Laptops have seemingly overtaken the desktop in terms of popularity and usage. With laptops now readily accessible and affordable, most people now prefer laptops over desktops just by the fact that they can use it anywhere. Desktops therefore have to come up with better features that will make them stand out from laptops. Current desktops function better as workstations which make them compete well with most laptops, that is, when not counting portability or mobility as a feature. This new HP Sprout G2 PC makes a credible argument for that.
The new HP Sprout G2 all-in-one PC was recently introduced in 2017 CES in Las Vegas. It is a sleeker version of its predecessor, the HP Sprout Pro, which was launched way back in 2014. This PC comes with a device that can scan objects in 3D. Now, not every PC or even laptop can do this, making the HP Sprout G2 unique and stand out from the rest.
Other unique features of the HP Sprout G2 is the Touch Mat in place or a physical keyboard. the 20-point multi-touch feature allows two sets of hands to interact with objects projected on the display. It also serves as a base where any object can be 3D scanned and digitized. 3D scanning is made possible by the Sprout Illuminator, which includes an FHD projector and a 14MP downward facing camera.
Inside, the HP Sprout G2 is powered by the latest 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, Intel HD Graphics 360 processor, an upgraded NVIDIA GTX 960M graphic processor for faster 3D scanning, a 16GB DDR memory, and a 23.8-inch high resolution display. The HP Sprout G2 is expected to be available sometime in March of this year, along with the pricing options.
