Update 9/19/2016 - 12:19PM - This story, and the allegations that HP intentionally hamstrings remanufactured cartridges, has been confirmed. In fact, HP makes no bones about it as well. The company admits this and cites specific reasons for doing so. You can read more about the situation here. If you use an inkjet printer on a regular basis, probably one of the most loathed aspects of ownership is replacing the ink cartridges when they run out. While the initial purchase price of an inkjet printer is relatively low in the grand scheme of things, the cost of the replacement ink cartridges... Read more...
HP just made a rather large acquisition -- the company announced that it is purchasing Samsung’s printer business for $1.05 billion.

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....

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.

A lot of companies claim to "reinvent" things, and to be honest, it's an overused term. But, after taking a look at HP's latest desktop PCs, the Pavilion Wave and Elite Slice, you might just find HP's claim to "reinvent" the desktop an apt one. The Elite Slice is a compact PC that's designed to look good while packing in what it takes to get work done efficiently. Intel Core i7 35W processor models will be featured in this PC, so performance should not be an issue. This PC is modular for the sake of expansion. You can purchase a $109 Audio Module which pleasures you aurally with a 360° Bang &... Read more...

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...
Google may be lighting up the education market with Chromebooks, but that isn’t stopping Microsoft and its partners from introducing low-cost Windows-based devices in response. This time around, Hewlett-Packard is hoping to raise a few eyebrows with its revamped “Stream” PC lineup. The new Stream family consists of three models: two notebooks and one convertible. The first offering is the new Stream 11, which as its name implies features an 11.6-inch anti-glare display (1366x768), measures just 18mm thin, and weighs in at 2.57 pounds. It’s powered by an Intel Celeron N3060 processor paired with... Read more...

Over the weekend, pricing for Hewlett-Packard’s Elite X3 Windows 10 Mobile smartphone leaked onto the web. The smartphone was listed at $799, which is a princely sum for a Windows 10 Mobile device. However, HP clarified things this morning with official pricing for the Elite X3. The $799 price tag is for the Elite X3 smartphone paired with the Desk Dock. If you just want the smartphone by itself, the price is a more palatable $699. However, even at $699, that’s still a lot of money for a flagship Windows 10 Mobile device. For comparison, Microsoft’s Lumia 950 XL launched late last year for $649... Read more...
Remember the Elite X3 phablet HP revealed at Computex earlier this year? It looked like a promising handset, albeit one that's based on an operating system that's struggling to grab any kind of meaningful market share (Windows 10 Mobile). The stylish Elite X3 with its large size 5.96-inch QWHD AMOLED display seem poised to make a splash, only HP may be pricing it out of contention. For a brief period, the Elite X3 made an appearance on HP's online storefront in the U.S. where it was listed for—brace yourself—$799! Phew, it's a good thing HP didn't decide to charge a dollar more, because $800 seems... Read more...
The race to build the world's thinnest laptop hasn't always resulted in quality design innovation or utility over more full-figured machines. For example, comparatively, Apple's MacBook Air line looks a little plain-Jane versus some of the nicer thin and light laptops on the market these days, and certainly HP's Spectre line as well. HP recently saw fit to fully revamp its Spectre series across multiple sizes and formats, the latest of which is simply branded Spectre. The HP Spectre is actually a 13-inch machine, so you might refer to it as such (Spectre 13), if it helps you make the distinction.... Read more...
