  1. HP’s latest all-in-one comes with AI noise reduction The EliteOne 800 G8 has a sleek design and an optional pop-up webcam. HP HP has unveiled its latest all-in-one desktop PC. The company claims the EliteOne 800 G8 is the first commercial all-in-one to offer AI-based noise reduction and presence awareness, features that HP has included in some laptops. Presence awareness can automatically lock your PC when you move away and wake it up when you return. The system boasts several other security features, including cable lock support. The PC is available with a 23.8-inch or 27-inch display up to 2560x1440, with low-blue-light and anti-glare viewing. It has an optional pop-up, dual-facing 5MP webcam with variants that offer an IR camera and time of flight sensor. The camera can follow you and the system uses scene detection to adjust settings depending on light levels. There's a dynamic voice leveling feature as well, which will keep your voice volume consistent whether you're close to or further away from the microphone. The EliteOne 800 G8 supports up to 64GB of DDR4 3200 SDRAM and 2TB of SSD storage, while there are storage expansion slots. It comes with an 11th-gen Intel Core processor, up to i9. There are decent connectivity options, including two USB-C, three USB-A, DisplayPort, HDMI and Ethernet ports. There’s support for BlueTooth 5 and WiFi 6 as well. It might not be as colorful as the latest iMacs or boast Apple’s M1 chip, but if you’re looking for a Windows all-in-one, it might be worth considering. The EliteOne 800 G8 should be available in some regions this month. Source: HP’s latest all-in-one comes with AI noise reduction
  2. 2021 HP Envy x360 15 sports a larger trackpad and offers both AMD Ryzen 5000-U Cezanne and Intel 11th gen Tiger Lake options HP, today, introduced upgrades to its Envy x360 15 lineup. The 2021 HP Envy x360 now comes in AMD Ryzen 5000-U Cezanne and Intel 11th gen Core i5/Core i7 Tiger Lake offerings. The new Envy x360 models offer a few chassis design changes and also come with the option of a 4K OLED panel with 100% DCI-P3 coverage. HP Envy x360 15 gets AMD Ryzen Zen 3 and Intel Tiger Lake upgrades. (Image Source: HP) The 2020 HP Envy x360 2-in-1 received a decent recommendation in our reviews of both the Intel Comet Lake-U and AMD Renoir versions. This year, HP is introducing a refresh to the HP Envy x360 offering both Intel Tiger Lake and AMD Cezanne upgrades along with a few chassis design changes. The 2021 HP Envy x360 sports Bang and Olufsen-tuned speakers on either side of the keyboard deck instead of the top as in the 2020 version. Another minor change in this year's iteration is that both the Intel and AMD variants offer a similar placement of ports on either side. HP said that the touchpad area is now 19% larger compared to the previous generation and is properly centered. HP Envy x360 15 with AMD Ryzen Cezanne HP has two Envy x360 SKUs on offer powered by AMD's latest Cezanne Ryzen 5000-U processors. The Envy x360 eu15m-eu0013dx and eu15m-eu0023dx share an identical spec sheet. The only difference between the two models is that the 15m-eu0013dx is powered by an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U APU and comes with a 256 GB NVMe SSD while the 15m-eu0023dx offers an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U chip and a 512 GB NVMe SSD in the default configuration. Both variants offer 8 GB of dual-channel RAM, but the memory is not user upgradeable. The default configurations come with 15.6-inch FHD IPS touchscreens with a 250-nit brightness and 45% NTSC color gamut coverage. Buyers can also opt for a 4K OLED panel with a 100,000:1 contrast ratio and a 100% DCI-P3 coverage. HP says that all configurations come with factory-calibrated displays with a Delta E < 2. HP Display Control offers selecting optimal color profile depending on the use case. The Envy x360 models also offer HP Eyesafe to reduce harmful blue light emissions. HP Envy x360 15 AMD.

