When did I first learn about the HP P5 and HP P6?
Happy birthday HP!
This year we’re celebrating your 5th anniversary with the HP PowerBook G5 and P6, the first to use HP’s patented dual-core PowerPC chips.
The HP P4/P5 and PowerPC 486-powered G5s are available today, and the P6s are also arriving today.
The P5s come in two different colors and feature a glossy aluminum back.
The company says the new P5 will be available in November and the new HP P7 in December.
The HP PowerBooks are also available in the U.S. today.
A special variant of the P5 is also coming to Europe.
The PowerBook 5300G and PowerBook 5050G both use a dual-cores Intel Core i5-4570 2.7GHz processor and are available for around $1,100.
We’ve already had the chance to try the P7 and the G5, and both of them are packing a 10-inch screen.
The G5 will also be available with a 10.1-inch display, which should be pretty useful for a laptop with a 12-inch IPS display.
We haven’t tested the G6 yet, but its specs look similar to the HP 5300 and HP 5050, with the exception of the dual-Cores and the extra RAM.
The new G5 is available with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB HDD.
The latest HP Powerbooks also support Nvidia GeForce graphics, and there’s also a 256GB SSD.
