There's been plenty of doom and gloom surrounding PC shipments over the past few years, with many consumers and business opting to not upgrade their hardware on a regular basis. However, new numbers that are in from research firm Gartner suggests that PC sales actually saw a slight uptick for Q3 2019 compared to the year-ago period, continuing a trend we saw during the second quarter. According to Garner's figures, shipments actually increased by 1.1 percent during Q3 to 68.1 million units. This compares to 67.4 million units during Q3 2018. What's interesting is that there were a number of factors at play that could have had a negative impact on the quarterly numbers: namely warning signs... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard is refreshing its popular Spectre x360 13 with a number of critical upgrades that make it an even more compelling mobile warrior for professionals. Perhaps the biggest change comes with respect to the device's chassis, which has nipped and tucked to the max. HP has managed to shrink the Spectre x360 13 by 13 percent compared to its 2018 counterpart, mainly due to changes that have been made around the display. Last year's model had a screen-to-body ratio of 78 percent compared to 90 recent for this new 2019 edition, which explains the reduction in exterior dimensions for the convertible. With its new, tidier dimensions, the Spectre x360 13 now weighs in at an impressive 2.8 pounds.... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard has just unwrapped a duo of new Chromebook devices, which are increasingly becoming popular due to the versatile nature of Google’s Chrome OS and affordable pricing. The new devices are the Chromebook x360 12b and the Chromebook x360 14b. Both share the same design language, with the main distinction being with screen size. The Chromebook x360 12b features a 12-inch HD+ display (1366x912), while the Chromebook x360 14b brings with it a larger 14-inch panel that can be had in either HD (1366x768) or FHD resolutions. Both of the devices feature a 360-degree hinge for using it in laptop or tablet modes (or anything in-between). HP Chromebook x360 14b With either device, you're... Read more...
It appears as though AMD is readying a new Radeon RX 5300 XT graphics card, presumably based on its 7-nanometer Navi GPU architecture. The new offering would join the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, Radeon RX 5700 XT, and Radeon RX 5700 as a lower priced option, though specs and other details are in short supply right now. While we do not have a bead on the full spec sheet, we are not totally clueless to the design, assuming a couple of HP documents are accurate. If they are, not only does the Radeon RX 5300 XT exist, but it will sport 4GB of GDDR5 memory. The card and RAM memory allotment are both listed in a pair of online documents pertaining to a couple of upcoming HP desktops.... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard is looking to drop the gauntlet in the ultralight business convertible laptop market, and it’s intent to do so with its impressive new EliteBook Dragonfly notebook. HP describes the EliteBook Dragonfly as the world’s lightest device in this category, which is made possible in part due to its CNC-machined magnesium chassis. That strong, yet lightweight material allows the convertible to tip the scales at just 2.2 pounds. The EliteBook Dragonfly has a 13.3-inch display that comes with either a Full HD or 4K UHD resolution. There are actually two Full HD panels available, with the first one offering a 400-nit brightness rating, while the second bumps that up to an even... Read more...
The modern work place is everywhere. Thanks to the need to attract top talent, many employers have generous work-from-home policies that allow employees who would normally be stuck in an office, to work from almost anywhere. Without the advent of fast portable PCs to do that work, however, this wouldn't be as easy as folding up a laptop and taking it with you. There are also plenty of road warriors who spend more than half their working lives traveling, and those folks need (or want) good-looking, fast laptop PCs like the HP Zbook 14u G6 we'll be showing you here, to take with them.  Back in April, Hewlett-Packard announced a whole host of new Zbook mobile workstations. At the time,... Read more...
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...
Earlier today, Intel released new 8th generation Whiskey Lake-U Core i5 and Core i7 vPro processors that are geared towards the business market.

The EliteBook... Read more...
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...
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.
