HP Enters Ultrabook Market With Slim $900 Laptop


Hewlett-Packard plans to introduce its first lightweight ultrabook laptop to compete with Apple?s MacBook Air. The company also introduced redesigned HP ENVY notebooks PCs and two new HP Pavilion dm4 notebooks.

HP's First Business Ultrabook

The HP Folio13 is HP's first business Ultrabook. It features a thin and light design, strong security options and a solid-state hard drive. HP claims that the ultrabook delivers up to 9 hours of battery life, the highest performance available among Ultrabook devices currently on the market.

Plus, a wide array of ports, including Ethernet, eliminates the need to carry dongles.

Measuring less than 18 millimeters thin and using an ultraslim 13.3-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) BrightView display, the HP Folio13 weighs just 3.3 pounds. It combines the industrial design found on consumer products with the security and usability business users demand.



Powered by the latest Intel Core processors, the HP Folio13 also includes Intel Rapid Start Technology, which helps save time by getting users systems up and running fast.

The HP Folio13 includes a backlit keyboard for mobile users who work in low-light conditions. A full array of ports, including RJ-45 and USB 3.0, allows users greater flexibility to connect to the information they need. The HP Folio13 also includes a solid-state drive (SSD) with 128 gigabytes (GB) of storage.

One model will include a TPM Embedded Security Chip that protects data in email as well as information on the hard drive for security-conscious users.

The HP Folio13 features HP CoolSense technology, which uses hardware and intelligent software for a noticeably cooler notebook. The notebook also includes an HP ImagePad for accurate multitouch gesture support.

Additional features include an HP TrueVision HD Webcam and Dolby Advanced Audio.

The HP Folio13 also can be configured with a range of Microsoft Windows 7 operating systems, including Windows 7 Professional. A three-year limited warranty is available through an optional HP Care Pack.

The HP Folio13 is expected to be available on Dec. 7 with a starting price of $899.99.

New HP ENVY and Pavillion dm4 notebooks

HP also introduced new HP ENVY and HP Pavilion dm4 notebook PCs.

Featuring a new HP Radiance Backlit keyboard, the HP ENVY notebooks provide illumination using individual LEDs dedicated to each keycap. The keyboard also works with a proximity sensor to illuminate when it detects a user approaching the notebook and deactivate after the user leaves.

The notebooks also feature six speakers and a subwoofer enhanced with Beats Audio, a high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre.

The HP ENVY 15 and ENVY 17 feature optional Intel Quad Core and AMD Mobility Radeon high-definition (HD) graphic processors. With optional 3x3 wireless technology, the HP ENVY notebooks offer up to three times the speed and twice the range of typical network connections.



The ENVY 15 and ENVY 17 are available with optional Radiance Full HD Infinity displays - either 15.6-inch or 17.3-inch diagonal, respectively. HP claims that the ENVY 17 display boasts 50 percent greater brightness than standard.

With support for HDMI and full-size DisplayPorts, users can connect up to three external displays. The ENVY 17 also offers an advanced option with support for a 128-gigabyte mSATA SSD and up to two 1-terabyte hard drives. The ENVY 15 boasts up to 9 hours of battery life, while the ENVY 17 can achieve up to 9.5 hours in ideal conditions.

Other innovations featured in both ENVY notebooks include HP CoolSense technology, which automatically adjusts performance and internal fan settings for a cooler PC, and HP ImagePad, for precise multifinger touch navigation.

Fast boot and resume times, a performance-tuned software image that includes two full years of preinstalled Norton Internet Security, and a dedicated concierge phone line for technical support deliver a premium experience to ENVY users.

HP is also offering the ENVY 17 3D model, which provides 1080p full HD viewing along with improved viewing angles and color gamut for all 2-D and 3-D content. HP's 3D Active Shutter Glasses are required for enjoying 3D content.

Using the same technology integrated into the new HP ENVY notebooks, HP Wireless Audio transforms a notebook or desktop PC into a full home audio system. Users can stream uncompressed audio to up to four external devices or directly to any KleerNet device. Tri-band connectivity reduces interference, lag time and latency. The thumb-sized dongle attaches to any PC and the tiny receiver attaches to legacy speakers through its two analog or two digital ports.

The new HP ENVY notebook PCs are planned to be available in the United States on Dec. 7.

The HP ENVY 15 has a starting price of $1,099.99.
The HP ENVY 17 has a starting price of $1,249.99.
The HP ENVY 17 3D has a starting price of $1,599.99.

HP Wireless Audio is expected to be available mid-December for $99.99.

HP also today updated its HP Pavilion dm4 notebooks.

The new HP Pavilion dm4 boasts a profile that is 1-inch thin in the front and features a 14-inch HD LED display. Weighing less than 4.5 pounds and offering up to seven hours of battery life, the HP Pavilion dm4 features the latest Intel Core processors with optional AMD Radeon HD discrete graphics.

Available in a brushed aluminum dark umber or steel gray metal finish with optional backlit keyboard, the HP Pavilion dm4 includes optional Intel Smart Response Technology, which provides faster boot times and application loads.

With the added subwoofer and Beats Audio, the Pavilion dm4 offers a full audio experience. The notebook also includes innovations such as HP TrueVision HD Webcam, HP CoolSense and HP SimplePass with fingerprint reader for storing passwords in one place.

The HP Pavilion dm4 has a starting price of $629.99.

The HP Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition, the second upgraded Pavilion notebook anounced today, reflects the signature Beats black-and-red design. The black metal exterior features a red Beats logo and a black keyboard that is backlit in red.



The Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition also includes exclusive Beats wallpaper and a Beats microfiber sleeve. Solo HD Headphones ? with an HP exclusive red design ? are available via an optional bundle.

The new HP Pavilion dm4 and Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition are expected to be available in the United States on Dec. 18. Prices start from $899.99.