(Source: HP) HP Envy x360 15 with Intel Tiger Lake The Intel Tiger Lake variants of the HP Envy x360 come in Core i5-1135G7 (15m-es0013dx) and Core i7-1165G7 (15m-es0023dx) options. Similar to their AMD counterparts, both the Intel versions also share a similar spec sheet. However, there are few differences between the Intel and AMD versions themselves. The Intel variants offer Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (a proprietary variant that works with only certain Intel chipsets), and the Core i7 SKU offers 12 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM along with 512 GB PCIe storage and 32 GB Intel Optane memory. The Core i5 version, on the other hand, offers a 256 GB NVMe SSD. The Intel SKUs also implement a Thunderbolt 4 port that offers 40 Gbps throughput while AMD versions have to make do with a 10 Gbps USB Type-C port. HP Envy x360 15 Intel.

  3. HP is Acquiring HyperX for $425 Million In some unexpected news today, HP and HyperX (formerly a division of Kingston) have jointly released a statement that HP is to acquire HyperX gaming peripherals portfolio, and the brand, for $425 million USD. Kingston retains the DRAM, Flash, and SSD products (those that are branded HyperX will probably be renamed). Perhaps it is indicative that Kingston wants to remain focused on the memory and storage markets, and divest away from a variable commodity market, while at the same time HP is looking to boost its presence in the space alongside its HP OMEN branding. Pending regulatory review, the deal is expected to go close in Q2 2021, with the acquisition accretive on a non-GAAP to HP in the first full year. The HyperX peripheral line-up, which includes gaming headsets, microphones, keyboards, mouse pads, mice, power supplies, console accessories and apparel, is expected to be used by HP’s broader gaming ecosystem to expand potential add-ons for its OMEN series gaming desktops and laptops, as well as build that ecosystem for hardware, software, and services. HyperX as a brand has always been a distinct element somewhat separate from Kingston – over the last few years, every trade show we’ve attended we have made separate meetings for each company, whereas a decade ago we would cover both in the same room. This disaggregation of the business has obviously allowed Kingston to package it up should it ever need to offload, as it has now done with HP. Kingston still retains the gaming focused RGB-laden DRAM and SSD businesses, although these are likely to be sold either under Kingston or a separate new brand that we will learn about in due course. It is unclear whether HyperX sponsorships of eSports teams is also part of the deal, if those will transfer to HP, or they will remain with Kingston. In the press release, HP quotes that the PC hardware industry is set to have a $70 billion addressable market by 2023, with the global peripherals market (gaming and non-gaming) to grow to $12.4 billion by 2024. HP states that gaming peripherals will be a disproportionally large element of that year-on-year growth, and that HyperX’s brand recognition will help HP ‘advance its leadership in personal systems by modernizing compute experiences and expanding into valuable adjacencies’. In non-corporate speak, that just means that HP sees collective value in enabling its own systems with top-brand accessories to improve the overall experience. For a price, naturally, although there will no doubt be some synergies as HP can mothball some of its own HP OMEN peripherals that may not have had large distribution. With the deal expected to close in Q2, it will be interesting to see if HP does any brand reorganization with HyperX, such as ‘HyperX by HP’, or leave it as it is. If we get more information we will add to this news post. Source: https://press.hp.com/us/en/press-releases/2021/hp-inc-to-acquire-hyperx.html Source: HP is Acquiring HyperX for $425 Million
  4. HP launches laptops and monitors designed for work-from-home life HP's CES 2021 lineup. Image Credit: HP HP has had a long time to adjust its designs for pandemic conditions, and today at CES 2021 it is launching a whole slate of products aimed at enabling people to work better from home. They come with features aimed at improving privacy, collaboration, and sustainability (such as vegan leather). The products are targeted at people who are working from home, either as home IT managers or video bloggers (bloggers) who livestream to audiences, said Alex Cho, president of HP Personal Systems, in an interview with VentureBeat. All of it is aimed at showing the PC isn’t dead. It’s essential, with half the global workforce doing remote work. And during the pandemic, HP said its own survey is people are working seven hours more per week on their PCs. A small but important example of that is the HP Enhanced Lighting, a selfie light to customize and light up a person’s appearance in