HP has released the world’s first 2-in-1 convertible mobile workstation. The HP ZBook X2 aims to bring high performance into a versatile form factor that’s also familiar to professionals already proficient to drawing tablets.
The ZBook X2’s design borrows much from today’s drawing tablets. The ZBook X2 has a column of function buttons on either side of the display, much like many high-end drawing tabs do. An adjustable kickstand at the rear lets the user’s hands rest in a comfortable position.
To provide the best experience for artists and designers, HP has opted for a 14-inch 4K IPS panel that covers 100% of the Adobe [...]
Autonomous, the makers behind the sitting/standing Smart Desk, has recently launched the third iteration of their Smart Desk series, the Autonomous Smart Desk 3. Autonomous claims that the Smart Desk 3 is the world’s first AI powered workstation and you’ll soon see why.
With the original Smart Desk and the Smart Desk 2, Autonomous focused on perfecting their Smart Desk’s main function which was to simply move up and down for both sitting and standing use. With the Smart Desk 3, Autonomous has now also integrated a tablet directly into the desk itself.
The tablet is a 7-inch tablet which sits flush on the table to the left of the user. The [...]
Microsoft’s Surface Studio is pretty cool. The 28-inch all-in-one desktop that instantly turns into a large canvas for drawing certainly drew a lot of attention when it was revealed last year, but there’s a couple major problems with it. First, you’ll have to fork out at least $3,000 for just the base model and second, you’re locked into the existing hardware with little to no upgrade path within just a few years.
To solve this issue, Dell revealed the Canvas 27, which is a solution that provides all the benefits the Surface Studio provides, but removes all the limitations. The Dell Canvas 27 is a massive pen display sporting a 27-inch Adobe [...]
Love ’em or hate ’em, Dell has without a doubt become one of the most innovative laptop makers in the market. Its latest move is a refresh of its entire Latitude line of business-centric laptops with the new Latitude 7000-series leading the way.
The newest 12″ 2-in-1 in the Latitude series is the Dell Latitude 7285. Internally, it can be configured with up to an Intel Core i7-7Y75 mobile CPU, 16GB of ram, and 256GB of SSD storage. It’s also a 2-in-1 which allows it to easily shift from tablet to laptop mode.
So far, it sounds pretty normal, but the most interesting part about the Latidude 7285 is that it’s also capable of [...]

A keylogging vulnerability has been discovered in HP laptop’s audio driver, says the independent Swiss security firm Modzero.
The security concern stems from the way the audio driver handles inputs from media control keys. The driver process, called MicTray64.exe, records when media keys are pressed and change settings accordingly.
This is harmless on its own, but the problem is that the driver also writes keystrokes to a text file called MicTray.log. If the file is obtained, the attacker can extract personal information such as passwords and credit card numbers.
The situation is made worse when the MicTray.log is not created or doesn’t [...]
Shortly after revealing Windows 10 S and the Surface Laptop, Microsoft is planning to “show the world what’s next”, this time in Shanghai.
The theme of this event is unclear. The barren teaser site starkly features an image of Shanghai city and #MicrosoftEvent banner.
Microsoft fans have their fingers crossed for an updated Surface Pro. Despite an excellent quarter, Microsoft saw a 26% dip in Surface revenue. A refresh on the Surface Pro 4 is desperately needed, and a new Surface Book can’t hurt either. Many are also holding out on the possibility of a Surface Phone.
The event is just three weeks away, so more information [...]
