Hewlett-Packed is putting a bit of polish on its Pavilion x360 family of 2-in-1 convertibles, which are available in 11.6-inch, 14-inch, and 15.6-inch form-factors. The new PCs will also be joined by a couple of new standalone displays. The smallest member of the family is the Pavilion x360 11, which features an 11.6-inch display (1366x768), a quad-core Intel Pentium Silver N5000 processor and 4GB of RAM, while a 128GB M.2 SSD and an available microSD slot handle all of your storage needs. The Pavilion x360 11 is all about portability, as witnessed by its relatively lightweight 2.67-lb frame. According to HP, the device can last over 10 hours on a charge. HP has included dual speakers tuned by... Read more...
It looks as though Geekbench is providing us with some pretty good insight on incoming Ryzen 3000 Series processor from AMD. However, these aren't the 7nm Zen 2 monsters that we've been talking about in recent weeks. Instead, the leaks pertain to upcoming Picasso APUs that pair 12nm FinFET Raven Ridge CPU architecture with Vega GPUs. We have to give a shout out to Hexus, which managed to track down three separate Geekbench listing for upcoming Hewlett-Packard notebooks. The three machines are as follows: HP Laptop 17-ca1xxx AMD Ryzen 5 3500U (2.1GHz) with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx 4 cores, 8 threads HP Laptop 17-ca1xxx AMD Ryzen 3 3300U (2.1GHz) with Radeon Vega...

Back in early April, Hewlett-Packed launched a revamped ZBook family of professional notebooks and convertibles available with Intel 8th generation Core and Xeon processors along with NVIDIA Quadro graphics. Today, HP has announced higher-performing versions of the ZBook Studio, ZBook Studio x360, ZBook 15a and ZBook 17. All of these machines are now available with 8th generation Core processors up to a Core i9-8950HK. Xeon processors also remain an option for those that require additional horsepower. As before, systems come configured with as little as 32GB of RAM or as much as 128GB, making these the ultimate mobile workstations.  In addition to shining a light on processor... Read more...
Yesterday, Hewlett-Packard announced its Spectre Folio, which the company envisions as a thorough rethink of the modern-day PC. The Spectre Folio takes on a 2-in-1 convertible form-factor and uses a combination of CNC-machined magnesium and aluminum along with high-quality, hand-crafted leather to create a true premium device. We were able to get our hands on the Spectre Folio at the event, and we must say, it looks just as good in person as it does in the official press images.  The leather really sets the convertible apart from the rest of the me-too designs in this segment, and actually serves as an integral part of hinge mechanism for the different operating modes. As we've... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard has come under increased scrutiny over the past week after it was uncovered that keylogging software was found in a Synaptics touchpad driver installed on its laptop computers. The keylogger was present in debugging code, and was thankfully disabled by default. However, an attacker with physical (or remote) access to a computer could have activated the keylogger by modifying a registry key for their own nefarious purposes. Security researcher Michael Myng was the first to discover the inactive keylogger while attempting modify the backlight levels on an HP laptop keyboard. It was during his investigation into the driver, SynTP.sys, that he came across the dormant code. Naturally,... Read more...
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), the flagship device used Continuum to turn into a [nearly] full-fledged Windows 10 desktop machine...

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 4GB of RAM. 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage can installed in the machine, and you'll find a smallish...

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 3TB of RAM via a staggering 24 DIMM slots. Since "dual" seems to be the name of the game today at... 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 mode. The full-size premium keyboard is also constructed out of aluminum and is complemented by a glass... 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 hardware specifications for developers,” Microsoft explains to developers. “We invite developers to...

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...
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 microSD slot that supports up to 2TB 16MP main camera, 8MP front camera, Iris camera 802.11ac...

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 10mm from the right and left sides of the display. Couple that with a thinner chassis (made possible... Read more...
