Forget everything you know about workstations, or at least dismiss the preconceived notion that systems serving up server grade power are typically as big as they are powerful. That might have been the case before, but HP just turned the sector upside down by introducing its Z2 Mini, a relatively tiny box measuring 2.3 inches high by 8.5 inches long and wide. HP is billing the Z2 Mini as the industry's first mini workstation. We won't argue that claim—at just 2.3 inches high, the Z2 Mini is 90 percent smaller than a traditional business-class tower desktop. Or put another way, this thing is shorter... Read more...

After a few delays that put the flagship Windows 10 Mobile flagship behind schedule, the Hewlett-Packard Elite x3 is finally available for customers to purchase. Starting this week, Microsoft opened up sales for the powerful smartphone via the Microsoft Store. Given the laundry list of features that are included with the Elite x3, this is by far the most powerful and versatile Windows 10 Mobile device released to date. Just look at its feature set, which wouldn’t be out of place on a flagship Android device: 5.96-inch WQHD AMOLED display Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor 4GB RAM 64GB internal storage...

Hewlett-Packard is already gearing up for the holiday shopping season, and the company has four new products that it is unleashing on the public. They include the second generation Spectre x360 convertible, the ENVY Laptop, ENVY AIO 27 and the ENVY 27 Display. We’ll kick things off with the Spectre x360, which is now sporting 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. Thanks to the more efficient Core processors and a larger 57.8 Whr battery, the Spectre x360 can now last 25 percent longer per charge, bringing total runtime to 15 hours. HP has also made the bezels even smaller by trimming... Read more...
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) definitely has a lot of pull in the tech industry. Within 24 hours, the EFF’s public call-out of HP’s decision to brick third-party ink cartridges in customers’ printers has generated a sincere apology. HP Inc. Chief Operating Officer Jon Flaxman issued the apology in a blog posting, but not before explaining the company’s reasoning for bringing the ban hammer down on the ink cartridges in the first place. “We updated a cartridge authentication procedure in select models of HP office inkjet printers to ensure the best consumer experience and protect them...

Printers can be so inconvenient. Most are big, bulky, stationary, and sometimes downright obstinate. HP, however, has just released the Sprocket -- a pocket-sized printer that can easily print 2" x 3" photos from a smartphone. The Sprocket is 4.53 x 2.95 x 0.87 inches and weighs just 0.379 pounds. It comes with up to 512MB of onboard storage along with Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC connectivity. The Sprocket incorporates a two-cell 500 mAh Li-Polymer 7.4 V battery and takes roughly 90 minutes to charge. The print quality is 313 x 400 dpi and the device supports .jpeg, .tiff (iOS only), .gif, .bmp,... Read more...
Over the weekend, we reported that Hewlett-Packard had made the unsavory move of essentially bricking scores of third-party ink cartridges that were in use in customers’ printers. HP’s rather brazen move was easy to track down since it programmed its printer firmware to throw up an error message on September 13th, meaning that thousands of customers experienced ink cartridge failures at the exact same time. HP is now coming clean about its move that had angered some customers. The company released a statement to the Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (NOS), which is part of the Netherlands Public Broadcasting... Read more...

The agreement was presented at Samsung Electronics’ Board of Directors meeting in Seoul, South Korea. Dion Weisler, president and CEO of HP, remarked, “When we became a separate company just 10 months ago, it enabled us to become nimble and focus on accelerating growth and reinventing industries...The acquisition of Samsung’s printer business allows us to deliver print innovation and create entirely new business opportunities with far better efficiency, security,...

Mainstream notebooks, laptops, and convertible devices have been significantly refined over the last few generations. The $500-$900 price range generally features laptops that are thin and light, built well, have decent battery life, and deliver solid multimedia experiences. Intel has a stranglehold on the CPUs and graphics in many of these mid-level systems, so PC makers seem to be emphasizing design differences lately. As important as performance is, you may well choose your next laptop because it converts into a mode or use case that fits your needs, rather than because of its technical specifications....

AMD has begun shipping its newly minted 7th Generation APUs known as "Bristol Ridge" to its hardware partners, the company announced this week. The new APUs will be integrated into systems built by several different OEM vendors, with HP and Lenovo getting first dibs, followed by others that will pair the processors with AMD's new AM4 platform. Bristol Ridge brings faster compute and graphics performance than previous generation APUs, with AMD claiming up to a 99 percent advantage in gaming graphics compared to Intel's Skylake chips. Graphics performance has traditionally been a strong suit of Intel's... Read more...
If you’ve been itchin’ to get your fingers on Hewlett-Packard’s brand new Elite X3 Windows 10 Mobile flagship, you’re going to have to wait a little while longer. According to the product listing on the Microsoft Store, the shipping date for the Elite X3 has been delayed two weeks to September 16th.

HP is breathing new life into its enthusiast Omen branding that hearkens back to the glory days of Voodoo PC, a former boutique system builder it acquired a decade ago. The newest item to sport the Omen logo—and one of the few in HP's history—is the Omen X, a diamond-shaped desktop that separates the main components into individual chambers for superior cooling. It's a unique looking desktop, though there's a purpose to its eye-catching layout. Traditional tower desktops consist of five exposed sides with the PC resting on its sixth side. But with the Omen X, the diamond-shaped configuration is... Read more...
