RISMEDIA, March 30, 2007-HP broadened its notebook PC offerings, announcing two new business notebooks featuring 64-bit, dual-core mobile technology from AMD and an integrated suite of wireless technologies so that users can stay connected at high speeds in more places.
Ideal for mobile professionals looking for the freedom to work in or out of the office, the HP Compaq 6515b and 6715b Notebook PCs feature HP Broadband Wireless, next-generation Wi-Fi with 802.11n (draft) WLAN and BluetoothTM technologies.
Customers also have a choice of two supported WWAN technologies: EV-DO (with Verizon Wireless BroadbandAccess service) and UMTS/HSDPA (with AT&T service). With HP Broadband Wireless, users can conveniently access the Internet, corporate intranet, e-mail and important information in more areas.
Blending mobility with value and performance, these new notebooks offer a choice in AMD's latest processors, including AMD TurionTM 64 X2 dual-core mobile technology.
Multitasking is made easy with AMD's breakthrough dual-core performance, enabling users to run multiple intensive programs simultaneously to accomplish more in less time. These are also HP's first business notebooks designed for Windows VistaTM.
"With the industry's broadest business notebook portfolio, HP provides mobile professionals with devices at a variety of prices without compromising performance," said Carol Hess-Nickels, director, worldwide business notebook marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP. "Business users can satisfy their needs by choosing among HP's array of connectivity options and high-powered processor technologies."
Secure, easy to use and reliable
For enhanced security, the notebooks offer the HP ProtectTools Security Suite, and by including Drive Encryption for HP ProtectTools, HP is offering fully functional Full Volume Encryption as a standard feature. Full Volume Encryption encodes information on a hard drive volume so that it cannot be accessed if the notebook or hard drive is lost or stolen. Also available is the optional HP Privacy Filter that helps protect sensitive information from prying eyes.
The notebooks are convenient and easy to use with features such as intuitive touch-sensitive controls and HP QuickLook(7) for single-button quick access to e-mail, calendar and tasks. They also offer several widescreen display choices. For those who desire a desktop-like view, the 6715b is equipped with a 15.4-inch diagonal widescreen display, with either a WSXGA with anti-glare display or a WXGA with a choice between an anti-glare display or HP BrightView display. The 6515b includes a low-profile 14.1-inch diagonal anti-glare or HP BrightView widescreen display for those seeking enhanced mobility.
An integrated 6-in-1 Media Card Reader on the notebooks makes synchronizing and storing data with different types of devices or other users a snap. Some configurations feature a DVD+/-RW SuperMulti DL LightScribe Drive that allows users to easily burn custom labels directly to disc.
To improve reliability, the notebooks also include HP 3D DriveGuard, which protects against data corruption and loss caused by operational shock. HP's strength in hardware reliability and quality, as well as its improving position in support, was recognized by Technology Business Research's Corporate IT Buying Behavior & Customer Satisfaction study, which ranked HP No. 1 for the last two quarters.
The HP Compaq 6515b and 6715b Notebook PCs complement the rest of HP's notebook lineup with a design that enables the creation of a common image for corporate environments and by offering compatibility with HP Universal Accessories to enable simplified deployment and hassle-free work experience.
Pricing and availability
The HP Compaq 6515b and 6715b Notebook PCs are expected to start at $649. Both are expected to be available in late April, with WWAN availability in May.
