LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today unveiled fresh, new offerings, including the world's first display with integrated Beats Audio, the HP ENVY 27-inch IPS Monitor; HP's most affordable touch notebook PC ever, the HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook; and a pocket-sized storage device for wireless content streaming, the HP Pocket Playlist.
First standalone monitor with Beats Audio
The HP ENVY 27-inch IPS Monitor with Beats Audio has the power to perform and the looks to wow. Developed collaboratively with Beats by Dr. Dre, it provides a unique and immersive audiovisual experience. Built-in speakers angled upward deliver great midrange and high frequencies, with equally rich bass. The studio-quality sound on the HP ENVY 27 monitor allows consumers to hear music the way the artists intended.
The In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel provides a viewing angle of 178 degrees horizontally and vertically so friends can enjoy entertainment content without having to crowd in front of the display. Edge-to-edge glass, a super-slim design (13.95 mm thin at top) and a narrow aluminum base make the display look great in a home or office. Unique audio aspects, including a conveniently located headphone jack, subwoofer and digital audio output are included.
Thin and light notebook PCs for everyone
The HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook and the new HP Pavilion Sleekbook provide affordable performance in a thin and light package. Powered by an AMD A-Series APU, the newest HP Sleekbooks feature a 15.6-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) display;(1) up to 1 terabyte of storage for apps, movies, music, photos, documents and more;(2) Dolby Advanced Audio; a removable battery; and a numeric keyboard for increased productivity.
A full array of ports including HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 provide fast connections to mobile devices and accessories.
The HP Sleekbooks include HP TrueVision HD Webcams(3) and HP MyRoom for video calling and sharing photos a private virtual room. Optional AMD Radeon discrete graphics on select models enhance the gaming experience and improve video creation and playback.
The HP Sleekbooks also feature exclusive HP innovations, including HP CoolSense, which adjusts cooling levels according to a customer's personal preferences and results in a noticeably cooler PC, and HP ProtectSmart, which helps prevent file loss in case of a bump. HP Connected Photo powered by Snapfish by HP(4) and HP Connected Music powered by Meridian allow users to access their favorite photos and music seamlessly.(5)
These new HP Sleekbooks join the 14-inch and 15.6-inch HP Sleekbooks announced on Sept. 20.
Breakthrough entertainment device
The HP Pocket Playlist goes beyond what's expected from portable media storage and entertainment. With no internet connection required while streaming and no need for a data plan, this innovative portable device streams unencrypted content -- movies, music, TV shows and photos -- to up to five mobile devices at the same time.(6) This premium entertainment device acts like a home DVR but is smaller and lighter than the average smartphone, making it easy to take anywhere.
The HP Pocket Playlist comes with a one-month subscription to PlayLater,(7) a new DVR app for online content. This app allows prerecording of videos from more than 50 online websites for playback later without an internet connection.(8) The device holds up to 16 full-length movies, 7,600 songs or 10,000 photos, and plays to most Wi-Fi enabled Android, Windows® and iOS mobile devices.(6,9)
Innovative consumer and business monitors
The HP Pavilion IPS LED Backlit Monitor series (models 20xi, 21xi, 23xi, 25xi, and 27xi) brings premium-quality IPS technology to everyday computing at affordable prices. With upgraded 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles, these displays deliver clear, vivid images across the ultrawide viewing spectrum. The monitors also are upgraded with a thinner HP industrial design, and connectivity that covers digital, multimedia and analog options. With unique HP features such as controllable power-saving modes and customizable screen settings with integrated HP My Display software, consumers can partition the screen so that multiple application windows can be open at the same time, while also saving user-preferred settings for easy startup.
The HP x2401 24-inch LED Backlit Monitor is a microthin monitor with MVA technology that produces wide viewing angles for vivid, consistent color. The monitor features an adjustable easel stand and L-connectors to keep cables in the back for a clean look, and includes DP/HDMI connectivity and a VESA mount. It has a brushed metal finish and is ideal for customers who value design innovation.
The HP U160 15.6-inch LED Backlit Display is 1.02 inches thin and made for the on-the-go business professionals who need a convenient, portable monitor for productivity. The monitor connects to any notebook with a USB port and sets up and folds down in a snap. The "flip and fold" stand deploys the monitor quickly and helps protect it while stored, making it ideal for mobility. Designed to share content and provide extra screen real estate, the monitor works with a single cable, allowing customers to easily work at the office or in a hotel room, restaurant, lobby or public meeting space.
The HP ProDisplay Series (available in 18.5-inch, 20-inch and 21.5-inch models) gives the everyday business display an upgrade. Practical, reliable and designed with energy efficiency in mind, this display has excellent front-of-screen performance for crisp clear text and images and more screen room to roam. A sculpted, soft black slender form almost vanishes into the background and keeps the vibrant images displayed on the LED backlit panel the main focus.
The HP ZR2330w IPS LED Backlit Display offers business-class performance at a budget-friendly price. IPS technology delivers brilliant color from almost any angle, and because this monitor is equipped with advanced connectivity, this display is perfect for multiscreen setups. VGA, DVI and DisplayPort inputs work with legacy and new devices while the integrated USB hub keeps peripherals close at hand. Flexible height, tilt, swivel and pivot adjustments offer true ergonomic benefits to customers so they can be productive throughout the day.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com...

The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging.

Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...