video calls. Working and staying at home isn’t always simple, with only 30% of people having a space where they can shut the door. Yet 72% of knowledge workers want a hybrid remote-office model moving forward and 48% of Gen Z (those born after 1996) are considering an expansion of their freelance businesses. New laptops Above: HP Dragonfly Max laptop alongside a big curved monitor. Image Credit: HP Among the highlights is the HP Elite Dragonfly Max, which is designed for videoconferencing. It has a 5-megapixel camera with infrared, and it has four wide-range microphones with AI-driven audio optimization. It comes in black or blue, and it has HP Eye Ease for its display, which blocks blue light that can take a toll on the ability to sleep properly. HP also created the HP Elite Wireless Earbuds for collaboration while being quiet. The earbuds have personalized audio tuning, adjustable noise cancellation, and sound situation presets. You can use them for anything from conference calls to listening to music on a phone. It will be offered as a bundle option with the Elite Dragonfly Max. The company also created its first pull-forward business convertible laptop, the HP Elite Folio, which adapts to the way people transition between work and life. It uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform to deliver optional 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi6, and up to 24.5 hours of video playback. It has a magnesium unibody design and a webcam with a 76-degree field of view, a dual-microphone array, and speakers from Bang & Olufsen. It has a 13.5-inch diagonal display with HP Sure View Reflect privacy panel and an HD webcam with a built-in privacy shutter. It is fanless and has a quiet keyboard, as no one wants to hear you typing on a Zoom call. It also has an HP Elite Slim Active Pen with integrated charging cradle and storage. You can use it in tablet, laptop, or media modes, and it has a soft vegan leather. The HP Elite Dragonfly G2 is designed to give people the freedom to move around the house as a compact business convertible with a starting weight at less than a kilogram, or 2.2 pounds. It is also made with finishes and accets that use recycled material, including ocean-bound plastics. It uses the latest 11th Gen Intel Core processors and new Intel integrated graphics and allows users to stay connected through impressively fast 5G or gigabit-class 4G LTE connectivity, with Tile location tracking now built in. The Dragonfly Blue chassis is a convertible 2-in-1 with an easy-to-clean design, for when you spill coffee all over your device. It has sound by Bang & Olufsen, with AI to maximize the audio experience for speech, music, and movies. HP’s new intrusion detection technology, HP Tamper Lock, locks the PC if it has been physically opened or compromised and notifies the user. The HP EliteBook 840 G8 Aero gives people the freedom to move and meet the demands of their multi-task, multi-place workday, HP said. With a starting weight under 2.5 pounds, it uses 11th Gen Intel Core processors, integrated Tile, Wi-Fi 6, and optional 5G LTE connectivity options. It has an integrated 720p HD camera, world-facing third microphone, top-firing speakers, and AI-based audio. It has an HP Privacy Camera and optional HP Sure View Reflect to protect against visual hacking. The design features a new magnesium chassis that contains 90% recycled materials, recycled plastics, and 100% sustainably sourced packaging to reduce environmental impact. Creativity focus Above: HP Envy 14 debuts at CES 2021. Image Credit: HP For some people, working from home requires more creativity. HP said the top three tasks include photography, writing stories or articles, and livestreaming. For this crowd, HP has a new HP Envy 14, a new “mobile personal creative studio. The laptop has a 14-inch diagonal screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It has an optional WUXGA (1920 x 1200) multi-touch enabled IPS display allows for an 11% greater viewing area than a traditional 16:9 laptop. This is also HP’s first 14-inch diagonal laptop featuring color calibration with Delta E <2 for color accuracy. You can easily adjust display settings depending on the creative scenario with HP Display Control. It uses 11th Gen Intel Core processors and up to Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q design graphics via four different settings in HP System Control. It has an advanced thermal solution using an IR thermopile sensor within HP Performance Control. You can allocate power between the CPU and GPU with HP Dynamic Power. And it gets up to 16.5 hours of battery life. And it includes a physical shutter for the webcam, a dedicated mute microphone key on the keyboard, and features AI Noise Removal to intelligently mute background noise when using speakers, headphones, or the microphone during video chats, audio calls, and recordings.

