The biggest PC maker in Australia, Hewlett Packard,  has announced its new flagship Pavilion lineup, which are aimed at everything from “enjoying music, to playing games, working on the move, to enabling intuitive touch experiences, that work together to present a seamless connected experience.”

The dv6 and dv7 (pictured), which are at the centerpiece of the new range, come with boosted power, installed with second-generation Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors and optional AMD Radeon graphics.

The new HP’s are multimedia dreamboats making them ideal for movie, music buffs or gaming enthusiasts. And they also look the part, coming in funky colours and sassy designs.

The dv7 will set you back $1799 and the dv6, $999, available  from next month, and comes in dark Umber metal finish.

The other models in the new series include the Pavilion dv4 at $999,  which also offers a full multimedia experience and “expresses full PC functionality and performance with up to second-generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors,” say its makers.

Similar to the dv6 and 7  it comes with all powerful AMD RadeonT 6750M graphics on its 14.0-inch screen.

This model is also exceptionally slim and sleek – measuring just 1.11″ and is lightweight at around 2.2-kilos and has a six-cell battery that provides up to 6 hours of battery life.

It also comes with a unique Espresso Black lattice imprint finish.

The Pavilion suite now offers the ultimate affordable device but without compromising on functionality, with its g6 for just $599.


It has in built Intel CoreTM i3 and i5 processors, and comes in Charcoal grey and Sonoma red.  It also includes a HD BrightView display, with Altec Lansing speakers and SRS Premium Audio for enjoying ultimate audio and video experience.

 “Five years ago the personal computer was the centre of one’s connected life, while today people are at the centre and their technology – across smartphones, PCs and cloud services – needs to provide seamless connectivity to what is important to them,” says Darren Needham-Walker, Director of Marketing, Personal Systems, HP.

“Technology plays a vital role in how people explore, develop and enable their passions,” he added.
