HP Australia has announced a new range of business products, including desktop PCs, notebooks and accessories. We take a look at some of the new offerings, which were unveiled at the HP 2010: Elevate roadshow.

HP Mini 5102

HP has designed this mini notebook for mobile professionals. The HP Mini 5102 is a netbook with an Intel Atom N450 CPU and 2GB of RAM. It’s available with a standard 10in screen with a 1366x768 resolution, or with a touch-enabled screen. It weighs 1.2kg and has an anodized-aluminium lid and comes in black, red or blue brush finishes. The HP Mini 5102 and HP Mini 5102 Touch can now be purchased for $599 and $849, respectively.

HP TouchSmart 9100

Touted as the first touch-screen-equipped, all-in-one PC for business, the HP TouchSmart 9100 aims to engage customers with multitouch enabled applications. The HP TouchSmart 9100 features a 23in screen, an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 500GB of hard drive space. It can be used for video conferencing and other multimedia tasks. It’s priced from $1999.

HP Projection Companion

This new addition to HP’s range of notebook accessories is compatible with any laptop that has a VGA connection. It’s aimed at users who need an ultraportable but powerful projector when on the road, and is best used in small meetings. It measures 9.3x4.0x11.1cm, weights 420g, and its AC adapter is the same type as an HP notebook adapter. Retail price: $699.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
