Anyone who is still immersed in the world of PCs today is undoubtedly familiar with the HP brand.
Hewlett-Packard, founded in 1939 in the United States, is one of the pioneering brands in computer software and IT services.
As a curious fact, in 1972, the company launched its first mini-computer, the HP 3000, a product line that is still in use today in many companies. That same year they launched the world's first scientific pocket calculator at an affordable price.
The day HP said no...
HP's history is long and has its share of controversial episodes. You may be surprised to learn that, in 1976, they ruled out building a prototype of what was intended to be the first personal computer (PC). The offer came from an intern, Stephen G. Wozniak, who later joined Steven P. Jobs to create Apple Computer, Inc.
You probably already know the rest of the story...
Eventually, the company's first successful product for the personal computer market was a printer. The HP LaserJet, launched in 1984, received rave reviews and had great sales, becoming Hewlett-Packard's most successful product.
Undoubtedly, its printers and laptops. They offer dozens of models adapted to all budgets and purposes.
As you can imagine, their product range is super extensive, but since 2015, when the company split into two: Hewlett Packard (HP) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), HP focused on manufacturing personal computers and printers.
HP is committed to innovating in digital printing, which reflects in the constant improvement of the performance of its notebooks.
HP also offers a wide variety of accessories for PCs and printers, such as original inks and toners.
Since 2002, the brand has been applying manufacturing policies and optimizing waste recycling in order to become a sustainable company.
