Endless Entertainment and Fun

With everything-in-one-entertainment, the possibilities of fun are endless. An HDMI 1.3 port can connect your notebook PC to an external monitor or HD TV to record your favorite TV shows, view your digital camera photos with friends, listen to music, or host an impromptu karaoke contest. QuickPlay software allows one-click access to entertainment. You'll have plenty of format options available when you add Blu-ray ROM / DVD writer. You'll get extra storage space for your files when you're able to read Blu-ray discs and read HD DVD discs and still have access and the ability to read/write to your older files already stored on traditional DVDs and CDs. A built-in TV tuner is optional, but you'll get a remote control, premium audio, and dual headphone jacks so that a friend can listen on their own set of headphones. Having built-in Wi-Fi increases your ability to join friends at your favorite hang outs. Face-to-face chatting is easier with a built-in low-light webcam and digital microphones. Have fun exploring your favorite hang outs online.

Reliable Experiences

When you're having fun, you'll rest easy knowing that this high-quality PC has built-in HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection to automatically detect if your notebook has been dropped and locks your hard drive to protect your data. Extra security doesn't have to be complicated - simplified password management with an integrated fingerprint reader is optional. With all the discs you'll be burning, having the ability to design/print your own silkscreen-quality DVD and CD labels with LightScribe is an option you'll want to add.
