HP dv2000

The new HP dv2000 entertainment notebook comes with an expansion base that makes it easier to use the notebook in a fixed place. The notebook features a unique design developed by Nissha Film Products on the back of its 14.1-inch wide-screen display. The notebook starts at $1,099, while the xb3000 expansion base costs $249.

HP nc2400

HP hosted a Tuesday product fair that allowed for a closer look at the nc2400, which has a 12.1-inch wide-screen display and weighs just 2.8 pounds in its basic configuration. PC companies have recently re-embraced the ultraportable laptop, which hasn't been a huge seller in recent years but is very popular with traveling executives and in markets outside the U.S.

The nc2400 costs $1,599.

Tablet PC

HP didn't forget to update its Tablet PC, the tc4400. This model keeps the convertible design, which lets consumers either operate the PC like a traditional notebook or rotate the screen to cover the keyboard and use in tablet mode. This system has been updated with Intel's Core Duo processors and will be available in early June for $1,649.

HP nc6400

HP's new nc6400 laptop is the company's latest "workhorse corporate notebook," according to notebook head Ted Clark. It comes with a 14.1-inch display and a built-in privacy filter that shields the screen from prying eyes across the airplane aisle. It will be available later this month for $1,549.
