HP has just announced three new Pavilion series consumer desktops today: The compact Pavilion Slimline S5, regular-sized Pavilion p7 and more powerful Pavilion HPE h8. They all feature Beats Audio and Sandy Bridge Intel processors of all sorts. With price tags starting at $330 (s5), $300 (p7) and $600 (h8) respectively, these guys are a lot more affordable (but certainly less powerful) than HP’s Z210 series workstations released last month. They should be available for order on June 15 from HP.
HP also announced a new 23 inch LED backlit display today, the HP x2301 Micro Thin display. It has 1920 x 1080p Full HD resolution like you’d expect from most monitors nowadays but it’s main appeal is its ultra-slim profile, measuring 9.8 mm or just under 0.4 inches thin. It’s a glossy display, comes with a non-detachable base (which doesn’t seem to be adjustable in height either), with connectors for single DVI, VGA and HDMI. It should be available for order on June 10 for just $280.
And it’s really that slim!
