Is HP A Trustworthy Brand?

Posted in News by PC Renewed on April 11th 2019
We understand that not everyone is a computer expert and laptops can be very confusing pieces of technology. This is why lots of people choose to purchase pre-assembled laptops from well-known brands, such as the Refurbished HP Laptops which are available on our online store

What’s The Alternative To Pre-Assembled Computersgreen card computer
If you’re searching for something a more customised and bespoke, you could opt to purchase the components and build the computer yourself. However, this requires depth knowledge regarding how computers work and how to safely assemble them. As such, self-assembly should only be attempted by people who are very knowledgeable about computer components and how they work.

The Hewlett-Packard Brand

Are Hewlett-Packard laptops trustworthy? Is this a brand that you can count on, or should you skip laptops and computers made by this American multinational information technology company? The short answer? Yes, Hewlett-Packard is a well-known brand that is used in both home computing and business environments.

For the long answer, we’ll need to look back in history at the HP brand as over the years this tech company has developed and provided a wide variety of components and software for a wide range of customers including businesses, enterprises, and governments.

Did you know, the company name was decided via coin toss; it would have either been HP (Hewlett-Packard) or PH (Packard-Hewlett)

Hewlett-Packard was founded by Bill Hewlett and David Packard in a one-car garage in Palo Alto. Initially the duo produced a line of electronic test equipment, however from 2007 to Q2 of 2013, HP developed into the world’s leading PC manufacturer. One of their earliest customers was Walt Disney Productions. Disney bought 8 model 200B oscillators which were precision audio oscillators, thanks to their innovative use of a small incandescent light bulb. These oscillators were used by Disney to certify the Fantasound surround sound systems installed in movie theatres for their film, Fantasia.

However, Hewlett-Packard’s technological expertise isn’t limited to electronic test equipment or computers. During the Second World War, they worked on counter-radar technology as well as artillery shell fuses; this resulted in Packard being exempt from the military draft. Additionally, further adding to the Hewlett-Packard brand’s credibility, they are recognised as the symbolic founder of Silicon Valley.

So can you trust a HP computer or laptop? Well, as seeing as HP is a specialist in developing and manufacturing computing, data storage, and networking hardware, and they were at one point the world’s leading Pc manufacturer; we certainly think so.
