For small and medium-sized business owners, investing in new computers for employees can be an exhausting procedure. Because it’s essential that the PCs you deploy meet all of the demands of your business, cutting corners is not an option.
Instead, whether you have one employee or 100, you’ll want to ensure that the equipment you buy is future-proofed and stacked with the latest industry leading security features that will keep your data safe and your business running strong.
For all that and more, look no further than HP, a household name in home computing that’s looking to migrate its expertise into your office. The best part? For Presidents’ Day this year, HP is offering cutting-edge hardware at a discount of up to 55%.
This includes high-quality products like the ProBook 400 Series which start as low as $462 and ranges up to the 17.3-inch display on the HP ProBook 470 G5, which starts at only $799, and offers up to the latest 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and Nvidia GeForce 930MX graphics.
HP’s offers an exceptional catalog of business-class mobile PCs such as the ProBook 650 G3, currently discounted down to $599 from its usual $1,235 starting price. It features a 15.6-inch LED display and can be configured with up to a 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.
Then there’s the HP EliteBook 850 G4, part of the EliteBook 800 series, which can be had for $997 this Presidents’ Day. Normally priced $1,719, you can expect $722 in savings off the model sporting a 7th-gen Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and 500GB of HDD storage space.
The EliteBook Folio G1, meanwhile, is the world’s thinnest and lightest business-class laptop and winner of the CES Best Business Laptop award at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. It’s $999 at the time of writing, which is over a grand cheaper than its $2,234 sticker price.
At the same time, the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 – the company’s best seller – is on sale with a free upgrade from 128GB to 256GB of SSD storage. That’s an offer, mind you, that you’ll have to act quickly to take advantage of, as it’s only valid until February 28.
Affordable pricing isn’t where the benefits of buying an HP laptop start and end, however. Rather, all of the products we’ve listed here are as reliable as they are secure.
They’ve been MIL-STD 810G tested, meaning they’re able to reliably perform in a wide range of challenging environmental conditions including hot and cold temperatures, high humidity, plus they can survive shocks, drops, and even the ravages of dust.
And if something does go wrong, you can count on HP’s included 3-year limited-time warranty and optional extended protection plans to take care of any mishaps that happen to occur. HP’s EliteBooks and ProBook 600 series laptops can even be upgraded to ensure that they can meet tomorrow’s business needs as well as today’s.
Better yet, every business-class notebook from HP comes with comprehensive protection against malware and vulnerabilities at every level.
HP Sure Start Gen 3, for example, is an industry exclusive feature that delivers runtime intrusion detection and self-healing capabilities to protect your BIOS. Together with Windows 10 secure boot options and a virtual security mode, this offers the best protection from damage caused by malware.
Additionally, both the EliteBooks and the ProBooks come with HP WorkWise/PhoneWise proximity-based authentication. This feature automatically protects your PC by preventing system login and access to the ports by unauthorized users when you or your employees are away from the PC.
Another (optional) feature unique to HP laptops is “Sure View”, a built-in privacy filter, designed to thwart unwanted snooping or accidental exposure of confidential information to passersby, onlookers or other potential threats.
For all of these functions and more, HP’s Presidents’ Day sale prices on its EliteBook and ProBook laptops simply can’t be beat. What’s more, with the HP EliteBook G5s right around the corner – complete with a generous helping of enhancements to each of the aforementioned security features – this incredible selection is bound to get even better.
