Can your netbook survive an 8 foot fall?

By Brad Apr 16 2009 add comment

Because my Mini Note 2133 just did last weekend (ouch, almost broke my heart when it toppled over by accident and crashed eight feet down to the ground) but thankfully, it still works – hard disk, screen, internals are all well… only the casing seam came loose and now there’s a small gap between the front/back parts. But that doesn’t matter anyway, I’m just glad my data is safe and the machine still works.
Still, I can’t help but I wonder, […]

[Rumor] Future of HP notebook keyboards

By Brad Apr 6 2009 add comment

I heard a rumor (but it has nothing to do with Bananarama)… HP is moving towards using chiclet-style keyboards on future notebook PCs. Apparently the decision has something to do with improved ergonomics and the tactile feel of such keyboards. A little bird said that chiclet keyboards will first appear in the business and mini notebook lines in the next announcement of upgrades this year. Some models (Presumably higher end? Or as an option?) will have backlit keys. [/end of […]

HP Pavilion dv7 featured in Microsoft’s latest ad

By Brad Mar 30 2009 1 Comment

The HP Pavilion dv7 was recently featured in Microsoft’s latest “Lauren and the under-$1000 17 inch laptop ad“. As usual, many Apple/Mac fanboys are screaming and trying to enforce “Windows PCs are rubbish”, yet again. Is that not surprising? Somebody actually said the $699 HP Pavilion dv7 is a, quote, “crappy budget notebook”… excuse me? The HP Pavilion dv7 is a very capable notebook – you can watch videos, play games (intensive ones included) and do a whole […]

Steve Ballmer turns 53 today, days after his comment about “Apple tax” last week.
By the way, here’s a toast to more Windows market share and better Microsoft software (*ahem*Windows Mobile 7*ahem*)

HP Enviro Batteries now available

By Brad Mar 17 2009 add comment

HP made their new Enviro environmental-friendly lithium-ion notebook batteries available for sale today and you can pick one up for $150 each. HP says they last longer than typical notebook batteries and even throws in a 3 year warranty into the mix. The Enviro series battery is currently only available as a 6-cell unit for the latest HP Compaq (ie CQ40, CQ50), some HP Pavilion (ie dv4, dv5) and HP HDX notebook PCs. I’m surely looking forward to the day […]

External display problems with HP Mini’s?… yea right…

By Brad Mar 13 2009 1 Comment

I just read one of the trashiest news stories I’ve ever seen this morning – about lack of VGA adapters for the HP Mini 1000 and secondary display output problems from the HP Mini 2140; which implied that both problems were ever so serious and at large… this is coming from one of Apple’s biggest fansites disguised as a normal tech site. Mini 2140 secondary display output problems? Yea right… nothing wrong here, I can even connect an external 1920 […]

HP iPAQ Data Messenger still rocks in some ways

By Brad Mar 9 2009 19 Comments

Sure, it may not be the best darn Pocket PC phone out there (though HP may change that with newer phones later this year), but the HP iPAQ Data Messenger still has several reasons for existing iPAQ 612 or 912 owners to drop those models for this one. Even I’ve got to admit, coming from the iPAQ h6310 and hw6515/hw6915 phones, within my first DAY of using the iPAQ 612c, I thought “the iPAQ 612 sucks compared to previous HP […]

USBs, where more is better

By Brad Mar 2 2009 add comment

I think one of the most crucial factors of deciding on a notebook is the design of it. Now, I’m not talking about how visually appealing a notebook looks – many people come about their shopping decisions based on how “pretty” it looks. Unless it’s a small form factor netbook/sub-notebook device, of course; where what most people are looking for is a small and usable ‘typewriter’ for documents and some web surfing, with hours and hours of battery life.
I think […]
