As HP, we are not only drive this new trend but also create new categories and reinvents technologies.”
Luxury is also important for business life
The workforce, and the way we work, is changing. In recent years, there have been several dynamic shifts in what we expect from our technology as well as the way in which we are now using it. According to a research conducted by Redshift, more than two thirds (69%) of IT decision makers feel that PC design is important to enable mobility while over three quarters (77%) of IT decision makers think that a well-designed work PC would increase job satisfaction.
In addition, experts say this has been driven by a changing society where millennials are expected to represent almost 50% of the workforce by 2020. These millennials are already accustomed to using laptops and tablets in the classroom and in their free time before joining the workforce. For this reason they are less willing to make a trade off when it comes to device design and functionality at work.
Besides, work is also increasingly being done remotely and from multiple locations with the lines between work life and personal life blurring: becoming synonymous as ‘one-life’. Work is no longer a place we go, but something we do. To support this lifestyle, users demand thin and light devices with all-day battery life.
Increasingly, consumers are capturing content in 4K resolution and want technology that can handle this raw footage. They want large, high resolution displays that allow them to edit photos and videos but also to experience immersive video in their down-time. Premium audio should enrich the viewing experience when playing games, listening to music or watching a movie.
To address these market shifts, HP has reinvented devices that create personal and work pride, allow experiences that help us to do better.
HP showed its approach at the New York Times International Luxury Conference, in the previous days. HP brought to life the premium PC experience with world-renowned designers Tord Boontje and Jess Hannah, unveiling two distinct, limited edition notebooks that encapsulate luxury with texture, diamonds and 18k gold. A limited number of devices from each designer will be auctioned at the Cannes Film Festival in May with the proceeds going to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
