HP announces 2011 Pavilion series desktops and 23 inch x2301 Micro Thin display

New 2011 HP Pavilion series desktops
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 should be available […]
