In April 2010, HP bought a dying Palm for over a billion dollars; that sparked plenty of interest as it could have provided a new future for the capable WebOS. Sadly, under their old management, they failed to restore life into the dying company and 16 months later, in August of 2011, HP officially called quits and abandoned WebOS.
If you’ve been reading HP Fansite for a while, you know that I have a passion in seeing high performance hardware and gaming. And sometimes it’s good to break the monotony of talking about everything HP and discuss some other things happening in the tech industry. At CES 2013, there already has been plenty of exciting news: Intel talking about their latest Haswell processors, AMD launching new processors and Radeon 8000 series graphics cards, the Nvidia Shield handheld […]
Also announced at CES 2013 today is the HP Pocket Playlist, a compact media server with 32 GB of memory. This little device can stream video up to 5 different devices via a direct WiFi connection, including smartphones (where an app for iPhone and Android will be out soon). It also can record shows from Hulu, Netflix and many other websites like Amazon Instant Video via its PlayLater function. The catch to this is PlayLater comes as a 1 month […]
It’s been a busy first day at CES 2013 and Intel certainly has had a large presence at the show, along with some things to say about their upcoming 2013 Haswell processor line.

Haswell will be the first time in about 4 years that Intel has had a line of 10W processors; with ultra-low voltage processors […]
With HP slapping the Envy name on everything they can get their hands on these days, the new HP Envy 27 Beats monitor that they dropped today shouldn’t come as a surprise. They’ve had Envy laptops, Envy all-in-one desktops, Envy printers and now they have an Envy monitor. The Envy 27 Beats hosts a 1920 x 1080 IPS panel that’s 27 inches in size with a super-slim bezel. The display has an aluminium stand that connects to the display […]
Now here’s something HP has never done before: A portable monitor. At CES 2013 today, HP brought out the U160 flip and fold monitor. The HP U160 sports a 15.6 inch LED backlit TN display with 1366 x 768 pixels of resolution and 180 nits of brightness. The monitor is thin (by external monitor standards) and weighs just 3.4 lbs (1.6 kg), making it portable as it can be. The monitor also has a built-in case which allows you to […]
Today’s the first day of the Consumer Electronics Show CES 2013 and HP certainly has some consumer oriented products to show. Earlier on Monday, HP launched two new thin, AMD powered Pavilion notebooks. The Pavilion Sleekbook and its long-named sibling, the Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook both feature 15.6 inch displays, full-sized chiclet style keyboards with number pads and AMD accelerated processing units (APU). The key differences is that the former uses AMD A6 chips and has a standard non-touch display, while […]
