HP has a new artistic notebook, the Pavilion dv2800 Artist Edition. This notebook features artwork by the Portuguese designer Joao Oliveira for a distinctive look and features the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS GPU.
For artists and designers worldwide, visual computing is an essential tool for personal expression. Earlier this year NVIDIA launched its NVart initiative, a competition which challenges entrants to create stunning digital artworks on a series of themes. The first NVart winners will be on display at the Tate Modern Museum in London as part of Supernatural Studios’ ‘Digital Dreams’ lecture series and exhibition. Visitors to the event will also have the opportunity to get hands-on with the HP Artist Edition Notebook and enter a competition to win one for themselves.
With GeForce at its heart, the HP Artist Edition Notebook not only delivers high performance in creative applications but also provides great communication and entertainment features, helping users to stay connected at work and play. “Advances in graphics technology mean that the PC is now as indispensible to artists as paint or a canvass,” says Bernhard Gleissner, NVIDIA Vice President of Sales EMEA and India.
“Our technology enables the digital art community worldwide to realise their ideas and we’re delighted to showcase their talent through initiatives like ‘Digital Dreams’ and NVart.”
"Thanks to NVIDIA GeForce graphics, the HP Pavilion dv2800 Artist Edition Notebook is as visually appealing on the inside as it is on the outside," said Achim Kuttler, vice president and general manager, consumer products, Personal Systems Group, HP EMEA. "The combination of the notebook's stunning, stand-out design and its great graphics performance ensure that our young, IT-savvy customers have access to both style and substance."
The Artists Edition Notebook will be available in France, UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Turkey, Middle-East, Nordics, Portugal, Switzerland and Russia from April 2008.
