HP brings premium features to mainstream business notebooks and mobile workstations. After spending some years improving its premium systems’ quality and design, today, the company announced new iterations of its mainstream 800-series EliteBooks, ZBook workstations, docks, and monitors.
HP brings premium features to mainstream systems after CES 2018 where the company released some great looking additions to its consumer PC portfolio. The single most interesting thing about the new iteration is that HP’s latest EliteBooks have a built-in webcam cover.
The personal computing and printing company has added its “premium design language,” to these new devices. The devices feature chiseled linear wedge profiles and sleek-looking anodized aluminum covers.
Additionally, for pretty design, these devices include some heavy-duty durability. You will find a MIL-STD-810G certification that you will never find on HP’s own consumer line or on Apple MacBook Pro.
The devices feature 10G a military standard which grasps the ability of the device to resist shock, vibration, and altitudes, blowing rain, humidity, high and low temperatures, fungus, exposure to dust and sand, salt fog, as well as “explosive” atmosphere. The new EliteBooks contains Windows Hello authentication with fingerprint and infrared facial recognition.
The EliteBook 830, 840, and 850 G5 will go on sale sometime this month and the pricing will start at, $1,049, $1,029, and $1,039, respectively.
HP is also introducing a couple of mobile workstations’ refreshed versions, the ZBook 14u G5 (14 inch) and ZBook 15u G5 (15 inch). They include up to 2TB of SSD storage, an integrated SD card reader, and use a Radeon Pro WX 3100 GPU.
