ProDesk 400 G1 desktops, HP 200 G1 and 300 G1 laptops added
HP has unveiled a series of business-oriented desktops and laptops today. The HP ProDesk 400 G1 series desktop was shown, which offers expandable desktop PC options that are claimed meet everyday business needs with enough room to grow. Additionally, the HP 200 G1 and HP 300 G1 notebooks debuted, which both deliver what the company calls "essential, business-class features with a low price of entry."
The HP ProDesk 400 series offers a user their choice of the latest AMD or Intel processor technology, plus advanced graphics, in either a micro tower or small form factor case. The micro tower offers five drive bays and 10 external USB ports.
Business security on both the ProDes and HP G1 laptop series are handled by HP Client Security. The software integrates hardware-, software- and BIOS-based solutions into one tool that includes a self-encrypting hard drive and HP Trust Circles, which means that only the contacts users approve can access shared data files.
The HP 200 G1 laptop series starts at $399, and is equipped with either the Intel i3 Core processor or AMD Dual and Quad Core APU technologies. The HP 300 G1 boasts i5 processors, with better graphical options.
Pricing is not yet available on the HP ProDesk 400 series, or the HP 300 G1 laptop.
