SINGAPORE - HP today introduced the updated HP Pavilion dm1, a consumer notebook PC featuring Beats Audio and HP Premier Experience – an exclusive set of innovations designed to improve on the Microsoft Windows experience.
The affordable HP Pavilion dm1 is the ultimate ultraportable, blending performance and mobility in a stylish package, and offering a battery life of up to 11.5 hours.
The dm1 features an 11.6-inch diagonal high-definition LED display, and the built-in HP TrueVision HD webcam captures high-quality images even in low-light conditions.
The compact machine has a range of storage options and also packs power with the latest AMD E-Series Accelerated Processing Units or Intel 2nd Generation Core processors. AMD models also include AMD Radeon HD discrete-class graphics to enable crisper and more vivid video playback. Thin and light, the dm1 measures less than 1-inch thick in front and weighs 1.46-kilos.
With the addition of HP Beats Audio, a unique, high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre, the Pavilion dm1 offers high-quality entertainment for mobile users.
HP also introduces HP Premier Experience, which delivers a streamlined Windows experience that makes HP Pavilion notebooks cleaner, faster and more intuitive.
Part of the HP Premier Experience, HP Launch Box allows applications to be better organized by grouping them for quick access on the Windows 7 taskbar. A simple mouse-over and click launches an application directly from the taskbar, freeing up screen real estate on the PC’s desktop. Including the dm1, HP Launch Box is available on 70 percent of HP’s consumer notebook models.
Additionally, a simplified, organized Windows Start Menu allows users to find applications faster.
With HP Premier Experience, consumer notebooks have quicker boot-up, shutdown, sleep and resume times, allowing users to access their content quickly. The dm1 shows an approximate 29 and 25 percent improvement on shutdown and resume times respectively, compared to the previous dm1. Boot times and sleep times also are improved.
