HP Pavilion HPE h8, p7, Slimline s5 arrive

HP helped wrap up a week's worth of introductions by rolling out three new Pavilion desktops. The more gamer-oriented HPE h8, mainstream p7, and Slimline s5 all get redesigned looks, carrying a much cleaner and minimalist look that HP suggests would work as much for a home theater as a desk. All have accordingly moved to the most recent processors, topping out with AMD Phenom II and Intel Core i7 chips in the h8.

Some get the option of Beats Audio processing, and all have access to a newer LinkUp feature. The trick gives users a relatively simple way to get at the apps and media from a paired notebook without requiring some of the usual steps.

The h8 like its predecessor has picks of dedicated graphics from AMD or NVIDIA, with some of the video cards supporting up to three screens. The s5 despite being half the size is seen as an in-between PC upgradable to large hard drives and either AMD or Intel processors, and the p7 seves as the starting point with basic AMD and Intel chips as well as integrated-only video.

Prices start out at as little as $299 for the p7 and move up to $329 and $599 for the Slimline s5 and HPE h8. Buyers can order the h8 and p7 on May 18 but will have to wait three weeks to get the s5 on June 15.
