"Today, we are witnessing a process of rethinking of all aspects of the interaction between users and PCs, and HP is the leader of this evolution, — said Nikolai Nikolaev, Brand Manager of HP E & HP Inc. of Elcore Grup Distribution Moldova. If we are talking about printers, entrepreneurs need devices that take as little space as possible, produce prints of excellent quality and have the ability to print from smartphones.

The PC industry has changed, and corporate devices of the past no longer meet the needs of today's business. While offering its users incredibly thin devices and state-of-the-art security features, HP is completely changing the understanding of what a PC should be for business".

Nikolai presented new PCs, monitors, and accessories for business customers. HP EliteBook 800 series laptops, four new 4K monitors, HP ZBook 14u/15u mobile workstations, HP Thunderbolt™ Dock G2 docking station, as well as updates for a number of features for these PCs were among the new products.
