HP’s latest breakthrough is coming to the Philippines with PC experiences for creating, collaborating, and connecting wherever you are

News Highlights:

The PC has never been more essential, so this year at CES 2021, HP Inc. is launching computing innovations essential to how and where people experience work and life. HP today unveiled new devices and solutions designed to power hybrid work environments and growing personal creative studios. What’s more, these innovations will be coming to the Philippines by the second half of the year.


“As we have all seen and personally experienced, the pandemic has accelerated the future of work to now, and we have been responding in many ways with the same goal of adapting and thriving amid this challenge. To jumpstart the year, I am excited to announce the new range of HP’s PC innovations designed to meet and complete the Filipino remote working needs of businesses today.”

Christian Edmond Reyes, Philippines Managing Director, HP Inc.

With half of the global workforce still working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic,[i] new use cases for the PC are emerging for both consumers and employees remaining at home. Since COVID, there has been a seven hour increase per week in time spent on personal PCs.[ii] In some cases, this has resulted in an increase in everyday creativity – with photography, writing stories or articles, and live streaming being the top three activities among consumers.[iii] But working and staying at home isn’t always simple, with only 30% of people having a space where they can shut the door.[iv] Yet 72% of knowledge workers want a hybrid remote-office model moving forward[v] and 48% of Gen Z are considering an expansion of their freelance business in the future,[vi] requiring solutions with enhanced collaboration and micro-mobility features.

“While the PC is more essential than ever, what’s most important of all is people. Our innovation engine continues to be grounded in deep customer insights that help keep people connected, engaged, and contributing in this new world,” said Alex Cho, president, Personal Systems, HP Inc. “We are looking beyond the device people use to what will improve their experience – from software that provides lighting control for video calls, peripherals that enable a more customized experience, to how services can make it easier to monitor and manage devices for a multitude of devices.”
