HP Android tablet tipped with Tegra 4

The former smartphone manufacturer and current PC giant HP has once again been reported to be dipping in to the smart mobile device market, this time running Android. HP is the once-proud purchaser of the smart device group by the name of Palm, having in the past created a collection of smartphones and one infamous tablet (the HP TouchPad) running a mobile operating system called WebOS. That plan went a bit sour, and this week's anonymous tipster lets the world know that HP may be hitting the mobile sector again, hard, this time with a tablet running Android on an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor.

HP EliteBook 2570p Review

HP EliteBook 2570p Review

Upon first glance, you might think that the EliteBook 2570p came straight out of 2002, and while first opening it up to get a look at it, I thought I had mysteriously jumped through a time warp that took me back ten years and didn’t even know it. However, as much as I’d like to travel back in time, that wasn’t the case. The 2570p is a business laptop from HP that's meant for the business-minded road warriors who need durability and reliability when it comes to portable computers. It may not have good looks that will turn heads, but it has enough horsepower on the inside to make any suit wearer happy.

HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart Review

HP dove into the Windows 8 ecosystem without hesitation, and the results of that effort are tons of new laptops and desktop computers, some of which are the company’s new ENVY TouchSmart all-in-one series of Windows 8 machines, which we first heard about back in September. They have an entry-level 20-inch model, as well as a 23-inch variant that we took for a spin. It has a fast quad-core processor, quick graphics, a lot of system memory, and a huge hard drive, not to mention the 1080p touchscreen. It’ll cost you, though: around $1,700 for this particular build, but the ENVY 23 TouchSmart (model d060qd) definitely has all the specs to make anyone happy. However, is it right for everyone? Let’s find out.

HP Pavilion Chromebook leaked for February 17th

HP Pavilion Chromebook leaked for February 17th

This week it appears that HP is getting set up to work with a Pavilion-branded Chromebook, pumped up and ready to take action with the rest of the extremely inexpensive machines that Samsung and Acer have created thus far.

I say least hardcore simply because HP has been known for and has proven to us that they are, indeed, hardcore with their Elite lineup top to bottom - with Chrome the game is altogether different.
