HP Updates Pavilion DM1 with Beats Audio and New Apps

Written on September 08, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

HP refreshes its Pavilion DM1 laptop with few spec bumps, a new design and some software add-ons.

HP has finally updated its Pavilion DM1 laptop. The 11.6-inch crossover notebook is now equipped with a Beats Audio processing system, providing better sound quality from the speakers and headphones. It is also updated with AMD’s Fusion-based, 1.65GHz E-350 and low-voltage Intel chips — which is expected to make the device faster than before.

The Pavilion DM1 ultraportable laptop also gets a revamped software. An HP Launch Box has just been added, therefore, allowing the applications to be easily organized by grouping them on the Windows 7 taskbar. A simple mouse click would open an application directly from the taskbar, which frees up screen real estate on the notebook’s desktop. The new battery is also notable, as it could support up to 11.5 hours of usage.

There would be two versions for the Pavilion DM1: A charcoal gray model and a unique ash black variant with a soft finish. The gray models will be shipped on September 21 for a price of $400; it will feature an E-450 processor, a Radeon HD 6320 video, 4GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. The variant with Intel processors will be available in charcoal on October 30 for $600; while the ash black versions will be rolled out sometime in fall.

HP Releases a New Batch of TouchPad for Existing Orders

Written on September 08, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

HP releases another batch of their discontinued HP TouchPad to fulfill those existing orders from their customers.

HP’s Small and Medium Business division sent out an e-mail to its customers who placed orders but did not receive shipment of the now-discontinued TouchPad. The company told its customers that it will start fulfilling their orders at the promised discounted price – $99 – in about six to eight weeks. The e-mail was sent directly at SMB customers only, and does not apply to other customers who might have unfulfilled orders from the regular home channel.

The time frame shows that the company would be fulfilling the said orders by the end of October, which is similar to the company’s stated intent of shipping a new batch of units by the end of its current fiscal quarter. HP has not yet unveiled the quantity of unfulfilled orders for the webOS tablet, but it is said that the firm or its suppliers had enough parts and inventory on hand to build at least 100,000 TouchPad.

HP: Releasing Limited New TouchPads in Few Weeks

Written on August 31, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

HP promised to release a limited number of TouchPad units, after disclosing that they will leave the smartphone and tablet market.

HP will be ramping up their manufacturing for a limited production run of their TouchPad tablets. The said company unveiled through their The Next Bench blog that it will be developing an unspecified number of new units. HP gave no indication on delivery, other than it will be at least few weeks and will occur during the current fiscal quarter which ends on October 31.

HP shocked the industry when it suddenly announced that it was leaving the smartphone and tablet market earlier this month. The company – and its partners – then dropped the price of the tablet to as low as $99, creating a buying frenzy. Inventories will be consumed in a matter of hours.

The company said that it would try to limit quantities available to individual purchasers in an effort to avoid hoarding and profiteering. HP also said it would attempt to fulfill orders already successfully placed through its HP Home & Home Office and HP Small & Medium Business online stores.

BestBuy Sells TouchPad Despite of HP’s Decision

Written on August 22, 2011 by Lulu

BestBuy put their remaining HP TouchPad on sale despite of the company's decision to end all all hardware development and production of the said device.

BestBuy has reconsidered its position in selling the TouchPad again in US despite HP’s decision to shutter its webOS division, ending all hardware development and production. Instead of sending back unsold ToucPads to HP, BestBuy decided to put all the remaining units in their hands on sale.

While not all stores have stocks of HP’s TouchPad, those that do only have them on hand in limited numbers. It is also expected that it will quickly sell out of any remaining stocks on hand. BestBuy stores which have units in stock will be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only model for $100, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model will be sold for $150. The stocks of the said device are limited to one unit per customer, while all the sales will be final with no exchange or refunds policy offered for any reason.

The expected rush for the remaining units represents an interesting scenario for HP. Questions are likely to be asked as to whether it exited the market too soon – given the renewed interest in the product – despite of support for it being severed beyond its 12 month warranty.

A new study showed that the Apple is the only PC maker based in Western Europe that is still growing

Gartner stated that Apple was the only major computer manufacturer based in Western Europe that is still growing. That is according to a continent wide breakdown on Wednesday. Apple increased its shipments by half a percent to hit 7% of the market, while other Windows-based PC makers dropped in the same timeframe. HP and Delli gained shares, but still saw their shipments drop by 6.1% and 12.7% respectively. ACER, on the other hand, faced a disastrous flop after its abnormalities in overstock forced it to ship 44.6% fewer PCs, and drop to 2nd place at 16.7%.

The pattern was largely consistent from country to country. Apple gained shares in the UK and had a boost in France where its raw shipments were increase up to 6.4 points. Enough to put it in the top five for the first time. Samsung was one of the few others to see an upside in any area, but only registered in the top five in France.

The battle for the best ultra-portable laptop is heating up, as HP is set to unveil at least two Ultrabooks to take on Apple's MacBook Air.

The war between ultra-portable laptops is firing up, as HP is anticipated to be the first to release laptops based on Intel’s new Ultrabook category: Slim, affordable laptops, which can be a worthy alternative for Apple’s MacBook Air. DigiTimes also reported that HP is slated to launch at least two Ultrabook models prior to ASUS UX21.

Sources also informed DigiTimes that HP Ultrabooks will use Intel’s Core i7-2677M and i7-2637M dual-core CPUs. However, the chip maker’s guidelines for Ultrabooks indicate that the HP models will be 0.8-inches thick, with long battery-life, and should be tagged under $1,000.

With Apple expected to unveil a MacBook air refresh in the coming days, the timing of this news makes it very interesting. The race for the best ultra-portable laptop is about to start.
