- For maximum sensory appeal, HP delivers the thrill of 3-D entertainment to the HP ENVY 17 3D – the first 17-inch notebook PC to support 1080p 3-D and Blu-ray – and superb audio to the HP ENVY 14 Beats™ Edition.
- HP Wireless TV Connect allows customers to wirelessly experience 1080p high-definition (HD) Blu-ray multimedia content.
HP ENVY 17 3D
With advanced 3-D technology as well as Beats Audio and an HP Triple Bass Reflex subwoofer, the HP ENVY 17 3D has the power and performance to deliver an unbelievable entertainment experience. It will feature a 17.3-inch HP 3D Ultra BrightView Display that supports crisp, 1080p full HD viewing.
HP 3D Active Shutter Glasses provide a seamless viewing experience by wirelessly synchronizing each frame of the 3-D content between the display and the glasses, enabling a higher quality image.
With up to 2 terabytes(3) of storage capacity, powerful quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 processors and ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5850 discrete graphics, the HP ENVY 17 3D has the horsepower and flexibility to handle the most demanding tasks simultaneously. Listen to me folks, with these specs this is one hell of a notebook, I’m talking it could give some desktops a run for their money.
This Beats Edition notebook includes Beats Audio, a unique, high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre™ to provide the optimal sound experience – the way the artist intended it – when playing music or audio through headphones or external speakers.
To take advantage of its powerful performance and entertainment capabilities, the HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition – as well as the HP ENVY 17 – includes Adobe Photoshop® Elements 8 and Adobe® Premiere Elements 8 software for photo and video editing on select models.
Each HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition comes with Beats by Dr. Dre Solo™ Headphones from Monster with ControlTalk™, and additional headphones may be purchased. Beats Solos have an advanced driver design for precise audio clarity.
HP Pavilion dm3
Thin and light, the HP Pavilion dm3 notebook PC is literally a cool notebook. Innovative HP CoolSense Technology combines advanced hardware and intelligent cooling software to pioneer a notebook that feels noticeably cooler and automatically adjusts cooling levels according to a customer’s personal preferences.
Advanced materials – metal alloys, soft-touch paint and non-conductive surfaces – plus strategically placed vents minimize heat and channel it away from the bottom of the PC for optimal comfort.
HP Thermal Assistant software detects how the PC is being used – for example, around the house or on a desk – and an accelerometer automatically shifts into either a maximum cooling mode or maximum performance mode based on the customer’s choice.
The HP Pavilion dm3 includes a 13.3-inch diagonal HD(2) display, an island-style keyboard with optional backlit feature and a stylish and durable metal finish with soft-touch surfaces in matte black.
HP Wireless TV Connect
Complementing HP’s PC portfolio, HP Wireless TV Connect allows customers to wirelessly stream 1080p HD multimedia content, such as Blu-ray movies, videos and photos, from the notebook PC to a TV or home entertainment center without the clutter of audio or video cables.
By simply connecting the PC adapter to the notebook PC and connecting the TV adapter to the HDTV via HDMI, users have the freedom to experience 1080p HD content without a timelag between the notebook PC and the display and without installing software. HP Wireless TV Connect fully supports protected content such as Blu-ray and DVD movies.
The HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition and HP Pavilion dm3 are currently available in the United States with the following starting prices:
- HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition: $1,249
- HP Pavilion dm3: $549
The HP ENVY 17 3D is expected to be available this holiday season with pricing to be determined. The HP Wireless TV Connect accessory is expected to be available in the United States next month with a starting price of $199.
