Nvidia Quadro K1100M appears in upgraded HP Omen Pro
HP has unveiled an upgraded professional model of last year's Omen gaming notebook. The Omen Pro is billed as a high-powered mobile workstation that borrows the styling of the original, but manages to pack in higher-performance components inside its 19.9mm (0.78 inches) thick, 4.68-pound anodized aluminum unibody frame, including an Nvidia Quadro K1100M GPU with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory.
Voodoo Envy 133 and Omen
HP's performance label Voodoo PC today launched a complete overhaul of tis designs with systems that directly challenge the design aesthetics of the MacBook Air and the Mac Pro. The Envy 133 notebook joins both the Air and the ThinkPad X300 in the newer class of ultra-thin but still fast portables: the use of an LED-backlit screen and a carbon fiber chassis help the Envy measure 0.7 inches thick at every point while weighing under 3.4 pounds. A new generation of Intel's notebook platform helps reach these dimensions while still supplying speed, the company says. Voodoo's design is also the third after those from Apple and ASUS to sport a multi-touch trackpad with support for pinching and scrolling.
