The American company is introducing new models that can change their effective viewing angles in real time
If you have had the opportunity to work on your PC (or even use a tablet or phone) in a crowded public and public place, you probably know this strange feeling in which you find some anonymous passerby staring at what is displayed on your screen - an unpleasant experience, especially if the information The exhibit is personal or even sensitive in its classification.
This relative problem has become even more tangible and significant in recent years as screens IPS And VA with very wide viewing angles have become the new standard in most product categories, at the expense of TN technology panels whose built-in display limits have provided a sort of default solution (with almost every viewing angle above 45 degrees already approaching the point where colors are reversed and display is reversed One that doesn't get too much detail out of it).
Now, HP is turning a new privacy technology that meets Sure View into the main feature of a pair of computers Mobile Who belong to its EliteBook business line, and believe that this renewed wish for privacy will help them win improved commercial success.
An additional layer above the 3M screen panel, combined with technologies for the dedicated activation of the rear LED illumination on the screen, make it possible to change the effective viewing angle from a level of about 175 degrees (for high-quality wide viewing if desired) to a level of only about 35 degrees at the touch of a button. That all unwanted viewers from the sides will see an almost completely black screen, while the user will not notice the change and will be able to continue working as usual.
Beyond the embarrassing screens, which will be available in 1080p resolution and a diagonal size of 14 inches or 15.6 inches, you will find in the EliteBook 840 G3 and EliteBook 1040 G3 mobiles (screen sizes depending on the models) the Core-U processors from the Skylake generation, memory DDR4 Up to 32GB, 2.5-inch mechanical drives or drives SSD In 2.5-inch or M.2 format, built-in fingerprint scanners, modem option Mobile phones Built-in LTE, thin and relatively light metal envelopes - and a promise for my life battery Up to 13.5 hours for the EliteBook 840 or up to 11.5 hours for the EliteBook 1040.
The mobiles will arrive in stores starting in September, starting in two days and at a starting price of about $ 1,200, and while their Sure View technology is not an unprecedented revolution - this is a nice touch that may interest a significant audience of consumers working on the road, all the more so Based on the claim of HP That the increment to the overall cost (which has lied relatively well in advance in this case) is almost negligible. what do you think?
