HP's Booth

 HP has a considerable presence at Comex and the products on show include all its PCs, PDAs and printers. Not to mention Compaq.

 An attractive offer open only to students is this HP Pavilion tx1222AU. Powered by a dual core AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor, this tablet PC has 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and a GeForce Go 6150 chipset, A fingerprint reader and a 1.3 mega-pixel web camera makes this 12.1-inch notebook extremely versatile and multi-role. Windows Vista Home Premium is installed and we bet that students are queuing up to get this for just $1499.

 Suited for professionals, the HP Compaq 6910b (on the left) costs $2799 and comes with up to date features like a Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, TPM 1.2 security chip and a fingerprint sensor. Meanwhile, the other model here is the portable 12.1-inch HP Compaq 2710p, a lightweight tablet notebook with a Core 2 Duo processor and integrated X3100 graphics. However, its price tag of $3999 does seem rather excessive.

 HP has teamed up with Garskins to offer these skinning options for its notebooks. It's a chance for users to customize their own unique appearance for their notebooks and will probably be popular with the younger crowd.

 At only $98, this all-in-one deskjet (F4185) fulfills the basic functions of printing, scanning and copying. It's a cheap but competent printer for the home and a HP gift bag awaits all buyers.

 For higher printed photo quality, there's the HP Photosmart C5180 at $298 with a free trolley and electronic Sudoku game. There's built-in networking and memory card slots for this all-in-one.

 A further upgrade to the C5180 is the C6180, which includes wireless networking and an automatic document feeder. It prints black and white pages at 32rpm while color is only slightly slower at 31rpm.
