Hewlett-Packard has just unveiled its latest lineup of EliteBook business laptops, and they include the EliteBook 735 G6 and the EliteBook 745 G6. These new laptops are debuting roughly a year after their "G5" counterparts. The EliteBook 735 G6 and 745 G6 are largely similar with regards to specs, with the primary difference being in the size of their display. The former comes with a 13.3-inch FHD IPS display, while the latter stretches the display to a slightly larger 14 inches. There are multiple display options for each laptop, but two things remain the same: the FHD resolution and the inclusion of an anti-reflective coating. On the processing front, HP is using AMD processors across the board,... Read more...
HP is hoping to offer gamers the best of both world with its Omen X Emperium 65. Although HP is careful not to call the Omen X Emperium 65 a television, per se, there's no escaping that fact that this is a massive display that would be more at home in your living room, den, or bonus room than your average computer desk. The Omen X Emperium measures a massive 65 inches diagonally, which puts it squarely in big-screen 4K HDTV territory. However, it borrows technology from the gaming world that we don't see in typical consumer-grade televisions, like NVIDIA G-SYNC and support for 144Hz refresh rates, for example. This duality of purpose leads to some interesting design choices, some of which... Read more...
The Zen CPU microarchitecture has been a resounding success for AMD, and that winning streak is likely to extend with the release of the company's third-generation, 7nm Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors. However, although AMD has been making inroads by carving deeper into Intel's share of the processor market, it hasn't been a knockout punch. According to HP Inc. CEO Dion Weisler, much of the trepidation in shifting to AMD processors comes from its commercial customers that tend to be more on the conservative side with respect to processor choice. These customers have been reliant on Intel for so long that they are pretty much programmed into thinking that there is no other comparable solutions... Read more...
There is a lot happening at Computex, including new processors from both AMD and Intel, and a whole bunch of new products from OEMs and peripheral makers. HP is the among the companies with new stuff on the way. Or more accurately, refreshed products. In an attempt to appeal to millennials, HP announced a new wood option for its Envy laptops. HP is no stranger to trying out alternative materials outside of the traditional metal, plastic, and carbon fiber designs that have been a staple of PC laptops for a long time. Late last year, for example, HP wrapped its Spectre Folio in supple, textured leather. Now it's dabbling in wood for a different audience. "Fifty-seven percent of millennials know... Read more...
HP is laying claim to having the world's first dual screen gaming laptop with its new Omen X 2S, a 15-inch notebook with a main display up top and a smaller screen that sits above the keyboard. It is not a totally new concept—Razer tried something similar several years ago—but it is one that has some interesting utility for gamers. The Omen X 2S is bound to bring comparisons to Razer's original Blade laptop released in 2012. What initially made the Blade stand out was a secondary display powered by Razer's Switchblade UI. It was plopped to the right of the keyboard, measured 4.3 inches, and featured LCD keys along the top, somewhat similar to Apple's Touch Bar found on some Mac systems.... Read more...
HP has announced the new Chromebook 15 which is priced at $449. HP offers the machine in Mineral Silver and Cloud Blue colors and both have a metal keyboard deck with a sandblasted finish and a ceramic-like white finished cover. As a Chromebook, the machine runs Chrome OS.  Inside the Chromebook 15 has an Intel Pentium Gold 4417U processor paired with 4GB of DDR4-2133 RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage. Graphics are handled by Intel HD Graphics 610, and the sound system is by B&O with dual speakers. One of the hallmarks of Chromebooks is long battery life, and the HP Chromebook 15 delivers that with up to 13 hours of runtime per charge. Other features include Intel 802.11 b/g/n/ac...

Purchasing a powerful, good-looking gaming PC used to require a visit to a boutique PC maker or a custom-built system from a local computer shop. There was a time when you couldn’t simply walk into a Future Shop or CompUSA and pick up something roughly equivalent to a DIY gaming system. Nowadays though, PC gaming has gone mainstream, and all of the OEM major players offer ready-built systems that cater to those that may not have the desire to build their own. What if you don’t have the time or skills to build your own system, but want reputable, name-brand components and a PC that could easily be upgraded or modified down the road? That's where desktops like the HP OMEN Obelisk can... Read more...
NVIDIA is looking to expand its presence in the high-performance workstation market with new systems that are specifically geared towards data scientists. More specifically, the machines are designed to accelerate data analytics, machine learning, and deep learning tasks that are becoming increasingly more important to a number of sectors including the finance, retail, and insurance fields. The new GPU-Accelerated Data Science Workstation reference platform makes use of dual Turing-based Quadro RTX 6000 or RTX 8000 GPUs delivering as much as 96GB of memory and up to 260 teraflops of peak compute performance (thanks to the high-speed NVLink interconnect). Backing that immense amount... Read more...
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...
During CES 2019 at the beginning of the year, HP rolled out a massive gaming monitor for gamers wanting the most screen space possible. The giant monitor was called the Omen X 65 Emperium, and we got to spend some hands-on time with it at the show. HP gave it an equally gigantic price of $4,999; so if you have been saving your pennies to put one of these on your desk, the time is now. HP is offering the Omen X Emperium 65 now, with shipping in 1 business day, for $4,999. If you don't recall what makes this monitor so special, as far as features go, don't fret, we will run them down for you below. The Emperium 65 display has built-in NVIDIA SHIELD TV, a quartet of USB ports, and... Read more...
At long last, NVIDIA today lifted the embargo on its GeForce GTX 1660 graphics card and the reviews have been pouring in (including our own). In short, it performs in the neighborhood of a GeForce GTX 1070 and costs $279. For those who might have been hoping for a bit more oomph, there might be a GeForce GTX 1180 on the horizon. The rumor mill never rests, it seems. Now that the GeForce GTX 1660 is official, talk of unreleased products has shifted to the GeForce GTX 1180, if only temporarily. What started the chatter is a document outlining the specs of HP's Omen Obelisk 875 series desktop PC, which references the GeForce GTX 1180 with 8GB of "dedicated" memory.

The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is one of the biggest events in the Tech space each year. We typically see a dizzying array of new products launch during the week of CES; more than we are likely to see in the following few months. Not all products are block-buster standouts though, and some of these technological spectacles inevitably shine brighter than others. After sifting though all the products we saw last week, we've compiled a list of the best products that we got time with at CES 2019. And with that, we'll just dive right in... Asus ProArt PA90 Asus's ProArt PA90 is a cylindrical mini-PC that packs a surprising amount of power into it a compact enclosure. These systems... Read more...
