HP Unveils New Laptops and Netbooks at CES

HP today introduced a new range of powerful desktop and notebook PCs and displays designed to meet the demands of business users, including the company's first touch-enabled Mini.

Among the new products being announced are:

- The HP Compaq 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop PC, the first Microsoft Windows based desktop PC to be free of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) from the wall to the mouse.

- The HP EliteBook 8440 p/w and 8540 p/w series notebooks incorporate the latest mobile technologies, are engineered to meet the tough MIL-STD 810G military-standard tests for vibration, dust, humidity, altitude, and high and low temperatures, and also are BFR/PVC-free.

- The HP Notebook Projection Companion, a compact projector using a mercury-free LED light source that measures only 4 inches by 3 inches and weighs less than 1 pound.

- The entry-level HP Z200 Workstation.

- The HP TouchSmart tm2, a convertible, touch-enabled notebook PC encased in a sophisticated aluminum design. - The HP Mini 5102, HP's first touch-enabled netbook, designed for students and mobile professionals alike.

- Available in the HP Mini?s broadest range of color and design options to date, the HP Mini 210 and 2102 are affordable companion PCs that provide all-day computing, optional high-definition (HD) video playback, and optional global positioning system (GPS) and mobile broadband connectivity.

Business-class PCs and monitors

The size of a ream of paper, the HP Compaq 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop PC is 30 percent more energy efficient compared to previous models, engineered with reduced substances of concern - including the mouse, keyboard and power cord - and packaged in 100 percent paper-based recycled molded pulp cushions to help protect it in transit.

The HP Compaq 8000f Elite is ENERGY STAR qualified regardless of the configuration, registered EPEAT Gold and includes the HP Power Assistant, which helps business users maximize the system's energy efficiency while reducing energy-related operating costs.

HP Compaq 8100 Elite Desktop PC Series features 89 percent energy-efficient power supplies, supports energy-saving technologies such as solid state drives (SSDs) and offers HP power-management solutions that help support lower energy usage and costs. The series is EPEAT Gold registered and ENERGY STAR qualified, and the power supplies are rated 80 PLUS Gold. Utilizing Microsoft operating systems, such as Windows 7 and future Intel Core or Core vPro processors, the HP Compaq 8100 Elite Series offers faster, multicore technology enabling intelligently maximized performance.

HP also introduced two displays, the HP Compaq LE19f and the HP Compaq LA22f Widescreen LCD Monitors. Available in 19- and 22-inch diagonal sizes, these displays are BFR/PVC-free and contain no mercury. The displays are HP?s first to feature WLED low-power-consumption backlit panels. The HP Compaq LA22f is registered EPEAT Gold; the HP Compaq LE19f is registered EPEAT Silver; and both are ENERGY STAR 5.0 qualified and TCO 5.0 certified.

Notebooks designed for savvy mobile professionals

Drawing inspiration from aircraft design, HP has updated the look of its HP EliteBook lineup.

- The HP EliteBook 8440w and HP EliteBook 8540w mobile workstations feature an aluminum finish with a full magnesium-alloy chassis. The HP EliteBook 8440w represents the company's first 14-inch diagonal mobile workstation.

- The HP EliteBook 8440p and HP EliteBook 8540p retain the classic platinum anodized-aluminum finish and the full magnesium-alloy chassis. Depending on the model, HP EliteBooks offer a wide variety of configurable options such as choice of Intel Unified Mobile Access (UMA) or NVIDIA discrete graphics; choice of Intel Core i7 processors or future Intel Core or Core vPro processors; and either high-definition (HD) or HD Plus resolution displays. All new HP EliteBooks also come preloaded with HP SkyRoom, an HD videoconferencing software.

The company also announced two new additions to the HP ProBook b-series. The HP ProBook 6440b and HP ProBook 6540b are aimed at corporate customers. They feature Intel Core processors and are available with 14-inch or 15.6-inch diagonal HD LED-backlit widescreen displays.

The new HP EliteBook and HP ProBook notebook series include HP QuickWeb, which allows users to access the web in seconds when the notebook is shut down; HP QuickLook, which allows users to look up and edit email, calendar and contacts without having to boot the notebook;HP Power Assistant; and spill-resistant keyboards with a drain.

Additionally, the HP Long Life Battery, which provides up to a three-year life span will be a configurable option on the new HP EliteBook and HP ProBook b-series notebooks.

The HP Notebook Projection Companion is a notebook accessory for mobile users who want to make a big impression. Just 4 inches by 3 inches and weighing less than 1 pound, it can project an image up to 60 inches from a distance of 8.5 feet. Because the projector features an LED light source with up to 10,000 hours of usage life (up to five years of typical use) there are seldom any bulbs to buy or parts to replace, which helps reduce its total cost of ownership.

Performance made affordable in a new HP Z workstation

Extending the line of HP Z Workstations to reach new affordable levels of performance, the HP Z200 Workstation is ideal for engineers and designers using Autodesk AutoCAD, photographers using Adobe Photoshop and power office users.

