At the CES 2023, HP announced new products and solutions designed to recharge hybrid experiences so people can thrive in today’s digital world.
“Hybrid provides us with greater flexibility and freedom in our personal lives, but brings its own set of challenges for people to stay productive and connected to others,” said Alex Cho, President, Personal Systems, HP Inc. “HP is taking the headache out of hybrid by delivering powerful and best-in-class ecosystem experiences and industry-leading innovations – including the new HP Dragonfly Pro portfolio for freelancers, the Poly Voyager Free 60 Series Wireless Earbuds for exceptional audio experiences, and the HP E-Series monitors to help take productivity to the next level – while ensuring we continue to advance our world’s most sustainable PC portfolio.”
Powering Freelancers with HP Dragonfly Pro
The freelancer community continues to grow exponentially, and by 2027 freelancers will make up more than 50% of the total U.S. workforce. That’s why HP is bringing the power of its award-winning Dragonfly brand to freelancers wanting elevated experiences in their hybrid lives. This group of consumers want technology with the power they need for multitasking and heavy workloads, coupled with built-in support and services for peace of mind.
The new HP Dragonfly Pro portfolio helps reduce friction in users’ lives, and delivers experiences that matter most, including: powerful audio, camera and touchscreen; all-day battery life;6 and, 24/7 live concierge support and services for effortless productivity.
The Dragonfly Pro Chromebook is designed for individuals who are constantly connected to the internet, want an easy-to-use device with premium features and design, and consume a variety of content anywhere they go. This 14-inch device works to tackle it all to look your best, with the world’s first 8 MP user-facing camera in a clamshell Chromebook, along with the world’s brightest touchscreen display in a Chromebook so your content looks the best in a dark room or on a sunny day. It’s also Intel® Evo™ verified for fast performance, connectivity, and charging, and allows for seamless pairing between your phone and device.
The new HP Dragonfly Pro was co-engineered with AMD using the company’s adaptive platform management framework, which optimizes performance in real-world productivity scenarios. This is also the first HP device to feature one-touch access to HP 24/7 live concierge support directly via one of the device’s four hot keys. The Control Center hot key allows quick access to the device’s most common settings, a Camera hot key lets an individual easily adjust camera settings, and the fourth key can be customized by the individual to help optimize workflow or allow for simple navigation.
As freelancers work to find ways to adopt and incorporate sustainable practices in their work, both devices are EPEAT® Gold Registered in the U.S., leveraging recycled metals and plastics along with sustainably sourced and recyclable packaging.
Work Happy in an Environment as Productive as Your Home Setup
Hybrid work is here to stay. 77% of employees prefer a hybrid model, but being productive in a hybrid environment comes with challenges. Employees now have more efficient and productive workspaces at home. People want the best PC experiences wherever they work but are finding that most office environments aren’t as enticing with outdated technology, leading to employee frustration and productivity loss. With today’s news, HP is elevating all workspaces with new devices and solutions so employees can work safely, securely, and productively wherever their work takes them.
Enhanced by HP Presence, the HP Dragonfly G4, HP EliteBook 1040 G10, and HP Elite x360 1040 G10 deliver more meaningful collaboration experiences with new intuitive video conferencing innovations to recharge hybrid work. This includes:
- Multi-Camera Experience supports dual video streams and camera switching so users can easily show their faces and an object or a whiteboard at the same time, picture-in-picture, or side-by-side. The new commercial PCs are the world’s first business notebooks to support the simultaneous use of two cameras.
- Auto Camera Select uses intelligent face tracking to recognize which camera a user is facing to keep audiences engaged without breaking eye contact.
- HP Keystone Correction makes sharing a whiteboard or a physical document easy by automatically cropping and flattening images from the camera feed with a single click.
- HP Be Right Back lets users change their video feed to a still picture without disrupting meetings when they need a break.
As users move throughout the day, new features help intelligently optimize performance and power consumption, including:
- Intelligent Hibernate learns PC usage patterns, so the device will go into hibernation mode automatically to minimize battery usage at the end of the workday. Over time, the PC can eventually predict when a user typically uses the device the following day and convert to modern standby mode for an instant-on experience.
- Smart Sense optimizes PC thermal performance using AI to learn and adapt to PC usage patterns. The result is a quieter and cooler laptop that is more comfortable to work with while still delivering the power needed to get work done
The newest HP Dragonfly and Elite 1000 Series PCs contain 90% recycled magnesium in the enclosure case, 5% ocean-bound plastics in the speaker enclosure, and bio-circular content such as used cooking oil to help lower CO2 emissions. All outer packing for the devices is 100% sustainably sourced, and are EPEAT® Gold Registered in 23 countries,10 ENERGY STAR® Certified, and TCO Certified.
Enriching a hybrid workspace at home or in the office is about having the right tools and technologies to reflect preferred workstyles.

Innovating in Sustainability with Unique Materials for HP’s New Consumer PCs
Since 2019, HP has used more than a billion pounds of recycled materials. Further expanding on the world’s most sustainable PC portfolio,4 the company is introducing new products and packaging at the forefront of enabling a more sustainable future.
Products designed for sustainability should be accessible to everyone, which is why HP is introducing highly innovative and unique products across its new consumer devices. The HP 14 and 15.6 inch Laptop PCs are available with either Intel or AMD Processors, and their beautifully compact design is made from ocean-bound plastics, post-consumer recycled plastics, as well as recycled metals. The HP 14 inch Laptop PC – Eco Edition takes sustainability to the next level, with up to 25% of the product leveraging post-consumer recycled plastics. Bio-circular content such as used cooking oil was integrated in the bottom cover of the device and this device will also feature packaging that is 100% sustainably sourced and recyclable. All of the new consumer notebooks are ENERGY STAR® certified and EPEAT® Silver Registered, with the Eco Edition version EPEAT Gold® Registered.
The HP 24 and 27 inch All-In-One PCs also leverage unique materials to create the innovative frame, making these HP’s most sustainable all-in-one offering yet. This is the world’s first PC with recycled coffee grounds, which are used as speckles in the finish of the PC. More than 40% of this all-in-one’s enclosure contains post-consumer recycled plastics, 75% recycled aluminum is used on the arm stand, and 100% reclaimed polyester is used on the stand base. The all-in-one is ENERGY STAR® and EPEAT® Gold Registered.

And for HP products, once you’re done with the device, HP Planet Partners helps to get them either reused or recycled.
