HP unveiled new additions to its home entertainment PC line, including the first HP Media Center notebook PC, and enhanced versions of its HP Media Center desktop PCs. The offerings are designed to remove the hassle from digital entertainment, making it easy to enjoy photos, music and movies.

The HP Media Center zd7000 notebook with widescreen is a high-performance, wireless, notebook PC.  It integrates digital entertainment, photography, and Internet computing into a desktop design including an expanded keyboard with separate numeric keypad.

The HP Media Center zd7000 notebook features an Intel Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology ranging up to 3.2-gigahertz and an 800-megahertz system bus for improved responsiveness and performance.  It also contains up to 2 gigabytes DDR SDRAM memory; up to an 80-gigabyte 5,400 r.p.m. hard drive; and optional DVD+RW/CD-RW combo drives available on configure-to-order models.

The new HP Media Center m300 Photosmart desktop PC offers entertainment features such as FM radio reception, an integrated camera dock, (sold separately), and the ability to print directly from the remote control. It additionally offers a single software application for simplified organization, editing, and sharing of digital photos, and Internet music direct from MusicMatch.

The HP Media Center m300 PC series includes three retail models: the HP Media Center m390n, m380n, and m370n, as well as customized models available from retailers. HP Media Center m300 PCs feature Intel Pentium 4 processors with Hyper-Threading technology up to 3.2 gigahertz, and up to 1.5-gigabytes DDR SDRAM memory as well as  hard drives as large as 250-gigabytes.

Both the HP Media Center zd7000 notebook and HP Media Center m300 desktop PC series feature Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 software.

The HP Media Center zd7000 has an estimated U.S. price starting at $1,799 (after a $100 mail-in rebate). The estimated  prices for pre-configured HP Media Center PC m300n models run between $1,499 and $1,999, while configure-to-order PCs can be purchased for as low as $999.  The m300 series are expected to be available after October 5.
