Next-gen 17 inch mobile workstation

By Brad Jan 21 2010 5 Comments

It’s big. It’s bad (in a kick-butt way). It already exists. And it’s coming soon. What is it?
Here is what’s currently known about HP’s next-generation flagship Elitebook 8740w:

Intel Core i7 standard
17 inch display (16:10 aspect ratio, up to 1920 x 1200 resolution)
DreamColor display available (same as 8730w?? very likely)
4 DDR3 RAM slots
2 storage drive bays
Reshuffled port layout
Nvidia Quadro FX3800M graphics; 1 GB memory

What our super reliable source says about the part about the drive bays is very interesting. I wonder […]

Mobile phones – Dual to quad microSD/microSDHC slots

By Brad Jan 20 2010 1 Comment


You know, I’ve always wondered with today’s kind of technology, why nobody has come out with such an implementation yet… with the availability of high capacity microSD/microSDHC memory cards, why not have two to four individual slots for them in a single phone (I think just about all phones currently have only one memory card slot or just a big chunk of internal memory with no expansion slot). This way, consumers and users can decide how much memory they […]

HP Touchsmart tm2 tablet full specifications; 16:10 multitouch, available for order

I’ve been waiting days for this and it’s finally here – the HP Touchsmart tm2 is available for (pre?) order on HP’s official website. But more importantly, the full list of available options and specifications are there as well. Processor options max out at Intel’s 1.6 Ghz dual core, low voltage processor with ATI Mobility 4550 graphics. Good news for “movie widescreen” haters too, the Touchsmart tm2 has a 16:10 multitouch widescreen with 1280 x 800 resolution – […]

Voodoo phone mentioned by Rahul Sood

By Brad Jan 16 2010 1 Comment


Arrgh me hearties, a year it has been since there was speculation about the possibility of Voodoo PC (a subsidiary of HP) coming out with a (luxury?) mobile phone. HP’s CTO of their HP/Voodoo Business Unit, Rahul Sood, has just mentioned in a Twitter tweet that it bugs him that he’s using an Apple iPhone instead of a “Voodoo phone”
The message seems pretty cryptic as nothing else, no other details, are mentioned. Is a new […]

Elitebook 2740p mentioned on a high school website

An anonymous person has just tipped us off about the “manufacturing date” of the upcoming HP Elitebook 2740p posted on a Michigan high school’s website. Mercy High School mentions in an announcement about their Student Computing Package that the HP Elitebook 2740p is set to be manufactured in Spring 2010 (which probably means anywhere between now and March-April?). They go on to mention that the Elitebook 2740p tablet is […]

Playing as the happy chainsaw-wielding Coach in Left4Dead 2

In some other news related to gaming, I’ve just updated Left4Dead 2 to the latest version (I think) after a long while of not playing the game due to crash issues, which some may remember, I posted about more than a month ago. Well after keeping myself busy with other games, relaxing during the Christmas/New Year holidays and more recently, covering HP-related CES news, I’ve finally had the time […]

HP’s undercover gaming laptop – the Elitebook 8540w

It’s a weekend and I’ve been busy with spring cleaning, vacuuming the place and sorting things out, tossing out unused junk… and I’ve also been eying Assassin’s Creed 2 for PC, which is coming out in March 2010! Alienware (by Dell) recently came out with a very interesting 11 inch ‘gaming’ notebook this CES and I’ve been visiting their site to check out their M11x and M15x notebooks (not that I’m considering either, I’m just curious to learn more […]
