Shipments of desktops, laptops, and workstation machines tallied in the tens of millions in the first quarter of 2018, though overall the market for new PCs was flat to start the year, according to the number crunching analysts at International Data Corporation. Overall, the market saw 60.4 million units shipped, which is virtually the same as the number of new PCs that entered the marketplace in the same quarter a year ago. IDC lauded this as a good thing, saying that staying flat for the third consecutive quarter is a better proposition than the 1.5 percent decline it had previously forecast.... Read more...

HP has unveiled what it claims is the very first Chromebook detachable. The X2 is very thin at 8.2mm thick and it weighs in at 1.62 pounds without the keyboard. If you attach that keyboard to the device, it's 15.3mm thick and 3.14 pounds. HP uses 7th generation Intel Core M processors and up to 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM inside with a battery that promises all-day run time. The connection between the tablet portion and the island-style full-size keyboard is a magnetic hinge that makes for easy detaching when needed. The hinge has the rigidity needed to keep the tablet section upright for use as a notebook... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard is cranking out a new family of ZBook mobile workstations, and as you might expect with new devices being announced this week, they are powered by Intel's newest 8th generation processors. The highlight of the family is no doubt the new ZBook Studio x360 G5, which is a convertible machine that can be optioned up with mobile Xeon power. HP is billing the ZBook Studio x360 G5 as the world's most powerful convertible PC, and there's no reason to scoff at that notion. It can be optioned up with Core i5 quad-core processors (8 threads) and Core i7 hexa-core processors (12 threads). For... Read more...

It looks like HP is anticipating strong demand for Windows 10 laptops and convertibles powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. One of HP's first devices built around the mobile chip is the Envy x2 (model 12-e011nr), a premium 2-in-1 that is now available to order, for $999.99. It's a good thing HP did not charge a penny more, because then we'd have to pan the thousand-dollar price tag—phew! Jesting aside, the asking price is high for a Windows 10 convertible with an ARM processor inside rather than a x86 chip. The selling points are built-in 4G LTE connectivity and long battery life....

CES 2018 has come to a close, and so begins the arduous wait, for some of the exciting devices we saw, to come to market. The Consumer Electronic Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada is where companies come to tout new wares and announce upcoming products and technologies. While some of the cool tech that was shown leaves us with that "shut-up and take my money" feeling, it’s often not retail-ready, with months of lead-time separating consumers from getting their hands on the geek goodness we spied last week. For those who couldn’t attend the show, it can be difficult navigating the CES myriad... Read more...
HP has peeled the covers off some more cool gear at CES 2018 and one of the coolest things in the mix is the Omen X 65 Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD).

HP is set to drop a very powerful convertible laptop on the masses at CES 2018. In fact, HP claims that the machine is the world's most powerful convertible PC, and we have no reason to doubt the company. The Spectre x360 15 is available with one of two potent processors with equally competent graphics subsystems. The first available is an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8550U processor that is paired with Pascal-based GeForce MX150 graphics. The second, and possibly more entertaining pairing is the 8th generation Core i7-8705G processor, which includes an on-package AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics... 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... Read more...
