Ao trocar o Intel Atom pelo AMD Fusion como principal componente do laptop dm1, a HP está na vanguarda de fabricantes apresentando PCs do tamanho de netbooks com desempenho de um notebook completo. Isto significa vídeo 1080p e gráficos DirectX em um laptop de 11,6 polegadas.
O dm1 tem cerca de 2,5cm de espessura e diz ter bateria com duração de 10 horas – coisas que sempre se espera de um netbook. Mas ao contrário dos seus irmãos com Atom, o dm1 consegue reproduzir vídeos em 1080p sem engasgar. Ele suporta até 8GB de RAM e tem disco rígido de 320GB, além de três portas USB 2.0, porta VGA e porta HDMI. E uma certa alegria de saber que você vai poder usar a porta HDMI.
Mas não fiquemos tão animados: o dm1 parece ser meio pesado com seus 1,6kg, e o processador vai só até 1,6GHz. Mas só as possibilidades gráficas já são um sinal promissor do que está por vir em dispositivos ultraportáteis com Fusion.
Os outros laptops da HP também têm novidades: os modelos Envy 17 e Pavilion foram atualizados para a segunda geração dos porcessadores Intel Core
. O Envy também ganhou a tencologia de resfriamento CoolSense, proprietária da HP, enquanto os desktops Pavilion receberam alto-falantes da Beats Audio.
O Pavilion dm1 estará disponível dia 9 de janeiro nos EUA por US$450, assim como os notebooks Pavilion, que custarão a partir de US$900 pelo modelo dv6. O novo Envy 17, no entanto, chega “em breve”.

The powerful HP ENVY 17, first introduced in May, now features HP CoolSense Technology, making it the first high-performance HP PC with advanced cooling technology.
AMD switchable graphics technology dynamically alternates between integrated graphics and AMD Radeon HD 6850M discrete graphics for enhanced performance and battery life.(2) Coupled with future second-generation Intel Core processors, the HP ENVY 17 is the ultimate multimedia machine, sharing content wirelessly from the notebook PC to TVs and other screens using Intel Wireless Display technology.

HP brings increased power and Beats Audio to Pavilion lines
Future second-generation Intel Core processors and AMD Radeon graphics technology will be included on the HP Pavilion dv6 and dv7 notebook PCs and the HP Pavilion p6700, Slimline s5700 and Elite HPE-500 series desktop PCs. Select models of the HP Pavilion, Slimline and Elite HPE-series desktop PCs also will include HP’s Multi-Display Capable technology. This new feature allows users to expand programs, run several applications or enjoy a more intense gaming experience on side-by-side monitors.
The new HP Pavilion desktop PCs also will feature Beats Audio, which was created by Beats by Dr. Dre co-founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine to restore the emotion that is missing from digital music. Working in collaboration with HP, Iovine and Dr. Dre tuned and applied the signature Beats sound profile across HP’s premium notebook and desktop lines to provide the optimal sound experience – the way the artist intended it – when playing music or audio through headphones or external speakers.
This year, most HP consumer desktops, laptops and minis are expected to ship with free 60-day Norton Internet Security(7) protection. New features include integrated parental controls and performance alerts that indicate when an application is slowing down the PC, so changes can be made to improve performance.
