[MUSIC] I'm Dan Ackerman over here taking a look at HP's Pavilion lineup of back-to-school laptops. The new 2015 version of the classic Pavilion comes in 14-, 15-, and 17-inch versions in a whole bunch of different colors now, and they've got the color on the back of the lid, and the hinge, and on the bottom,. And there are even a whole bunch of color-matching accessories if you really wanna coordinate everything. One of the really interesting things is even the smallest working inch model, this is the 15 right here. It's brought back the optical drive. It, very few places, especially in smaller laptops you can still get an optical drive. This drive comes in all three sizes of the new Pavillion. And you can get any combination of regular HD. That's the 1366 by 768, or full HD, 1920 by 1080. Screens in either touch or non-touch, and a huge variety of processors, from AMD and Intel. And including the current gen Core i3, i5, and i7 models. Is one of the first machines with HP's new partnership with Bang and Olufsen. They provide some sound shaping software they actually listen to the individual speakers on each side, and each model, and come up with some tuning that will make the speakers sound better. These will start at under $500 and be available around back to school timeframes in the summer. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is HP's new back to school Pavillion laptop lineup.
