A few weeks ago here in NYC I was able to get a look at some of the new displays HP announced today. These displays offer some of the best picture quality I have seen from a computer monitor.
Due to the technology HP uses on their monitors you can look at them from pretty much any angle and still see what’s displayed, unlike traditional LCD’s which look dark or black when looking at them from an odd angle.
HP Is still looking for people to participate in their ink challenge.Those who would like to participate must be willing to complete a few task for HP. HP will provide you with a printer, ink and paper.

Today HP introduced an updated version of their sleek and stylish Pavilion dm1 and guess what? It’s gotten even sleeker and more stylish than before.
The new dm1 features up to 11.5 hours of battery life, rapid on (when in sleep mode) an 11.6” LED display with a built in HD webcam, HP Beats by Dr. Dre Audio. The Pavilion dm1 will be powered by an AMD E-Series APU or an Intel 2nd Gen Core processor.
HP today announced a plethora of All-in-One Pcs with everyone in mind. There are new TouchSmarts, to just plain ole non touch all-in-ones, and they are all reasonably priced.
“The popularity of the all-in-one form factor continues to grow, and HP’s contribution to this market is significant. We continue to expand our portfolio to remain the global leader in Windows-based all-in-one PCs, introducing innovation that matters to business customers and consumers alike.” said Todd Bradley Executive VP of the HP Personal Systems Group (PSG).
Today the HP 12c calculator has turned 30, a calculator so great and powerful that there are rumors in the industry that Texas Instruments used the 12C to verify that their calculators gave our the correct answer.
The HP 12c calculator was the first calculator to offer a landscape layout, computations more accurate than federal standards and extremely easy to use. So easy and so accurate to use that 30 years after its launch it is still used today by financial experts around the world. It’s also really fast at computing, and from what I have heard up to 150 times faster than the competition. Oh and some users also report a battery life of 20 + years.
Today HP announced a newly designed business desktop PC. The HP Pro 3400 Microtower Desktop PC. The system is aimed at corporate customers looking to save space but still offer their employees the processing power they need.

The starting price for the 3400 is $421.00 making it an affordable system for any sized business.

I will be the first to admit it I own an iPhone, owned an iPad but could care less about Apple. On the other had I really like HP and I think Palm is ok. So when the HP Palm aquasition was announced a flurry of thoughts ran though my head. Countless product designs ran through my head as I thought about the first Tablet tablet from HP would most likely run WebOS. (Their first true tablet ran Android instead damn those printer people).
When Palm first showed off WebOS on the Pre i loved it, it had a bit of a learning curve and took a bit to get use too, but I liked it. Then they updated it and made it better I was stocked.
So when the July 1st release date for the TouchPad was announced I was excited, I couldn’t wait. I knew WebOS was a great mobile OS, I was a bit familiar with it and I was excited that a company I like was coming out with a Tablet.
Luxury! That is the word that comes to mind when I look at the HP ProBook 6560b. Luxury! Yeah that’s it. It’s a luxurious machine, and it sort of looks like that limosine the president rides.
I personally can’t remember any other device that looks as rugged and luxurious at the same time as the ProBook 6560b does. It’s a beats a beautiful beast and a powerful one too. It has a nice metalic brushed finish, that feels as good as it looks. When you look at it you can tell right away its a solid machine.
Powered by an Intel core i5 processor and 4GB of memory running on Windows 7, the ProBook 6560b delivers enough power to handle my day to day activities with ease. Every machine I receive for review I like to test it by actually using it. I do not like running benchmarks as I do not believe they give a realistic view of how well a machine can perform.
Small business is big business for a lot of OEMS like HP, so they have lines designed specifically for the small business user. In fact some of their small business products look like their consumer products and vice versa as they from time to time share design ideas.
The HP 100B is an example of that; it’s a great looking machine in the design that the HP Touchsmart PC made so popular.
Powered by a dual core AMD processor 1.6 Ghz and with 2 GB of memory upgradeable to 8 GB. The HP should deliver enough power to handle day simple to day task, but there really is only one way to find out if it can or not. So I did what I always do, I made it my day to day machine.
