HP Australia’s Product Marketing Director for the Consumer PC group, Tony Ignatavicius said, “Through technology young consumers can express themselves in a myriad of ways – on MySpace profiles, blogs, sharing photos, storing their music – so it makes sense that the notebook they use says something about their own style and personality. The distinctly different designs and colours in our latest notebook product range are another way for young people to express their individual personalities to their peers.”

The HP Pavilion dv6700 Series Entertainment Notebook PC has a dynamic bronze exterior and a ‘Thrive’ imprint finish for users who want a notebook that is out of the ordinary. This notebook comes with a Blu-ray drive and HDMI port that will allow users to watch HD movies on a 1080p screen and has a set of quick launch buttons for easy multimedia browsing.
Succeeding the tx1000 is HP’s Pavilion tx2000 Notebook PC. This notebook sports an ‘Echo’ imprint and can be used as a tablet PC by twisting the screen. It is powered by an AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile processor, sports a 12.1-inch screen, and is more ‘responsive’ than the tx1000, HP says.
