The launch of the new Pavilion DV5000 series heralds HP’s first mobile notebook in South Africa specifically designed for consumers.
“The DV5000 is a multi-media powerhouse with all the features you’d expect from a desktop PC in a sleek, affordable laptop that offers fast, reliable performance – coupled with award-winning support and value beyond the competition,” says Damien Durrant, HP’s Notebook Product Manager.
“It’s the perfect combination of features for work, study and play in the convenience of a notebook PC,” says Durrant. HP consumer laptops come with a full year of support. “Offering more complete customer support is one way HP provides consumers with the best customer experience possible,” he says.
The HP Pavilion DV5000 notebook is a robust, versatile solution for the growing family. “It delivers enhanced performance for students and outstanding media capabilities for digital photography and entertainment on the go,” says Durrant.
“Today, new technologies like Intel’s Dual core technology offer outstanding mobile performance and use lower power,” adds Durrant.
In a sleek and sexy, well-designed chassis, the DV5000 is an instant entertainment computer with the help of a vibrant 15.4-inch widescreen display with high resolution BrightView screen for rich colour and high-definition detail. HP’s QuickPlay allows the laptop to jump to life at the touch of a button so users can watch movies and video clips, get digital photo’s and listen to music CD’s in seconds, without having to turn on the laptop first.
The DV5000’s integrated Altec Lansing speakers emit strong enough audio to enjoy a movie without headphones. There's a FireWire port too, for capturing video, plus three USB ports and an Intel a/g Wi-Fi radio. An optional HP Remote Control turns the DV5000 into an entertainment centre, enabling users to control CDs and DVDs like any other media player.
The DV5000 boasts a dual-layer DVD burner and optional Lightscribe DVD±RW/R drive. “LightScribe Direct Disc Labelling let’s you create custom, silkscreen-quality, laser-etched CD and DVD labels by burning the image or label onto the top of the disk,” says Durrant.
“As a leader in consumer PCs, HP has a long history of working with our partners to provide consumers with the very latest in mobile computing technologies,” concludes Durrant.
