Current Pavilion laptops have gotten a bit of a makeover, plus a new almost-ultrabook entry.
The wildcard for HP's new PCs is whether they have the designs and enough sex appeal to entice workers to tote them to their corporations.
HP unveiled three new printers today, the most interesting of which is an incremental update to its mobile printer, the HP Officejet 150 Mobile.
Based on HP's Envy Ultrabook and Sleekbook unveilings yesterday, it's clear that the naming problems for slim laptops aren't going away anytime soon.
Industrial design chief dismisses a claim that HP's Envy Spectre XT Ultrabook looks like Apple's MacBook Air, arguing that form follows function and Apple doesn't "own silver."
Not all ultrathin laptops have Intel's proprietary ultrabook sticker.
How inexpensive can an ultrabook get? For HP, today's answer is $749 -- or, if you're considering an AMD "sleekbook," $599.
The 4-pound Samsung Series 5 isn't as light and portable as some slim 14-inch laptops, but this AMD-powered version can be found at a significant discount if you shop around.
This near-ultrabook packs in processing and graphics power, along with an optical drive, at a reasonable price. The only real knock against the Pavilion m6 is that some of HP's higher-end systems hardly cost more.
