Dude, your getting a... HP? That's right, for the first time in three years Hewlett-Packard has passed Dell in world PC shipments. As Yahoo! News reports, HP's computer shipments have jumped 15% from a year ago, while Dell has only gained 4% in total shipments. From questionable deals to battery recalls, both companies have had their share of problems in the last year. Nevertheless, both companies are still doing well, and you can bet Dell will be working hard to regain the top spot in world PC sales. "It marks the first time since 2003's final quarter that HP - now the world's largest technology company - has held the top... Read more...
In what could be one of the most surprising events in the industry the last few years, we are hearing news from the gang at Gizmodo that none other than HP has purchased Voodoo PC. Much like the scenario where Dell bought Alienware, HP will leverage the IP and customer base from the boutique PC vendor Voodoo PC. Unfortunately, we don't know many details at this time though you can be sure this will be all over the web shortly should it prove true. Like when Alienware was abducted by Dell, we're dumbstuck by this buy. Voodoo PC, my personal favorite maker of exotic gaming rigs, just got snatched up by HP. Rahul and Ravi, you were rich before, but man, are we going... Read more...
Last Tuesday it was reported that Hewlett-Packard was having an ongoing internal investigation over who was leaking information to the press, and the source was assumed to be one of the company's directors. CNet news is now reporting that HP may have illegally accessed the phone records of the companies directors, as well as a few journalists, and possibly others. With the current turmoil going on, HP Chairman Patricia Dunn has announced her resignation from the post, with current CEO and President Mark Hurde to take over. "Dunn's departure caps a tumultuous episode for HP, one of the country's largest companies and a Silicon Valley... Read more...

Since the release of this quarter's financial earnings, there has been some criticism towards Dell for their stinging 51% decline in quarterly profits. On the other hand, Hewlett-Packard posted stronger than expected earnings, raising its earnings per share for the fourth quarter in a row. Is it just "aggressive pricing" on Dell's part, or is Dell in need of a strategy change? "Three years ago, people thought nothing could stop Dell, that it was unstoppable. It was the strongest company in the world, and HP, they were dead. This was a company that was broken, it couldn't be fixed," said Shaw Wu, an analyst at American... Read more...
The Toughpower series is Thermaltake's premium line of power supplies, aimed at the enthusiast crowd. With models starting at 600W, they should be able to handle even extreme applications with ease. The guys over at PC Perspective have a nice review of the flagship model, the Thermaltake Toughpower 750W. "If you are in the market for a power supply in the 600~750 watt range, one of the new Thermaltake Toughpower units deserve a close look. The 750W model exhibited very good voltage regulation and stability and was quiet, especially while operating under moderate loads.

Over the past few years, the need for a quality power supply has scaled well with the flow of new hardware. With Overclocking is as popular as ever, stable PSUs are in full demand, and here to answer the call is Thermaltake with their new ToughPower series. "Today, I'm looking at Thermaltake's yet to be available ToughPower 550W power supply. You might ask what's the big deal? Let's say you already have a PurePower / PowerStation ~500W model. While the amount of Watts may be enough, your new components may require more stable voltages and higher amperage (strength of an electrical current). As the name implies, ToughPower is all about stability."... Read more...
Budget priced notebooks make a lot of sense for a multitude of people. The simple fact is, we all don't need to game. And not all of us need the most powerful computer on the planet. Plus, parting with a handful of greenbacks isn't the easiest thing to do when there are bills to be paid. So, it's no wonder that budget notebooks from Dell and Compaq / HP continue to sell like hotcakes. While HP's ZE2000 turned out to be a good budget solution, with the 855GM and Pentium-M duo at its heart, the new ZE2000Z we'll be looking at here brings an AMD processor and ATI chipset with IGP to the table...

Now that we've got the IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad X41 Tablet PC review under our belts, we are going to backtrack a bit to take a look at the HP/Compaq TC4200. Although the IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC hit the HotHardware lab first, the HP/Compaq TC4200 was actually introduced before the X41. These two Tablet PCs are targeted at slightly different audiences, however. The HP/Compaq TC4200 is a quasi-ultraportable, rather than being a true "ultraportable," and as such, this is a mobile PC aimed at the professional user...

Hey folks, I'm in a bit of a rush at the moment, so please excuse the lack of chat as I get right to the news. Oh, wait! Before you check out the articles below, if your one of the lucky people to own a 7800GTX, well a Leadtek 7800GTX that is, then make sure to head on over to their download page and get the new 7800 GTX bios that increases the core to 450MHz and the memory to 625MHz(Thanks Bjorn3d). Heh, so much for the lack of chat :) Enjoy! AMD vs. Intel; The Legal Challenge @ CoolTechZone "Yesterday it turned out to be the most widely anticipated day in the microprocessor realm.

  When it comes to mainstream notebooks, the big three: Dell, HP/Compaq, and IBM still lead the pack in regard to overall notebook price, design, quality, and service. Of course, the enthusiast notebook vendors still get to set some interesting aesthetic and performance trends, but Dell and HP (Dell more so) have been picking up on the DTR market rather fast; take the Dell Inspiron XPS and the Inspiron XPS Gen 2. As you probably know by now, IBM has made arrangements to sell off its PC group to China-based Lenovo, which includes IBM's ThinkPad brand. With that sale almost final, it is probably going to mean that Dell and HP will have an opportunity to win over a few more of us that are focused... Read more...
Good morning and happy Friday to all.  Today starts off Memorial Day weekend here in the states.  For starters that automatically means a three day weekend and a boatload of traffic on the highways.  It also is a sign that summer is rapidly approaching.  Traditionally this is a time of year where families get together, barbeque and enjoy some cold beverages.  But most of all, we take the time to remember the men and women who served this great country by giving their lives in battle.  Something we should never forget, especially today when we have troops doing their job in both Iraq and Afghanistan.  Here's you news...

   The HighPoint RocketRAID 404 (HPT374) 4 Channel PCI IDE RAID Controller... By, Marco Chiappetta October 10, 2002 Over the past few years, one of the most prolific integrated accessories found on high-end consumer class motherboards has got to be an IDE RAID controller. Virtually every OEM from Abit to Soyo now ship motherboards that are outfitted with a RAID controller.  These integrated solutions give users the ability to inexpensively boost drive throughput, or ensure data security by "striping" or "mirroring" their data across multiple drives.  They also give users the ability to simply plug more IDE devices into their motherboards.  If you look...

Abit's SA6R - i815E With Highpoint ATA100 RAID Controller The i815E board with an attitude and a 1GHz. Flip Chip to back it up By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 11/1/00   Motherboards mature, like fine wine as the months go on, after a new chipset is released.  Intel has had the highly anticipated i815E integrated chipset out for a few months now and the Motherboard Manufacturers are really beginning to polish their product line offerings based on this chipset. At first, we saw some pretty straight forward designs with not too many frills or extras beyond the i815E's well rounded feature set.  Now things are starting to get a little more exotic when it comes to i815E boards and...
