HP LaserJet Pro M15, M28 tiny printers are for micro businesses

HP has launched what it says is the smallest laser printers of their kind, the HP LaserJet Pro M15 and M28 series.

The new LaserJet Pro models help fill that void, offering "micro and small" businesses, including the self-employed, a laser printing option.

HP Envy x2 pricing: Looks like Windows-on-ARM won’t be cheap

Windows-on-ARM was seemed like a good way to get Windows to users with low processing power needs, presumably for low prices.

But HP's reveal of one of the first Windows-on-ARM computer's pricing seems to have dashed those dreams - at least from this angle.

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.

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.

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]

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.
