HP Introduces World’s Thinnest Full-Performance Notebook and Slim, Stylish Consumer Notebook

(12)

At less than one-inch thin and weighing only 4.2 pounds, the Pavilion dm3 features a lightweight, brushed aluminum chassis in sophisticated Modern Argento gray that makes it easy for consumers to carry virtually anywhere.

In addition, the HP Pavilion dm3 supports optional built-in WWAN for wireless connectivity(8) anywhere a cell phone works and includes a low-light VGA HP Webcam and microphone for staying in touch with friends and family. Lightweight external optical disc drives, including a Blu-ray(13) option, are available.

HP also announced the new HP Envy sub-brand, including a premium thin and light notebook, the HP Envy 13. Additional information on HP Envy will be available the morning of Sept. 15 at www.hp.com/go/ENVY.

Plug-and-compute tools

To meet the needs of increasingly mobile customers, HP has introduced the HP CalcPad 100 and CalcPad. These “plug and compute” accessories are designed to add desktop features to notebook PCs, offering performance and convenience for on-the-go business professionals and college students.

HP CalcPads serve as an extended keyboard number pad or calculator, featuring quick-launch keys for one-touch access to Microsoft® Word or Excel or HP Calculator software, which enables mobile professionals to directly input their calculations seamlessly from CalcPad to notebook. Two built-in USB 2.0 ports allow users to leverage the CalcPad as a USB hub for added peripherals without the additional hardware or cables. The HP CalcPad 100 also can use the USB connectivity to the notebook as a power source.

(3) Weight will vary by configuration.

(4) HD content required to view HD images.

(5) Battery life will vary depending on the product model, configuration, loaded applications, features and power management settings. The maximum capacity of the battery will decrease with time and usage. Sold separately or as an add-on feature.

(6) 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on hardware and software configurations. More information is available at www.intel.com/info/em64t. Dual Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.

(7) Accessible when the notebook is off in Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 based systems. Timing may vary depending on the system configuration. Internet access required. QuickWeb and QuickLook 3 on HP ProBook s-series requires configuration with Intel and DDR3 or AMD and DDR.

(8) Wireless access points and Internet service required and not included. Availability of public wireless access points limited.

(9) As technologically feasible alternatives become readily available that will not compromise product performance or quality and will not adversely impact health or the environment, HP plans to complete the phase out of BFR and PVC in newly introduced personal computing products in 2011.

(10) Meeting the evolving definition of “BFR/PVC-free” as set forth in the “iNEMI Position Statement on the ‘Definition of Low-Halogen’ Electronics (BFR/CFR/PVC-Free).” Plastic parts contain < 1000 ppm (0.1 percent) of bromine (if the Br source is from BFRs) and < 1000 ppm (0.1 percent) of chlorine if the Cl source is from CFRs or PVC or PVC copolymers. Power supply and power cords are not BFR/PVC-free. Service parts after purchase may not be BFR/PVC-free. Configuration is not planned to be available until Sept. 27, 2009.
