Why HP’s £4,000 Workstation Laptop is Such a Beautiful Beast

Laptops have seen tremendous improvements in performance over the last few years, but for a professional animator and creative video producer like myself, they’re rarely if ever as powerful as the desktops companies equip me with. Yet after five months with the HP Zbook x360 G5 Studio, I feel comfortable saying laptops have finally arrived at a point where they can replace desktops for even the most demanding digital professionals.

HP Is Trying to Reinvent the Business Laptop With the Elite Dragonfly

While the typical business laptops often get the job done, they’re usually heavy, ugly, and generally hard to love, which is exactly what HP is trying to address with the new Elite Dragonfly. Read More >>

It’s Been a While Since a HP Laptop Felt This Competitive

You used to know a cheap HP laptop just by glancing at it. There’d be a lot of plastic painted to look like metal, and it’d probably be too thick. But the new HP Envy 13 is a shockingly good deal of a laptop. It looks good, it’s fast, and boy is it cheap. But as with many devices that seem too good to be true for the price, there are some compromises. Read More >>

HP’s Omen X 2S is Proof Dual-Screen Laptops Can Be Awesome

I admit I might have a problem because no matter where I am or what I’m doing, one screen just isn’t enough. At my desk at home and work, I have dual monitors, and even when I’m sitting on my couch watching TV, I almost always have a phone or laptop open off to the side, checking emails, reading news, or playing a game. That said, based on figures that say an estimated 68 percent of Americans browse their phones while watching TV, it seems I’m not the only addicted to screens. Read More >>

HP Spectre x360 15 Review: A Slick Laptop That’s Nearly Ruined by One Stupid Mistake

The HP Spectre x360 15-inch laptop is a lovely machine. Impeccably designed, powerful enough for most big tasks, and featuring a new 15.6-inch OLED display that will make your eyes weep with joy. Too bad HP put a terrible trackpad on the thing. Read More >>

HP’s Omen X 2S Gaming Laptop Has Customisation Second Screen to Help Up Your Game

Bendy screens are a hot topic right now, given Samsung’s folding phone, and cool prototypes like Lenovo’s flexible screen laptop, but HP’s Omen X 2S laptop is taking a different approach to packing more display into a device. Instead of one big screen that doubles as a touchpad and keyboard, the Omen X 2S will put a phone size display directly above the keyboard. Read More >>

This 65-Inch PC Gaming Monitor Burned My Eyes in the Good Way

You’ve sat too close to the TV. Or to the screen at the cinema. Everything warps when you get up close. People become giants. The screen seems to go on forever. Everything takes on that 8-bit video game look as you can see the sharp outline of each pixel. But have you ever sat too close to a computer monitor? Can you remember a time you put your nose to that screen and felt like it was too close—too much? If you answer is “no,” might I interest you in the HP Omen X Emperium 65? It’s 65 beautiful inches of display that HP thinks gamers will happily drop £3,500 for. It is at once far, far too much screen for a mere computer, and it is gluttonously just enough. Read More >>

The HP Spectre Folio Is Gaudy, Ambitious and Maybe the Future

The HP Spectre Folio is deceptive. Closed it looks like a fancy leather folder business types take to conference rooms. Held in your hands, it’s smooth and rich feeling under your fingertips, but heavier than you’d expect. It opens exactly as a laptop should, but then when moving it into its tablet mode, you find you’re pulling the display towards yourself instead of doing 360-degree gymnastics. It’s weird. Confusing. But also natural? If laptop makers are dead set on making laptops double as tablets, then this one’s figured it out. Read More >>

HP Thinks It Cracked the 2-in-1 Code

At first glance, the HP Spectre Folio looks like any old tablet in a leather case. It’s not outstanding or even very interesting looking. But it’s a very clever device, hiding in an elegant package. When you see it in person, your excitement slowly builds as its design reveals itself to you. Read More >>

It’s 2018, and I Actually Care About This Inkjet Printer

The HP Tango X, a compact home printer which is trying incredibly hard to be contemporary and relevant, is actually pretty cool. No, it is not 1999, and I am not typing this from a Gateway desktop tucked in a corner of my mum's kitchen. This really is an inkjet printer to get excited about. Honestly. I swear! Read More >>

The Latest Breed of 2-in-1s Have Finally Realised the Hybrid Dream

Even though they don’t look much different than a lot of other hybrid laptops, the release of the Dell’s XPS 15 2-in-1 and HP’s Spectre x360 15 is an important moment for today’s convertible PCs. That’s because by putting powerful, but not exceedingly expensive GPUs inside already flexible machines, it feels like 2-in-1s are finally ready to deliver on what made the idea of convertible computers so exciting in the first place.
