Microsoft may have dazzled the masses yesterday with the announcement of the Surface Book 2 family (which is available in two screen sizes the time around), but Hewlett-Packard is aiming squarely at creative professionals with its new ZBook x2. HP bills the device as the "world's most powerful and first detachable PC workstation". If you look at the ZBook x2's specs, you can see why HP has come to this conclusion. At its heart, the ZBook x2 has a 14-inch 4K display, with optional 10-bit HP DreamColor support reaching 100 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut. The tablet comes with a full-size aluminum...

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...
Hewlett-Packard is expanding its popular Omen family of gaming PCs and peripherals to a new segment: laptops. The company just announced the beastly Omen X Laptop, weighing in at a punishing 10.69 pounds; although HP isn’t expecting gamers to be lugging this beauty around on a daily basis. In addition to its portly weight, the Omen X Laptop also has rather beefy dimensions, coming in at 16.73 x 12.88 x 1.43 inches. However, that generous frame has allowed HP to cram some deliciously potent hardware into the system. For starters, there’s an Intel Skylake Core i7-7820HK processor to fuel this gaming...

VR and AR are two of the biggest growth areas in computing today. So far, much of that growth has been focused on gaming, like the new Lenovo and Disney tie up for Star Wars AR content. The future will also see wider use of VR and AR in the workplace. To support this business use of VR hardware, HP has announced a new wearable computer called the HP Z VR Backpack PC. The wearable VR rig is designed from the ground up to break workers free of wires and tethers so they can move around crowded locations without restrictions. The systems are meant for all sorts of business uses from demonstrations... Read more...
Depending on where you live, it is just a matter of weeks before school is once again in session. In preparation for the back-to-school shopping season that for many has already begun, HP has gone and revamped its Pavilion all-in-one (AIO) lineup with new digs and upgraded components. And rather than focus on a single task, the retooled systems can be flexibly configured to tackle a variety of subjects, even gaming. "We listened to our customers when redesigning the HP Pavilion All-in-One to ensure we’re bringing features consumers crave, making it the perfect overall family PC," said Kevin Frost,...

Yesterday, AMD announced its new Ryzen PRO family of processors, which feature the multi-core performance muscle of the Zen microarchitecture along with built-in security features. AMD has already begun shipping the new processors to its OEM partners, and one of the first to deploy Ryzen PRO will be Hewlett-Packard via its EliteDesk 705 G3 workstation family. HP is making it easy to choose a system that fits your performance (and budgetary) needs by offering the full lineup of Ryzen PRO processors ranging from the lowly Ryzen 3 PRO 1200 on up to the incredibly potent Ryzen 7 PRO 1700X, which features...

Hewlett-Packard introduced us to its new OMEN gaming PC lineup last year, and today that family is receiving a number of updates for those that like Intel Core i7 and AMD Ryzen power along with GeForce GTX 10-Series and Radeon RX graphics. First up is the OMEN X Compact Desktop, which is the company’s latest small form-factor offering. Despite is small stature, the OMEN X can be configured with unlocked Intel Core i7 processors (Kaby Lake) and comes equipped with an overclocked GeForce GTX 1080 GPU to fuel your 4K gaming sessions or virtual reality experiences.OMEN X What’s most interesting, however,...

Microsoft turned a lot heads late last year when it announced that Windows 10 would soon offer native support for ARM processors. More specifically, that support has only been extended to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon family of SoCs (System on Chip), which are typically reserved for smartphones and tablets. Today, Qualcomm announced that it has signed up three major OEMs to deliver mobile PCs using the Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform. ASUS, HP and Lenovo have all committed to delivering new computing experiences later this that will come with standard gigabit-class LTE (courtesy of...

If you’re a business user that needs high-end workstation-class components in a mobile form-factor, Hewlett-Packard has updated its ZBook family of laptops to deliver best-in-class performance. HP claims that its four new ZBook laptops will be able to empower everyone from filmmakers to artists to engineers. The star of the show is the ZBook Studio, which comes with a 15.6-inch DreamColor 4K UHD display (supports 100 percent of the Adobe RGB gamut), measures just 18mm thick and weighs in at 4.4 pounds. HP also provides plenty of connectivity options for professionals (take note, Apple) with three... Read more...
For many professionals, today's work environment entails a fair bit of traveling. The mobile workforce is growing and to keep up with the trend, HP on Sunday announced the Pro x2 612 G2 (just Pro x2 from here on out), a "dynamic new commercial detachable" designed for professionals who want a stylish device that's easy to use, and one that is also suitable for work chores in field services, government, healthcare, and other professional sectors requiring enterprise-class security. "Today, more than 60 percent of millennials work from more than one location and by 2020 they will be a majority of... Read more...
  Just yesterday, we posted a story concerning printer security and how we should take it more seriously given IoT botnets that are swooping across the globe (namely Mirai), along with the sensitive data and documents these machines are custodians of. Today’s printers have relatively potent processors, complex operating systems and of course connect to the internet, to enable remote printing and firmware updates (among other things). Unsurprisingly, though the timing is impeccable, a hacker by the name of Stackoverflowin’ just made the case for increased security with it comes to printers.... Read more...
Take a look at your printer. Give it a good stare. Do you trust it? Probably not, considering it jammed the last time you had to print an important paper right up against a deadline. However, what if we told you that your printer just has to sit there on your network to be a very serious security problem? HP Inc. recently hosted a tech field day for us, and several other security-focused journalists, at their headquarters in Palo Alto. We will speak to some of the panels we listened in on as we go, but the goal for HP at this event was to raise awareness around security - particularly where printers... Read more...
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...
