Many office workers were caught off guard in March 2020: no or only a bad webcam in the notebook, creaking sound, feedback, slow battery. The still good notebook had somehow reached its limits in the age of Corana, #stayathome and home office.
Manufacturers can be happy: With mobile work at home, home office or other hybrid work concepts, there are plenty of tables of all kinds to equip. A look at the home electronics index (Hemix) of the industry association gfu shows: By October 2020 there was an increase of a good 20 percent compared to the same period in the previous year for notebooks, and even 40 percent for monitors.

With Dolby Voice, Lenovo’s Thinkpads of the X1 Carbon and Yoga series support a new audio technology that should make video conferences easier to understand and less tiring. For this purpose, individual voices are better separated from each other or noise and echoes are suppressed using software. Other models rely on two or more microphones or develop loudspeaker solutions with well-known names such as Bang & Olufsen or Dolby.
At HP, a technology called Dynamic Audio recognizes whether a video conference or a film is currently in progress – and adjusts the audio output accordingly. The computer can even adjust itself to the listening habits of individual people via sound calibration.
