Among those is the HP Envy 27-inch IPS Monitor with Beats Audio
Hewlett-Packard (HP) has introduced nine new products today in Las Vegas, where the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is taking place this week.
The top announcement on that list is the new
HP Envy 27-inch IPS Monitor with Beats Audio
, which is the company's first display with integrated Beats Audio. The PC is based on a unique audio experience with midrange/high frequencies and rich bass. It runs $499 and will be available February 3.
Next up are two new additions to the Sleekbook family: the
HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook
HP Pavilion Sleekbook
. They feature an AMD A-Series APU, a 15.6-inch display, up to 1TB of storage, HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. The Pavilion Sleekbook will be available January 13 for $479.99 and the Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook will be available February 3 for $649.99.
HP Pocket Playlist
is a portable streaming device that allows users to stream music, movies, TV and photos to as many as five mobile devices at the same time. It doesn't require an Internet connection or data plan, but acts as a smaller DVR. It holds up to 16 full-length movies, 10,000 photos or 7,600 songs. It will be available February 15 for $129.
The remaining five products are monitors, including the
HP Pavilion IPS LED Backlit Monitor
(January 20 from $129.99-$339.99), the
HP x2401 24-inch LED Backlit Monitor
HP U160 15.6-inch LED Backlit Display
(January for $139), the
HP ProDisplay Series
(February from $129-$179)and the
HP ZR2330w IPS Backlit Display
(January for $259).
HP is releasing new products in hopes of digging itself out of the tough spot it has been in.
The company's December 10-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stated that the company is currently evaluating "the potential disposition of assets and businesses" that are
no longer helping them meet objectives
HP's former CEO Leo Apotheker announced that the company was
abandoning its webOS platform and TouchPad tablets
for good. It had acquired the webOS platform from Palm for $1.2 billion USD only a year previous. That same month,
HP planned to
sell off its Personal Systems Group (PSG)
, which is responsible for consumer and business PCs.
Later, it was announced that HP was
leaning more toward a spin-off PC business
than a sale.
When current CEO Meg Whitman stepped up to the plate shortly after those baffling announcements, HP ended up not selling its PC unit or having a spin-off. Whitman
kept the PC business in-house
More recently, HP alleged that HP subsidiary
Autonomy's former owners committed approximately
$5B USD in accounting "improprieties"
, which they suggest amount to fraud. In November 2012, it was reported that HP would
take an $
8.8 billion hit
due to "accounting improprieties."

I'm sure it's been crippled with some DRM nonsense that prevents you from making legal copies and legal usage of your movies and music, just like iTunes and nearly all other products on the market do. No Thanks! Consumers are guilty until proven innocent, and are all criminals in the eyes of MPAA and RIAA.
On top of that, I bet it has taken the iToy approach to batteries, using a sealed device with a non-serviceable battery. Use it for 3 years until the battery stops holding a charge, then toss it in the trash. My Sony Discman from 1991 still works perfectly today and I still use it because it takes normal AA batteries. Why can't the industry can't come up with a standard for modern li-ion rechargeable batteries that are user-replaceable?? Why do all modern portable devices have in-built obsolescence, in the form of a non-replaceable proprietary battery??
If by some miracle, it isn't DRM-crippled, and doesn't have a non-serviceable battery, it could indeed be an interesting product.
But I'm not holding my breath.
