HP QuickWeb

If you travel a lot for business, you’ve likely done the mad dash to send off a last minute email just as you hear “The cabin door is now shut. Please turn off all electronic devices.” I personally have done a little “sync, sync, sync!!” chant myself now and again as I wait for the email to leave my Outbox (and avoid eye contact with the stewardess headed my way).


If you’ve found yourself in the same situation, or simply realized you needed to check something online after you’ve turned your PC off, HP QuickWeb is a great tool in your communications arsenal. This innovative technology lets you access the web in seconds, even when your notebook is shut down. The secret is that HP QuickWeb resides outside your notebook’s operating system, so there’s no need to wait for your system to boot. Simply push the HP QuickWeb button on your HP Business notebook PC and in seconds you’ll have a fast connection to the internet and access to websites and content through your browser. Shutting down your notebook is just as easy: either press the power button or simply close the application and your notebook powers off in seconds.



In addition to speedy web access, HP QuickWeb gives you fast access to e-mail, contacts and your calendar. Better still, you can personalize your view by picking from a selection of built-in applets, such as social media, news and other commonly used utilities. Just pick your widgets and drag them into your HP QuickWeb configuration screen.


When you first launch HP QuickWeb, you can choose your network connection type—Wi-Fi, LAN or mobile broadband—from the network configuration page. You can even set up multiple connection types. If you’re on the road and need to connect using a different network type, simply click the network icon in the top toolbar to bring up a list of available networks, then select the one you want.
