Latest Spectre and ENVY portfolio inspire people to create in the hybrid world
KUALA LUMPUR, July 28, 2022 – HP Inc. Malaysia today debuted its newest HP Spectre and HP ENVY laptops built with the flexibility to create and live seamlessly in today’s hybrid world.
The last few years have seen the rise of the creator economy, introducing endless possibilities for people to pursue their passions as a part-time or full-time opportunity. The gig economy will see ongoing growth in 2022 especially among Gen Zs and Millennials. Recent World Bank estimates put the number of gig workers in the SEA region at 150 million and growing. And technology has become more important than ever in empowering them to easily start and run their businesses, with e-commerce being the most popular side gig. These hustlers need tools that allow them to collaborate with others easily as 56% of creators feel less engaged with the speaker if their video is turned off. And performance equals productivity, which is why 60% of creators prize performance in a computer.
“With more professionals following their passions through their side hustles, they need devices that enable them to develop relevant and engaging products and services that delight customers wherever they are,” Alex Tan, Managing Director of HP Inc. Malaysia. “This is why HP has launched a spectacular lineup of Spectre and ENVY PCs, as well as peripherals that will empower them to capture every idea, collaborate with anyone and create with no limits.”
