UK retailer “Play” has put up the HP Pre 3 on their website for pre-order at £349.99 (about $560), unlocked and contract-free, which gives us a good idea of the HP Pre 3’s price once it lands in other places such as the […]

HP USB Graphics Adapter
Ah the HP USB Graphics Adapter… Let me first mention how delighted I am to have found something like this exists. Here’s the thing: I have an HP EliteBook 8740w that I will have to return in the long term and unfortunately for me, and since beggars can’t be choosers, the one I have here has the older generation Nvidia Quadro FX3800M graphics. And as I recently discovered… well, actually I knew it was gonna happen […]

The news is out, HP has just announced the addition of AMD’s brand new APUs (a combination of a traditional CPU and graphics processing unit) in some of their existing notebook models.

HP EliteBook 2560p vs ProBook 5330m: Cousin against cousin

By Brad Jun 3 2011 6 Comments

ProBook 5330m vs EliteBook 2560p
I’m not sure if anyone else noticed but the release of the HP EliteBook 2560p and ProBook 5330m notebooks has certainly intrigued me, since the latter now is dressed like an EliteBook (not sure if actual build quality is the same though) and the EliteBook 2560p has downshifted to a 16:9 aspect ratio display, has a reshuffled right side of the keyboard that kicks away some important dedicated keys and seems to […]
