HP: new Windows 10 devices will land on Day One

HP: new Windows 10 devices will land on Day One

In about two weeks, the world will finally see what Windows 10 is all about. Or at least some will. Microsoft detailed the staged rollout of Windows 10 to various partners and consumers, indicating that most end users won't see the new OS until a much later date. That may be true for existing Windows 7 or 8.1 users, the legit ones at least, but new owners might see a different story. HP is now coming out to say that some people will be able to get their hands on a shiny new Windows 10 laptop on July 29 itself.

B&O HP EliteBook Folio 1020 is HP’s hero for Windows 10 [UPDATE: not so fast…]

As Windows 10 launches, HP presents a Bang & Olufsen limited edition HP EliteBook Folio 1020. This notebook computer is extremely light and thin and works with Bang & Olufsen certified audio output. It works with dual-array microphones, noise-canceling software, and an HD webcam to make your whole audio-visual experience as elite as the company suggests. HP is also making an effort to assert that their HP Pro Tablet 608 is a headliner for the spot of tablet hero in the Windows 10 universe this autumn.

HP goes back to school with convertibles, Chromebook

School may just be ending but it's never too early to prepare for the next academic year, especially when it comes to purchasing a new laptop. To make things easier, or perhaps even more difficult, HP is announcing its own batch of PCs designed with students and teachers in mind. Or maybe "re-labeled" might be a better term, as the HP Spectre Pro x360 G1, the HP Pro x360 310 G2, and the HP Chromebook 11 G4 are practically minor updates or even rehashes of existing HP products.

HP’s $299 Pavilion x2 tablet hybrid blew me away

HP’s $299 Pavilion x2 tablet hybrid blew me away

Making a sleek tablet with a detachable keyboard isn’t tough, but making one with both style and an affordable price tag takes another level of commitment. HP believes it has just the thing, however, in the shape of the new HP Pavilion x2. A 10-inch Windows tablet with a magnetically-clinging keyboard, USB-C, and over 10hrs of battery life, it’s hard not to see Microsoft’s Surface 3 right in HP’s sights. Surprisingly, though, the Pavilion x2 will start at under $300.

HP's oddball all-in-one PC, the Sprout, is gaining a rotating turntable accessory to enable 3D scanning. Priced at $299, the 3D Capture Stage will land alongside a scanning software update that, together, will allow Sprout users to turn physical objects into digital versions that can be manipulated in all dimensions. Meanwhile, a deal with Dremel will make producing 3D prints of such items more straightforward, too.

HP compromises to get groundbreaking Machine to market

HP compromises to get groundbreaking Machine to market

HP expects to have its groundbreaking Machine up and running in 2016, but its ambitious plans for the computer have been tempered from the original promises. Announced last year alongside an aggressive scheme to introduce memristors - chips that straddle volatile RAM and non-volatile storage - commercially, HP Machine was billed as the future of everything from servers to smartphones. Speaking at the HP Discover event this week, however, HP Labs' director Martin Fink conceded that the first-generation Machine won't be quite as revolutionary as initially hoped.
