Check out HP’s new business Chromebooks and thin client devices for hybrid work | #linux | #linuxsecurity

Hybrid work appears here to stay, and it’s changing business’s and professionals’ IT priorities. That means as the PC market continues to grow, but at a slower pace, major PC makers like HP have to be more attuned than ever to the needs of hybrid workers. 

To that end, HP on Thursday unveiled a handful of new devices largely designed to tap into data and applications stored in the cloud. The company also debuted new peripheral hardware, new software and new services, all designed to help hybrid workforces. The new devices include business Chromebooks, as well as thin client PCs — devices that rely on remote servers to access data and programs.
