Hewlett-Packard (HP) has launched its new stylish consumer desktop, the HP Pavilion p6000 PC, India. Priced at Rs 29,990, the HP Pavilion p6000 PC, comes with features like a Backlit OSD, aqua-white LED indication and EasyClip.
The HP Pavilion p6000 PC is powered by Intel Core2 Duo Processor or AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core Processor.
The desktop supports Microsoft Windows Vista Basic/Home Premium and provides high storage expansion in a tool-free design with HP Pocket Media Drive Bay.
The HP Pavilion p6000 PC is available with different storage capabilities, such as 1024MB/2048MB/3072MB, the company has said.
Another feature of the HP Pavilion p6000 PC is its CD/DVD burner design that enables users to edit photos and videos easily.
Other technical specifications of the HP Pavilion p6000 PC laptop include integrated high definition audio, up to 7.1 Surround Sound Ready, 15-in-1 card reader, and built-in front I/O – microphone, headphones, and 2 USB ports.
The HP Pavilion p6000 has 320GB/ 500GB 3G Serial ATA hard drive at 7200RPM.
Ketan Patel, HP India’s country category manager, said, “The Pavilion p6000 PC encapsulates digital entertainment, opening doors for the family to live it up – with photographs, music, video and surfing, all rolled into one. This desktop PC is an ‘Eye Candy’ that also has cutting-edge features and functionalities.”
The HP Pavilion p6000 is available in piano black with chrome hints.
Meanwhile, HP has announced that it will axe 6400 jobs in 2010. The jobs will be cut mainly from Plano, Texas-based Electronic Data Systems that was acquired by HP in 2008.
The move followed HP’s poor performance in the first quarter of 2009, in the wake of a sluggish PC market. Net revenues fell from $2.1 billion in 2008 to $1.7 billion in 2009.
Worse, HP is finding itself sandwiched between Apple’s Macs at the top and Acer snapping at its heels, aiming for HP’s share in the dwindling PC market.
