Buying Guide: Modern PC


[Modern PC at Harvey Norman]
Bring your dreams to life with Modern PC. Designed for the modern lifestyle, with all-day battery life*1, facial or fingerprint recognition, and lightning fast SSDs so you can work how you want, when you want.


Work smarter, not harder

Modern PC gives you the flexibility to work when you need to thanks to its instant log-in with Windows® Hello—you can pick up where you left off quickly and easily. It’s also thinner and lighter, meaning you can take it with you wherever life takes you. Its all-day battery life*1 means you can concentrate on what you have to do, and not waste time hunting for the charging cable or be tied down to the nearest electrical outlet. Plus, its versatile structure allows you to use it in four different ways, from conventional laptop to tablet mode.

Play to your heart’s content

Enjoy the very best of everything—whatever you do. With vivid displays, powerful processors and exceptionally quick loading speeds, you can easily run desktop software like Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign to reach a new level in your creative pursuits. Fully immerse yourself in gaming, or effortlessly surf, shop and connect across multiple tabs and programmes.

Designed for life on the go

Realise your potential with Modern PC. Interact without restriction thanks to its intuitive touchscreen operation and be more productive and more mobile than ever before with its all-day battery life*1—so you can go, go, go wherever life takes you.


[All-Day Battery]
It doesn’t matter how good a portable device works—if the battery life is poor, any benefit is undermined. However, Modern PCs are powered by lithium batteries, which means you won’t even need to remember to take your charger when you leave the house.
  • Deal with any problem and take advantage of every opportunity with all-day battery life.*1
  • Thanks to the latest battery technology, Modern PCs are thinner and lighter than their traditional counterparts. Pair this with the fact that you won’t need to carry a charger, it’s clear that Modern PCs are designed for the ultimate in on-the-go productivity.
The intuitive touchscreen of a Modern PC takes the user experience to the next level—but with the Inking function, you can interact with your PC just as you would a piece of paper, meaning it’s easier than ever to keep pace with your thoughts and schedule.
  • No notebook? No problem. Take handwritten notes and issue commands without a mouse: get more done with less equipment.
  • Intelligent notes mean you can scrawl an address and get directions, jot down a phone number and call it with a single tap, or even write a flight number and get updates on its status—it’s the written form, rewritten for now.
  • Sketching and drawing is an artist’s dream with Inking: use both hands to adjust the thickness of a line, or use tools like the virtual ruler to work as you would on a physical page.
  • With Inking, it’s also easier to collaborate, from making amendments to sharing insights. Simply take a screen grab, annotate the page with your stylus and share the results with a single click.
[Intel Processor]
Discover facial recognition on Windows 10. Windows Hello logs you into your Windows devices faster than a password. Use your camera to recognise your face or try your fingerprint reader on Windows Hello compatible devices – either way Windows Hello recognises you instantly. You can always keep your PIN as a backup.
  • Enable Windows Hello to switch on sign-in with your face or fingerprint*2. Login to your laptop, tablet, device, app or even websites faster and more securely. You can even make in-app purchases with your face or fingerprint.
  • Windows Hello even works with compatible apps such as OneDrive and Dropbox, so you can bypass the password and breeze right through with facial recognition biometric security. Sign-ins are fast and password-free!
  • Windows Hello lets you use your digital wristband, smart watch, phone and other companion devices to unlock your Windows PC quickly, without using a password!
The next step in the evolution of the hard drive is the Solid State Drive. SSDs are faster, quieter and stronger than Hard Disk Drives. With instant boot up, rapid file access and an almost silent operation, your Modern PC will work as quickly and efficiently as you do.
  • With no moving parts, SSDs are unlike conventional HDDs—meaning they will take longer to wear out and operate nearly noiselessly.
  • SSDs require less power and work faster than standard HDDs, so you can enjoy shorter load times and longer battery life.
*1. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage and other factors. *2. Windows Hello requires specialised hardware including a Windows Hello capable device, fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors and capable devices.
