Apple released new MacBook Pro models today in three sizes
Apple has just announced a fairly significant refresh to their three MacBook Pro models (13 inch, 15 inch and 17 inch). And though this ain’t an Apple Fansite (It’s an HP Fansite in case you haven’t noticed our big fat banner at the top =) , I’m sure it isn’t blasphemy for us to talk a little about the new products from the Windows PC world’s fruity competitor. The changes […]

HP EliteBook 8460p vs HP EliteBook 8560p: A summary
Hey, remember those new EliteBooks released yesterday? Sure you do! I think it’s interesting that the EliteBook 8460p and EliteBook 8560p are even closer together than the previous pair (EliteBook 8440p and EliteBook 8540p), with the only differences being:

Nvidia has just announced their first bunch of “Fermi” Quadro workstation class graphics card that supports DirectX 11 for both desktops and notebooks. The Nvidia Quadro FX5000M not only has 2 GB of memory (which we already knew about from ‘service parts’ for the Elitebook 8740w that have been posted on HP’s website for months now), but is superior to the current (and now, former) top of the line Quadro FX3800M in almost every way imaginable, at […]
