Desktops and Notebooks: HP Back-to-School Laptops Include 3D, Intel Core, Redesigns
HP is introducing refreshed laptops for the back-to-school season, with new features baked into everything from the HP 210 Mini notebooks to the higher-end HP Envy series. More entertainment-centric features include 3D and Beats Audio sound technology, but more powerful processors and graphics will likely appeal to a broad range of consumers, students and businesspeople. HP also seems determined to enliven the look of its laptop lines, with new colors and sleeker designs. Some of this redesign is performance-related, such as the HP Pavilion dm3's heat-dispensing architecture; but much of it simply intends to set HP apart from other manufacturers.
