Hewlett-Packard Executive Vice President Todd Bradley kicks off HP's Mobility Summit in San Francisco by introducing seven new notebooks that represent a significant update to HP's design strategy.
Ted Clark, the head of HP's notebook division, walked attendees through the details of each of the new notebooks, which cover both the home and business side of HP's product categories. They range in price from $749 to $1,649; detailed specifications can be found on HP's Web site.
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.
The nc2400 costs $1,599.
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'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.
