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 beast, which is of course factory unlocked and subject to your overclocking obsessions. The chassis... Read more...
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 to training new employees. The HP VR Backpack G1 Workstation is both a cordless wearable PC and a desktop... 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, vice president and general manager, Consumer Personal Systems, Displays & Accessories at HP....

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 8 cores and 16 threads with base and boost clocks of 3.4GHz and 3.8GHz respectively. If Ryzen... Read more...
With the Chinese dominating the charts when it comes to the world’s most powerful supercomputers, the United States is looking to leverage its homegrown talent to usher in next-generation exascale computing. The Department of Energy (DOE) Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is funding six of the country’s top chip firms in order to ensure U.S. leadership in the field. Those companies include AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, IBM and Cray. The six companies will have access to $258 million in funds that will be dispersed over a three-year-period. According to DOE, the funds will be used by the six companies to boost research and development in hardware technology, software technology... Read more...
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, is the VR Backpack PC accessory for the OMEN X that allows you to take your high-powered gaming...

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 the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem), all-day battery life (afforded by the efficient ARM-based Snapdragon...

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 mode. The full-size premium keyboard is also constructed out of aluminum and is complemented by a glass... Read more...
It looks as though Hewlett-Packard has a new 2-in-1 convertible alternative waiting in the wings if you’ve been disappointed with the longish life-cycle of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4. HP today announced the Elite x2 1012 G2, which appears to have many of the feature that Surface Pro 4 owners have been looking for in a replacement device. For starters, the MIL-SPEC tested Elite x2 1012 G2 is available with Kaby Lake Core i5 and Core i7 processors, which can be paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR3-1866 RAM. You can configure up to 512GB of storage via either a M.2 SATA or M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (we should mention that the Surface Pro 4 tops out at 1TB). HP, however, doesn’t skimp out on the Gorilla Glass...

Catering to the creative professional, HP today unveiled both a gorgeous new Cinema 4K display, as well as a slew of mobile workstations - all of which are certifiably HOT. At the forefront, HP's DreamColor Z31x Studio Display is a 31.1" display equipped with a proper Cinema 4K resolution (4096x2160) and a ton of treats for those who use their displays for work. The display sports a 10-bit panel, with a luminance rating of 250 cd/m2 - typical of displays used for photography and video content. One of the best features of the DreamColor Z31x is that it has a built-in calibrator, allowing you to get the right color for your work without the need of an external peripheral. Color is really the... Read more...
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 USB 3.0 ports, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, an SDXC reader, GbE and HDMI.ZBook Studio When it comes to...

HP is not one to let the weeds grow under its feet, at least not when it comes to its Spectre x360 line. The company it has no problem changing things up in an effort to keep its premium ultraportable hip and trendy. Having already gone through a few mild wardrobe changes over the past few years, the newest iteration of the Spectre x360 brings another slightly different look than last year's model -- one that is perhaps more refined and mature. It retains the gold accents introduced by its predecessor, but does not flaunt them quite as loudly. Other upgrades are not as subtle. HP continues to offer the Spectre x360 in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch form factors, the latter of which we're reviewing... Read more...
Don’t be fooled by the form factor and your initial impressions -- what we have before us is not a typical smartphone. Well, technically we suppose it is, but the experience is not intended to replace your commonplace iPhone, Galaxy S, or other handset. In fact, you should not even consider running to your nearest wireless carrier to pick one up. No, instead HP is billing the Elite x3 as a corporate device flexible enough to eliminate company-issued laptops and workstations for many users. This sounds like quite a tall order. Certainly, many professionals do rely on powerful number crunching machines. This isn’t aimed at dual-Xeon monstrosities -- at least not yet. For a majority of business... 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 the workforce. They want sexy mobile devices that meet their on-the-go work styles and IT needs these... 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. Stackoverflowin’ revealed to Bleeping Computer that he has gone on a tirade for the past 24 hours via... 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 are concerned - and it's an important topic regardless of the brand of printing device you're...

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 being sold online or through brick and mortar retail locations. HP is taking this latest recall very... 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 drops. In HP’s own testing, the convertible was able to survive drops from up to 30 inches on... Read more...
Forget everything you know about workstations, or at least dismiss the preconceived notion that systems serving up server grade power are typically as big as they are powerful. That might have been the case before, but HP just turned the sector upside down by introducing its Z2 Mini, a relatively tiny box measuring 2.3 inches high by 8.5 inches long and wide. HP is billing the Z2 Mini as the industry's first mini workstation. We won't argue that claim—at just 2.3 inches high, the Z2 Mini is 90 percent smaller than a traditional business-class tower desktop. Or put another way, this thing is shorter than a cup of espresso, HP points out. The Z2 Mini isn't small just for the sake of boasting a... Read more...

HP is expanding its portfolio of wearable products by teaming up with Movado Group to release a line of high-end analog smartwatches. These luxury watches will make use of the former's Engineered by HP smart platform and will span the latter's licensed watch brand portfolio, including Coach, HUGO BOSS, Juicy Couture, Tommy Hilfiger, and Scuderia Ferrari. You might not be aware, but HP has a small Wearables division.

This latest effort will see HP's smart platform paired with several... Read more...
