It doesn’t reinvent the concept, but it sounds like a pretty good upgrade. The new VR backpack, which is now just called the HP VR Backpack G2, uses an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and an Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU to deliver what HP describers as 30 percent better performance and 25 percent faster…

HP is finally fixing its terrible trackpads

Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to use and review a lot of HP laptops.

The problem has always been inferior drivers and firmware, which…
