HP Helps Students Move to Head of the Class

Sleek, affordable PCs, printers and accessories make the grade

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- With a new school year quickly approaching, HP offers a wide array of PCs and printers designed to help students of all ages succeed in the learning environment.

HP Photosmart e-All-in-One printers have it all for students

  • The HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One printer delivers high-quality documents and lab-quality, fade-resistant photos using five individual inks. It also has a large, vibrant touchscreen enabled with popular print apps, such as Crayola and Scholastic, for printing web content without connecting to a PC.(1) The HP Photosmart 7520 will be available in early September at HP Home & Home Office for $199, and at select retailers.(3)

Back-to-school tech for the whole family

A recent Wakefield Research survey commissioned by HP asked 1,000 parents with children ages 6 to 17 about their children’s PC use. The survey found that technology becomes a significant part of a child’s homework as early as age 10 and that in general, children are spending up to three hours a day on internet-connected devices. With HP’s computing and printing solutions, connecting to the internet is kid-friendly and parent-approved.

  • Simple yet powerful, the elegant HP Pavilion 23 All-in-One PC complements any room and offers exclusive features, such as HP Magic Canvas and HP LinkUp, to satisfy all computing needs at a great value. It’s available now at HP Home & Home Office starting $649, and at select retailers.(3)
