Have you ever thought about pairing an 8-inch tablet with a 10-inch keyboard? Probably not, but HP did, and the result is the new Envy Note 8. Described as a "tablet-first device," the Envy Note 8 offers the portability of an 8-inch tablet form factor running Windows 10 with the productivity of a small laptop, provided you shell out extra for the optional Envy Note Keyboard Folio.It's an unusual combination -- imagine shrinking your notebook's display to 10 inches but leaving the keyboard alone -- though HP figures it will appeal to customers who want the best of both worlds.The aluminum folio...

Microsoft’s Surface and Surface Pro family of tables have elicited a number of copycat designs over the years. Most recently, we’ve seen Apple take a stab at the Surface Pro form-factor with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro — a category that Apple CEO Tim Cook just a few years ago likened to pairing a toaster with a refrigerator. HP is the latest to take a stab at a “tablet with a kickstand” with its Spectre x2. But whereas most previous OEMs have attempted to go after the Surface Pro, the Spectre x2 seems squarely aimed at the more affordable Surface 3. You won’t find high-powered Core i5 or Core i7 processors... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard today announced a top-to-bottom revamp of its Elite product family, and no stone has been left unturned. The company has refreshed its notebooks, desktops, and all-in-one machines with sleek exteriors, potent AMD APUs and Intel Skylake power under the hood, and Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. Starting off with the notebooks, it’s hard not to be impressed by the EliteBook 705 G3 series, which is available in 12.5-inch, 14-inch and 15.6-inch form-factors. Given the wide range of screen sizes available, you shouldn’t be too surprised to learn that available screen resolutions... Read more...
Hewlett Packard is getting ready to eliminate as many as 30,000 jobs and likely no less than 25,000 as it splits away from its printer and PC business. All of the job cuts will be associated with the newly formed Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), a separate entity that HP expects will pull in more than $50 billion in annual revenue. "Hewlett Packard Enterprise will be smaller and more focused than HP is today, and we will have a broad and deep portfolio of businesses that will help enterprises transition to the new style of business," said Meg Whitman, who will become President and Chief Executive...

We gave you a detailed introduction to AMD’s sixth generation A-Series (Carrizo) APU back in early June. Carrizo is taking direct aim at Intel in the notebook market, specifically targeting the mid-range ultrabook market and Intel’s bread and butter mobile Core i5 processors. Under the surface, the 28nm Carrizo-based APUs feature four Excavator cores and eight third-generation GCN graphics cores (which of course are DX12 compatible). The new GCN cores promise a 65 percent graphics performance boost over the previous generation Kaveri APU, all while operating within a 15W TDP. Now, notebooks featuring... Read more...
You may have a collection of hilarious (and comfortable) t-shirts, but if you work at HP, you better stock up on more professional looking attire. Yes, that even applies to programmers grinding a living behind a keyboard, who were among the 100,000 people HP reportedly sent a memo to reminding them of the "smart casual" dress code. Anonymous sources told The Register that the memo was sent out because the suits at HP feared that customers visiting the company wouldn't take well to seeing R&D engineers look anything less than professional. Forget for a moment that casual attire is both a trend... Read more...
Back in early December, Hewlett-Packard pulled the wraps off two interesting new ultrabooks: the svelte EliteBook Folio 1020 and Folio 1020 SE. The Intel Core M-powered Folio 1020 SE was the real stunner, however, with its QHD display, and magnesium-lithium alloy and carbon fiber chassis. But now that Windows 10 is just over two weeks away from its retail launch, HP is preparing another SKU for its EliteBook Folio 1020 series. This time around, HP is adding some audio enhancements to its ultrabook. Since the addition of Beats speakers is out of the question now that Apple owns the rights to the... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard’s popular Pavilion x2 hybrid has received a pretty thorough makeover in anticipation of July 29 release of Windows 10. Like before, the Pavilion x2 features a 10-inch tablet which can be docked with an included keyboard. However, HP has updated the design of Pavilion x2 with a magnetic latch connector that allows the user to easily attach and detach the keyboard. The tablet alone weighs 1.29 pounds, while the weight nearly doubles to 2.48 pounds with the keyboard attaches. The tablet itself is 9.65mm thick, and swells to 16.75mm with the keyboard attached. Under the hood, you’ll... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard first released its rather unorthodox Sprout PC back in late October with a price tag of $1,899. The device featured a 23-inch touch screen display that was topped with an overhead DLP projector which beams content down to a 20-inch, 20-point capacitive touch-sensitive mat. And if that doesn’t sound complex enough, there’s also Intel’s highly capable Real Sense 3D camera and a HP’s high-resolution 14.6MP camera thrown in for good measure. When this delightful mix of hardware is working in concert, you can use the mat as a touch keyboard, scan in objects and manipulate them on the... Read more...
Nearly a year ago, HP unveiled its plans to build “The Machine”, a new type of computer that was going to open up a multi-billion dollar market and change the future of computing. Now, HP is simultaneously easing expectations while pointing to a still-impressive Machine that is on the near-horizon. Unfortunately, it seems that the memristor will not be a part of the machine – at least, not initially. When HP first announced The Machine, it portrayed the yet-to-be-built computer as being wildly powerful – more so than computers in existence at the time. One of the components that caught everyone’s... Read more...
Just a day after Microsoft announced system requirements for the upcoming Windows 10, HP assured customers that its current PC lineup is ready for the new operating system.  Microsoft recently confirmed that latest version of Windows will be available for PCs on July 29. Anyone using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will be eligible to upgrade free to Windows 10. The Start Menu is back in Windows 10.“Working closely with Microsoft on Windows 10, we designed our 2015 portfolio of products to be ready for Windows 10,” said HP Customer Experience and Portfolio Strategy manager Mike Nash in a blog post....

In April, HP flooded the market with a slew of back-to-school PC aimed at the mobile crowd. This week, HP has switched its attention to the school age children that prefer their PC in desktop form, despite the fact that the form-factor is losing favor in this demographic. HP’s refreshed desktop lineup for 2015 includes new Pavilion All-in-One, Pavilion Tower, ENVY Tower, and ENVY Phoenix Tower PCs. We’ll start off with the Pavilion AIOs which are available in 21.5-, 23-, and 27-inch display sizes; all with Full HD and IPS support. HP gives customers the choice of fourth generation Intel Celeron... Read more...
Wait, it’s back-to-school season already? I thought kids were still in school? Either my calendar is wrong or Hewlett-Packard is just way ahead of schedule with its 2015 line of back-to-school computers. The new laptops and convertibles encompass three different lines including the Pavilion x360, ENVY x360, and the venerable Pavilion notebook family. We’ll start off with the Pavilion x360 line which includes refreshed 11- and 13-inch models. The 11-inch model (HD display) features a fanless design and can be equipped with Intel Pentium or Celeron processors. However, those craving a little bit... Read more...
Remember when tablets were supposed to render the PC market obsolete? Yeah, that may have been a slight overreaction by analysts to an emerging category that grew quickly due to the initial excitement, but now that the dust has settled, we can see just how unfounded those fears were. After all, another 68.5 million PCs were shipped and added to the tally in the first quarter of 2015 alone, with Lenovo leading the way. Sure, that represents 6.7 percent year-over-year decline in shipments, but we're still talking about tens of millions of PCs in a single quarter, 14.2 million of which landed in the... Read more...
