HP has unleashed a torrent of updated models across its notebook and netbook range, expanding by some fourteen portables in total.

These include the Envy 17 inch and 14 inch, driven by high-spec Intel processors, discrete Radeon HD 5830 graphics, and up to 8GB of memory on board.

These notebooks also boast goodies such as a backlit keyboard, a slot-loading optical drive, and an HD webcam.

A number of new Pavilion notebooks are set to emerge, including the compact DM4 (bound to be popular with old Quake vets) which features a sleek brushed aluminium finish.

The DM4 is just 1 inch thick, weighs just over 4 pounds, and comes with a 14 inch display, fingerprint reader, and an estimated six hours plus battery life.

The DV5, DV6 and DV7 are more about the multimedia experience. The top of the line DV7 will feature Altec Lansing speakers, an HP triple bass subwoofer, and a “superb” virtual surround experience.

It will also have Corel Paintshop Photo Pro X3 and VideoStudio Pro X3 bundled.

Prices run across a large range, with the DM4 weighing in at £699, and the Envy 17 running up to £1299.

Expect these beasts to be unleashed come July.
