HP recently unveiled its new offerings, including the world’s first display with integrated Beats Audio, the HP ENVY 27-inch IPS Monitor and HP’s most affordable touch notebook PC ever – the HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook.
The HP Envy 27-inch IPS monitor with Beats Audio is a display developed collaboratively with Beats by Dre, and it provides a unique and total immersive audiovisual experience.
Built-in speakers angled upward deliver great mid-range and high frequencies with equally rich bass; this studio quality sound on the Envy 27 monitor allows consumers to hear music the way the artists intended while looking at a stunning ID.
The 27-inch IPS panel offers edge-to-edge glass, slim design (13,95mm depth at top) and a narrow offset aluminum die-cast base which frees up desk space and provides an unobstructed viewing experience for video purists.
In-plane switching (IPS) technology allows for great viewing angles (178 degree horizontal and vertical) with contrast and brightness that maintain their integrity better than with conventional TN (twisted nematic) panels.
The HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook and the new HP Pavilion Sleekbook provide affordable performance in a thin and light package.
Powered by an AMD A-Series APU,  the newest HP Sleekbooks feature a 15,6-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) display; up to 1Tb of storage for apps, movies, music, photos, documents and more; Dolby Advanced Audio; a removable battery; and a numeric keyboard for increased productivity.
A full array of ports – including HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 – provide fast connections to mobile devices and accessories.
The HP Sleekbooks also feature exclusive HP innovations, including HP CoolSense, which adjusts cooling levels according to a customer’s personal preferences and results in a noticeably cooler PC, and HP ProtectSmart, which helps prevent file loss in case of a bump.
The Sleekbooks feature exclusive HP innovations, including HP CoolSense for a noticeably cooler PC and HP ProtectSmart to help prevent file loss in case of a drop. In addition, users have access to HP Connected Music, which brings music lovers a new way to enjoy some of the world’s most popular artists through HP’s partnership with Universal Music Group, the world’s leading music company.
Consumers can access exclusive HP Music Rewards Packages via the HP Connected Music launcher embedded on Windows 8 HP consumer PCs including HP Private Events, Music Experiences and VIP Pack Trips.
The HP Pavilion Sleekbook and Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook are expected to be available in South Africa in mid-March.
The HP IPS Monitors (22xi – 23xi) brings premium-quality IPS technology to everyday computing at affordable prices. With upgraded 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles, these displays deliver clear, vivid images across the ultra-wide viewing spectrum.
The monitors also are upgraded with a thinner HP industrial design, and connectivity that covers digital, multimedia and analog options.
With unique HP features such as controllable power-saving modes and customisable screen settings with integrated HP My Display software, consumers can partition the screen so that multiple application windows can be open at the same time, while also saving user-preferred settings for easy startup. Available in South Africa from mid-March.
The HP x2401 24-inch LED Backlit Monitor is a micro-thin monitor with MVA technology that produces wide viewing angles for vivid, consistent color. The monitor features an adjustable easel stand and L-connectors to keep cables in the back for a clean look, and includes DP/HDMI connectivity and a VESA mount.
It has a brushed metal finish and is ideal for customers who value design innovation.
The HP ProDisplay Series Monitors (available in 20-inch and 21,5-inch models) gives the everyday business display an upgrade. Practical, reliable and designed with energy efficiency in mind, this display has excellent front-of-screen performance for crisp clear text and images and more screen room to roam.
A sculpted, soft black slender form almost vanishes into the background and keeps the vibrant images displayed on the LED backlit panel the main focus.
The HP ZR2330w IPS LED Backlit Monitor offers business-class performance at a budget-friendly price. IPS technology delivers brilliant color from almost any angle, and because this monitor is equipped with advanced connectivity, this display is perfect for multi-screen setups. VGA, DVI and DisplayPort inputs work with legacy and new devices while the integrated USB hub keeps peripherals close at hand.
Flexible height, tilt, swivel and pivot adjustments offer true ergonomic benefits to customers so they can be productive throughout the day.
