Fresh Tech: HP @intlCES 2013

8347756428_d8af9ee6d1_sToday HP announces nine new products, including the world’s first Beats Audio-integrated display; a pocket-sized storage device for wireless content streaming; and HP’s most affordable touch notebook ever. Check out the standouts below.

Monitor:
The HP ENVY 27-inch IPS Monitor with Beats Audio has the power to perform and a sleek look. Developed collaboratively with Beats by Dr. Dre, it provides a unique and immersive audiovisual experience. Built-in speakers angled upward deliver great midrange and high frequencies, with equally rich bass. The studio-quality sound on the HPENVY 27 monitor allows consumers to hear music the way the artists intended.

The In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel provides a viewing angle of 178 degrees horizontally and vertically so friends can enjoy entertainment content without having to crowd in front of the display. Edge-to-edge glass, a super-slim design (13.95 mm thin at top) and a narrow aluminum base make the display look great in a home or office. Unique audio aspects, including a conveniently located headphone jack, subwoofer and digital audio output are included.

Thin and light notebook PCs:
The HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook and the new HP Pavilion Sleekbook provide affordable performance in a thin and light package. Powered by an AMD A-Series APU, the newest HP Sleekbooks feature a 15.6-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) display; up to 1 terabyte of storage for apps, movies, music, photos, documents and more; Dolby Advanced Audio; a removable battery; and a numeric keyboard for increased productivity.

A full array of ports including HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 provide fast connections to mobile devices and accessories. The HP Sleekbooks include HP TrueVision HD Webcams and HPMyRoom for video calling and sharing photos a private virtual room. Optional AMD Radeon discrete graphics on select models enhance the gaming experience and improve video creation and playback.

Breakthrough entertainment device:

The HP Pocket Playlist goes beyond what's expected from portable media storage and entertainment. With no internet connection required while streaming and no need for a data plan, this innovative portable device streams unencrypted content—movies, music, TV shows and photos—to up to five mobile devices at the same time. This premium entertainment device acts like a home DVR but is smaller and lighter than the average smartphone, making it easy to take anywhere.

The HP Pocket Playlist comes with a one-month subscription to PlayLater, a new DVR app for online content. This app allows prerecording of videos from more than 50 online websites for playback later without an internet connection. The device holds up to 16 full-length movies, 7,600 songs or 10,000 photos, and plays to most Wi-Fi enabled Android, Windows and iOS mobile devices.
