Larry Lloyd of RealCo has just discovered the HP Elite x3. And he loves it.

Larry’s property maintenance company is spread across four different offices across the south of England, with 150 different users. Portable technology is essential for this line of work and the HP Elite x3 ticks all the boxes.

It looks just like a phone. Granted, a sleek, business-ready phone, but a phone nonetheless. Understandably, Larry was sceptical at first. But when he learned that it packs the power of a PC, and can be docked into full sized monitor and keyboard set ups, he was sold.

It's everything I use, all in one device

“It replaces all my devices” he said. All his data, all his applications, all in one place. He envisions a perfect work situation with docking stations at hot desks in different locations, the HP Elite x3 ready to connect by dropping it in a desktop dock, or wirelessly connecting to a Lap Dock.

Hear it straight from the horse's mouth. Watch the video and see for yourself how the HP Elite x3 has made life easier for Larry.

You will have seen him wax lyrical about making presentations straight from his device, projecting directly from the HP Elite x3 in seconds, no need to battle with cables or specialist devices.

Larry feels confident that his data is secure, with access granted only through biometric authentication – with the integrated fingerprint scanner and iris recognition. And with data confined to a single device, the risk of compromise is drastically reduced.

He enjoys the dual SIM capability, meaning he no longer needs a separate work and personal phone. He can just carry the single device around, covering all of his business needs, taking care of his personal communication on a separate line.

The HP Elite x3 was designed for people exactly like Larry. People for whom work is not sitting at the same desk all day. Something you do, not where you go. And we’re delighted Larry likes it so much.
