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....

HP wants you to like what you hear, so it’s partnering with Bang & Olufsen to improve the sound in many of its upcoming tablets, notebooks, and desktop PCs. “In all HP devices that carry the Bang & Olufsen or B&O Play brand, a dedicated audio island isolates the sensitive audio circuits from other signals on the motherboard,” HP said in a statement today. “The headphone jack limits the amount of metal parts to reduce ground noise to help further perfect the audio experience on HP devices.”We recently reviewed the HP Omen with Beats Audio. Expect to see Bang & Olfusen branding on... Read more...
Good deals come and go, but great ones are pretty rare. That's what makes Microsoft's HP Stream 7 pricing so special -- it's just $79.99 at the Microsoft Store, down $20 (or 20 percent) from its regular selling price of $99.99, though the price cut alone doesn't make this a great deal. It's the extras that put it over the top.Let's start with the tablet itself. This is the HP Stream 7 Signature Edition, which is a 7-inch Windows 8.1 with Bing (32-bit) tablet with an IPS touchscreen display (1280x800), Intel Atom Z3735G processor, 1GB RAM, 32GB solid state drive, microSD card slot, 802.11n Wi-Fi...

Few names are as meaningful and recognizable in the gaming sector as Rahul Sood. From VoodooPC to HP to Razer and Microsoft, Sood has become a bit of an icon in each place that he has eventually wound up. Now, he's taking his talents from the incubator labs of Microsoft to something more uncertain: a new startup gaming company. Rahul is an entrepreneur at heart and came from startup roots with VoodooPC, pioneering in some respects, for the build-to-spec enthusiast PC industry that has flourished ever since. In a goodbye post on Sood's blog, he commends Microsoft for a job well done, expressing... Read more...
Who says Alienware and other custom-spec builders are the only games in town when it comes to high-end mobile gaming rigs? HP has just introduced the OMEN, which is about as radical as the name implies. It's a gaming laptop that skews to the skinny side, but maintains plenty of raw horsepower underneath. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 860M and Intel's Core i7 Quad Core processor runs the show, alongside a 15.6-inch 1080p display that's touch-enabled. HP also states that the display is "optimized for smooth frame rates" and offers a 72-percent color gamut. The baseline rig is equipped with a 128GB SSD, while... Read more...
Back in late September, HP unveiled its affordable "Stream" line of Windows notebooks and tablets with expected availability in early November. Well, we're into the first week of November now, and as promised, you can hop on the web and order a Stream 11 or Stream 13 laptop with Windows 8.1 at a rock bottom price. How low? The HP Stream 11 runs $200 and the HP Stream 13 costs $30 more for the luxury of a bigger display (13.3-inch versus 11.6-inch, both with a 1366x768 resolution) and optional 200MB of free 4G data each month with no annual contract for the life of the device. Otherwise, these systems... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard isn't reverting back to Hewlett and Packard, but the heralded technology company is indeed splitting up this week. HP will become two companies, both of which will be publicly traded Fortune 50 businesses. One will be made up of HP's enterprise technology, while the other will be comprised of its PC and printing businesses (that's the one that'll keep the current HP logo and name). Immediately following the transaction, which is expected to be completed by the end of fiscal 2015, HP shareholders will own shares of both Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP Inc. Today’s announcement... Read more...
All vendors take note -- the secret to success is price. It wasn't until Android tablets undercut the iPad on cost of ownership that they found an audience, and the reason Chromebooks are selling so well is because they're cheap, not because they're preferred over Windows laptops. Hewlett-Packard is one of the first OEMs to figure this out, as evidenced by its new like of affordable Stream laptops and tablets. Just don't expect HP to come right out and say it so bluntly -- rather than tout price, the OEM is pitching style and the allure of Windows. "Today’s consumers demand mobile products... Read more...
ARM continues to make headway into territories typically occupied by AMD and in particular Intel. Namely, the server market. Giving ARM a boost in the enterprise segment, Hewlett-Packard today announced two ARM-based servers, one of which is the first enterprise-class 64-bit ARM-based server. In addition, HP is making available a production-ready platform for software developers to build, test, and port applications to the 64-bit ARM based server. "ARM technology will change the dynamics of how enterprises build IT solutions to quickly address customer challenges," said Antonio Neri, senior vice... Read more...
EMC, a player in the IT data storage field and headquartered in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, is trying to decide what direction to go in once its Chief Executive Officer Joe Tucci steps down early next year. Under pressure from hedge fund Elliott Management Corp., which now has a big stake in the company, EMC is once again considering a merger with rival Hewlett-Packard. This isn't the first time EMC has entertained the idea of merging with HP. The two sides have been engaging in talks throughout the past year, though nothing has materialized. Given the pressure its under, EMC may once again chat... Read more...
HP is smarting from a $108 million fine today, thanks to a guilty plea it entered in a San Francisco federal court. HP and its subsidiaries were accused of paying bribes to officials and businesses in Mexico, Poland, and Russia to buy lucrative contracts. The fine wraps up the settlement, which was announced in April. HP has since jettisoned the people it believes were involved in the bribes. HP Z1 Workstaion The bribes reportedly involved contracts with a police agency and an oil company, among other foreign government-controlled organizations. HP was accused of making payments – sometimes... Read more...
