All of these newly-announced laptops are Tile-enabled. This makes it easy to find your device if you've misplaced it. For the first time, Tile comes preinstalled on the HP EliteBook 800 G8 series and the ZBook FireFly G8 laptops. In addition to being preinstalled, the Tile technology doesn't require any additional hardware. As a result, people can use the Tile Mobile app to find their laptops. The Tile integration even works if a laptop is in sleep, hibernate, or soft-off mode.
