Bracknell, UK, 8th Sept, 2011 - HP today introduced the updated HP Pavilion dm1, a consumer notebook featuring Beats Audio and HP Premier Experience - an exclusive set of innovations designed to improve on the Microsoft WindowsTM experience.
The Pavilion dm1 is the ultimate blend of performance and mobility in a stylish package, with a battery life of up to 9.5 hours.
With the addition of HP Beats AudioTM, a unique, high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. DreTM, the Pavilion dm1 offers first-class entertainment for mobile users.
High-quality graphics performance enables crisper and more vivid video playback on its 29.5cm (11.6") high-definition (HD) LED display, and the built-in HP TrueVision HD webcam captures high-quality images even in low-light conditions.
The compact machine has a range of storage options and also packs power with the latest integrated AMD processors. Thin and light, the dm1 measures less than 2.5cm (1") in front and starts at 1.6kg.
Unique, streamlined user experience
HP Premier Experience delivers a streamlined Windows experience that makes Pavilion notebooks cleaner, faster and more intuitive.
Part of the Premier Experience, HP Launch Box allows applications to be better organised by grouping them for quick access on the Windows 7 taskbar. A simple mouse-over and click launches an application directly from the taskbar, freeing up screen real estate on the PC's desktop. Including the dm1, Launch Box is available on 70 percent of consumer notebook models.
Additionally, a simplified, better-organised Windows Start Menu allows users to find applications faster.
With HP Premier Experience, consumer notebooks have quicker boot-up, shutdown, sleep and resume times, allowing users to access their content quickly. The dm1 shows an approximate 29 and 25 percent improvement on shutdown and resume times, respectively. Boot times and sleep times are also improved.
On select platforms, HP Premier Experience also features HP innovations such as:
- HP CoolSense technology automatically adjusts performance and internal fan settings for a noticeably cooler PC. Whether on a user's lap, at a desk or on the move, HP CoolSense technology keeps the PC's surface temperature at an optimum level of comfort.
- HP QuickWeb takes users directly to the web within seconds of powering on, bypassing the full operating system start up. Users are seconds from chatting with friends on SkypeTM, updating Facebook posts or tweets and viewing their social calendar all in one place.
- HP ProtectSmart features a built-in accelerometer that detects when a PC is bumped or dropped, locking the hard drive into place within milliseconds to help protect important files. ProtectSmart's safeguard modes run without interrupting day-to-day use.
Elements of the Premier Experience - like CoolSense, ProtectSmart and QuickWeb - are available today on 90 percent of HP's consumer notebook models.
Pricing and availability
- The HP Pavilion dm1 with AMD processors is expected to be available on October 2nd with a starting price of £349.99.
