HP Chromebook 11, x360 11, and 14 get an education-centric refresh

After what seems like a period of slumber, Chromebooks are making headlines again. Part of that is thanks to the recent premium models announced at CES earlier this month, like the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. The other part is thanks to a reinvigorated campaign to push Chromebooks to schools and students. This particular segment, however, requires more affordable price tags, which is what HP's four new Chromebooks are trying to offer to educational institutions around the world.

The first HP Tile tracker-integrated laptop is here

HP Elite Dragonfly will be the first device with a Tile tracker embedded within, shown first at CES 2020. This is the first of what'll probably be a whole line of laptops with "embedded" Tile technology, allowing users to search for their lost laptop with the standard Tile app* and network. Much like a normal Tile tracker, this Tile works without the assistance of the laptop's own, separate technology. You can track this laptop even when the laptop is offline or powered off.

HP Elite Dragonfly G2, Spectre x360 15 promises power and security anywhere

CES may be painfully scheduled right after the New Year's festivities die down but it is also the perfect opportunity for companies to put their best foot forward at the beginning of the year. CES 2020 is no different and this year many are shouting the same 5G battle cry that has been echoing in the mobile world. The most recent wireless communication technologies free us to consume and create content anywhere but that also raises risks in privacy and security. With the 2020 HP Spectre x360 15 and the Elite Dragonfly G2, HP is claiming that you don't have to compromise your and your work's security just for that wireless freedom.

webOS Open Source Edition 2.0 keeps Palm’s spirit alive in cars and IoT

Palm's name may have recently been revived in a small way, quite literally, with a tiny companion Android phone. Ever since it got bought then sold by HP, however, Palm has been nothing more than a historical footnote in the consumer tech market. That's not to say its legacy doesn't live on today and at least one effort is trying to keep it on life support thanks to version 2.0 of the webOS Open Source Edition.

HP Spectre x360 13 (2019) invigorates HP’s most radical design

This year HP pulled out the stops when it came to their "best and brightest" with the HP Spectre x360 13 (for 2019). This is just the latest version of a laptop series HP's been improving upon each year since its introduction in March of 2015. Here in 2019, the design is very similar to the October 2018 version of the transforming laptop - but the bezels have been cut down considerably, giving the entire unit a 13% reduction in size.

HP OMEN gear for Fall diversifies gamer hardware aesthetic

HP OMEN gear for Fall diversifies gamer hardware aesthetic

The next generation of products from HP aimed at gamers uses both HP's brand power and their ability to release relatively large arrays of products all in a short period of time. While smaller gaming companies release a single sort of device, HP's able to release three, and where one company can manage to hold down a single product line, HP is large enough to go in several directions at once. Case in point: HP for business, students, the average working person, HP for hardcore gamers with OMEN and even more hardcore with OMEN X, and products like the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop, which is sort of a bridge between worlds.

HP TouchPad gets another lease on life with Android 9 Pie ROM

It isn't just wights that refuse to die (no GoT spoilers here, sorry). Even some devices do, too, if given enough attention, love, and a dose of Android. Nearing a decade since it launched, the HP TouchPad seems to refuse to bite the dust. Especially now that it has just gotten yet another chance with the latest version of Android that isn't even available yet on some of last year's smartphones.
