HP has expanded its consumer notebook PC range with new and improved products that provide interesting tweaks to proven designs, and an optimal combination of sleek style and practical design.
The products reflect the “MUSE” (materials, usability, sensory appeal and experiences) consumer notebook design philosophy with the HP Mini 210 and HP Pavilion dm4. These updated models fuse a rich mix of materials that create textured finishes and easy-to-use features for improved usability. This is combined with a blend of artisan elements for sensory appeal and intuitive features for simple user experiences.
Some features of the new products include:
— The redesigned HP Mini 210 sports vibrant colours HP Beats Audio, developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre, which allows listeners to hear music the way the artist intended it – just as it sounds in the studio.
— Improved HP CoolSense technology is now included in HP Pavilion dm4 and HP ENVY 14 and ENVY 17 notebook PCs.
— HP SimplePass with One-Time Password (OTP) which is now available on the Pavilion dm4, dv6 metal and dv7 metal notebook PCs.
— New versions of the HP Pavilion dv6 and dv7 notebooks PCs which have been launched in a sleek steel grey colour.
With the addition of Beats Audio, the redesigned HP Mini 210 is the ultimate companion PC, offering high-quality entertainment plus productivity while on-the-go. Weighing under 1.39 kg and measuring less than 2.5cm thin, the HP Mini 210 delivers up to 9.5 hours of computing.
The stylish notebook also features HP QuickWeb 3.0, allowing users to be more productive by connecting to the web within seconds of starting the mini. QuickWeb 3.0 includes a customisable widget dashboard and syncs to Windows bookmarks. Users can chat with friends on Skype, update Facebook posts or tweets, and view their social calendars all in one place.
The high-performance HP Pavilion dm4 features improved HP CoolSense technology that includes a simplified user interface of on, off and auto. CoolSense uses advanced hardware and intelligent software for a notebook that feels noticeably cooler. Weighing under 2.1 kg, the dm4 boasts a 35.6cm diagonal HD LED BrightView screen and comes in Dark Umber metal finish. Also featuring improved HP CoolSense technology is the award-winning HP ENVY 14 notebook PC.
Protecting personal information and simplifying password management, HP SimplePass with One-Time Password (OTP) is now available on the Pavilion dm4, dv6 metal and dv7 metal notebook PCs. HP SimplePass with OTP practically eliminates phishing fraud by providing unique “one-time” passwords that are linked to each individual user’s fingerprint. These one-time passwords, generated every 60 seconds, grant secure access to websites that store financial information such as eBay or PayPal.
