This week at Adobe MAX, HP unveiled the ZBook x2. Its most powerful detachable PC so far. Billed as HP's first detachable PC workstation, the ZBook x2 is targeted at artists, designers and digital imaging professionals and will be released in Australia in late December.

About a month ago, Intel announced its new 8th-gen CPUs, so we put together a little roundup of all the coolest notebooks getting new Core silicon. But one company was notably left off the list, because it didn't have anything to share at that time. Now, HP is finally ready to show off its new Spectre and Spectre x360, and even though the saying goes beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I think it's HP -- not Apple, Dell or Microsoft -- that's now making the best looking laptops on the market.

The astronomical prices printer makers charge for cartridges have long been a favourite subject of internet comedians (with more than one noting that printer ink is now more valuable than gold), so it came as a bit of a surprise when HP actually made some concessions after pushing out an update that bricked unofficial ink cartridges last year. Unfortunately, it seems HP has now returned to its iron-fisted ways, once again locking down the use of third-party ink with a software update.

Announced over a year ago, the HP Elite X3 took its time coming to market. It's an ambitious "three in one", a phone, laptop and desktop replacement, with enough power to accomplish most regular tasks in any configuration.

After spending some time with HP's redesigned 15-inch Spectre x360, it seems to me the company's recipe for clawing its way back into the hearts of the people should have been obvious all along: lots of power and features in an attractive package for less money than the competition. Duh.

We all have those people in our lives. You know the ones. They're on top of their work and social lives and never turn up to the office with coffee spilled down the front of their shirts.

They're accomplished for a reason. They recognise that the morning sets the entire tone for the rest of the day and utilise it in effective ways. We don't expect you to nail all of these immediately, but here are some of the most popular and time friendly morning habits of successful CEOs and business leaders.

It's the start of the work year (January doesn't really count) and you promised yourself that you'd be more productive. But you quickly find yourself getting distracted by Facebook and cat videos on YouTube.

It's okay, we've all fallen into this trap. But it IS possible to change the way you tackle work, and it takes less than 30 minutes. It's time to introduce your brain to the Pomodoro Technique.

The term 'laptop' has become a wide-ranging one -- it covers a variety of portable rigs that vary in their specs. This is great in terms of the amount of options out there, but can be confusing if you're not quite sure what to get.

When it comes to down to it, size really does matter, and it should be at the centre of your decision making process.

It's a new year -- time for a fresh start, and some fresh tech for work or uni.

Laptops are becoming increasingly versatile, powerful and thinner. The market is flooded with options and it can be tricky to pick what will be right for you.

That's where the specs come in. If you're not quite sure what all those letters and numbers mean, here are the most important ones.

With the month of December comes a whole bunch of deals to tempt your wallet. Microsoft is getting in on the action, too, and the first of its 12 days of end-of-year bargains is a pretty decent saving on a pretty decent everyday laptop from HP.

If you've got a whole bunch of money and you want a gaming PC, HP wants to know you. Its unconventional Omen X cube PC case is on show at PAX Australia in Melbourne this weekend, and you can see all the high-end kit inside and the bells and whistles that it boasts.

Last week, we reported that HP had released firmware for some of its inkjet printers that blocked the use of replacement third-party replacement ink cartridges. Consumer advocacy group CHOICE even launched an investigation into whether HP broke Australian Consumer Laws with this move. Now HP has come out to apology to customers, not for making its printers unusable with unofficial cartridges, but for not being upfront about it. The company also plans to release firmware to remove the block on third-party catridges. Here are the details.

Remember when laptops were laptops and tablets were tablets? Well, those days are gone, replaced with acrobatic foldables, detachables, and liquid-cooled enigmas. Buying a new computing machine has never been such a strange decision as it is today, so we decided to round up the very strangest hybrid devices out there and see if they really were the next evolutionary machine of the laptop genus.
