HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition
HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition is designed and engineered to offer power and performance along with state-of-the-art audio technology and an overall superior PC experience.
This Beats Edition notebook includes Beats Audio, a unique, high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre™ to provide the optimal sound experience – the way the artist intended it – when playing music or audio through headphones or external speakers.
In a sleek and soft-touch, precision-crafted aluminum design, the HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition maintains the signature Beats Audio black and red design style and includes a red backlit keyboard and three custom Beats-themed wallpapers.
To take advantage of its powerful performance and entertainment capabilities, the HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition – as well as the HP ENVY 17 – includes Adobe Photoshop® Elements 8 and Adobe® Premiere Elements 8 software for photo and video editing on select models.
Offering up to 6.5 hours of battery life with the standard battery, and up to 13 hours with the optional HP Slim Fit Extended-Life battery, the HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition includes powerful Intel Core processors and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphics for demanding tasks.
Each HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition comes with Beats by Dr. Dre Solo™ Headphones from Monster with ControlTalk™, and additional headphones may be purchased. Beats Solos have an advanced driver design for precise audio clarity.
Beats Audio was developed in collaboration with legendary artist and producer Dr. Dre and chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records and Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine. Unveiled last October in the first Beats Edition notebook, Beats Audio also is available on all HP ENVY premium notebooks as well as the HP Pavilion dv7 and HP TouchSmart 600.
HP Pavilion dm3
Thin and light, the HP Pavilion dm3 notebook PC is literally a cool notebook. Innovative HP CoolSense Technology combines advanced hardware and intelligent cooling software to pioneer a notebook that feels noticeably cooler and automatically adjusts cooling levels according to a customer’s personal preferences.
Advanced materials – metal alloys, soft-touch paint and non-conductive surfaces – plus strategically placed vents minimize heat and channel it away from the bottom of the PC for optimal comfort.
HP Thermal Assistant software detects how the PC is being used – for example, around the house or on a desk – and an accelerometer automatically shifts into either a maximum cooling mode or maximum performance mode based on the customer’s choice.
With HP Fences, users can effortlessly organize desktop multimedia content, such as photos, music and videos, by categories, then access them quickly, keeping the desktop uncluttered.
The HP Pavilion dm3 includes a 13.3-inch diagonal HD display, an island-style keyboard with optional backlit feature and a stylish and durable metal finish with soft-touch surfaces in matte black.
Offering up to 7.5 hours of battery life and measuring less than 1-inch thin, the HP Pavilion dm3 gives consumers the ideal balance of mobility and performance in an affordable, slim and light notebook PC.
