The world of business-targeted PCs remains a weird territory, but someone’s got to do it, right? HP has a few business-oriented laptop and desktop all-in-ones timed for CES 2014, none too tremendously exciting. The HP Slate 21 Pro is probably the most interesting: now, let's get to the rest.
The HP Pro x2 410 may look familiar: that's because it's similar to the quite good x2 line of laptop/tablet hybrids already on sale, this model adds an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor into an 11.6-inch Windows 8.1 laptop that can pop its top half into a tablet. It’s not a lightweight, though: 3.8 pounds, or 1.8 pounds just for the tablet.
Configurations include up to 256GB of SSD storage, and bells and whistles include Beats audio, TPM for encrypted data, and 2 megapixel front and rear-facing cameras. The HP Pro x2 410 is available now, starting at “$899 or less,” according to HP.
The HP ProOne 400 All-in-One G1 is aimed at small business, and comes in two sizes a 1080p 21.5-inch touch version for $799, and a 1,600x900 19.5-inch non-touch version for $649. Configurations come with fourth-gen Core i-series processors (Core i3, i5, i7), and ports include USB 3.0 and DisplayPort. The look? Well, it’s nothing to write home about.
Available only in “select countries” according to HP’s press release, the even more budget-targeted HP 205 AIO has an 18.5-inch non-touch 1,366x768 display and a dual-core AMD E1-2500 processor, starting at $449 with 64-bit Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu pre-installed.
And, aside from a few other small configurations, that's HP at CES 2014.
