May 9, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

This is for those who missed out on all that action at HP a while ago! The company’s slew of products got an awesome roll out, and the many devices that were pushed out of the company’s labs simply tend to leave us tempted. The new PC series aims at providing a blend of sleek style, ultra portability and performance of the highest level. Along with the notebooks, a pre-paid 3G mobile broadband service that allows users to purchase wireless broadband data using major carriers in the US was also launched by the company.

The first in the series of notebooks is the less than 1-inch ProBook 5330m, featuring a dual-tone color scheme, brushed aluminum chassis and backlit keyboard. This would be HP’s first notebook to offer Beats Audio, allowing listeners to hear music the way the artist wanted to. Powered by the latest second generation Intel Core i5 and i3 dual-core processors, the ProBook 5330m includes HP Fingerprint Sensor and TPM for enhanced hardware based data security. The machine is designed for the savvy business professional who values style, performance and affordability. The HP ProBook 5330m could be bought for $799.

Available in a dashing platinum color, the ultraportable HP EliteBook 2560p Notebook PC and EliteBook 2760 Tablet PCs are two attention seeking models that offer second-generation Intel Core i7 or i5 dual processors. They also feature 7,200 RPM hard disk drives and solid-state drives for longer battery run time, enhanced durability and quieter operation. The EliteBook 2560p sports a thin design and has a 12.5-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD, a 16 x 9 inch display, and is the only machine in this class to offer an integrated optical drive.

The EliteBook 2760 has all the same functionality of a conventional business notebook along with added options of writing tablets and also allows pen use or finger touch. The HP EliteBook 2560p starts at $1,099; while the HP EliteBook 2760p starts at $1,499.

The HP Mini 210 has undergone some redesigning and now has been spotted in 5 vibrant new colors-sweet purple, charcoal, crimson red, luminous rose and ocean drive. With an addition of Beats Audio, the Mini 210 offers a high-quality entertainment. The battery pack could give you up to 9.5 hours of computing. The Mini 210 also features HP Quick Web 3.0; this allows users to be more productive by speeding up the connectivity. The HP Mini 210 starts at $299.99 and is expected to be available on June 15.

With an improved CoolSense technology the HP Pavilion dv4 has simplified the user interface a bit and is ready to go. Rarely do machines in this category come weighing under the 5 pound mark. Another attraction would be the 14-inch diagonal HD LED BrightView screen and the device would be out in espresso black and pacific blue shades. The price starts at $ 599.99 and is expected to be available in the market on the 18th of May.

The Envy 14 will also feature the HP CoolSense technology combining with the new second generation Intel Core processors and the HP imagepad. The award-winning machine has a metal alloy case with a 14.5-inch diagonal, HD BrightView Infinity LED display which would give you an unbelievable aesthetic experience. The HP Envy 14 starts at $999.99 and will be available from the 15th of June.

A formal announcement was also made on the HP SimplePass, now available on the Pavilion dm4, dv6 metal and dv7 metal notebook PCs. The SimplePass helps to prevent fraud by providing unique one-time passwords linked to each individual user’s fingerprint.

Priced at $249 is HP’s slimmest business display, the HP Elite L2201x display easily connects to a notebook via DisplayPort connector.  The machine features a thin display panel measuring less than 0.4 inches thick and a 21.5 inch diagonal. All the HP fans from the United States can shout a big hurray as all the new releases will be available in the United States. HP promises to be on a roll in the coming days, are you going to go all HP or not?
