HP just made it easier to connect with the people, entertainment and information you care about the most. These new, beautifully designed HP products have innovative features to connect your world and enhance your personal computing experience.

In the house: Centered around your life

New HP home entertainment solutions enhance your digital lifestyle. Keep up with busy family activities and enjoy movies, photos, music, videos and a world of connected entertainment. Or access dynamic content and digital media services at home or away.

The next-generation, touch-enabled HP TouchSmart IQ500 Series PCs shatter the mold of traditional family desktop computing with fast, easy access to entertainment, social networks and PC applications at the touch of a finger.

New HP Displays are beautifully designed, high-performance widescreen monitors that offer a host of features — from BrightView technology to HDMI — to deliver the best visual experience for your digital home.

The HP MediaSmart Server is the ideal solution to access, share and protect your digital content across multiple PCs in your home and on the go.

And, HP Digital Picture Frames offer great quality, easy operation and a range of decors and color schemes. Choose 7-, 8-, or 10-inch diagonal displays or the new pocket-sized 3.5-inch mini frame.

At home or away: Stand out from the crowd

Captivating new designs and experiences

Look for new accessories from docking options and Webcams(2) to mice, storage devices and skins!

It's effortless and fun to connect with friends, family, entertainment and more with new feature-packed notebook PCs and accessories.(2)

Choose the performance and capabilities that suit you — including innovative designs and immersive entertainment possibilities. New additions range from thin, light notebooks to desktop alternatives.

HP Pavilion dv series Entertainment Notebooks sport an elegant, sophisticated design using a new metallic finish for a silky touch.

HP QuickPlay and everything-in-one entertainment features make it easy to do the things you want to do, such as watch TV(1) — whether live, streamed via Internet channels,(2) or by remote control using a Sling Box. You can easily create and share your digital media, keep up with friends using the Webcam,(2) or upload your Webcam(2) videos to social networking(2) sites.

For classic style made simple and affordable, check out Compaq Presario Notebooks. They combine essential features, reliability and value with a sleek, glossy black design that blends style, form and function in the freedom and productivity of a notebook.

In the lap of luxury: Fusing art and technology

For style-conscious technology lovers
» Voodoo Omen Desktop: Sophistication meets power.
» Voodoo Envy 133 Notebook: Mobility and functionality combined.

Indulge your passion for extreme speed, performance and design with ultra-cool and luxurious PCs. If you crave a sophisticated, powerful PC, the new Voodoo Omen Desktop has an eye-catching look and a range of performance, innovation and personalization features for a stunning sensory experience.

For the extreme in mobile computing, see the new Voodoo Envy 133 Notebook. Weighing less than 3.4 pounds,(3) it has the functionality of a regular-sized notebook, expansion capabilities and an array of personalization possibilities and industry-first innovations.

On the job: Make a statement

Maintain a productive, organized business life with powerful, ultra-stylish, industry-leading HP solutions — designed for a range of company sizes and connectivity needs.

New HP Business Notebooks balance performance, mobility and value. Whether you're looking for something sophisticated, smart or simple, there are three different series to choose from to reflect your professional style.

New HP Business Displays include the HP DreamColor LP2480zx Professional LCD Display. This 30-bit color-critical display is the only LCD monitor built with HP DreamColor Engine technology.

The RGB LED-backlit display delivers broad color support, accurate color space management, programmable white point, CRT-class black levels and consistent presentation results on a 24-inch diagonal wide-aspect screen.

Now, from concept to final product, you can have repeatable precision on one display or thousands across the globe — and create accurate, predictable real-world color.

There's no better time to connect with the people, entertainment and information most important to you. And, with these attention-grabbing HP designs, there's no better way to look good doing it.
