Desk Organization Ideas

Clear your clutter with small form and mini PCs
No one likes a jumbled mess of cords and wires on their desk. Be honest with yourself: It's time to clear your desk and organize your workspace. Workers are moving toward elegant, small form-factor PCs that can make a big impact in a small space, whether it's open office seating, a team huddle room, or a home office.
Work desk organization: Why it matters
“Workers spend a majority of their time at their desks, but still have the need for a beautifully-designed device,” says HP Desktops Marketing Project Manager Noe Smith. Whether it's the receptionist's desk, or at a table with colleagues, space is always at a premium.
The best Windows mini PCs for 2020
Besides looking cool (and being small), the HP EliteDesk 800 series—or any of the other mini versions of HP desktops—gives users the performance of a traditional business-class tower. You can stick it under your desk, behind your monitor, or even rack mount it. It may be little, but it's no lightweight—it has a 9th generation Intel® processor and high-capacity storage. And when you head out, you can even store and lock your Mini and power cord in an optional HP Lock Box.
The best Microsoft Teams Rooms console
A streamlined desk is one thing—but how about streamlining your whole office? With the HP Elite Slice G2 with Microsoft Teams Rooms, it's totally possible. This conference room-ready PC comes configured with a collaboration cover right out of the box: The cover has one-touch collaboration buttons at hand's reach. And with its advanced noise cancellation, it'll make your team on the other end of the line sound crystal clear.
Is there such a thing as a small-form monitor?
There sure is. The HP Mini-in-One 24 Monitor is the perfect partner for your small-form PC. It also offers an integrated privacy webcam that blocks your webcam feed when not in use, and optional security screws to protect your mini while it’s mounted and deter theft.
Hey, what if I need to charge my phone?
Who doesn't? “Personal electronics are taking higher priority on the desk,” says Smith. With the HP Mini-in-One 24 Monitor, you can connect to your phone, a second notebook, or a tablet with a single USB-C cable and USB devices through 6 USB ports.
This is all very cool. But I think I still need the power of a tower.
We get it! Some people do (and if you're one of them, be sure to check out all the cool specs on the HP EliteDesk 800 Desktop Tower). But for most users, small is good—and getting better. “As small form computers evolve, you're going to see them get more powerful and more expandable,” Smith says. “We're just getting started.”
Getting Work Done with Microsoft Office
When it’s time to work, Windows 10 with Microsoft Office provides all the tools you need to be productive -- from anywhere in your home! With a Microsoft 365 subscription, you can install apps on up to five devices so you never miss a beat. And, you’ll always have the most up-to-date Office apps with around-the-clock support from Microsoft, minimizing downtime and maximizing your ability to collaborate with your team to get things done.
