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...
If you're shopping a new system, the launch of Intel's Ivy Bridge platform can't come soon enough. In anticipation of the launch, Hewlett-Packard is getting its ducks in a row, which includes quietly revealing three new notebooks built around Intel's upcoming platform, as well as a fourth sporting Sandy Bridge hardware inside. The first is an HP Pavilion dv4-5000 with an Intel Core i7 3610QM processor clocked at 2.3GHz. Details are fairly light, but we know it's a 14-inch laptop with a 1TB hard drive (5400 RPM) and Nvidia GeForce GT 630M graphics. Then there's the HP Pavilion dv6-7000, a 15.6-inch... Read more...
HP is expanding its lineup of consumer PCs and commercial displays with the introduction of the HP Omni27 PC, HP Pavilion HPE h9 Phoenix PC, HP Compaq L2311c notebook docking monitor, and the HP LV1911 and LV2011 LED backlit LCD monitors. The new Omni27 PC is the company's first 27-inch all-in-one PC while the Pavilion HPE h9 Phoenix PC is the most powerful HP Pavilion PC to date with discrete graphics cards, up to 16GB of DDR3 memory, and three internal hard drive bays. For mobile users, HP introduced the Compaq L2311c notebook docking monitor which connects to your notebook via USB and features... 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).

Another month, another wave of new notebooks from HP. Today, the PC powerhouse has expanded their consumer and business lines with 11 new models, all of which utilize AMD's new VISION technology. That's an affordable line with plenty of punch for most people -- the A-series APU is a step above Fusion, and it's being used more and more frequently in smaller, lighter full-size notebooks. The HP Pavilion dv-series is seeing an across-the-board update, with the dv4, dv6 and dv7 getting CoolSense, True Vision HD webcam, and HP Beats Audio (on the dv6 and dv7 only). HP tells us that the DV-series offers... Read more...
Intel's Sandy Bridge is definitely the platform of the moment. Every notebook maker in existence is doing everything they can to get the newer chipsets into their machines, and while HP has already rolled SB out in a number of units, what's not to love about one more? The company has just made official the Pavilion G6s, a colorful new machine with a 15.6" (1366x768) display, and your choice of Core i3, i5 or i7 Sandy Bridge power. There's also 6GB of memory, a 750GB hard drive, optional AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics and your choice of four different colors. All of that's on the high end; if you'd... Read more...
Earlier in the month, HP announced a number of new business and consumer notebooks. Now, it's time for the company's desktop line to get a bump of their own. This evening, HP has revealed a newly refreshed line of desktop PCs, including redesigned Pavilion consumer desktops that have seriously stepped up in the style department. These machines have a glossy, black front panel layered over a metallic base, not to mention sliding front panels to hide ports, and select models have a valet tray integrated into the top and equipped with USB ports. You'll also find Beats Audio and HP LinkUp on select... Read more...
What began as a trickle -- as AMD finally introduced a shipping version of the long-awaited Fusion platform -- has turned into a steady stream, and we're definitely excited to see APUs, as AMD calls the product, finally making an impact. AMD had played up the idea of an Accelerated Processing Unit for years, and now, it's clearly a reality. Lenovo's ThinkPad X120e, which we reviewed a few months ago, instantly became one of our favorite ultraportables, and now HP has what appears to be a rival machine, of sorts. The HP Pavilion dm1z is an 11.6" machine, that is a touch larger than the myriad 10"... Read more...
At this point, there's no shame in saying it: the floodgates have opened up for AMD's Fusion.

HP announced a handful of updates to the Pavilion line of notebooks. First up are the HP Pavilion dv6 and dv7 notebooks, which feature second-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and optional AMD Radeon 6000M graphics. These notebooks will come with HP CoolSense Technology, USB 3.0, and on-board quad speakers. The Pavilion dv6 and dv7 feature 15.6- and 17.3-inch diagonal high-definition BrightView displays, respectively, and are available with an optional integrated Blu-ray disc player and a built-in HP TrueVision HD Webcam. Next up is the new HP Pavilion g-series which targets the everyday... Read more...
Don't ever accuse HP of not being on top of things. The computer company has just revealed quite a few new machines tonight, with a couple of them being firsts of their kind. Of course, a new line of notebooks wouldn't be a new line of notebooks without a bit of 3D mixed in, and the HP Envy 17 3D offers just that. It's the first 17" notebook to support 1080p 3D and Blu-ray, and that's just the beginning. Internally, this one features a Core i7 CPU, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 graphics and up to 2TB of storage. The HP Envy 14 Beats Edition is the same HP Envy 14 the world knows and loves, but with... Read more...
One for the business set, one for the gamer set. We like the style, HP. In order to not alienate one segment or another, Hewlett-Packard has decided to match their ProBook refresh today with a similar update on the gaming side. The company's Envy line, which evolved from their acquisition of Voodoo last decade, is seeing two serious new introductions today, while the Envy 13 of last year is leaving for good (it seems).The new Envy 14 and Envy 17 reflect the company's “MUSE” (materials, usability, sensory appeal and experiences) design philosophy of fusing a rich mix of materials that create textured...

We've heard that Intel may have a few new Atom processors on tap for release later this year, so it makes sense to see AMD propping up its own low-end, low-power lineup. Rather than unveil them alone, however, it seems as if Advanced Micro Devices is enlisting the assistance of Hewlett-Packard, as the newest Athlon Neo and Turion Neo processors are surfacing in the all-new Pavilion dv2z notebook.Beginning this week, consumers in the market for a new ultraportable can find the aforementioned machine on sale, and while the base configuration arrives with the Neo MV-40, you can opt to upgrade to the...
