HP has expanded its HDX range of notebooks with the addition of two “Premium” models aimed at multimedia junkies with an eye for style.

The HDX16 has an ample 16in, 1366 x 768 display, while the HDX18 has a larger, 18.4in display with a 'full HD' 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Both models incorporate Intel’s 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo P8500 CPU and Nvidia’s GeForce 9600M graphics chip. Users have 4GB of DDR 2 memory to play with on both laptops, but while the HDX18 has a spacious 500GB of storage its sibling only comes with a 320GB hard drive.

The HDX18 also has the advantage of a Blu-ray combo drive, whereas HDX16 buyers have to make do with a plain old DVD burner.

Wi-Fi connectivity is included, of course, but the addition of Bluetooth is an added treat on both machines. A fingerprint reader’s featured to keep your data safe - unless you work for the Yakuza - and a webcam’s been secreted inside the screen bezel of each laptop too.

Pretty much everything else you could want features in the duo, including a five-in-one memory card reader.

Both HP HDX Premium laptops will be available next month, with the HDX16 set to cost £1000 ($1900/€1250) and the HDX18 expected to set you back around £1200 ($2100/€1500).
