Building foundations with Jean Nouvel and Frank Gehry
Unashamedly high-tech and powerful, this aluminium-finished design (that comes with a 36.8cm (14.5") or 43.9cm (17.3") display) is all about the luxury specs. Part entertainment system part mobile work device, it comes with the seriously speedy Intel® Core™ processor, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory and an HD low-light webcam. It also offers an optimal audio experience with integrated Beats Audio™ that aims to recreate studio sound.
More than just a notebook, this is a mobile entertainment system. Cosmetically the dv6 is about bold colours and tactile finishes. On the inside, there are a number of performance-enhancing features including AltecLansing speakers (which are like Dolby advanced audio), a high-definition screen, plus TrueVision webcam and digital mics for a multi-media experience.
A take everywhere companion available in six designs, HP's lightweight notebook is one of their skinniest models yet. While it's certainly compact, it's also a hard-working piece of kit. With up to eight hours of battery life* for all-day mobility, it has pre-installed HP QuickWeb software, granting the user instant web access for that quick email check without the full boot-up.
*Battery life will vary by usage and configuration.
This is the second digital clutch that New York fashion designer Vivienne Tam has created for HP. Tam has once again looked to the East for inspiration for this 'Butterfly Lovers' design, inspired by a Chinese love story. Merging the high-tech with high fashion, its butterfly-adorned case elevates the typical notebook aesthetic with a pale gold background inside and out. Looks aside, like the other models in the Mini family, it's also lightweight and high-speed.
Accompanying the launch of the new notebooks, seasoned photographer Dave Hogan shot HP's latest ad campaign, placing its new notebooks into fantasy celebrity scenarios. Here, we take a look behind the scenes of the Paparazzi campaign in the making.
