Type & Touch

HP Pavilion dv6

HP was one of the first PC manufacturers to embrace touch interaction through their Touch Smart All-In-One desktops, and today they showed a further desire to integrate it in notebooks as well. Revamped with a new etched metal casing option similar to the HP Envy, the dv6 is clearly meant to serve as multimedia machine. The screen measures 15.6, and has the option to be to upgraded to a multi-touch display. That’s an interesting combination, though admittedly we’re not too sure what it will feel like reaching over the keyboard to swipe around using fingers. Other niceties on board include a finger print reader with HP simple pass for one touch security, and HP QuickWeb for browsing the web without fully booting up the machine.
