New Consumer PCs to Connect Consumers to their Personal Passions
New lineup of consumer notebooks, desktops and monitors completes the HP computing ecosystem
HP today revealed a redesigned consumer PC portfolio at 'A New HP World‘ with sleek looks and the latest technologies to enhance the way consumers connect to the people, entertainment and information that matter to them to pursue and achieve their personal passions.
The redesigned HP Pavilion notebook PC line and new HP TouchSmart 610 Consumer PC are built on inspirations from culture, art, fashion and HP‘s MUSE (Materials, Usability, Sensory appeal and Experience) design philosophy.
MUSE includes a mix of materials such as metals, alloys and plastics; easy-to-use features for improved usability; a blend of artisanal elements for sensory appeal; and intuitive features for streamlined experiences.
The new HP Pavilion dv series notebook PCs include impressive features such as HP CoolSense Technology, HP TrueVision HD webcam and HP SimplePass. Select models of the HP Pavilion dv series also feature Beats Audio for a powerful audio experience.
With a sleek, clean appearance, the new HP TouchSmart610 Consumer PC reclines from upright to almost flat, providing increased comfort for longer-term use and the freedom to position the TouchSmart 610 Consumer PC on a kitchen counter, or anywhere the family gathers.
The new consumer PC portfolio enables users to:
- Experience music the way artists intended it to be heard with Beats Audio, optimized by onboard quad speakers on HP Pavilion dv6 with metal chassis and additional HP Triple Bass Reflex Subwoofer on dv7.
- Enjoy greater comfort with HP CoolSense Technology, designed and engineered for better cooling on HP dv series notebooks.
- Amplify visual euphoria with HP TrueVision HD webcam and the optional graphic enhancement of up to 1GB GDDR5 of dedicated video memory on the HP Pavilion dv4.
- Help protect their personal information and simplify password management, with HP SimplePass on the Pavilion dv6 and dv7.
- Benefit from the increased range of motion on the HP TouchSmart610 Consumer PC‘s reclining display of up to 60 degrees and forward-tilt of up to five degrees.
Transforming the digital entertainment journey
HP Pavilion dv6 and dv7
At the forefront of the redesigned lineup, the Pavilion dv6 and dv7 offer performance, entertainment and security features that work together to fit seamlessly into the lives of users.
Available in a dark umber metal finish, they use design elements from the award-winning ENVY line such as sleek metal finishes and HP‘s exclusive Beats Audio.
Beats Audio, which was created by Beats by Dr. Dre co-founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, restores the emotion that is missing from digital music.
Working in collaboration with HP, Iovine and Dr. Dre tuned and applied the signature Beats sound profile across HP‘s premium notebook and desktop lines to provide the optimal sound experience – the way the artist intended it – when playing music or audio through headphones or external speakers. The Pavilion dv6 and dv7 also include newly optimized on-board quad speakers, and the dv7 features a HP Triple Bass Reflex Subwoofer for additional depth and power.
Available with up to second-generation Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors and optional AMD Radeon graphics, the Pavilion dv6 and dv7 provide enhanced performance. HP CoolSense Technology combines advanced hardware and intelligent cooling software for a notebook that feels noticeably cooler. The technology automatically adjusts cooling levels according to a customer‘s personal preferences.
To help protect personal information and simplify password management, the Pavilion dv6 and dv7 also include HP SimplePass, providing secure access to online accounts and passwords with the swipe of a finger. Designed with security and protection in mind, all HP Pavilion dv series notebook PCs feature HP ProtectSmart, which helps to lock the hard drive to secure photos, music and memories, and protects against accidental drops.
HP Pavilion dv4
Designed to maximize any user‘s multimedia experience, it expresses full PC functionality and performance with up to second-generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors and powerful AMD Radeon 6750M graphics.
