Virtually all of the system builders on the planet are looking to hop on board Intel's Sandy Bridge platform, but not all systems are created equal. Serving as a testament to the architecture's flexibility, some Sandy Bridge systems take aim at gamers, while other have multimedia chores in mind. Hewlett Packard's EliteBook 8560p can do a little a of both and is described as a "business performer." We see you rolling your eyes at the notion of an in-depth business notebook review, but hang with us, it will be worth the ride. HP emptied its entire bag of tricks on the EliteBook 8560p, the company's... Read more...
Hewlett Packard reckons if you're a business user, your desk is probably cluttered enough as it is with TPS reports, stacks of papers, your custom name plate, pictures of the family, and whatever other knick nacks lay strewn about. Why add a bulky monitor to the mix? To help make the most out of your desktop real estate, HP is getting ready to launch its Elite L2201x monitor, a 21.5-inch LED display that's described as an "ultra-modern, micro-thin business monitor." According to HP, this is the company's thinnest monitor to date measuring (with stand) 19.94 (W)  x 4.89 (D) x 14.22 (H) inches.... Read more...
If all the cool kids are running Intel's Sandy Bridge platform, then consider HP's revamped Pavilion dm4x laptop line a sub-$800 hipster.

We knew HP was working on a webOS tablet, but now, pictures and additional specifications have emerged. Although the official announcement for HP’s webOS tablet is expected on February 9, a “trusted tipster” has provided Engadget with images as well as specs. In looking at the photos, the upcoming 9-inch tablet, code-named Topaz as well as the 7-inch version known as Opal, are looking pretty stunning. Both tablets are said to have a no-button design, similar to what we’ve seen from other upcoming tablets such as the Motorola Xoom and the BlackBerry Playbook. The tablets... Read more...
We’ve heard that a webOS-based tablet was in the works from HP, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Although HP made no announcements at CES last week, Todd Bradley, executive vice president of Hewlett Packard’s Personal Systems Group, made comments during a recent interview that seem to indicate HP is working on a tablet to compete with Apple’s iPad. During the interview with CNBC, Bradley claimed HP was focused on the tablet market. To back up that claim, he said a public announcement is coming on February 9. In response to questions about how HP’s tablet would compete... Read more...
Uncle Sam doesn't like it when you try to pull one over on him, and that's something Hewlett Packard had to go and find out the hard way. After standing accused of offering kickbacks to systems integrator companies in exchange for recommending HP products to U.S. agencies, the OEM has agreed to fork over $55 million to put the whole incident in their rear view mirror, the Justice Department announced this week. "Contractors must deal fairly with the government when doing business with federal agencies," said U.S. assistant attorney general Tony West. "As this case demonstrates, we will take action...

Intel just recently announced that its dual-core Atom N550 processor will be shipping in no less than 12 netbooks now and in the coming weeks, so we'll cut Hewlett Packard (HP) some slack for being slow to update its main product pages. But while the company's HP Mini 5103 netbook landing still shows old specs, the product's Energy Star profile and user manual reveal that a dual-core upgrade is in the netbook's cards. As originally configured, the HP Mini 5103 comes with the now oldie-moldy, single-core N455 (or N475). The Atom N550 upgrade comes clocked a little slower than both of those other... Read more...
When given the opportunity to review HP's new 30" ZR30w display, we answered 'yes' without hesitation. We didn't need to hear the rest - the fact that this is a ginormous 30-inch display built around a sexy S-IPS panel is all we needed to know. S-IPS, or Super In-Plane Switching, is the Rolls Royce of display panels and almost always offers significantly better color reproduction and far wider viewing angles than the much more common (and cheaper to produce) Twisted Nematic (TN) panels. S-IPS displays also tend to tap deeper into your gold reserve than TN-based monitors, and when you're talking... Read more...
How should you go about determining what size monitor to buy? It's simple - go out and purchase the biggest, baddest display you can afford, because really, you only get one shot at this thing called life, so why waste it staring at a 23-inch panel? If you're still not convinced, consider that, more than any other component in your entire build, it's the monitor you'll use to its fullest 100 percent of the time. You can't say that about your dual-videocards, six-core processor, or even your keyboard, but it certainly applies to your display, the one piece of hardware that brings the entire build...

All the "I"s are dotted and the "T"s are crossed in Hewlett Packard's $1.2 billion acquisition of Palm, which was finalized on Thursday, HP announced. That means HP can officially begin putting into motion whatever plans it has for Palm's technology, and most notably the newly acquired webOS platform. "With webOS, HP will deliver its customers a unique and compelling experience across smartphones and other mobility products," said Todd Bradley, executive vice president, Personal Systems Group, HP. "This allows us the opportunity to fully engage in growing our smartphone family offering and the... Read more...
Hewlett Packard is giving it up for Mother Nature by releasing four new displays that promise not to put the hurt the environment, in case you care about that sort of thing. Each of the four monitors use only two-lamp panels instead of four to reduce both power consumption and toxic chemicals, and as a result are Energy Star 5.0 compliant and TCO 5.0 certified. Working our way from top to bottom we start with the 2710m, a 27-inch display with a 1920x1080 native resolution and rated at 400 nits of brightness. Other specs include a 2.5ms response time (GTG), 92-percent color gamut coverage, a 1,000:1... Read more...
If the latest reports turn out to be true, then Hewlett Packard might be doing a huge favor for Apple. According to Spanish paper Clipset, worst case scenario is that HP won't be shipping its Slate tablet until September, by which time Apple's iPad would have about a 5 month head start.We probably won't have to wait quite that long, but whether or not the Slate ships before the tail-end of summer remains to be seen. Loosely translated, Clipset claims the official launch is scheduled for June and that units will arrive in Europe "before September." What that means for the U.S. market isn't yet known.We'd...

In just a few weeks, Apple will finally release its much hyped iPad to the public, and if Apple has its way, the iPad will do for the tablet space what the iPod did for media player market and iPhone did for the smartphone sector. In other words, it will set the bar by which all competitor products are measured, no matter how loud the anti-Apple sentiment resonates from die-hard PC (as in, Windows-based) fans. But here's the thing. Unlike Apple's previous products, which could be considered groundbreaking in one way or another at the time of release, the iPad isn't exactly revolutionary and leaves...

With a claim of “nearly 30-years of touch innovation” under its belt, HP is no stranger to touch-input technology. The company has recently integrated touch input into a number of its consumer and business product lines, such as tablets and displays and perhaps is most well-known for its line of TouchSmart all-in-one desktop PCs. In fact, when the TouchSmart first debuted in 2007, it was one of very first multi-touch desktop PCs to hit the market, though touch technology has come a long way since then, especially with the advent of Windows 7's touch capabilities.Taking advantage of a good thing...
