Along with a new set of Spectre, gaming, and monitor announcements at CES 2019, HP is beefing up its workplace lineup with a couple of new Elite PCs and its first EliteDisplay with an integrated privacy screen. All three pack the standard array of security features HP is known for in the workplace, along with the company’s new third-generation Sure View privacy screens.
Leading the pack is the EliteBook x360 830 G5, which comes packed with Intel’s 8th Generation Core i3, i5, and i7 U-series processors, up to 32GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. The 13.3-inch 1080p display also packs an integrated Sure View privacy screen, which can shield your display from prying eyes with the touch of a button.
In addition to Sure View, the EliteBook x360 830 G5 bolsters its security with hardware-enforced self-healing BIOS, extra protections to guard against malware, ransomware, and viruses. A physical shutter also safeguards the webcam. Additionally, you can take advantage of Windows Hello thanks to an integrated IR webcam and a fingerprint sensor.
As for ports, HP has included two USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, an optional Smartcard reader, one HDMI 1.4b port, and one external Nano SIM slot for LTE connectivity.
The HP EliteBook x360 830 G5 is expected to launch in March with pricing to be set closer to availability.
If a desktop PC is more your style, HP has also introduced the EliteOne 800 G5, a 24-inch 1080p all-in-one that packs all of the same hardware-enforced security features as the EliteBook x360 830 G5, a Sure View screen, and a pop-up webcam with Windows Hello authentication.
In terms of specs, HP has packed in a range of Intel Core processors, up to 64GB of RAM, and up to 500GB of storage. Graphics options include integrated Intel UHD 630 graphics or AMD’s Radeon RX 560 as a discrete option.
Ports include one DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI, Ethernet, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, four USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, one USB Type-C port, and an optional SD card reader.
The EliteOne 800 G5 is expected to launch in June, with pricing to be revealed later.
Lastly, HP has announced its first 23.8-inch display with an integrated privacy screen, the EliteDisplay E243p. The sleek monitor can keep prying eyes from viewing your work via Sure View Gen 3. The monitor also works with HP’s Display Assistant, allowing you to section off partitions of the screen to keep your work separated in specific regions.
The display’s resolution comes in at 1080p running at 60Hz with a 14ms response time. Inputs tagging along include one DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 1.4, and one VGA. Rounding things out are three USB 3.0 ports (one upstream, two downstream).
The HP EliteDisplay E243p Sure View monitor is expected to launch in February for $380.
