With the Consumer Electronics Show kicking off at the end of this week, we can expect to see plenty of gadgets and gear for the New Year. HP is ready for the madness to begin, announcing its new desktop PCs.
Leading the pack is the HP Pavilion Slimline s3330f PC, which includes a built-in Blu-ray/HD DVD player, as well as a TV tuner. It’s also got a NVIDIA GeForce 8500 graphics card with an HDMI port. The system starts at a very respectable $949.
The HP Pavilion Elite m9100 series PC is geared more towards people that use the PC as an entertainment device, with 4GB of memory, an Intel Quad CoreT processor, and up to 1TB of optional storage. There’s no mention of high-def, but the system starts at $1,159.
For media masters, the HP Pavilion Media Center m8330f PC (starts at $959) uses an AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core Processor and boasts the ability to help consumers do everything and anything with recorded and live TV, movies, music, photos and videos.
Photo geeks have the HP Pavilion a6330f PC (starts at $649), which can store up to 218,000 photos and comes with a slew of photo software.
All the above, plus two new monitors, the w2408h ($499) and the w2207h ($349), are expected to start shipping in February.
