Intel Invites Malaysians to Redefine Productivity with Launch of #WorkFromHappyPlace Campaign

KUALA LUMPUR, JUNE 15, 2015 – The days of the punch-card are numbered. A survey suggests that two in three Malaysians pick happiness over salaries and job titles. The Intel #WorkFromHappyPlace campaign invites Malaysians to restore their work-life balance, redefine productivity and reinvigorate their creativity with Intel® powered devices, such as the HP Stream 8 tablet and the HP Pavilion x2 2in1 convertible. 

“For over 50 years, Intel has been refining microprocessor technology to the beat of Moore’s Law. These microprocessors power the continuing evolution of computing devices - from massive data centers and sleek 2in1 devices to smartphones and tablets. Thanks to the close cooperation we here share with customers like HP, we have been able to offer these innovations to consumers,” said Karen Chow, Head of MNC and Telco, Intel Malaysia and Singapore.

“With Moore's Law celebrating its 50th year anniversary this year, Intel is committed to driving the evolution of the PC with our partners to provide devices that’ll keep up with your every need. Encompassing a wide range of form factor, tasks you wish to complete or how you use your machine - Intel® processors are engineered for performance at every price point, for every need.”

Powered by Intel® processors, the HP Stream 8 and Pavilion x2 deliver the speed and responsiveness to support anywhere, anytime productivity. They are the ideal companions for a mobile, connected and dynamic workforce driven by passion, freedom and good old-fashioned fun.
The HP Stream 8 is a single-SIM (Micro-SIM) tablet powered by an Intel Atom Z3735G processor (1.8GHz, 4 cores, 4 threads) with Intel HD graphics and 1GB of DDR3 RAM. Featuring an 8-inch HD (1280x800 pixels) IPS display, the Stream 8 runs on Windows 8.1 and comes with a one-year subscription to Office 365 and 1TB of Microsoft OneDrive storage for one year.

Customers can fully personalize their tablet with Start screen, live tiles and a dynamic lock screen and, with multi-user support built-in, sharing the tablet between users is easy.

“Today’s consumers demand mobile products that fit their personal style, and allow them to work and play wherever they are. These HP products hit the mark with sleek design, portability and access to free cloud storage,” said Kym Lim, General Manager, Printing & Personal Systems, HP Malaysia.

Ultra-portable and affordable, the HP Pavilion x2 2-in-1 PC has a full-featured 10-inch diagonal Windows tablet that shifts to a full-featured laptop with a detachable dual-purpose keyboard/cover that both protects the screen and serves as a multi-position stand.