  6. Xerox makes official tender offer for HP at $24 per share Xerox has been aggressively pursuing an acquisition of HP's business for the past few months, and HP has continually refused to be acquired on Xerox's terms. In light of the pushback, Xerox already proposed a full replacement of HP's Board of Directors, nominating a slate of independent directors that it believes would be more likely to see the value of the proposal. Last month, Xerox said it planned to make a tender offer for HP's outstanding shares, and today, it did exactly that. The tender offer values HP at $24 per share, $18.40 of which are in cash, and the remaining being equivalent to 0.149 Xerox shares for each HP share. With the offer, HP shareholders would get $27 billion in immediate cash, in addition to then owning a portion of Xerox shares. John Visentin, CEO and vice-chairman of Xerox, commented on the proposal: “Our proposal offers progress over entrenchment (...). HP shareholders will receive $27 billion in immediate, upfront cash while retaining significant, long-term upside through equity ownership in a combined company with greater free cash flow to invest in growth and return to shareholders.” Xerox also announced that it has also gathered financing support from more entities, including MUFG, PNC, and Crédit Agricole, in addition to Bank of America, Citi, and Mizuho, who had already committed $24 billion to help the business go through. The financing amount hasn't increased, but it's now backed by more agencies. Xerox's offer is on the table until April 21, 2020, at 5PM Eastern Time, but Xerox says the deadline can be extended. This should be just in time for HP's annual shareholder meeting, which was at the end of April last year. Source: Xerox makes official tender offer for HP at $24 per share (Neowin)
  7. HP, Dell, other tech firms plan to shift production out of China: Nikkei FILE PHOTO: The Hewlett-Packard (HP) logo is seen as part of a display at the Microsoft Ignite technology conference in Chicago, Illinois, May 4, 2015. REUTERS/Jim Young/File Photo (Reuters) - Several major U.S.-based technology companies are planning to shift substantial production out of China, spurred by a bitter trade war between Washington and Beijing, the Nikkei reported on Wednesday, citing sources. Personal computer makers HP Inc (HPQ.N) and Dell Technologies (DELL.N) are planning to reallocate up to 30% of their notebook production out of China, according to the Nikkei. Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O), Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), Sony Corp (6758.T) and Nintendo Co Ltd (7974.T) are also looking at moving some of their game console and smart speaker manufacturing out of the country, the Nikkei added s.nikkei.com/2JjAMcM. U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping struck a truce at last weekend’s Group of 20 summit in Japan, paving the way for a restart in trade talks after months of stalemate. However, the companies are not likely to alter their plans of moving some of their production out of China as they also face higher operating costs in the country. In June, Apple Inc (AAPL.O) asked its major suppliers to assess the cost implications of moving 15%-30% of their production capacity from China to Southeast Asia as it prepares for a restructuring of its supply chain, Nikkei had reported last month. HP, Dell, Amazon, Microsoft and Google did not immediately respond to a Reuters’ request for comment. Source: HP, Dell, other tech firms plan to shift production out of China: Nikkei
  8. (Reuters) - Dell Technologies Inc, HP Inc, Microsoft Corp and Intel Corp on Wednesday opposed U.S. President Donald Trump’s proposal to include laptop computers and tablets among the Chinese goods targeted for tariffs. Dell, HP and Microsoft, which together account for 52% of the notebooks and detachable tablets sold in the United States, said the proposed tariffs would increase the cost of laptops in the country. The move would hurt consumers and the industry, and would not address the Chinese trade practices that the Trump administration’s office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) seeks to remedy, the four companies said in a joint statement posted online. Implementing the proposed tariffs would increase U.S. prices for laptops and tablets by at least 19%, or around $120 for the average retail price of a laptop, the companies said, citing a recent study by the Consumer Technology Association. “A price increase of that magnitude may even put laptop devices entirely out of reach for our most cost-conscious consumers,” the companies said, noting that the price hikes would occur during peak holiday and back-to-school seasons. In a separate statement, Microsoft, along with video game makers Nintendo of America Inc and Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC said the tariffs on video game consoles could stifle innovation, hurt consumers and put thousands of jobs at risk. The USTR kicked off seven days of testimony from U.S. retailers, manufacturers and other businesses about Trump’s plan to hit another $300 billion worth of Chinese goods with tariffs. The hearings will end on June 25 and the tariffs will not come into effect until after July 2, when a seven-day final rebuttal comment period ends. Source
