HP has unveiled its latest portfolio of HP ENVY notebooks. The HP ENVY15, with its minimalist design and powerful software and hardware features, will provide users with an unparalleled experience of versatility and mobility. In addition, HP has also introduced its latest Z by HP mobile workstations–The HP ZBook Studio and HP ZBook Create.
This line-up enables all levels of creators – including consumers, prosumers and professionals to capture, create, and bring to life digital concepts and ideas that can be shared, enjoyed, and experienced. In the past, creators had to choose between bulky devices to get the power they require for work and play. Today, HP is pushing the boundaries of engineering and creative productivity by allowing photographers, vloggers, graphic designers, architects, filmmakers, and everyone in between, to achieve what was never thought possible.
With a rich history of PC innovations for the creative community, HP is the ideal technology partner for the next generation of creators. For Gen Z creators, the practice of creativity is instinctual, and they need a device that helps bring their expressions to life as quickly as the latest memes and trending topics come and go. The HP ENVY portfolio, including the newest ENVY 15, is built for today’s consumers and prosumers who regularly edit photos and video, or develop graphics or web designs. For those who create professionally – from design, modelling, coding or application design – Z by HP solutions are perfect small form-factor powerhouse solutions for resource-intensive tasks.
Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems, HP India market, said, “A creator’s mind is never idle, always fueled with inspiration from the world around them. Creativity can strike anytime, anywhere. Yet lack of proper equipment can hold them back from achieving their true potential. With this in mind, we are introducing a creator’s powerhouse – the HP ENVY with seamless software integration, powerful performance, stunning display and long battery life built for today’s creative consumers and prosumers.”

Z by HP: Power Your Breakthrough
The HP ZBook Studio, the world’s smallest 15” laptop for creators and most powerful mobile workstation per cubic centimetre, while the HP ZBook Create, is the world’s smallest 15” notebook for creation and gaming, allows users to create on-the-go like never before. There has been a 47% growth in thin and light form factors over the past three years, but most devices are still not designed for demanding workflows with professional applications, graphics, or colour accuracy. The latest additions to the Z by HP portfolio are smallest footprint with the highest-end Quadro RTX 5000 & GeForce RTX 2080-Refresh, purpose-built and re-engineered from the ground up to meet the demanding needs of the most creative applications and workflows and provide optimal experiences today and in the future.
In 2015, the Scientific and Engineering Award was awarded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the development of the HP LP2480zx Professional DreamColor display[xii]. The ZBook Studio and ZBook Create bring the first DreamColor display with 17.5 hours, all-day battery life to visual effects artists, animators, and colourists worldwide, enabling them to accurately represent their content on-screen from anywhere because of DreamColor’s built-in colourimeter for automatic self-calibration, 100% sRGB and Adobe RGB for accuracy, and over a billion colours for smoother shading and more consistent gradients.
