Windows Mixed Reality headsets are now more affordable

Windows Mixed Reality headsets are now more affordable

If you expected virtual, augmented, and mixed reality to be the centerpiece of CES 2018 a few weeks ago, you might have been sorely disappointed. Is the honeymoon finally over? Perhaps not. But there is a growing trend of making the technology more accessible to more people, in terms of design and, more importantly, price. As if to counter the arrival of cheaper and standalone headsets, Microsoft and its OEM partners have seemingly all decided to cut the prices of their virtual mixed reality gear by nearly half. Well, at least almost all of them.

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

The HP Sprout desktop, announced way back in 2014, was already an odd idea. It basically mounted a 3D camera on top of an all-in-one PC that let you scan both 3D and 2D objects. Its near $2,000, at least back then, price tag didn’t help its cause either. Still believing that this is the future of computer input and interaction, HP has tried to make the technology more accessible, in both form and price. Enter the HP Z 3D camera, which is basically the Sprout camera, detached, and compatible with almost any Windows system, preferably HP’s, of course.

HP recalls notebook batteries because of overheating [UPDATE]

HP recalls notebook batteries because of overheating [UPDATE]

It’s a bad start to the year for the PC industry. It kicked off with the damning revelation of critical vulnerabilities that affect almost all CPUs, from Intel to ARM, made in the last decade. Now HP is singularly having problems of its own that are totally unrelated to the Meltdown and Spectre exploits. The computer maker has just announced a recall of its lithium-ion batteries powering quite a number of its notebooks and mobile workstations because of their potential to become fire hazards.

HP Chromebook 11 G6, 14 G5 head to CES 2018 with better specs

CES is the perfect time to show off new wares, setting the tone for the rest of the year. While many of the computing devices that have been preannounced so far focus on the high-end, there’s definitely still plenty of room for those with more constrained resources or requirements. Chromebooks seem to be becoming a thing again, and HP isn’t one to miss the train. At CES 2018, it will be showing off the latest gen Chromebook 11 and Chromebook 14 targeted at schools and businesses.

Today we're hearing out a rather worrying vulnerability in a large range of HP notebooks.

The good news, however, is that HP has worked quickly in solving the issue, and beyond that, there's little chance of anyone actually being affected by this vulnerability.

ASUS NovaGo and HP ENVY x2 hands-on: Snapdragon’s Windows stars

Welcome to the familiar: I've just spent some time with the first Windows 10 on Snapdragon devices, HP's ENVY x2 and ASUS's NovaGo, and they're both new and old in one. Unveiled today at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Summit, the two new ultraportables - one a 2-in-1, and the other a detachable tablet - promise a whole new way of working on the move. In your hands, though, they feel much like the Windows 10 machines we've already seen.

Here’s how to remove the new HP Touchpoint Telemetry bloatware

Here’s how to remove the new HP Touchpoint Telemetry bloatware

Companies have many reasons and methods for gather users’ device data, with or without their knowledge, much less consent. The most common is telemetry data harvested for statistics and for the sake of improving services. Regardless of reason or method, it is always a privacy concern. So when HP started installing a new Touchpoint Analytics Client Telemetry service behind users’ backs, said users were naturally annoyed and alarmed, especially since it came at some cost. Fortunately stopping and removing that service isn’t too difficult.

HP Elite x3 launches on Verizon too little too late

HP Elite x3 launches on Verizon too little too late

Talk about beating a dead horse. The HP Elite x3 is practically what the Surface Phone should have been, at least in terms of features and specs. It wasn’t perfect but it definitely deserved a follow-up. HP, however, says that will never come to pass, thanks to Microsoft reversing directions and practically abandoning Windows 10 Mobile. Imagine people’s surprise, then, when HP put the Elite x3 up for sale again, this time compatible with Verizon’s network, a good year after the device was launched.

HP ZBook x2 crams a workstation in 2-in-one form

Microsoft may have just unveiled not one but two new Surface Book 2s, but it’s hardly the only detachable PC game in town anymore. Other OEMs have already followed suit. HP, for example, already has the Elite x2 and the Spectre x2. So what’s the harm in adding one more? While differentiation is usually a concern, it’s no problem for the new HP ZBook x2. That’s because unlike any other 2-in-1 detachable PC in the market, HP boasts that all the power you need is packed inside the tablet half of the contraption.
