Custom EliteBook used by Tobii Tech
Well hello everyone, hope you had a good holiday season and happy new year 2012. CES is coming and we’ll be sure to get busy around here. I spotted something very interesting two days ago when Tobii Technology showed off a video with their new hardware for mouse-free interaction with Windows 8. This was made possible via eye-tracking, whose hardware was incorporated into a modified HP EliteBook (specifically the 14 inch EliteBook 8440p).

Spotted: HP shows off style in simplicity in 2011 EliteBook brochure

By Brad Jul 4 2011 add comment

Screenshot of a page from HP's latest EliteBook brochure
Looks like HP is even incorporating their ‘simple but professional’ attire from their notebooks into their brochures too. At least that’s what the design/layout of this new PDF file showing off the features of HP’s EliteBook business laptops tells us. While the brochure doesn’t tell HP-obsessed folks like me any new things we don’t already know, it certainly presents some interesting facts and eye-opening features which might convince some […]

HP Mini Wireless Keyboard with EliteBook… review coming soon!
The HP Mini Wireless Keyboard: I’ve been using this little thing for awhile now with my EliteBook.

More on this home/media center suited keyboard later this week when I […]

And I wish I even had a car in the first place… here comes someone who made a huge typo on a HP Wireless Mouse’s price tag: the little critter is listed for a cool $34,072 on Amazon, just a couple of bucks short of the base price for an entry-level BMW 3 series sedan! And then there’s more good news and bad news… [sarcasm alert!] Good news is that it comes with free shipping, which should […]

Report: HP to make some notebooks in Japan

By Brad Jun 17 2011 add comment

Japanese publication The Nikkei is reporting this morning that HP plans to move part of its notebook production to Japan, from China, over the next couple of months. The report mentions that equivalent labor costs in Japan is about four times that of China, but there will be efficiency gains as a result along with that respectable ‘Made in Japan’ underneath your notebook and delivery times slashed from 10 down to 5 business days. According to The Nikkei, HP also […]

CFast slot on the HP EliteBook 8560w
I’ve looked over the EliteBook press photos before and I remember seeing something interesting, but we got too caught up in covering their release in the news that I almost forgot all about it.  So here’s the scoop: there’s this slot on the front of the newly released EliteBook 8560w that looks suspiciously like a Compact Flash card slot. And upon close inspection, there’s a line above it that reads “CFast”. This is […]
