(Pocket-lint) - A new year is finally upon us, and we're in good company when we say that we hope it's a better one than the last. One thing that's unlikely to change immediately, though, is that more people than ever before will continue to work from home in the coming months.

Having decent equipment with which to work can make a huge difference to your enjoyment of that new working pattern, though, so the new year offers a really good opportunity to change things up a bit. That's why HP's running its superb Back to Business sale, offering a range of great discounts on some of its most popular tech. We've gathered four top examples right here for you to check out, but be sure to browse the full sale on the HP Store to find more bargains.

HP Envy Laptop - 17t-cg100

First up is this absolutely stellar laptop, with a powerful Intel processor at its heart and a huge 16GB of RAM to ensure that it powers through your work tasks quicker than you can blink. With a 512GB SSD to store your files on, things will load instantaneously, and you'll be sure to enjoy its snappiness whether at work or play.

A huge 17-inch display also means that you've got plenty of space for multi-tasking and it's also great for watching movies or TV on in lunch breaks or evenings, making this Envy laptop a real all-rounder. Plus, the Back to Business sale sees it lose a massive $350 from its price - check it out now!

HP Neverstop Laser MFP 1202w

If you're anything like us, you resisted buying a printer for so long that neighbours started to get almost annoyed by your constant borrowing of theirs. Well, avoid that pitfall by picking up a solid office printer of your own, an essential tool for any home worker, but also frankly necessary for personal use too. This model gets a nice $30 discount in the sale.

It's got printing, scanning and copying all present and correct, and can do all of those wirelessly with the help of HP's excellent app, and can absolutely churn out pages to make sure your print jobs don't take too long. A massive toner capacity also means you can print 5,000 pages before needing a refill. 

HP ProDesk 400 G5 Mini Desktop PC

If you want something a little smaller to free up space on your desk, a mini PC could be the perfect solution, and this tiny option from HP is a real winner. The ProDesk 400 G5 has an impressive 500GB hard drive squeezed into its tiny shell, along with an Intel processor to keep things running smoothly.

Plug it into a monitor, then hook up a keyboard and mouse, and you're ready to go, and the machine is small enough that you can easily hide it away in a drawer or even pack it away fully each evening if you prefer. Best of all, it's half off in the sale, saving a massive $424 dollars - it's the perfect time to get a high-end mini PC for a budget price.

HP Envy All-in-One - 32-a0035

On the flipside, you could opt for an all-in-one solution if you're looking to cover all your bases. This superb desktop computer is a single unit with the display built-in, so you don't need to find space for a separate computer tower. That display is 32 inches in size, so it's perfect for extended work sessions. 

You even get excellent sound into the bargain, with supreme integrated speakers. It's all backed up by a powerful Intel processor, a full terabyte of hard drive space and 256GB of SSD space, and 16GB of RAM, so you can expect stellar performance as you work. It's perfect as a workstation, in fact, but also as a family computer. You can save a chunky $150 on it right now, too.
