We estimated costs for an organization to purchase, deploy, manage, and secure an HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2, a 2 in 1 with an Intel Core processor featuring Intel vPro technology, versus a sub-$1,000 laptop combined with either an iPad or Android tablet. At first blush, one might expect a laptop and a consumer tablet solution to be cheaper than a 2 in 1 Intel vPro. That was not true here, even for the devices alone: The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 device cost about the same as the combined hardware cost of the laptop device and either consumer tablet. The cost advantages of the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 became obvious when we added in the costs of the tablet, hardware support, consumer tablet replacement costs, and costs to deploy, manage, secure, and support two devices versus one 2 in 1 Intel vPro HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 device with business-grade security. The savings would become even more dramatic if you factored in the costs associated with additional peripheral devices and accessories, and the time employees must spend managing files and content (costs we omitted from our analysis).
For companies that want to provide their workers with tablet devices and for companies that support bring-your-own employee-purchased or BYOD solutions, the benefits of a single 2 in 1 device such as the 2 in 1 Intel vPro HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 are many.
