consumers coming this spring. Most feature AMD processors with some available with Intel chips.

Designed for small and medium-sized businesses, HP has expanded its AMD commercial portfolio with the addition of the HP ProBook 445R G6, HP ProBook 455R G6, and the HP ProDesk 405 G4 Desktop Mini.

Powered by 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen mobile processors, the HP ProBook 445R G6 and HP ProBook 455R G6 help professionals stay productive in the office and on the go. The new notebooks adopt the elegant design concept found across the HP EliteBook portfolio, featuring an ultra-slim aluminum chassis with crisp lines, clean edges and undergoes 19 MIL-STD tests for durability. The 180-degree hinge allows users to lay the devices flat, making it easier to share content and collaborate, while HP Noise Cancellation reduces background noise by up to 20dB, providing a robust audio and video conferencing experience.

The HP ProDesk 405 G4 Desktop Mini delivers the performance, expandability, and security that SMBs need in a compact and stylish design. The PC is the company’s first 400-series desktop mini, featuring a 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen PRO processor with built-in Radeon Vega graphics and can support up to three displays, serving a new market of customers who need a powerful system to create content coupled with the advanced security and manageability capabilities of the AMD processor.

Built with mobility in mind, the HP ENVY 13 Laptop features the latest Intel processors to power up to 19 hours of battery life (nearly a 41 percent improvement versus the previous generation). The new HP ENYY x360 13 features a powerful 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen processor and up to 14.5 hours of battery life in a convertible form factor. HP ENVY x360 15 offers versatility with either an AMD or the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processor, with up to 13 hours of battery life, a 28 percent top-bezel reduction versus the previous generation, and an optional AMOLED display for stunning colors and brightness for browsing or streaming video.

The HP ENVY 17 Laptop is built for performance with an 8th gen Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics for productivity, creativity, and entertainment. The 17-inch device offers a better screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience, thanks to the 45 percent top bezel reduction versus the previous generation.
