OMEN X Laptop is HP’s first overclockable portable gaming rig

There’s only so much you can change in a laptop, given its more or less fixed design. But while you can’t swap out processors and graphics cards, you can at least push them to their limits.

HP Pavilion AIO is for everything except making art

Surprise: the Windows Mixed Reality headsets don’t look totally dorky

Microsoft is betting big on Windows Mixed Reality, and it turns out PC makers are rising to the challenge with a variety of designs shown off this week at Computex 2017.

Happily, it looks like that's not going to be the case.

Each driver is focused on a specific class of hardware, like display, USB, audio, etc. So when an audio driver starts logging every keystroke made on a computer, you know something's up. That's the situation HP found itself in when security researcher Modzero reported that one of its audio drivers has a hidden keylogging function that poses a security risk to owners of its enterprise laptops.
