CES 2014: HP Pro x2 410 is a Laptop and Tablet In One

HP Pro x2 410


HP is turning heads at CES 2014 with all of their new releases, this time, with the HP Pro x2 410 and the HP 350 G1. The Pro x2 410 lives up to its name as it’s actually a laptop and a tablet in one. It’s a “true” tablet in the sense that the keyboard can actually be detached so the screen portion can be used as a tablet. The device will be made available with several options, including a fourth-generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor. Users can choose from either a 64, 128, or 256GB solid state disk for file storage.

The Pro x2 410 also comes equipped with an Intel HD Graphics 4200 integrated GPU and HDMI 1.4a. The laptop-tablet hybrid is available now at $899.


I Have Another Post Up On HP’s Site

Hey guys, I’m still not fired from that HP gig! This makes me happy because it pays some bills, and actually makes me try to write well. You know, as opposed to the swill I usually feed you guys… No, I kid, I kid, I love you all and try hard here too! But I’m supposed to let you know about these posts so that more people than the stiff enterprise types read them, so do me a favor and check out my article. It’s about 6 medical gadgets. Because we all like living, but it’s even better when we live with good health. And well, when you marry that concern with a love for consumer electronics, you end up creating the kinds of devices I decided to write about. So uh, yeah, check it out.

Check Out My New Post About Home Automation That I Wrote For HP

So I didn’t get fired from my gig at HP. This makes me happy, but it also means that whenever I have an article up, I get to tell you guys about it. Those articles are longer, more researched and generally fun to read if you’re into the more intellectual sounding stuff. This time around it was about home automation, and to find out what I came up with, you just have to click below.

HP RED Z820 Workstation Is A Large Caliber Video Editing Machine

By David Ponce

You can take videos with your iPhone and try to do fancy things with iMovie, and you’ll get some cute results. But make no mistake about it, you’re not going to win any photography awards that way. If you’ve got the bankroll to do things right, you might have purchased a RED camera. Whether it’s the Scarlet, the Epic or even the One, you made the right decision. But you might also have noticed the reams of data that even a few minutes of shooting produces. This serious data needs a serious machine for editing and if you already splurged on a RED camera, why not go the extra mile and drop a few more dollars on the HP RED Z820 workstation? A partnership between HP and RED, the Z280 packs some raw horsepower:

It comes equipped with up to two RED Mag card readers to make things plug and play, as well as a RED Rocket booster card allowing any would be Ridley Scott’s to create an immersive 3D world. Processing power comes in the form of twin Intel Sandy Bridge E5-2687 chips resulting in 16 liquid cooled cores, configurable up to 3.1GHz with Turbo boost to kick things up to 3.91GHz. While 32GB of RAM is standard, you can turn that into 128GB with the tick of a box. A single SSD boot drive is standard as well as an NVIDIA Quadro 5000 video card, with upgrades available. You can even option a Blu-Ray burner for straight to video releases.

Pricing has not be announced yet while availability is set for July. It looks like one of those “if you have to ask…” kind of products, but then again, so are the cameras. So, well heeled cinematographers, below are links you could find useful.
