For many around the world, the global pandemic has caused a lasting shift to remote working. According to a recent survey by Upwork, one in four Americans will be working remotely in 2021. It is also projected that 36.2 million Americans will be working remotely by 2025, which means how we work and what technology we use is going to matter.
One of the most exciting computer and tech announcements to come out of 2020 came from HP with the introduction of two new laptops, the HP Elite Dragonfly G2 and the HP Elite Dragonfly Max, along with additional tech to make your 100% remote or hybrid workspaces even more productive. Let’s take a look at what makes these devices better optimized for remote working and managing a distributed workforce.
Designed for Videoconferencing
Among one of the biggest highlights of the Dragonfly series is that they have been specifically designed for collaboration. The HP Elite Dragonfly Max features a 5-megapixel camera with infrared and four wide-range microphones with AI-driven audio optimization.
Tech Note: HP also created the HP Elite Wireless Earbuds with adjustable noise cancellation, personalized audio tuning and sound situation presets allowing users to easily switch from conference calls to listening to music on a different device.
For those who are working in a hybrid or full-office environment and still needing to meet with coworkers or clients face to face, the Dragonfly features a 360 degree hinge design making for an incredibly seamless transition to a tablet for work on the go, or tent configuration, making presentations easier to facilitate while keeping socially distant .
Staying Secure and Private
A remote team can sometimes leave your organization vulnerable to cyberattacks. HP Dragonfly is blending security features into the sleek design with a fingerprint reader on the right edge of the keyboard. It integrate directly with the Windows Hello feature for quick and secure logins. In addition, Dragonfly also comes with HP Sure Sense to protect users from malware and cyberattacks with deep learning (DL) algorithms that can detect anomalies in the system’s behavior.
For even more privacy, the Dragonfly can be purchased with the HP Sure View Protect – restricting your screen from side angles that is easily toggled on and off.
Easy on the Eyes
We’re not just speaking to the sleek design of the new laptops. These also include HP Eye Ease which blocks blue light, making the transition from the workday to leisure time easier.
