Well, well, well… what’s this we have here? Just as we were discussing the HP PalmPad yesterday and talking about the potential demise of the HP Slate, with the large possibility that the PalmPad was going to take its place as competitor to Apple’s iPad. Apparently HP wants to compete on both operating system fronts when it comes to offering iPad equivalent alternatives; with a mobile, more content-consumption friendly Web OS for the PalmPad as well as full-fledged (but touch […]
As if the iPad name wasn’t/isn’t bad enough (remember the jokes about the name when Apple first announced the iPad?), now it seems everyone’s following the suit! Today, Lenovo unveiled their plans to release their Android-running LePad tablet by the end of this year (the name LePad is probably “Lenovo Pad” for short, but could easily be mistaken and confused for something else by the French, due to its French-sounding name). Anyway, there could be no better a time […]
HP ProBook 5320m
Earlier this month, HP quietly announced the ProBook 5320m in some of their region-specific websites (such as HP Singapore), successor to last year’s ‘thin and light’ ProBook 5310m business notebook. The HP ProBook 5320m is a fairly minor refresh, with the changes being a new body color (now in gold-silvery tone, versus the all-black 5310m) with new 2010 Core i-series processors dropped into its 0.93 inch thin aluminum + magnesium alloy chassis (the ProBook […]
Well, here’s a little picture for everyone’s entertainment while waiting for Part 3 of my “choosing an ultra-portable” journey… It’s the HP Elitebook 8440p stacked on top of a 13 inch Apple white/plastic MacBook! Before anyone asks, no I don’t use Macs =) (don’t own one either).
Anyway, I figured I published the first two parts of my series a little too early – because what I ordered hasn’t arrived yet, and I really want to have some […]
HP Envy 14 now available; will be built as early as July 15th
At long last, HP has finally made their Envy 14 available for order on their official website. And there’s even more positive news: you can tweak specifications to your liking via order customization and the Envy 14 (CTO options) are said to ship as early as July 15th. Things that come standard with the Envy 14 include a 14.5 inch LED-backlit display (with 1600 […]
No, those are not my hands and that is not my iPad…
I was about to move away from looking at tablets, but before I did, I decided to have a look at one more option – the Apple iPad. Like many of Apple’s products, the iPad has received and continues to receive plenty of hype – from its ‘awesome’ feature set and versatility to its slim profile and form factor suited to content consumption. And the fact that it […]
Fresno, California. That’s where I’ll be heading this August. And that’s why I’ve been scouring high and low for the ultra-portable device that will be my companion for at least the next 3 years or so. Because I’m a long term planner, my hunt has been on-going since January (sometime near CES)… and after reading up on various devices and platforms, countless comparisons and obligatory “waiting for the latest”, I think I have finally made up my mind.
The first […]
Hey, what do we have here… looks like HP has quietly added a bunch of new and currently unreleased Intel Core i3, Core i5 AND Core i7 Mobile processors to their Elitebook line of notebook PCs! If you’ve checked out my posting about the HP Envy 17, SOME of these new processor options may not come as a surprise, but I bet you never knew about those new Core i3 Mobile processors, huh?
All of today’s […]