  9. U.K. entrepreneur turned billionaire investor Mike Lynch has been charged with fraud in the U.S. over the 2011 sale of his enterprise software company. Lynch sold Autonomy, the big data company he founded back in 1996, to computer giant HP for around $11 billion some seven years ago. But within a year around three-quarters of the value of the business had been written off, with HP accusing Autonomy’s management of accounting misrepresentations and disclosure failures. Lynch has always rejected the allegations, and after HP sought to sue him in U.K. courts he countersued in 2015. Meanwhile, the U.K.’s own Serious Fraud Office dropped an investigation into the Autonomy sale in 2015 — finding “insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction.” But now the DoJ has filed charges in a San Francisco court, accusing Lynch and other senior Autonomy executives of making false statements that inflated the value of the company. They face 14 counts of conspiracy and fraud, according to Reuters — a charge that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. We’ve reached out to Lynch’s fund, Invoke Capital, for comment on the latest development. The BBC has obtained a statement from his lawyers, Chris Morvillo of Clifford Chance and Reid Weingarten of Steptoe & Johnson, which describes the indictment as “a travesty of justice,” The statement also claims Lynch is being made a scapegoat for HP’s failures, framing the allegations as a business dispute over the application of U.K. accounting standards. Two years ago we interviewed Lynch onstage at TechCrunch Disrupt London and he mocked the morass of allegations still swirling around the acquisition as “spin and bullshit.” Following the latest developments, the BBC reports that Lynch has stepped down as a scientific adviser to the U.K. government. “Dr. Lynch has decided to resign his membership of the CST [Council for Science and Technology] with immediate effect. We appreciate the valuable contribution he has made to the CST in recent years,” a government spokesperson told it. Source

  11. He will be replaced by Enrique Lores. image:HP, CEO Dion Weisler Following four years at the helm of HP, CEO Dion Weisler will step down in November. The Palo Alto-based PC maker today announced that its Australian chief executive will be leaving his role due to "family health" reasons. Enrique Lores, the current president of HP's printing and imaging solutions arm, will take Weisler's place. Weisler will continue to serve on HP's board of directors until the next annual meeting of shareholders. "Serving as CEO of HP is the highlight of my career, and I want to thank the entire HP team for the support they have shown me. I'm incredibly proud of what we have achieved and equally confident in where we are heading as a company," said Weisler in a statement. "Enrique has been a tremendous partner whose leadership has been instrumental in setting this company up for success and delivering on our strategy. He is one of the smartest people I know, and I have great confidence in his ability to lead and inspire the next chapter of HP's transformation and growth." Weisler came to led HP during a tough time for both the company and the global PC market. The Australian took over HP after a 2015 move to split the company into two; one that sells PCs, and one that sells computer servers, data storage gear and services for corporate IT departments. That same year, global PC sales also suffered their worst decline in history. Enrique Lores, who joined HP as an intern 30 years ago, has headed up the company's printing business since 2015. The company said that Lores worked on a global review of HP's strategy and business operations, which he will present to investors in October. Source
