Buying a computer can be a challenging process to complete. The reason that the process of buying a computer can be so challenging is because there are so many steps involved. First of all, you have to decide whether you want a desktop or a laptop. The next decision you have to make is whether you want an Apple OS or a Windows operating system.

Once you have made up your mind about these first two steps in the process, you then have to decide what brand of computer you want to buy. If you decide that you want an Apple OS, this step is obviously very easy to complete. However, if you decide that you want a computer with a Windows operating system, you have a much tougher choice on your hands because there are so many companies that sell computers with a Windows OS.

Although there are a lot of choices out there, one of the best you can make is buying an HP computer. Over time, HP has grown to be a very popular company, and there is one big reason for this: because they make computers that work very well. Whether you are in the market for a desktop or a laptop, HP has a computer that will fit your exact needs. In addition to making computers that run very well, if you ever run into any issues or have questions that you need answered, you can always count on HP’s support to be just a phone call away and ready to help you.

HP is back to No 1 in Indian PC Market

Filed under: HP Computers,HP Information,HP News - 20 Mar 2013  | Spread the word !

[Facebook] [Twitter]

After being just a few steps behind Chinese PC manufacturer Lenovo for the past year and a half, Hewlett-Packard has managed to regain its number one position in the Indian PC market in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Market intelligence and research company IDC has recently released data according to which HP repositioned itself as the leading PC brand in India in the October-December period of 2012, with a market share of 16.5%. Lenovo slipped to number two during that same time frame, with a market share of 13.2%. The third place went to Acer, with a market share of 12.1%.

In the second quarter of 2012, Lenovo enjoyed 16.9% in the Indian personal computer market, this being the percentage of total shipments. HP has regained the overall top position in the fourth quarter of 2012 with a market share growth of 3.5% on a year-on-year basis.

HP’s position as No. 1 yet again is a testament to the trust that our customers place in HP’s innovation, rich product portfolio and an unmatched support infrastructure. We take this opportunity to reconfirm our commitment to continue elevating their experiences by offering the very best in notebooks and desktops, backed by the HP’s support promise. We are also confident that 2013 will be a successful year for us and we will live up to our customers’ expectations to come up with most innovative products”, said Vinay Awasthi, Senior Director – Product Category at HP in India.

Venu Reddy, Research Director at IDC – a leading provider of global IT research and advice – added: “HP has moved into #1 place in CY Q4 2012 (Oct-Dec 2012) driven by strong sales/marketing campaigns and good mind-share among consumers. This momentum was driven by the fact that portable computers continue to gain in dominance among the PC market segments despite weaker overall PC marketplace.

However, for the full year (2012), Lenovo still managed to position itself as the number one PC brand in India, with a market share of 15.9%. This happened mainly because of Lenovo’s execution of the Tamil Nadu government free laptop program for students. HP came in second with a 15.2% market share, followed by Acer, who enjoyed a 13.2% market share in 2012, according to the same IDC data.

In December 2012, HP launched its first ultra thin hybrid PC, HP ENVY X2, which offers numerous advantages of having two devices in one. The notebook doubles as a tablet and has a detachable screen that becomes a full tablet when separated from the keyboard via a seamless magnetic latch.

In January 2013, HP launched HP Connected Music, a ground-breaking and seamless service. With the help of entertainment giants Universal Music India and Hungama.com, HP gave Indian consumers immense choice and access to global and regional digital music and content.

Add the wide range of desktop and notebook HP computers, workstations, inkjet and laser printing systems, calculators, handheld computers, software and accessories offered by HP’s Printing and Personal Systems (PPS) Group, and you can see why the brand is back to Number 1.

Last year, HP shipped 62 million per week worldwide, which is the equivalent of 2 computers every second. The company’s history of innovation and technological leadership, as well as an established record of industry-leading profitability, has made HP one of the best and most successful PC manufacturers in the world, not just India.

HP Laptop Batteries

Filed under: HP Computers - 18 Dec 2012  | Spread the word !

[Facebook] [Twitter]

Nowadays, most people use their laptops as desktop replacements, putting them on the desk and leaving them plugged in most of the time. As laptop batteries do not need to charge constantly, these people are limiting the lifespan of their laptop batteries without even realizing it. HP laptop batteries these days are lithium-ion batteries. Even though there is no danger of “over-charging” these lithium-ion batteries, leaving a laptop plugged in for months at a time will have a negative effect on its battery.

If you were not aware of this fact and have not unplugged your laptop when it’s not in use, you are probably experiencing some troublesome problems with its battery. Most likely, you will have to replace the battery of your HP laptop, if not the whole laptop. Luckily, dinodirect.com is home to a wide array of HP batteries you can purchase without even having to leave your home.

Also, many people wrongly assume that low temperatures are harmful for batteries. On the contrary, the truth is that high temperatures are the worst enemy for lithium-ion batteries. For those who want to prevent the batteries from overheating and getting damaged, here are some useful tips provided by the people at HP, tips that can extend the battery life of your laptop.

1. Keep the laptop battery cool. We have already established that batteries degrade faster when they are hot. This means that you should keep the ventilators clear. You shouldn’t put your laptop on pillows or cushioned surfaces, either, because this will only cover their vents and trap heat. So no putting your laptop on your lap, either! Basically, you have to make sure the laptop’s ventilation can always work properly, so don’t place objects before the ventilation system’s opening.

2. Do not pack your laptop away in a backpack or other enclosed space when the battery is still warm. This will also trap the heat. A battery that is frequently hot to the touch will lose life a lost faster than a battery that isn’t constantly being stressed.

