Posted on January 24, 2022 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware, Windows 11 with 5 Comments

HP today announced new generations of its Elite and Pro commercial desktop PCs, Z Workstation desktop PCs, and Presence All-In-One (AIO) conferencing PC.

“Two years into the pandemic, and hybrid work continues to evolve,” HP Global Head of Commercial Systems and Display Solutions Andy Rhodes says. “With some people working at home and others returning to the office, dedicated desk users want PCs with breakthrough audio and video capabilities that enable them to collaborate, create, and focus without sacrificing performance. From office workers to creative professionals, the new HP All-in-One and desktop PCs alongside the entry Z desktop workstations provide the next-gen power and performance needed for users to succeed in all working environments.”

HP’s new AIOs are enhanced by a set of technologies called HP Presence that features 5 MP webcams with HP Auto Frame or an optional 16 MP binning (4 MP) camera for extreme lighting conditions, built-in microphones with Dynamic Voice Leveling and AI-based noise reduction, HP Run Quiet Design fan management, and full customization via the MyHP app. These PCs include:

    For me, the key criterion for such products is the maximum noise under load.

    The stock photography for these sort of things always makes me chuckle. That Picture is so laughably perfect its borderline offensive.