  12. Goldman Sachs downgrades the three big tech stocks Thursday Enterprise spending will continue to “deteriorate,” according to Goldman Sachs, and that could pose problems for several large tech stocks. Cisco Systems Inc. CSCO, -1.47% is one of the key companies at risk, Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall wrote Thursday, as he expects challenges both with enterprise spending and telecom spending. His research indicated weaker enterprise spending overall in August and September with expectations for further “deterioration” into October and November. “We believe that most of this weakness relates to a lack of business confidence at large enterprise driven by trade volatility as opposed to a broader macro slowdown,” Hall wrote. For Cisco specifically, he points to the company’s 2% drop in enterprise product orders in the July quarter, a trend he expects to worsen heading into the election season. Hall downgraded Cisco’s stock to neutral from buy on Thursday, lowering his price target on the shares to $48 from $56. He has a more negative view of HP Inc. HPQ, -2.26% and NetApp Inc. NTAP, -3.10%, both of which he downgraded to sell from neutral, citing expectations for enterprise struggles. On HP, Hall worries that the commercial PC market will weaken in 2020 as the Windows 10 migration cycle ends. He draws a comparison to 2014, when the commercial PC market saw a double-digit drop in the wake of strong growth driven by the Windows 7 migration cycle. Such pain this time around would add to “already weak” consumer PC performance, in Hall’s view. “While we don’t believe we are yet into a broad consumer downturn we do continue to pick up data points suggesting regional weakness in Europe and Asia,” he wrote. Hall’s expectation that trade fears and economic uncertainty will weigh on enterprise spending also threatens to hurt NetApp, which has also been struggling with execution issues. “We believe NetApp’s [Enterprise License Agreement] guidance of 2% of total revenue in FY’20, which is heavily second-half loaded, may be hard to achieve given that these deals tend to be more prevalent with larger enterprise customers,” he wrote. NetApp’s stock is off 1.8% in Thursday morning trading, while HP’s stock is down 1.9% and Cisco’s is down 2% on a day when the broad market is rising. The S&P 500 index SPX, +0.64% is up 0.9% in Thursday’s session and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.57%, of which Cisco is a component, is up 0.9%. Source
  13. At an event in New York City today, HP announced the HP Spectre Folio, a convertible with a leather-bound cover and palm rest. It will start at $1,299.99 with a Core i5 processor and jump to $1,499.99 for Core i7 and LTE capability. It is available for pre-order now and will go on sale at Best Buy on October 29. The display opens like a laptop, but can fold forward over the keyboard as a “forward” stand and fold flat like a tablet. The company claims that it will offer 18 hours of battery life. The Spectre Folio uses Intel’s 8th Core i5 and Core i7 Amber Lake-Y CPUs and a narrow, custom-made motherboard, which HP claims is one of the smallest in the industry, making more room for a bigger battery. HP vice president of product management Josephine Tan said it's also the first Intel-based LTE laptop that can support gigabit download speeds. In the U.S., the laptop will connect to AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. LTE in Europe and Asia will come in 2019. The Folio uses a 13.3-inch, FHD touchscreen that the company claims will go up to 400 nits of brightness. A 4K option will be available later this year. The laptops will come with up to 16GB of memory and up to 2TB of SSD storage. The convertible also comes with a stylus dubbed The Tilt Pen, which offers 4,096 levels of sensitivity, a digital eraser and shading via its tilt functionality. In our hands-on with the device, I was a little worried about how the leather will hold up over time. On the one hand, it can develop a nice patina, but it could also potentially rip or tear (which has happened with my watchband). The keyboard popped nicely, but seemed a little stiff. The company said it “looked beyond conventional PC design” in creating the new machine. HP design head Stacy Wolff said that leather is “timeless,” and that the material is what it allows for it to be flexible. HP describes the leather as a “soft chassis,” where the battery, keyboard and touchpad are housed. A harder “upper chassis” is where the motherboard and display live. The keyboard, which is aluminum, will come in both a traditional black as well as a bright, clean white. We'll be able to tell you more when the Folio shows up in our labs for testing. Source
  14. Today, Microsoft confirmed that HP keyboard driver (version 11.0.3.1) with compatibility issues on Windows 10 versions 1803 and 1809 was recently pushed out to some HP devices and it resulted in a blue screen error. Microsoft has already pulled the driver from Windows Update and if you own HP computers, you will not receive the keyboard driver anymore. Microsoft is also rolling out Windows 10 KB4468304 that would remove the incompatible driver from devices with a pending reboot. HP is also aware of the issue and the company is working on this issue. In the support document, Microsoft explains that HP keyboard driver (version 11.0.3.1) has a known incompatibility with certain HP devices and it may result in a blue screen error: WDF_VIOLATION. “In working with HP, Microsoft has identified an HP driver with known incompatibility with certain HP devices on Windows 10 versions 1803 and 1809. On October 11, Microsoft removed the driver from Windows Update to reduce the number of devices affected. Additionally, we have released KB 4468304 to remove the incompatible driver from devices pending reboot. HP is actively working on this issue,” Microsoft explains. Source
