HP unveiled 13 new notebook models today, including a sleek, ultra-light Tablet PC, the new ultra-thin HP Compaq 2710p Notebook PC. Here is more info on the notebook:
Total productivity--totally cool
Starting at only 3.6 lbs /1.65 kg and 1.11 in/28.2 mm thin, the HP Compaq 2710p Notebook PC offers you the functionality of an ultra-light notebook plus the flexibility of an ultra-slim tablet.
Unique widescreen display and writing surface
A 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen Illumi-Lite display15 provides you with a slimmer and lighter notebook PC that is more energy efficient than a notebook with traditional LCD backlighting. The chemically-strengthened glass top will not wear down with repetitive use, and resists the effects of "pooling". The optional outdoor view display delivers a significantly better display appearance when working in bright light conditions.
Redefining what you can do on the go
With a dual-microphone array and optional integrated camera, enjoy video and web conferencing, video-enhanced instant messaging, and VoIP,4 and capture business card images that automatically convert to text in your favorite contact application. Use the HP 2700 Ultra-Slim Expansion Base with integrated DVD+/-RW drive3 as a docking station in the office, or take it with you while on the go. Across the street or across the country, stay connected in more places with HP Broadband Wireless.4 You also have the flexibility to add HP Broadband Wireless at a later date.
