HP goes industrial with home PCs

New desktop PC models designed to appeal those with a digital lifestyle

HP has produced a range of consumer PCs in what it is calling an "industrial" style, to appeal to home users.

The computer maker said it had produced the PCs, in both black and silver cases, to appeal to users who built their lifestyle around digital content, such as photos, movies and music. The range, encompassing HP Pavilion, Compaq Presario and HP Media Center-branded PCs, will range between $999 for a Compaq Presario SR5000 series with 17-inch LCD, through to $1399 for a HP Pavilion a6000 series with a 19-inch LCD.

The Media Center offering, the HP Pavilion m8000a with 17-inch LCD, starts at $1999.

The two new PCs will ship with HP printers as standard. Meanwhile, the monitors on all three models will feature Gadget Track, allowing users to attache photos, notes and cards in addition to affixing digital gadgets, such as MP3 players, to their monitor.