  15. HP is recalling even more laptops for ‘fire and burn hazards’ caused by faulty batteries The government shutdown interfered with the news getting out in a timely fashion Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Some HP laptops continue to suffer from faulty batteries that may cause “fire and burn damage,” according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. As noted by CNET and Tom’s Hardware, the HP recall was first initiated in January of 2018 and then expanded in January of this year, but that most recent development failed to make headlines because the government shutdown interfered with the CPSC’s ability to communicate the expansion. “This recall expansion was previously announced independently on January 17, 2019 by the firm due to US government furlough,” reads the CPSC’s website dedicated to the HP recall, which was updated on Tuesday of this week to include news of the most recent January 2019 expansion. The new recall date is now March 12th, 2019, and it includes an additional 28,500 laptop units on top of the 50,000 initially announced back in early 2018. According to the CPSC, “HP has received eight new reports of battery packs in the US overheating, melting, or charring, including one report of minor injury and two reports of property damage totaling $1,100.” Here’s a full list of the models, which includes some laptops HP sold as early as April 2015 and as late as December of last year: The recall expansion involves lithium-ion batteries for HP commercial notebook computers and mobile workstations were sold to businesses and other organizations. The batteries were shipped with or sold as accessories for HP ProBooks (64x G2 and G3 series, 65x G2 and G3 series, 4xx G4 series), HPx360 (310 G2), HP Pavilion x360 11inch Notebook PC, HP 11 Notebook PC, HP ZBook (17 G3, and Studio G3) mobile workstations. The batteries were also sold as accessories or replacement batteries for the HP ZBook Studio G4 mobile workstation, HP ProBook 4xx G5 series, HP ENVY 15, HP Mobile Thin Clients (mt21, mt22, and mt31), or for any of the products listed above. Faulty battery woes have long plagued HP laptops, with seemingly annual recall announcements and expansions dating back to 2016 and totaling nearly 250,000 units. It’s not exactly clear what the main issue is here. But HP has a website set up for helping customers figure out if their computer has a faulty battery and guiding them through the process of submitting it for a complimentary replacement. Source
  16. Shares of PC giant HP Inc. surged in late trading as the company delivered fiscal Q4 revenue and profit that easily topped analysts' expectations, and forecast this quarter's profit higher as well. CEO Enrique Lores called the quarter a "strong" one, noting "record unit shipments in the quarter, reflecting the important role HP technology is playing in the lives of our customers." Added Lores, "Our results give us great confidence in our ability to drive long-term growth and shareholder value in 2021 and beyond." Revenue in the three months ended in October fell by 1%, year over year, to $15.26 billion, yielding EPS of 62 cents. That compares to consensus for $14.71 billion and 52 cents per share. Revenue from notebook computers surged by 18%, year over year, and up 1% from the prior quarter, to $7.4 billion. Revenue from desktops and workstations, however, dropped sharply, by 28% and 45%, respectively. Total Personal Systems revenue was flat with the prior-year period at $10.43 billion, and up 1% from Q3's level. Printing revenue declined 3% from the year-earlier period, to $4.8 billion, but was up by a double-digits percentage amount from Q3's level. During the company's conference call with analysts this evening, Lores noted in prepared remarks that sales in Personal Systems were especially strong in the category of "consumer premium" PCs, which rose by 29%. Consumer displays and accessories sales were up 59%, he pointed out. And revenue and units from sales of Chromebooks more than doubled, Lores said. Lores said he was "very pleased" with the pace of the printing business in the quarter. For the current quarter, the company sees earnings per share in a range of 64 cents to 70 cents, ahead of consensus for 57 cents. Lores told analysts on the call that parts shortages continue to be a challenge. "We exited the quarter with an elevated backlog and continued to operate with component supply shortages, which are expected to constrain our growth through the first half of 2021," he said. HP shares rose over 8% to $23.56 in late trading. Source
