At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the second generation of the Sprout Pro by HP caught the attention of Melissa Riofrio, executive editor of PC World. She has followed the Sprout since its introduction in 2014. On Jan. 3, Riofrio posted a fresh, positive review.
Riofrio wrote, “HP’s Sprout Pro is here to remind us that Microsoft’s Surface Studio is not the original creativity-oriented PC, let alone the most creative. Two years ago, the original Spout debuted with integrated camera that could turn 3D objects into 2D or 3D digital images…. Now, the Sprout Pro brings an upgraded set of talents to a market that may finally ready for it.”
