The unusually named HP mt43 and HP mt20 machines are aimed a range of enterprise use cases for users working on tasks in cloud-computing environments.Hewlett-Packard Inc. came out Jan. 31 with two new mobile thin clients that certainly look like any other laptop one can find at Best Buy or on any online retail site you can name. There's a different twist this time, however: One of the two thin clients doesn't come installed with Windows 10. We'll explain. The unusually named HP mt43 and HP mt20 machines are aimed a range of enterprise use cases and designed to bring enough computing power and graphics capabilities to users working on tasks in cloud-computing environments. The 14-inch-screen HP mt43 Mobile Thin Client is crafted with premium materials for a thin, light look and feel; it features a backlit keyboard, large-format glass touchpad and HP's Bang & Olufsen audio system.
