After giving us a few ASUS laptop deals, Microsoft’s “12 Days of Deals” promotion is throwing Hewlett-Packard a bone with a $130 discount on the HP Pavilion x2 10-k077nr Signature Edition 2-in-1 PC (sheesh, try saying that three times really fast).

It might bear a slight resemblance to Apple’s popular (and long in the tooth) MacBook Air range, but Hewlett-Packard’s new EliteBook Folio 1020 series brings a lightweight frame, business-class functionality, and Windows 8.1 to the table. HP is actually announcing two models today: the standard EliteBook 1020 and the EliteBook 1020 Special Edition (SE).

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?

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...

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.

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.

It looks like HP has decided to take a page from the retail guidebook, as it's teasing us with some holiday-targeted product well before the holiday season could even be considered "close'. This product comes to us in the form of five notebooks, with three targeting the low-end part of the spectrum, and the other two skirting the $1,000 price-point. Let's start with the Chromebooks, both of which start at under $300. The 11-inch model starts at $279.99, and provides a screen resolution of 1366x768. Under the hood is an Intel Celeron N2830, a dual-core model clocked at 2.16GHz (2.41GHz w/ Turbo).... Read more...

Microsoft is lowering its license fees to help manufacturers like HP produce low-cost Windows notebooks that can take on Google’s Chromebooks. With systems expected to arrive in time for the holidays, you’re probably going to have a lot of options for updating the kids’ old notebooks. Word of Microsoft’s play for the margin-slim low-end comes from Kevin Turner, chief operating officer at Microsoft, who discussed the move during the... Read more...
Once a revered giant in the tech world, HP has floundered in recent years. With a new CEO in Meg Whitman, though, the company has taken steps to reassert itself in various marketplaces, but no effort is as bold or as risky as its current endeavor: HP is trying to completely revolutionize computing from the ground up with something it’s calling “The Machine”. When we say “ground up”, we mean that HP is working on a different operating system than currently exists and new memory and data transfer technologies, according to Businessweek. HP CTO Martin Fink holding the... Read more...
