New HP Laptop Crop Match Colors with Performance

by Chris Preimesberger
There is no way anybody can say Hewlett-Packard puts out dull-looking business and personal laptops and notebooks. While you can still buy standard silver, black or white models, HP's designers also can conjure up notebook casings in almost every color in the rainbow - even multicolored patterns. (Orange, purple and puce haven't show up yet, but they may be next.) "In business, coming into a meeting with a classy-looking notebook says a lot about you as a business individual," an HP product manager told eWEEK. The new machines that HP showed to media and analysts on April 27 in San Francisco and released to market on May 5 include both business and personal notebooks using either Intel or AMD chips. They are also packed with plenty of options, including ATI graphics cards and high-end Beats sound systems. All the notebooks in this slideshow are now available through HP's Website.