The HP Z200 taps the power of Intel?s newest technologies, offering dual-core processor options based on future Intel processors as well as quad-core processor options based on the enterprise-class Intel Xeon 3400 family. As with all HP Z Workstations, the HP Z200 provides a flexible workstation platform with a range of options in Windows and Linux operating systems and a full range of independent software vendor (ISV) certifications.

HP also unveiled the HP Performance Advisor software tool, which acts as a personal system engineer to update a user's workstation settings and drivers. The tool is preinstalled on the HP Z200 and ships on all HP workstations at no additional cost. Additionally, all new HP Z Workstations come preloaded with HP SkyRoom.

HP also introduced the HP ZR22w and HP ZR24w Performance Displays available in 21.5-inch diagonal and 24-inch diagonal sizes. They offer IPS Panel technology, with 96 percent coverage of the sRGB gamut and 16.7 million colors at affordable prices. The HP ZR22w is ENERGY STAR 5.0 qualified and both displays feature an eight-way comfort-adjust stand.

Touch-Enabled Notebook and Minis in Stylish Designs

HP also expanded its portfolio of mobile products with a new TouchSmart notebook and colorful netbooks, including the company's first touch-enabled Mini.

HP TouchSmart tm2
The thin HP TouchSmart tm2 updates the tx2 ? the first convertible notebook PC with multitouch technology.

With the convertible tm2, users can choose the product configuration and input method that is most comfortable and natural, whether on a couch, in an airplane or while surfing the web. As a traditional notebook, the tm2 offers a keyboard and touch-enabled display for input. Converted to a slate, the tm2 morphs into a sketchpad with digital pen, allowing artists to sketch on the go and students to take notes in class.

A light multitouch display technology responds to the softest touch of a finger. The display also supports multitouch gestures such as zoom, scroll and rotate by allowing more than one finger to be accepted as input simultaneously. With the digital pen, handwriting appears on the display as digital ink, similar to writing on paper.

Featuring a sophisticated aluminum design, the tm2 is powered by the latest low-voltage Intel Core 2 Duo processors and optional high multimedia performance ATI Mobility Radeon discrete graphics upgrades. The tm2 also provides up to nine hours of battery life via the standard six-cell battery and includes a fingerprint reader as well as an advanced thermal design that helps keep the PC cool.

New touch applications for the tm2 include

- BumpTop, a touch-enhanced 3-D interface for photos and documents that allows users to spatially organize and "toss" or share files and photos to social media sites or email.
- DigiFish Dolphin, an interactive 3-D screensaver that recreates an ocean environment to be experienced via touch or a mouse.
- Corel Paint it! Touch, which allows users to draw and paint or turn photos into paintings using fingertips.

The tm2 also features many of the same exclusive built-for-touch applications found on the recently introduced tx2 and HP TouchSmart PC, including exclusive touch-enabled games and Corel Painter Sketch Pad application for creating digital art.

The tm2 now offers a touch-enabled Netflix application, which delivers full-screen movies and TV episodes that are instantly streamed from Netflix over the Internet and can be watched any time at no additional cost by Netflix members with an unlimited subscription. Other recently introduced applications within the TouchSmart software include Hulu Desktop or Internet TV, Twitter and HP Music Store.

HP Mini 5102

Starting at only 2.6 pounds, the HP Mini 5102 is a full-performance netbook designed for mobile professionals and students. Available in either a standard or touch-enabled version, the HP Mini 5102 features a lightweight anodized-aluminum display enclosure with a choice of black, red or blue brushed finishes. It also features an optional handle, which makes it easy to carry.

The touchscreen option allows users to get work done more intuitively and quickly based on their choice of input methods. Multitouch gestures, finger taps and swipes across the screen allow users to navigate through applications and menus as well as provide access to information and websites.

The 95 percent of full-size QWERTY keyboard, plus a touchpad, compares favorably to smaller keyboards of competing companion PCs.

Logging on to Windows and other websites is fast and easy with HP Face Recognition for Protect tools. Users simply face the 2-megapixel webcam of the HP Mini 5102 to log in.

The HP Mini 5102 also features the latest Intel Atom N450 processor, multiple connectivity options including mobile broadban and a 10.1-inch diagonal LED display available in either WSVGA or HD resolutions. When equipped with the optional Broadcom HD video decoder technology, the HP Mini 5102 can play back high-resolution 720- and 1,080-pixel HD video content.

Users can choose either a four-cell battery for lighter weight or six-cell battery for longer battery life. When configured with the optional six-cell battery, the HP Mini 5102 delivers up to 10 hours of battery runtime.

HP also is offering the HP Mini 5102 in a HP Student Edition, designed to help students learn. The Student Edition brings leading software to students, including Adobe Digital School Collection, which provides document management and portfolio creation tools for enhancing learning experiences in language arts, history, music and the sciences. The HP Student Edition also can be configured with an optional handle and is available in black, red or blue.

Features such as a thermal compartment for lunches and snacks, a roomy book compartment, quick-access compartments for phones and personal media, and extra padding in the shoulder straps and back ? keep students prepared and comfortable.
