Hewlett-Packard first released its rather unorthodox Sprout PC back in late October with a price tag of $1,899. The device featured a 23-inch touch screen display that was topped with an overhead DLP projector which beams content down to a 20-inch, 20-point capacitive touch-sensitive mat.

The sub-$200 category isn't the only place you'll find Chromebooks hanging around. For example, take witness of Hewlett-Packard's updated Chromebook 14.

All vendors take note -- the secret to success is price. It wasn't until Android tablets undercut the iPad on cost of ownership that they found an audience, and the reason Chromebooks are selling so well is because they're cheap, not because they're preferred over Windows laptops.

It looks like HP is wanting to flesh out its product line so that it has a little something for everyone, hence the launch of the HP SlateBook, a 14-inch laptop running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. That's right -- Android is the star of the show, not Chrome OS or Windows. Why Android? Perhaps HP is looking to test the market. After all, the OEM... Read more...

Remember when Hewlett-Packard tried to compete in premium tablet category? It didn't work out so well - not only did the company's TouchPad tumble in price, it was such a colossal flop that it sent webOS into a tailspin, which is too bad because we had high hopes of what HP could do with it after acquiring Palm. Fast... Read more...

We're not sure why Hewlett-Packard went into stealth mode on this one, but in any event, the OEM has quietly made available a reasonably equipped Android tablet for a penny shy of $170.

There's not a gadget in the world the folks at iFixIt can't tear into, though some are definitely easier to disassemble than others. Mobile devices like tablets and smartphones tend to be difficult to surgically operate on, and even some hybrid laptops can give users fits if there's a need to service or a replace a part. On the opposite end... Read more...
Once you hit your thirties, you begin to realize that the older you get, the better you used to be.

It's been a tough year for PC makers in general (Lenovo notwithstanding), some of which were caught off guard by the mainstream market's infatuation with mobile devices. There have been signs that traditional computer sales may rebound a bit in 2014, but in the meantime, at least one PC maker is looking at cutting... Read more...
It's fair to say that the smartphone market has grown too large to ignore, and with PC sales in a slump, expect to see some OEMs get more involved in the mobile market. One of those OEMs is Hewlett-Packard, the second biggest supplier of PCs in the world behind only Lenovo. While nothing is yet written in stone, a... Read more...

Jon Rubinstein, the former Chief Executive Officer of Palm, was willing to discuss the company's sale to Hewlett-Packard, and to say he may regret that decision is putting it lightly. Not only was it a bad decision on hindsight, but he called it a "waste" since HP ultimately ended up wiping its hands of webOS, the... Read more...
In case you haven't noticed, the line is becoming increasingly blurred between varying types of PCs that used to have a single purpose. Not anymore.
