It's about time for me to get back to the fast lane, using mobile workstation, after a year relying on my good old HP Envy 14 Spectre, aside from my HP 8760w. The Envy 14 had been serving me very well in every day's task, and it's time for it to take a break. Just got the new HP Zbook 14 around a week ago. The extra work would be migrating all data to this new speeding notebook.
So, by not wasting lots of time, I started to back up everything on my Envy 14, and prepare it to be migrated to the new ZBook 14. Aaaaah, ....... there's nothing like a peace and quite midnight to start migrating all my data.
It's been few days since I've been putting some real-world practical tests on to the new HP Pro x2 410 G1 hybrid notebook. Yes, it's the new HP ultrathin notebook hybrid that could easily transform to Windows 8.1 tablet.
Since I've been using HP Mobile Workstations (the only notebook that doesn't fit to Mobile Workstation category yet I admire so much, is my HP Envy 14 Spectre) for years, once I had my hands on the HP Pro x2, I didn't have high expectation on it. Frankly speaking, I just wanna put some benchmark tests to see how it compared to other tablets and business notebooks. In the end, I'm quite surprised of what this new business product from HP can do. I decided to carry it along with me in some business meetings and presentations, and finish some of my daily tasks.
Back in 2005 when HP made it released to public, the HP XW9300 Workstation was the King of The Hill. Not only equipped with Dual AMD Opteron Gen1 Processors, it accommodated Nvidia Quadro FX 4800, as the top-tier professional OpenGL graphics accelerator. Somehow, when I went to my "playground" (actually it used to be our demo and presentation room), my eyes got dragged to my old XW9300. It recalled few snapshots when most of workstation community users in Indonesia admired that particular workstation. Some questions surfaced "Can that thing operate now? How does it compare to other current HP Workstations? Should I bring it to life again?". Well, frankly speaking, I'm still building few RC planes now, inspired by some drones out there. But, my curiosity led me approaching that workstation.
If you use your smartphone, there are many ways in adjusting, tweaking and optimizing it to make sure that you have enough battery juice to power your smartphone the whole day. An additional way is bringing a portable power bank close to your smartphone. Let's have a look on some issues I encountered myself, on my daily work. I won't be mentioning every single of them, but only few that attracted my attention the most.
Most Engineers and Graphics Artists choose HP Workstations as their Performance Rig to complete their tasks. It's always good to have the chance to get the latest HP Workstation or even HP Mobile Workstation. Before investment is made, mostly lots of discussions are being conducted along with IT departments or IT Support, to select which system that meets the demand and requirements of day-to-day jobs. However, some IT tech supports are also responsible to keep the HP Workstation at its peak performance to keep the deadline met, aside from the users themself.
This article, will try to help most HP Workstation existing customers and even potential customers, to have clearer reference on how to get the most out of your next HP Workstation investment.
Following up the information about new HP ZBook 15 as Realtime 4K Video Editing Beast, I've managed to secure my time in writing a hands on review, including the benchmark on "the beast". This would be the first hands on review of the unit in Indonesia.
Happy New Year 2014, Everyone! This very first day of 2014, after browsing the net for a while, I've found a very interesting video article about the new HP ZBook 15. Frankly speaking, the video brought my jaw on the table (of course on the table not the floor, because while I was watching it I put my Envy 14 Spectre on the table). I've never seen such performance in my life, coming out of a mobile workstation.
I hope any of you haven't experienced an awful situation with your notebook, when you found all of a sudden, you're hard drive stopped working, and all of your important data might got lost, for good. HDD potential failures can happen even more when you're transporting your computer when it's up and running. For instance, you're having a presentation and it's your turn to show it, you'll bring your computer forward. Rough handlings, bumps, and even drops will bring the risk of HDD failure, up significantly.
So, this article will focus on the SSD performance, in order to put the HP Workstation performance to the next level, after giving you the information of RAID-0 config in previous article.
At this stage, Intel is so kind to lend me the their latest Solid State Drive (SSD), the 520 Series. Further information about the 520 Series can be found, here. Generally, it can deliver up random writes up to 80,000 IOPS and sequential write of 520 MB/s. The best feature of this latest SSD from Intel, is their End-to-End Data Protection, that will secure your data inside the drive and let you sleep smiling from ear to ear.
Happy Holidays Everyone! Errrr ..... but I don't think I could keep my fingers for one. It tickles me to do things as I'm so consumed with my work on the weekdays. So, I decided to bench some numbers on my good old HP Z800 Personal Workstation, on a 30" LP3065 Display.
Compares to a decade ago, we significantly notice that the performance of the CPU and Graphics Card have been increasingly multiplied in catching up with the load of work in the industry for such power hungry application in 3D, structure analysis, rendering, real-time visualization and so on. But what about the performance of the hard drive itself?
It's quite short after I'd been playing with the HP ENVY 14 SPECTRE, then I couldn't hold myself to get my hands on the HP SPECTRE XT. Smaller, but the one I have my hands on it, has more power compares to the ENVY 14 I have. I will talk about the technical side right after I'm sharing my personal impression.
I recognize that this isn't the first review about HP ENVY 14 SPECTRE. However, I intend to have my own habit to know things that I use, deeper, to know better about it for my daily use. Pretty much like a boy when he gets a new toy. He's gonna play with it all day. I'm sure so is everybody.
I've been using HP Mobile Workstation for years, since my very own nw8240, to the current 8760w. Yes, they are not slim, but they bring me the performance I need for my daily work, and its stability are so amazing.
Now, I'm having my hands on the HP ENVY 14 SPECTRE, which has earned few fascinating awards at some shows around the globe.
Impressive Design! That's the only word came cross my mind the first time seeing the HP Z1 when it was launched in Jakarta. Then dozens of questions followed, along with the introduction and some preliminary tests I made to the test bed unit.
But first, let's get into people's impressions when they saw Z1, the first time.
