Here is what to expect from HP Notebooks at GITEX this year.
HP decided to throw a Pre-Gitex party to showcase some of their upcoming computers which is good idea, at least from a publicity point of view as all of us get terribly busy during Gitex and most of the vendors don’t end up getting the coverage they would like to.
The event was held at Media One hotel in Media City and HP had quite a few of their upcoming notebooks and notebooks on display. Let start off with the Mini 210 that featured a refreshed finger-print-free finish and upgraded dual core Atom CPUs. Available in charcoal, crimson red, luminous rose and ocean drive, these minis felt a bit heavier than previous models. Capable of 9.5 hours of battery life, these notebooks are ideal for the casual user who wants to surf the web, check email, listen to music, and do some social networking.
Next up was the Envy 14 Beats Edition- You get Beats audio and Intel i-core performance in a funky black design wit red accents. The ENVY 14 Beats Edition will sounds really good with a pair of beat’s headphones- almost as if you’re in the studio or the front row of a concert. The notebook comes loaded with DJ tools and optional Beats headphones.
Moving along, we saw the dv3 and dv6 notebooks- the HP Pavilion dv3 features a 13.3-inch diagonal BrightView LED backlit display, a built-in optical drive and a lightweight magnesium casing weighing 4.35 pounds. The Pavilion dv6 is a sleek-looking laptop with powerful specs and a beautiful brushed-aluminum finish etched with a stream design.
Last and certainly not the least was the star of the show- the new Envy 3D. This 17″ notebook had an incredible full HD display with 120Hz for 3D output. HP showcased an NBA game which looked pretty awesome. As expected, it will be loaded with high-end specs such as the Core i7 and the latest-greatest AMD based GPU.
