HP Launches Slick New Desktop PCs with Beats Audio
HP is rolling out a slew of new attractive desktop PCs, and when it comes to this new line-up there is something for everyone in terms of budget and power requirements. All of the new PCs are sporting a slick gloss black finish, lots of configuration options, and HP LinkUp technology that enables users to access files from a notebook PC on a Pavilion desktop wirelessly via a home network.
The HP Pavilion P7 series is aimed at those looking for good value on a budget. This series features built-in support for multi-channel surround sound, and a choice of AMD or Intel processors, starting at just $299.
The HP Pavilion HPE h8 series is quite a step up, as it packs in dedicated graphics cards from Nvidia or ATI. The system can be configured with a choice of Core i7 or AMD Phenom processors, up-to 24GB of ram and even three hard drives. It also features Beats Audio and it can support a dual display set-up. Pricing begins at $599.
The HP Slimline s5 series is designed for places where space is tight, and to that effect it is less then half the size of your typical PC tower. Pricing begins at $329 and the s5 will be available starting June 15th, while the P7 and h8 will be available starting May18th.
HP has also introduced the x2301 Micro Thin LED monitor, which might be its sexiest LCD monitor ever. This svelte 23″ display sports a 1080P resolution with glare-reducing BrightView technology. It sits on an aquamarine base that is covered with brushed anodized aluminum accents. The monitor will retail for a very reasonable $279 when it becomes available on June 10th.
