Having finally introduced its popular Pavilion range of notebooks and desktops to the Middle East late last year, HP has not wasted much time in extending it. This month it has announced the availability across the Middle East of two new notebook series, a desktop PC with Wi-Fi support as well as widescreen displays and support for the Athlon 64 processor from AMD. The Pavilion range has been available in the US and Europe since the mid-1990s, HP said last year that the decision to make it available in the Middle East was a sign of the market’s growing maturity. As well as the two desktops and two notebooks introduced last year, users can now buy HP’s new Pavilion desktop PC with integrated 802.11b/g support, the latest in Wi-Fi support. This allows users to connect the technology to other Wi-Fi-enabled devices or set up a home network. Also new in the PC range is support for the latest AMD Athlon 64-bit processor, which offers supeior performance on demanding applications such as gaming. HP was one of the first vendors to commit to supporting the processor, which competes with Intel’s Pentium 4 processor. On the notebook side, HP is launching two entire series in the Middle East, beefing up its consumer offering in the region considerably. The zx5000 and the widescreen zv5000 series both feature Intel Pentium 4 processors with hyper-threading support. The models are aimed at multimedia and gaming users, with digital imaging and entertainment features on all models.
