At the same time, laptop accessories such as the keyboard and mouse can now be used as peripherals of your smartphone, providing a more convenient user experience. The laptop is then able to share more advanced office applications with your phone to uncover a brand new office experience that includes your phone, for a much more secure and convenient office environment.

This Fingerprint Power Button allows users to quickly wake up their PC and resume work without having to first re-enter their password or rescan their finger.
Business travelers usually carry several devices with them, ranging from smartphones to laptops. Typically each of these devices comes with a different charger, creating more baggage for the users. Having separate chargers also means there’s an increased chance of forgetting them.
