At the recent CES 2023, HP Inc (NYSE: HPQ) announced new products and solutions designed to recharge hybrid experiences so people can thrive in today’s digital world.
Work Happy in an Environment as Productive as Your Home Setup
Hybrid work is here to stay. 92% of Filipino employees prefer a hybrid model, but being productive in a hybrid environment comes with challenges. Employees now need more efficient and productive workspaces – whether at home or in the office. This means companies need to cultivate an inclusive and innovative environment where everyone has access to tech that can keep up with today’s work demands. Just in time, HP is elevating all workspaces with new devices and solutions so employees can work safely, securely, and productively wherever their work takes them.
“It is our goal at HP to make hybrid work, work. Filipinos deserve to enjoy flexible work arrangements that will keep their productivity and the success of the company high. This is why we are working closely with our partners to deliver technology that enables businesses of all sizes to capture exciting opportunities for growth both today and in the future. I am happy to share that we’re bringing this exciting new portfolio in the Philippines soon,” shared Christian Reyes, the Philippines’ Managing Director of HP Inc.
Enhanced by HP Presence, the HP Dragonfly G4, HP EliteBook 1040 G10, and HP Elite x360 1040 G10 deliver more meaningful collaboration experiences with new intuitive video conferencing innovations to recharge hybrid work. This includes:
- Multi-Camera Experience supports dual video streams and camera switching so users can easily show their faces and an object or a whiteboard at the same time, picture-in-picture or side-by-side. The new commercial PCs are the world’s first business notebooks to support the simultaneous use of two cameras.
- Auto Camera Select uses intelligent face tracking to recognize which camera a user is facing to keep audiences engaged without breaking eye contact.
- HP Keystone Correction makes sharing a whiteboard or a physical document easy by automatically cropping and flattening images from the camera feed with a single click.
- HP Be Right Back20 lets users change their video feed to a still picture without disrupting meetings when they need a break.
As users move throughout the day, new features help intelligently optimize performance and power consumption, including:
- Intelligent Hibernate learns PC usage patterns, so the device will go into hibernation mode automatically to minimize battery usage at the end of the workday. Over time, the PC can eventually predict when a user typically uses the device the following day and convert to modern standby mode for an instant-on experience.
- Smart Sense optimizes PC thermal performance using AI to learn and adapt to PC usage patterns. The result is a quieter and cooler laptop that is more comfortable to work with while still delivering the power needed to get work done.
The newest HP Dragonfly and Elite 1000 Series PCs contain 90% recycled magnesium in the enclosure case, 5% ocean-bound plastics in the speaker enclosure, and bio-circular content such as used cooking oil to help lower CO2 emissions.1 All outer packing for the devices is 100% sustainably sourced,11 and are EPEAT® Gold Registered in 23 countries,10 ENERGY STAR® Certified, and TCO Certified.
Enriching a hybrid workspace at home or in the office is about having the right tools and technologies to reflect preferred workstyles. By using the right tools, employees can bring the best version of themselves to work, resulting in greater productivity and comfort throughout their workday. Completing the PC ecosystem, HP is announcing new monitors, accessories, and services.
With display sizes ranging from 21.5 to 44.5 inches diagonally, the HP E-Series G5 Monitors blend seamlessly into the home or office with sleek and elegant designs. The series offers a variety of choices to help hybrid workers stay focused and connected with 4K resolution on select models, curved and ultrawide screens, 99% sRGB, and matching accessories. Users can work comfortably with HP Eye Ease to reduce blue light exposure, and an Ambient Light Sensor automatically adjusts the screen brightness. The HP E45c G5 Monitor is the world’s first 45-inch super ultrawide dual QHD curved monitor for a more immersive experience. Replace two 24-inch QHD monitors with one massive 44.5-inch diagonal monitor with the new Virtual Dual Display feature. All monitors in this series feature 90% recycled and renewable materials, like coffee grounds and recycled aluminum.
For home workers, learners, and entertainment users, the HP M24h and M27h FHD Monitors upgrade home setups with improved ergonomics to find their perfect posture and viewing angle, so users always feel their best. It’s also the world’s first monitor series with a comfort setup guide through integrated display software.

Innovating in Sustainability with Unique Materials for HP’s New Consumer PCs
Since 2019, HP has used more than a billion pounds of recycled materials. Further expanding on the world’s most sustainable PC portfolio,4 the company is introducing new products and packaging at the forefront of enabling a more sustainable future.
Products designed for sustainability should be accessible to everyone, which is why HP is introducing highly innovative and unique products across its new consumer devices. The HP 14 and 15.6 inch Laptop PCs are available with either Intel or AMD Processors, and their beautifully compact design is made from ocean-bound plastics, post-consumer recycled plastics, as well as recycled metals.11 All of the new consumer notebooks are ENERGY STAR® certified and EPEAT® Silver Registered, with the Eco Edition version EPEAT Gold® Registered.10
The HP 24 and 27 inch All-In-One PCs also leverage unique materials to create the innovative frame, making these HP’s most sustainable all-in-one offering yet. This is the world’s first PC with recycled coffee grounds, which are used as speckles in the finish of the PC. More than 40% of this all-in-one’s enclosure contains post-consumer recycled plastics, 75% recycled aluminum is used on the arm stand, and 100% reclaimed polyester is used on the stand base. The all-in-one is ENERGY STAR® and EPEAT® Gold Registered. Its sustainability goes beyond the device itself: the 100% sustainably sourced and recyclable box packaging has been reduced in size by 62%, which allows up to 66% more units per pallet, reducing the CO2 footprint.
And for HP products, once you’re done with the device, HP Planet Partners helps to get them either reused or recycled.
