Hewlett Packard created a lot of interest for its cancelled TouchPad tablet when it slashed the price to $99 for the 16GB model and $149 for the 32GB model, and it didn't take long for the OEM and its retail partners to run out of stock. That's old news. But did you know you can still buy a discounted TouchPad? You have two options for picking up a TouchPad on the cheap, and both come with caveats (and one with a time limit). Your first option is to head over to BestBuy.com and shop a bundle deal. Best Buy currently has stock of an untold number of 32GB TouchPad models, and the electronics chain... Read more...
Hewlett Packard made some major (and controversial) moves under the leadership of Leo Apotheker, the CEO that was just ousted. You have Mr. Apotheker to thank for your $99 TouchPad (and to curse for abandoning webOS hardware). He initiated a $10.3 billion cash acquisition of a U.K. software maker. But arguably his biggest move is in convincing HP's board to either spin off the company's Personal Systems Group business or sell it to the highest bidder. Now that Meg Whitman is taking Mr. Apotheker's place as CEO, is there any chance HP will keep its PC business, which is the biggest in the world?... Read more...
Leo Apotheker, CEO of Hewlett Packard, may soon have to look for a job. Apparently HP's board isn't real stoked about the way Mr. Apotheker has been running things since he was put in charge less than 11 months ago, and there's going to be a meeting to discuss his future -- or lack thereof -- with the company. According to a Bloomberg report, HP's board of directors might end up handing the CEO position on an interim basis to Meg Whitman, who previously served as CEO of eBay. The move would come on the heels of a dramatic shift in strategy by HP, one in which the company has abandoned webOS hardware... Read more...
Michael Dell is exactly what the Windows and Linux community need right now. It doesn't matter if you're not a fan of Dell computers, it's Mr. Dell's message that speaks to computer users far and wide. Consider that Apple is pushing hard into the mobile space with its iPad tablet devices, creating a sector that some analysts claim is cannibalizing the PC market. Smartphones are rocking dual-core processors (and soon quad-core chips), and the world's largest computer maker (HP) wants to sever its PC division, either as a spin-off or packaged with a bow and sold to the highest bidder. While all this... Read more...
We pinged three system builders -- Dell, Hewlett Packard, and iBuyPower -- and asked each one to send us a back-to-school PC equally suited for work and play (read: Mainstream). What we're looking for is a flexible configuration that's able to put its nose to the grindstone during the week to tackle multimedia projects, whether they be for school or for work, yet capable of running wild on the weekends with sufficient pixel pushing power to satisfy our jones for blowing something (or someone) up, in the virtual world, of course. Our request leaves a lot up for interpretation, and wouldn't you know... Read more...
Alice Cooper sang it wrong, school isn't out forever; with Labor Day in the rear view mirror, school is back in session. That means having to stock up on supplies and investing in essential items to get through the school year; like beer, condoms, and a new PC. You're on your own with the first two, but you've come to the right place for guidance on a new system. We pinged three system builders -- Dell, Hewlett Packard, and iBuyPower -- and asked each one to send us a back-to-school PC equally suited for work and play (read: Mainstream). What we're looking for is a flexible configuration... Read more...
Is there such thing as an affordable laser printer? Well sure, even ones that print in color. What about a 3D scanner? Those tend to run several hundred dollars, and can easily creep into four-digit territory. So imagine what a color laser printer with 3D scanning functionality baked in would run. Conventional wisdom says such a device would cost and arm and a leg, but Hewlett Packard has something else in mind. HP recently unveiled its TopShot LaserJet Pro M275, the company's very first color multi-function printer (MFP) with TopShot scanning that lets you scan, copy, and print from a single device....

It turns out all you need to do to dethrone Apple's iPad is launch a $500 tablet with modern hardware, discontinue the device, and mark it down to $99 (or $149 for the 32GB version). Hewlett Packard did exactly that and now owns the hottest selling tablet on the market, only the OEM failed to anticipate such rapid demand for a prematurely defunct device. Finding a marked down TouchPad at this point in the game is mostly an exercise in futility, and those who've been waiting for HP to receive a final shipment from one of its warehouses have been wearing out their F5 keys. Well, we have some good... Read more...
Hewlett Packard is shopping for a buyer to take its PC business off its hands, and there has been plenty of speculation as to which company might swoop in. One name that keeps coming up is Samsung, but that's now looking less likely than ever since Samsung CEO Geosing Choi said his company isn't interested. "To put to rest any speculation on the issue, I would like to definitively state that Samsung Electronics will not acquire Hewlett Packard's PC business," Choi wrote in a note to Wired.com. His written rhetoric doesn't leave much wriggle room for further speculation, so it's safe to take Samsung... Read more...
Well this is awkward, Just days after Hewlett Packard dropped a bombshell and announced to the world it wants to rid itself of its pesky PC business and focus all of its attention on software and printers, the OEM rolls out a new all-in-one (AIO) PC. It's the HP Compaq 8200 Elite, a slick looking machine aimed at enterprise users not bothered by HP's sudden 180. Boasting a 23-inch LED Full HD display, HP's new AIO comes configurable with a boat load of processor options starting with an Intel Pentium G620 (2.6GHz, 3MB cache, 2 cores) and going all the way to a Core i7 2600S (2.8GHz, 8MB cache,...

True story: I ventured down to my local Best Buy and stood in line the day Apple launched it's iPad 2. It was a longer line than the one I waited in during the original iPad's launch, and this time around, Best Buy employees tried their hardest to create a buzz for a product that really doesn't need it. There were excited pre-release announcements over the PA, there was music, and there was a blue-shirted employee standing on top of a ladder yelling to the crowd in an attempt to drum up excitement. It was over the top, and it was unnecessary for a product that virtually sells itself because, let's... Read more...
HP is planning to launch its 9.7-inch TouchPad tablet in the U.S. this Friday. Before the launch, new rumors suggest HP may also have another tablet up its sleeves: a 7-inch model. According to the rumors, the 7-inch tablet will be revealed in August.  According to Taiwan Economic News, Inventec will manufacture the tablet. HP has reportedly placed an order for 400,000 to 450,000 Touch Pad tablet PCs per month. Although no specifications have been revealed, many people expect the 7-inch version of the TouchPad to have similar hardware features as its big brother. HP's 9.7-inch TouchPad tablet...

For whatever reason, Hewlett Packard decided not to make a big deal out of the fact that its 'Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse' is now available for purchase. We'll go ahead and do it for them, because this is one rodent deserving of a little fanfare. The reason we're intrigued with the Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse is because even though wireless mice have been done before, they've never been done like this. Unlike other wireless rodents that communicate with your PC using either Bluetooth or a USB dongle, HP's creation uses your computer's built-in Wi-Fi receiver. Genius! Notebook users who aren't real keen on using... Read more...
HP emptied its entire bag of tricks on the EliteBook 8560p, the company's top-end business laptop that employs several features we wish other notebook vendors would adopt. HP tells HotHardware the 8560p is the result of lots of user feedback, sporting several subtle suggestions that combine to make this one of the most enjoyable non-gaming laptops we've ever played with. There are three pre-configured EliteBook 8560p models to choose from priced from $1,100 to $1,500. The one we have in-house is HP's $1,500 model with several pre-configured bells and whistles... Hewlett Packard EliteBook 8560p... Read more...
