New pixels? Yep. The HP Compaq LE2002xm is one of the company's newest screens, with a 1600x900 resolution and 20 diagonal inches of real estate. As for other specs, there's 250 nits of brightness, a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, built-in speakers as well as DVI/VGA inputs. The company is expected to start shipping it next month for $155, which nets you 170/160 degree viewing angles, too. Of course, this is a pretty middle-of-the-road monitor, with no HDMI port and no option for a 1080p resolution. But hey, if you need a solid brand at a solid price...... Read more...
In the wake of HP's announcement that it intends to investigate a PC spin off, the company has discovered one of the downsides to being the market leader:  It's hard to find a buyer. Samsung has recently announced it has no interest in acquiring HP's PSG (Personal Systems Group).  While Samsung's own PC business is quite healthy, with ten million units shipped last year, it's dwarfed by HP's estimated 64 million unit shipments over the same period. Samsung's CEO told Wired: "Based on the significant disparity in scale with Samsung’s own PC business and the complete lack of synergies,... Read more...

When it comes to the personal computing market, Apple is considered the cream of the crop these days. But a new quarterly report from PC repair firm, RescueCom, shows that increasing numbers of Apple customers are having trouble with their beloved Macs. Lenovo has been crowned as the most reliable, while ASUS, despite losing market share, beat Apple to claim the No. 2 spot. So says the first Computer Reliability Report of 2011, which covers Q1. RescueCom determines reliability by comparing the units shipped by a specific manufacturer versus the number of repair calls for that brand. Granted, the... Read more...
Compaq. Remember that name? Believe it or not, the brand is still around, and the HP subordinate has just revealed one of the most eye-catching machines to be announced this year. The Airlife 100 is a really unique computer. The 10.1" screen may lead you to believe that this is just another netbook, but the specification lists says otherwise.In our opinion, the Airlife 100 is what would be created if a netbook, a smartbook and a mobile phone got together to have a good time. Running the show here is Google's Android operating system, which is generally reserved for use on smartphones. We know that... Read more...
You knew it would happen at some point, didn't you? With mobile operators offering subsidized netbooks in order to advance adoption of mobile broadband services, Sprint has become the first of the US-based carriers to reach all the way down to free. Or almost free, if we're being precise. While AT&T and Verizon Wireless currently offer the HP-Compaq Mini 110c for $199 with a 2-year data plan, Sprint has teamed up with Best Buy in order to sell the machine for just $0.99 with a 2-year agreement on the company's "Now Network." If one were to buy this machine straight-out, you'd pay $389.99, but... Read more...
Now that we've got the IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad X41 Tablet PC review under our belts, we are going to backtrack a bit to take a look at the HP/Compaq TC4200. Although the IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC hit the HotHardware lab first, the HP/Compaq TC4200 was actually introduced before the X41. These two Tablet PCs are targeted at slightly different audiences, however. The HP/Compaq TC4200 is a quasi-ultraportable, rather than being a true "ultraportable," and as such, this is a mobile PC aimed at the professional user...

  Now that we've got some Dell, IBM, and HP notebook reviews under our belt, we are going to depart from the business oriented line of machines we've already looked at, and take some time to go over Compaq's new Presario V4000. After the acquisition by Hewlett Packard, Compaq fully devoted its Presario notebook designs towards the consumer segment, while HP offers both consumer and business notebooks. In that sense, there is some redundancy considering the overlap in the consumer market, but between the two brand names, overall, this makes for a wider selection of notebooks. Compaq Presario...
