Today, HP announced new ChromeOS-based laptops to aid the paradigm shift from on-site to remote work. Portability and connectivity are the name of the game with these products:

  • The HP Pro c640 Chromebook Enterprise is the thinnest 14” business Chromebook on the market and is equipped with WiFi 6. 
  • The HP Elite c1030 Chromebook Enterprise has optional LTE connectivity.
  • The HP Chromebook Enterprise 14 G6 claims up to 13.5 hours of battery life with HP Fast Charge capabilities.
  • The HP mt22 Mobile Thin Client is purpose-built for VDI and has HP’s Extended Range Wireless LAN.

Security is important as well with these devices, with the HP Elite c1030 offering a privacy screen, and most models offering fingerprint scanners and webcam shutters. 

The HP Chromebooks are using ChromeOS for Enterprise. “The right tools are needed to enable remote work now more than ever. Delivering a secure employee experience that enables productivity, provides access to tools that inspire collaboration and allows IT to centrally and remotely manage devices is paramount,” said John Solomon, vice president, Chrome OS at Google. “With Chrome Enterprise, employees are immediately productive, and IT admins are able to efficiently deploy and manage a fleet securely at scale. We are pleased to work closely with HP to enable modern computing experiences through high quality HP Chromebook Enterprise devices that meet the needs of remote workers everywhere.”

In addition to ChromeOS, the HP mt22 Mobile Thin Client runs HP’s ThinPro OS, which is designed for cloud-centric solutions and virtual desktop infrastructure. HP is also offering this OS as a standalone bootable USB to turn any machine into a secure remote workstation.
