“Hulk smash HP Pavilion”… and it survived, sort of…

By Brad Jun 27 2011 add comment

Now here’s something you don’t come across everyday: Not two months ago, I had a friend who fell from riding his bike; with some scratches here and there, he was alright but the Pavilion dv7 in his backpack… not so much. However, having tried, tested and shown how extremely durable HP’s EliteBook business models are, it’s interesting to observe and analyze the extent of damage and survivability of consumer-level models from abuse and accidents.
The notebook was an almost brand […]

As the weekends approach, it’s a good time to start to unwind from the hectic week and look forward to about 60 hours of blissful, non-weekday time. Now I know some may be starting to see a trend here, after last week’s muse, the $34,000 HP mouse… and I’ll try to have a weekly “Fun Stuff Fridays” post, depending if I come across anything […]

HP TouchPad is now up for pre-order!
There’s exactly a week till the HP TouchPad tablet hits the market for real on July 1st. There’s still time to pre-order HP’s first ever consumer touch tablet, but so far HP is keeping quiet on how pre-orders are going and what kind of sales they expect from the TouchPad.
In other touch tablet related news, I noticed the HP TouchSmart tm2 convertible laptop/tablet has disappeared from HP’s website. Could this be a […]

Intel intros new ULV chips, Sandy Bridge TouchSmart tm2 here we come?!

Intel's new ULV processors good reason for a TouchSmart tm2 update?
Two months ago I talked about how HP could potentially stuff “Sandy Bridge 1.5” in their TouchSmart tm2, seeing how their consumer-level tablet model is the only model at the moment that hasn’t received the Intel 2011 Sandy Bridge update treatment. Today, Intel ushered out of its doors, three new ultra-low voltage Sandy Bridge chips… ripe and ready to be used in a potential TouchSmart tm2 update, if 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 […]
