I’ve just posted a video that I made earlier this week of one of my favorite parts from the newly released Crysis 2: the freeway chase scene. My EliteBook has been cranking away hard at two big game titles all week long: Crysis 2 and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. So far, I’m loving both, though I am highly annoyed that this third iteration of Assassin’s Creed still has yet to take advantage of 16:10 display ratios (yup, those black bars at […]
Is this Firefox 4.0 Final edition?
I think it’s here, the final version of Firefox 4 is finally out (no pun intended)! I’ve been running Firefox 4 RC for awhile on my Elitebook and just several seconds ago, I got an update prompt when opening Firefox and literally two seconds later after the update, I got my homepage (but oddly, no “your Firefox has been updated” splash page) and the “RC” was dropped from my About page. So far, everything […]
HP Veer to be available to O2 Germany in May 2011
Albert Fetsch of O2 Germany has just posted on Twitter earlier today that they expect to get the HP Veer in Germany this May, which is the first sign of an estimated “release date” for the much await HP WebOS-totting smartphone. It is expected the HP Veer will also be available in the US, and other parts of Asia and Europe at around this time, although […]
EliteBook 8740w backlit keyboard
I really think HP’s EliteBook 8440w/8540w/8740w notebooks are seriously the best looking business laptops HP has ever made, and one of the better looking designs in the market, right up there with those timeless ThinkPad designs.
2010 EliteBook models: Probably the best looking business notebooks HP has ever made?!
It kinda makes one wonder what the EliteBook 8760w of the future will look like, which is interesting. Rumors have hinted (and also deduction from common sense and […]
Can your laptop do this?! (But seriously, don't try this at home)
I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time now (and I’ve been providing “live demonstrations” to enthusiastic people whom I know), but today I finally got down to recording a short film boasting the HP EliteBook’s durability.
What did I do? I stood on my EliteBook, literally.
But before we continue, there be a couple of disclaimers: One, this film is in no way endorsed by Hewlett Packard […]
Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 with vPro technology
Intel has put up a section on their website about their vPro technology now available in those new Sandy Bridge series Core i5 and Core i7 processors. Now we all know that vPro is useful to large enterprises to remotely manage, secure and maintain company machines, and it’s not anything new; it was available on the first generation of Core i series processors, it has been […]
Gaming on the EliteBook 8740w writeup… coming soon after Crysis 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Shift 2 Unleashed come out
Exciting times lie ahead in the month of March for three reasons: Crysis 2, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed (what a mouthful). The first two are coming out on March 22 while Need for Speed is being released on March 29. Perfect! Because I don’t think there’s a better or more fitting way to give […]
Hmm, this was unexpected – I just got an email from some people representing HP requesting we take down the picture and info sent to us by reader Mike W this morning. I’ve done just that in good faith, so until some official announcement of HP’s goodies…
However, there is this PDF file on HP’s website that mentions a 2560p and 2760p with multi-touch