3. Don’t charge your laptop constantly. If you only take your laptop away from a power outlet from time to time, but leave it plugged in to charge 24/7, you are leaving it in a state of perpetual charge at the 100% point. This can significantly shorten the long-time health of the battery.

4. Try to avoid charging the battery while you are working with the laptop. Not only will the battery be heated by the charging process itself, but also by the CPU, the graphics card and the hard disk.

5. You should physically remove the battery if you are using the laptop at your desk for long stretches of time. When removing it, do not store it in a fully charged or depleted state. It would be best to store it in the middle – between 40 and 50% of full charge.

By keeping these useful tips in mind, you will be able to extend the life of your HP laptop battery. However, battery life is limited because its capacity drops with time, eventually requiring replacement. When this happens, do not forget that you can find some of the best HP laptop batteries on dinodirect.com. Why spend money on a new laptop, when you can spend significantly less on a new battery?

HP Wins School Laptop Contract

HP computers have always been considered some of the best in the world. Their beautiful design and durability make HP computers appreciated worldwide. The popularity that HP enjoys today is best shown by the recent contract the company signed. Hewlett-Packard is the company who won Idaho school laptop contract.

State officials announced on Tuesday that HP has been awarded a $180 million contract. The company will have to provide Idaho high school students and teachers with laptop computers as part of the Students Come First education program. HP signed a 8 year contract with Idaho high schools.

HP has agreed to support this project, offering great computers at the best cost. The company will provide HP ProBook laptops, software, security and support at the minimum cost of $249 per student. The computers HP will provide high schools are essential in improving studying conditions for a great number of students.

Computers will improve students access to educational opportunities, preparing them for the future and fulfilling a new online course mandate. Nowadays, all high schools should be equipped with technology advanced computers and HP seems to be willing to support this process.

The new contract that the company signed with Idaho high schools provides a number of 6,600 computers with 14-inch screens and batteries designed to last the entire school day. The computers are going to be handed out to high school instructors and administrators early next year. Then, they will be distributed among all the high schools in the state. 

The contract also states that HP has to complete all the work needed to create wireless networks in schools. The company has to monitor and maintain the entire system and all devices, as well as to train teachers and staff on how to effectively use them. All these services will be provided by HP for a lower cost than $300 per student, which actually is a great offer.


Source

According to state officials, even though there were many other companies who competed for this contract, the winner was HP. HP presented the lowest bid, so there is no wonder that the famous computer maker got the deal.

The project of equipping Idaho high schools with functional computers is not a new one. Initially, officials wanted the new computers to be in schools starting with this fall. Unfortunately, the process of choosing a winning vendor had to be delayed with several months.


Source

The deal that HP offered is a great one, as state officials claim, so everyone involved in the process is very pleased with the results. Under the terms of the contract, HP will be responsible with delivering the new laptops, but also with providing training to teachers and students, building wireless networks in schools and offering technical and software support. HP agreed with all these terms and the contract has already been signed.

Hewlett-Packard And General Motors Team Up

Filed under: HP Information - 25 Oct 2012  | Spread the word !

[Facebook] [Twitter]

Just a few days ago, on October 18, 2012, the official website of HP http://www.hp.com announced through a press release that the company teamed up with General Motors for an IT transformation project in the benefit of the vehicle-producing company.

The two companies begin their collaboration with a project that will last many years and that was implemented to help General Motors to improve its IT services. To make sure the clients of GM can have the best products and services, HP will make a transformation of some of the operations of GM. The present costs of the IT operations of GM will be reduced and an important progress will be made a few months from now. For General Motors, this is the best solution concerning budget allocated for the good functioning of the IT department of the company.


General Motors is one of the most important producers of vehicles worldwide having in its portfolio brands like Chevrolet and Opel

From the moment of the agreement between HP and GM was signed, 3,000 employees that previously worked from HP for General Motors projects switched the employers and were transferred to GM’s payment rolls. If before this movement, General Motors outsourced one of its most important services, time has come for the employees to work directly for the company, in order to make improvements and to bring innovation. Another novelty that comes with the news of the collaboration between the two worldwide-known companies is that 2,000 new employees will be hired to work in 4 innovation centers, but only the location of 2 was announced. These will be in Austin, Texas and in Warren, Michigan.


HP is the world’s largest technology company

The decision of moving so many employees on the payroll of General Motors was simply explained by the executive vice president of HP Software, George Kadifa, who declared in few words that HP was the best solution for GM. He also stated that General Motors was the first company to purchase the full suite of software necessary in the business. According to him, GM chose HP based on confidence, as the project that begins now has roots in the past of the companies and the employees of HP which now work for GM have the best insight. 

In what regards the IT department in General Motors, it was briefly mentioned that one of the plans of GM is to hire about 10,000 new people in a maximum period of five years from the transfer of the 3,000 people from Hewlett-Packard. 

Even with this collaboration rolling, HP will still provide some services for General Motors. At least this is what Mike Nefkens, the Global HP Enterprise Services Leader declared in a conference call made when the news was announced.

According to Mercury News, this project is actually the beginning of a crisis for Hewlett-Packard as the company will supposedly lose millions thanks to the fact  that GM will begin to handle it’s IT problems internally. The source mentions that this is a significant loss for HP, but spokespersons for both companies declined to comment on this matter. 

If this project will be a success or not, or if this will affect Hewlett-Packard in a negative manner remains to be seen. Right now, all the information made public comes from the two companies which presented it as the best thing that could happen for both sides.
