Notebooks and netbook

HP has rolled out its Spring 2011 Consumer PC collection in the States. The key machines: a revamped Mini 210 netbook and new Pavilion dv4 and Envy 14 notebooks.

The Envy 14 gets Intel's second-generation Core i processors - the Sandy Bridge platform - plus USB 3.0 and CoolSense, HP's name for a dynamic clocking system.

The plastic-clad dv4 has CoolSense too and, like the Envy, has a 14in display.

The 210 has been slimmed down to under an inch thick, yet gained Beats Audio tech. It also incorporates HP QuickWeb 3.0, a fast-boot secondary OS for net access and media playback.

HP has yet to publish full specs for the machines, two of which - the Mini 210 and the Envy 14 - won't be out until June. The dv4 is out on 18 May, but so far, that's only a US launch date - HP hasn't said when these machines will appear over here. ®
