The HP ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One is billed as a "photo/document printer." Technically, it's also a copier/scanner, but printing photos is its strong suit.

The unit produces borderless, lab-quality photos and allows you to print wirelessly from your smart phone, tablet, or Internet-connected PC. You can also print images directly from an SD card using controls on the 2.65-inch color touch screen.

As a copier/scanner, the ENVY 5530 also affords you the convenience of scanning directly to your mobile device. The unit is capable of double-sided printing at up 8.8 ppm black and up to 5.2 ppm color. Max copy speeds are 21 cpm black, 17 cpm color.

The 100-sheet input tray is adequate for home use, and the flatbed scanner delivers 1200 x 2400 dpi resolution. Onboard connectivity includes USB 2.0 and WiFi 802.11b/g/n.

Special HP pricing includes instant savings of $30 (offer ends 12/31/13) and brings the price of the ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One to $99.99. For more information, visit HP.com.

High-end HP notebook goes topless... and fanless

Intel has decided that a Windows 8 tablet that turns into a notebook should be called a "2-in-1," rather than a hybrid or a convertible. A rose by any other name, but the fact remains that convertibles, hybrids, or 2-in-1 PCs have come a long way.

Today's models are far more impressive than their predecessors, thanks in part to the Intel's 4th generation Haswell micro-architecture, which yields amazing battery life and cooler running. The new HP Spectre x2 is a prime example.

This top-of-the-line unit is the first fanless 2-in-1 detachable Ultrabook to pack Intel Core i-series horsepower. The stylish slate also has Beats Audio and lightning-fast SSD storage.

Yes, just like in the TV commercials, this beauty "takes off its top," thanks to a durable, magnetic hinge. It also features silent operation and a beautiful a 13.3-inch, full HD display.

Other niceties include solid, all-aluminum construction, an eye-catching, two-toned color scheme ("Truffle" and "Champagne"), a backlit keyboard, 802.11ac WiFi, and two batteries, one in the tablet and another in the included keyboard dock.

The HP Spectre x2 2-in-1 PC starts at $1,099.99. For more information, visit HP.com.
