"HP is creating notebook computers that captivate consumers by combining sleek and striking designs with immersive entertainment capabilities that make for a great user experience," said Elena Danici, Consumer Products Manager, PSG, HP Middle East. "Our new line-up raises the bar even higher with notebooks that are tailored for the ever-changing lifestyle of people who are on the go and need to stay connected."

HP Pavilion notebooks deliver exquisite design and powerful entertainment

Inspired by a close eye on future fashion trends and extensive customer research, the HP Pavilion notebooks set a new standard in notebook design with innovations such as the Mesh Imprint surface design and invisible "magical chrome" controls that light up and become fully interactive upon power up. Smooth lines, optional HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen flush-glass screens, along with colour-matched keyboards and touch pads create a frameless, thin and elegant appearance.

The new HP Pavilion notebook series provide consumers a choice of the latest AMD and Intel processors and a high-speed eSATA interface for backup to external storage drives. The series also introduce built-in HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection technology, previously only available in HP business-class notebooks. This technology automatically detects if a notebook has been dropped and, while the notebook is on its brief journey to the floor, automatically stops the hard drive from spinning, helping to prevent the loss of files and data.

Matching outer style with inner power, the new HP Pavilion series offer a broad range of features and sizes to match consumers' lifestyles.

The HP Pavilion dv4 Entertainment Notebook PC packs the latest technology into a 14.1-inch diagonal display. Entertainment-ready, the HP Pavilion dv4 offers a choice of integrated TV tuner and Blu- ray(2) optical drive, delivering a portable high-definition(3) experience. Other options include mobile wireless broadband (4) for those who need to stay connected without having to find a wireless hotspot.(5)

For users seeking an ideal balance among mobility, performance and screen size, the HP Pavilion dv5 Entertainment Notebook PC delivers a mid-size, 15.4-inch diagonal display, exquisite design and powerful entertainment with optional discrete graphics from NVIDIA and ATI.

The HP Pavilion dv7 Entertainment Notebook PC's 17-inch diagonal display and sleek design deliver powerful high-definition entertainment for TV, photos, movies and music with full-size realism that makes it an ideal alternative to desktop PCs. The HP Pavilion dv7 brings together a rich set of standard features such as premium multi-channel audio and options such as subwoofer, Blu-ray optical drive, built-in TV tuner and robust graphics from ATI and NVIDIA.(2)

Style made simple and affordable

Designed for those on the go, the versatile Compaq Presario CQ50 Notebook PC features a 15.4-inch diagonal display, new industrial design along with a range of optical drives, built-in wireless (6) technologies, high-quality audio, webcam and analogue microphone capabilities.
