HP announced the Pavilion dm4 and Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition thin and light notebooks, both of which offer the latest Intel Core processors, Beats Audio and a 14-inch high-definition (HD) LED display for a rich multimedia experience. The HP Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition delivers the ultimate listening experience and features the signature black-and-red Beats Audio design. The standard Pavilion dm4 is available in brushed aluminum dark umber or steel gray metal finish with optional backlit keyboard.
Weighing less than 4.5 pounds and offering up to 7 hours of battery life, both HP Pavilion dm4 models feature a 1-inch profile in the front and offer optional AMD Radeon HD discrete graphics.
With the added subwoofer and Beats Audio, the Pavilion dm4 offers a full audio experience. The notebook also includes innovations such as HP TrueVision HD Webcam, HP CoolSense and HP SimplePass with fingerprint reader for storing passwords in one place.
The sleek HP Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition reflects the signature Beats black-and-red design. The black metal exterior features a red Beats logo and a striking black keyboard that is backlit in red. The soft-touch surface on the palm rest provides a smooth, silk-like tactile experience.
