HP and Microsoft have effectively started with innovation. Both firms are making a deal that their new products are better to Apple counterparts. However, Apple is not giving much importance to PCs for quite some time now.
Recently, in the last week, there were interesting two product launches. HP came with a 2-in-1 PC, a clean state rethinking with the HP Folio and the next launch was from Microsoft unveiling its Surface Line.
Apple started with the PC launch revolution, but it is ironic and sad that the folks at Apple even cared for PCs. Nevertheless, HP and Microsoft, both are racing to offer the best alternatives to that Apple would attempt to make, if it has any concern about PCs innovation.
This PC innovation is an out-of-the-box product. It is a 2-in-1 that has presented Intel’s effort addressing iPad threat. The 2-in 1s issues are that most people use tablets as laptops. This is owing to their heavy and big appeal that it looked awkward as tablets.
People use large portfolios and they are mostly in leather, not in aluminum or steel. The leather portfolios are easy on the hand. Now about the new HP Folio:
The screen part allows you to fold it. It turns into a tablet, covers keyboard and you can watch a movie by moving the display forward conveniently even if your seat tables are shallow.
The 2-in-1 design of HP Folio is attractive, compact and a complete product. Hp has come with innovation as a break-through.
Original Surface from Microsoft was a tablet embracing the design of Apple iPad. It ran on Windows and not iOS. It was more of a PC but was not attractive with battery life.
Microsoft could not run Windows on ARM and that effort failed outright. The only interesting point was the magnetic connector used for power offering a safer approach. However, with time Intel improved the technology and introduced more compelling products.
The Surface Notebook and Book are MacBook competitors. They work better as notebook computers. The interesting products are the Surface Go and Surface Studio. The recent update was with Surface Go featuring:
The Surface Studio is interesting as a PC innovation. It is an all-in-one design updated offering more performance than any local workstation. An interesting choice for boys and girls!
