HP upgrades ‘ENVY, Pavilion and Mini’. All these machines reflect HP’s new “MUSE” (materials, usability, sensory appeal, experiences) philosophy – basically, they’ve been designed, engineered and ergonomically tested to look, feel, and perform great:
- New ENVY 14 and 17, features cutting edge design & materials, like a laser-etched aluminum chassis, high-end Intel processors, ATI Mobility Radeon discrete graphics, and Beats Audio. Unique to ENVY 14 is new HD Radiance display that HP claims is almost 59% brighter than standard laptop display, and battery with 6 hours. ENVY 17 can be configured up to 2 terabytes of onboard storage & features ATI Eyefinity technology to power multiple monitors at once. ENVY 14 starts at $999 on June 27th, ENVY 17 starts at $1399 on May 26th.
- Also launching Pavilion dm4, dv5, dv6, and dv7. dm4 is a new 14”, and only an inch thin & weighs less than 5lbs. dv5, dv6, and dv7 are all available in HP custom “Imprint” finishes with HP’s SimplePass biometric (fingerprint reader) security, offer a range of unique features, like dv6’s optional multi-touch screen, and dv7’s Altec-Lansing subwoofer and Beats Audio. dm4, dv5, dv6 and dv7 are expected in US on May 19 starting at $729, $649, $649 and $799, respectively.
- HP Mini 210 netbook comes with HP’s Imprint 3-D technology, by Studio Tord Boontje, is a new design process that creates a deep 3D texture on the case back, with look & feel kind of like a topographic map.
