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 and the 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.

The 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, the 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.

Before that, 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."

Why are 120 pixels so important? Because models having them exist? 4:3 is less wide than 16:10, did that make 4:3 superior to 16:10?

Don't bring aspect ratios into this because it doesn't really have anything to do with resolution... a 1600x900 grid has more real estate than a 160x100 grid.

That computers are not slightly different than televisions aspect-wise means less problems with content from one being distorted or cut off on the other for presentations and such. It's just the nature of the market to be uniform in this regard.

Vertical space matters when it comes to things like web browsing and applications. This is why 16:10 is better for most desktop monitors. The exception are 27" 2560x1440 monitors, those have so many vertical pixels that it works out great even at 16:9.

The most important piece of information, resolution, is missing though. I haven't found those specs anywhere yet. At this price and with gimmicks like Beats audio I'm guessing it is only a 1080p display, not 1440p. Meh.
