It appears that Hewlett-Packard has a bone to pick with Microsoft, and it's in regards to the latter's failed execution in the smartphone operating system space. While Microsoft had been the primary manufacturer of Windows 10 Mobile devices with its Lumia line, it had also recruited big name OEMs like HP to bring their own unique designs to the table. HP answered with the Elite X3 (read our full review here), which banked heavily on the Windows 10 Mobile Continuum experience. Featuring a 6-inch display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage (with microSD expansion),... Read more...
Earlier this year, Hewlett-Packard launched the Chromebook x360 11 G1 Education, which is quite a mouthful to say we might add. The rugged little device was designed to take punishment from unrelenting school children, and HP now feels that the convertible has the chops to make it in the mainstream consumer market. The device makes the transition with minimal changes, although we're proud to announce that it has a much simpler name this time around: Chromebook x360. Like its education-centric counterpart, the Chromebook x360 is powered by a dual-core Celeron N3350 processor that is paired up with... Read more...
We enthusiasts might boast about Core X-Series processors from Intel or Ryzen Threadripper chips from AMD; but for the professional workstation market, Intel's Xeon family of products have been laying waste to the competition for years. Hewlett-Packard is embracing the expanded Xeon family with its latest "Z" Workstations, which include the Z8, Z6 and Z4. As you might expect, the Z8 is the most powerful of the bunch, and can be equipped with everything but the kitchen sink when it comes to high-end processing power. The system can accommodate up to dual 28-core Xeon Platinum processors and up to... Read more...
It seems as though every PC OEM wants deliver a new “Surface killer”, and Hewlett-Packard is the latest to step up to the plate with its newly upgraded Spectre x2. The Spectre x2 is first and foremost a tablet that is dominated by its 12.3-inch 3000x2000 display (which is an upgrade from the previous 1920x1280 unit). The tablet is constructed of CNC-machined aluminum, and adds a premium touch with a copper kickstand. Versatility is the name of the game with the Spectre x2, and it is available with a detachable keyboard that connects magnetically, and will maintain its position in any operating... Read more...
If you’ve been itchin’ to get your hands on new [relatively] affordable mixed reality hardware designed for Windows 10 PCs, the wait is nearly over. Microsoft today at Build 2017 announced that preorders are open for Windows Mixed Reality headset dev kits from Hewlett-Packard and Acer. Both of the headsets use “inside-out tracking", negating the need for external cameras or IR emitters, and provide six degrees of freedom in mixed reality environments. “You’ll be ready to code new mixed reality experiences out of box with a headset and a Windows 10 Creator’s Update PC that meets our recommended...

Back in June 2016, Hewlett-Packard issued a recall of 41,000 batteries produced for laptops sold under both the HP and Compaq brand names. Today, HP announced that it is extending the recall to include an additional 101,000 batteries that were sold in laptops between March 2013 and October 2016. Like before, this recall affects laptops sold under both the HP and Compaq brand names, and includes the HP ProBook, HP ENVY, Compaq Presario, and HP Pavilion notebook families. The recall is currently in place for laptops that were sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico, with most of the laptops... Read more...
Hewlett-Packed is already a pretty big name in the education sector, but the company is looking to expand its position with the release of a new convertible aimed at accident-prone students. The ProBook x360 11 G1 Education Edition is being billed as the world’s thinnest rugged convertible, and we have no reason to discount HP’s claim. The ProBook x360 11 G1 was built to handle the worst that little tikes can dish at it thanks to its MIL-ST-810G rating, pick- and spill-resistant keyboard, Gorilla Glass 4 display covering, and industrial rubber-molded exterior which helps to absorb impact from repeated...

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...

Hewlett-Packard came under fire earlier this month when it was revealed that it was purposefully “bricking” third-party ink cartridges in customers’ printers. Customers were unaware that such trickery was even going on until printers around the globe starting throwing up error messages at the same time on September 13th. HP did acknowledge its actions, saying that its designed its printer firmware to “protect the printers and to protect the communication between the cartridge and the printer.” HP also stated that its actions were meant to “protect innovation and intellectual property, but also...

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...
If you’ve been itchin' to get your hands on Hewlett-Packard’s flagship Elite x3 Windows 10 Mobile smartphone, the wait is going to be just a bit longer — two weeks longer in fact. HP originally stated that the smartphone would ship on August 29th, however, the company is now revising that date to September 12th. This is according to a new listing via the Microsoft Store, which is only offering the Elite x3 with the bundled Desk Dock. This brings the total price of the bundle to $799 (the phone costs $699 without the dock direct from HP). Like Microsoft’s Display Dock for the Lumia 950 and Lumia... 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...
