HP releases new notebooks, mini PC

Hewlett-Packard has released a new notebook range in the HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario series, as well as a customisable compact desktop PC.

HP’s new flagship notebook, the dv2040, will retail at $2,699 — considerably cheaper than Toshiba's and Sony’s top models.

The dv2040 features a 14.1-inch widescreen, built-in webcam and remote control, as well as high-end notebook graphics.

Kirsten Kane, product marketing manager at HP, says the new range focuses on aesthetics as well as performance.

“HP has used new technology to get the gloss and durability right, so the laptop will look great on a shop shelf to attract consumers, as well as providing excellent performance.”

The new notebook range does not offer Blu-ray or HD-DVD, as HP is still waiting for standards to be confirmed.

As well as the notebooks, HP is releasing a small form factor PC, the Pavilion s7500 series.

David Procter, consumer business manager with HP, says the new PC is about one-third the size of a normal computer and has a customisable skin which enables consumers to give it a personal look.

“It will be perfect as a second computer, either in the kids’ room or as a Media Centre PC in the living room. We hope to play in the same space as Apple’s Mac Mini with the design and size.”
