Along with all the new business machines, HP also announced their updated consumer machines. The new machines include three new Pavilion desktop machines, as well as a new range of configurations using the new CPUs.
First off, the new Pavilion machines. There are three of them, the P6700, (starting price: $300), the S5700 (starting price: $330), and finally the HPE-500 (starting price: $600). All of them can be configured as you like, as always depending on how much you want to spend. All of the new desktop models feature “Beats Audio,” which has gained popularity after HP included it in the Envy line.
Since HP didn’t really supply an easy to read press release, I’ll break it down for you; the P6700 supports the Intel Pentium E5700 to the AMD II 445 processor, the S5700 will run anything from the Athlon II 260 up to the Phenom II 511, and finally the HPE-500 will run up to the Phenom II 1045T with Radeon HD 6770 graphics. It all depends on how much you want to spend on that new PC.
