HP Pavilion Mini and Stream Mini: Windows in the palm of your hand

HP Pavilion Mini and Stream Mini: Windows in the palm of your hand

HP has set its sights on both tiny Chromeboxes and cheap Windows devices with its new pair of budget-friendly and small-form-factor Windows PCs. Both the HP Pavilion Mini and the HP Stream Mini Desktops are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, being similar in style and size to, for example, a set-top-box or a Chrome box. Despite the small size, both run Windows 8.1, giving users an option to get their Windows fix without planting a big desktop or shelling out for an expensive laptop.

HP expands display roster, includes “virtual reality” monitor

HP expands display roster, includes “virtual reality” monitor

Manufacturers announcing new hardware during this part of the year isn't really new, but HP is making a strange play by almost subtly including a rather unique, if not odd, computer monitor into the mix. Together with a new batch of flat 4K and 5K monitors and a handful of curved screens, HP is announcing the Zvr Virtual Reality Display. This rather imposing contraption combines many technologies, including, of course, virtual reality, in order to reduce the barrier between the physical and the digital.

HP Pro Tablet 408 rocks 8-inch screen and Windows OS

HP already has a couple tablets that it offers to tablet users that run the Windows operating system. It has the HP Stream 7 and Stream 8 for instance. Those are both rather inexpensive tablets with the Stream 7 selling for around $100 and the Stream 8 for around $150. Those tablets are both mostly aimed at normal consumers rather than professional users.

HP Chromebook 14 G3 arrives with Touchscreen, Tegra K1

Chromebooks aren't exactly known for their high-end features and more for their "straight to Chrome" experience and budget friendly prices. This latest 14-inch model from HP, then, is one of the exceptions. The HP Chromebook 14 G3, model 14-x050nr, not only packs a touchscreen, just like some higher-end laptops these days, it also has an NVIDIA mobile CPU and a copious amount of RAM that makes the device almost perfect for gaming. As much gaming you can do on Chrome OS, that is.

HP Omen gaming notebook rivals Razer for the mainstream

HP Omen gaming notebook rivals Razer for the mainstream

HP may not be the first name you think of when you consider meaty gaming notebooks, but the company is hoping to change all that with the HP Omen. Taking on potent rivals like Razer's Blade and models from Alienware, the Omen seems determined to strike as much of a balance as it can between power and affordability (something we can't always say about the gaming competition). So, there's no outlandish 4K display, but that does help with the price of entry.

3D printing DRM could open new age of consumerism

3D printing DRM could open new age of consumerism

The ominous warnings of easy counterfeiting and cloned products confusing consumers issued back in the early days of 3D printing may not have panned out quite yet, but a new breed of 3D content DRM demonstrates brands are taking no chances. The technology, which will replace local files - that could in theory be copied and distributed, with content owners only paid once - with a streamed version, is lurking behind some familiar smiling faces, with MakerBot using the system for the first time with Sesame Street characters.

HP’s next-gen 3D printers are headed to Shapeways

HP’s next-gen 3D printers are headed to Shapeways

HP may have only just taken the wraps off of its 3D Multi Jet Fusion printer technology, but it already has at least one customer, with Shapeways announcing plans to pilot the high-accuracy 3D printing system in 2015. The inkjet-based tech - which squirts tiny amounts of thermoplastic out of thousands of nozzles, and can mix together different colors and finishes in the same pass - should not only increase flexibility for what Shapeways can print, the company says, but dramatically reduce turnaround time for the impatient.

Can this $200 HP Windows notebook beat back Chrome?

Can this $200 HP Windows notebook beat back Chrome?

It's time for HP's Stream laptop, a rather striking piece of equipment with a price point that's aiming directly as the new age of low-cost notebooks. HP also makes Chromebooks, so it's not as if they're aiming to destroy the Chromebook universe entirely. On the contrary. It's clear that HP has seen the light with low-cost machines, that there's a big market for them, and has brought on a Windows-toting notebook that fits the bill. And it's blue, too - Horizon Blue!
