Location is becoming unimportant for many businesses with many folks working on airplanes, cafes and even from home. Myself included!
Just last week, I was closing off an important document on the airplane back to Singapore. And then I was reviewing a video on the cab ride back to the office. And today, while waiting for my coffee, I flipped open my HP EliteBook mobile workstation to put some final touches to a presentation.
The same goes for SMB owners, especially if you’re meant to be out there making sales. Now, what if you’re on a tight IT budget? That doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the quality and usability of your tools-of-the-trade. Here’s a snapshot of HP’s EliteBook mobile technology that will keep you and your business nimble:
HP EliteBook Mobile Workstations are fit for users who need greater reliability and performance for graphics-intensive projects and mission-critical computing.
A few of the features that differentiate a workstation from a PC are ISV certifications to run the most demanding software applications and the inclusion of ECC memory, Intel Xeon processors and enhanced professional graphics.
While PCs are a fit for many mainstream business users, workstations are for those who need extra graphics and processing power to get the job done.
Each HP HP EliteBook Mobile Workstation is also put through rigorous testing that goes beyond regulatory and industry standards to ensure system durability and reliability.
HP understands what our customers need and this is why we continue to explore innovative ways of delivering solutions that matter to you. Inspired by aerospace craftsmanship and materials, HP EliteBook Mobile Workstations blend modern design and precision engineering that offers manageability, durability and performance. With a radial-brushed cover in its signature gunmetal color, these workstations also include an HP DuraCase to provide a high level of protection for internal components.
The HP EliteBook Mobile Workstations have the latest Intel architecture and second generation Intel Core™ i3/i5/i7 processors, providing increased processing performance over previous generations. The 8560w and 8760w models can be configured with up to 32GB of system memory, which enables users to work with larger project files and increase their overall productivity. In addition, the HP EliteBook Mobile Workstations feature the latest high performance mobile professional graphics solutions from AMD’s FirePro line and NVIDIA’s Quadro line, which are certified to run the most robust and demanding professional applications from top ISVs.
If you’re in the business of engineering, animation, photo and video editing, oil and gas or in financial services, you should consider using mobile workstations to run your critical applications.
An interesting use of HP EliteBook Mobile Workstations is in the creative industry. With workstation-caliber performance on mobile workstations, creative professionals can stay productive even when they are away from their office and churn out amazing works whenever an idea sparks.
For example, we see a lot of filmmakers using the EliteBook Mobile Workstations outfitted with our DreamColor display option on the set to capture and view scenes minutes after the director yells ‘cut’. Then, after a full day in the field shooting, they retire to a hotel suite and spend the night editing video, mixing audio, and sending rough cuts out for client approval. This saves them large amounts of time since they can begin the post production process in the field without having to go to a stationary editing bay that may not be anywhere close.
The Bandito Brothers is an awesome case in point. A high action commercial and film production company, the Bandito Brothers were powered by HP EliteBook Mobile Workstations to capture sports car races, military rescues and stunts, bringing action to both the small screen and the big screen.
