HP, on Tuesday, expanded its portfolio of always-connected PCs with the introduction of the HP14s notebooks for mainstream users. The new notebook portfolio comes with 4G LTE connectivity, which was previously only available with HP’s premium notebooks such as HP Elite Dragonfly and HP Spectre X360, as per the company’s official release.

The tech company said that millions of users have been forced to work from home due to the coronavirus crisis. With low fixed-line broadband penetration and sub-optimal security protocols for home Wi-Fi; 4G LTE plays a critical role in providing fast and secure internet connectivity. The new HP notebooks fill a critical gap in the market, by providing enterprise-grade connectivity and security in an affordable price band, it said.
