HP For Business!

Hello All,

I just watched the HP Chrome Enterprise presentation and I have to say that I really liked what I saw.

HP is releasing 3 new business Chromebooks over the next couple months, one of which is an Intel Project Athena 2-in-1, which will undoubtedly be the most expensive of the three devices HP announced today.

First up is the HP Chromebook 14 G6 Enterprise: This military grade device is great for those of us who deal with homes that need lots of love. It is durable, spill resistant, and in this time of working from home, essentially kid proof. It can have up to a full HD screen (no need for 4K in real estate, though I have to admit I love 4K), up to 8GB RAM and 128 GB hard drive, and has all the necessary ports including a card reader! It looks like it is only available with a Celeron processor, but for most of us that is all that is necessary for a good Chrome OS experience.

Next is the HP Pro c640 Chromebook Enterprise: This device is probably my favorite of the three devices HP unveiled today because it just hits the sweet spot. It comes with all the necessary ports including a card reader! You also have the option to have a touchscreen on this device as well and it has a full 180 degree hinge so it can lay flat for collaborative efforts, a nice touch for those who work in a team environment. For security minded people, this device has a camera shutter and the option to add a fingerprint reader. The data sheets are not up yet so I cannot comment on exact specs at this time, but from the presentation, this sure looks like it's going to be a great Chromebook. Oh, and as a bonus, it has Wi-Fi 6.

Lastly, the HP Elite c1030 Chromebook Enterprise: This is a premium 2-in-1 device that I feel is best suited for people in medium-to-large property management organizations as far as real estate goes. It is also USI-Pen compatible, so you can take notes on the go on your device and guess what, HP announced a new USI Pen today as a bonus! Back to the Elite, it has all the necessary ports including a card reader and like the Pro c640 it has WiFi 6 and the option to add a fingerprint reader. This device also has a built in privacy screen so for those who use co-working spaces as an office, this is ideal. The spec sheets are not up yet so I cannot comment on those, but it is indeed a Project Athena device which means it is going to be a premium device that may very well cost a premium.

So, the USI Pen... It can last 20 days on a charge and it charges via USB-C which is amazing. I'm not sure how many of us in real estate use USI Pens but the fact that HP made one available is great for those of us who do use USI Pens.

Well, that's all for now. I'm hoping that there will also be consumer versions of the Pro c640 and the Elitie c1030. Today was a big day for Enterprise Chromebooks, and for larger real estate organizations, these solutions can work really well for you.

Thanks for reading and until next time,

Dave

A new gem from HP

Hello All, HP has been on a roll lately, now coming out with a new flagship consumer Chromebook, the Chromebook x360 14c. There will be multiple variants of this Chromebook and it will be available both directly from HP and from Best Buy. At minimum, you get a Pentium 6405u processor with 4 GB of RAM and at the high end you get an Intel 10th Gen i5 with 8 GB of RAM. I am not too sure about hard drive specifications but the good news is that it does come with all the necessary ports including a card reader! It is also USI Pen compatible for those who like an e-signature to look like a wet signature. This is a 14" convertible machine with a touchscreen which should be the right mix of business and pleasure for most real estate professionals. By all accounts, the lowest spec Pentium model will start at $499 once it becomes available. I am personally very interested in this one and I may very well get one myself, though I've probably said that before on here and haven

Just Checking In

Hello, Just thought I'd check in. There is not a lot going on right now in terms of Chrome OS for Real Estate because of the recent events. I stand with the protesters and I have spoken at depth about this on my personal social media accounts, so I will not go into detail on that here other than to say that Black Lives Matter. Just wanted to make sure everyone was doing well. I hope have some news to post in the very near future in terms of Chrome OS for real estate. Until next time, Dave

Using Chromebooks for Training

Hello All, One thing Realtors and Brokers have to consistently do is train and earn CEUs (Continuing Education Units). The cool thing is that this can all be done completely online and since every online learning platform for Real Estate that I have encountered is completely web-based, that means you can do it on Chrome OS! A couple great places to get real estate training done online are: The CE Shop NAR Online Learning Center I am aware that there are other sites out there; I just personally have not used them yet so I am not going to recommend a site that I have not personally used yet. Another thing I might add is that we should not just be focused on what is just required in terms of CEUs, we should also be constantly learning about different types of technology and how they may help (or in some cases not help) how we conduct business in the Real Estate industry. Usually I have a little more to say than this, but with the current pandemic situation things have been a
