HP Pioneers Enterprise Print Technology that Combines Manageability Features, Cost Savings

HP today unveiled the industry’s first inkjet devices designed to meet the complex needs of today’s large businesses. 

The HP Officejet Enterprise Color MFP X585 and HP Officejet Enterprise Color X555 are powered by HP PageWide Technology, 
which takes proven, advanced commercial printing technologies and scales them to a new class of enterprise printers. The HP 
Officejet Enterprise series devices are enterprise ready with tested durability(1) to handle the rigorous printing demands of 
enterprise businesses—printing at twice the speed(2) and at up to half the cost per page(3) of lasers.   

“Never before has an ink-based device been fully capable of meeting the performance requirements that large organizations demand,” 
said Dion Weisler, executive vice president, Printing and Personal Systems, HP. “CIOs and IT decision makers can be confident that 
the HP Officejet Enterprise series provides employees exceptional enterprise-grade security, fleet management and mobile printing 
options along with the fastest speed(2) and lowest total cost of ownership.”(3)

These devices come fully loaded with enterprise functionality and a familiar IT experience, including the same user interface as 12 
million HP enterprise LaserJet printers. In addition, they support the latest HP LaserJet FutureSmart firmware and HP Open Extensibility 
Platform (OXP) so that enterprise software and solutions—including HP Access Control and HP Capture & Route—can be easily accessed 
through one button on the device. 

The series also includes a scan-optimized HP Flow bundle, providing an on-ramp to the digitized world with faster and more accurate 
enterprise-grade scanning and document processing that speed the transition from a paper to digital office. 

Building on the success of the HP Officejet Pro X devices with small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises, 
the HP Officejet Enterprise series scales HP PageWide Technology to expand choice for enterprise customers. In fact, more than 60 
billion pages have been printed using HP PageWide Technology.(4) In Managed Print Services environments, these devices deliver 
greater cost savings with the lowest cost per page in color,(5) and provides spot or accent color mode, which includes a small logo or 
line of hyperlink text, at the same price as black-and-white prints. 

The HP Officejet Enterprise series prints at up to 72 pages per minute in general office mode, which is up to twice as fast as in-class 
competitive printers.(2) In addition, this series requires  up to 84 percent less power while printing(6) and up to 25 percent less power by 
ENERGY STAR® TEC method(7) than competing laser printers.

Pricing and availability(8)

The HP Officejet Enterprise Color MFP X585 and HP Officejet Enterprise Color X555 are expected to be available worldwide on April 1. 
The HP Officejet Enterprise Color MFP X585 pricing options range between $1,999 and $2,799, while the HP X555 pricing options 
range between $749 and $1,199.

HP Delivers Increased Mobility, Simplified Printing to SMBs

HP today announced new mobile print capabilities designed to help small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) increase productivity so they 
can better focus on their business needs. 

The newest addition to the world’s best-selling multifunction laser printer (MFP) family,(1) the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476 comes 
equipped with simple, secured mobile print solutions that give SMB users an intuitive way to print or access content—virtually anytime, 
anywhere and from almost any device.   

The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476 meets Mopria global certification standards for delivering simple wireless printing from smartphones, 
tablets and other mobile devices. The MFP also offers productivity and workflow solutions—like access to cloud business applications such 
as HP Flow CM Professional,(2) Box and Google Drive. These embedded applications, along with single-pass, two-sided scanning, 
enable users to accelerate efficiency in a hybrid paper-and-digital world. 

As IT administrators look to increase office productivity while keeping costs at a reasonable level, the Lightweight Directory Access 
Protocol (LDAP) feature acts as an access control for guests, so that IT can set up user restrictions for scan, fax or copy functions. 

Current research indicates that by 2015, 41 percent of business smartphone users and 43 percent of business tablet users will print from 
their mobile devices.(3) HP’s lineup of devices for SMBs and enterprises simplifies the way customers can print through near-field 
communications (NFC) touch-to-print capabilities,(4) wireless direct printing, HP ePrint(5) and HP AirPrint.(6) 

“The expectation of today’s business customer is to print securely from any location or device,” said George Brasher, vice president and 
general manager, Worldwide Laser Printer Business, HP. “HP remains committed to delivering simple, secured mobile print solutions 
aimed to help customers solve the mobility challenge of working while in the office or on the go. With the addition of these new 
enterprise-grade mobility offerings, HP is helping SMBs increase productivity and workflow solutions, allowing them to be more 
productive in their businesses.”

Celebrating a legacy of firsts in mobile print innovation 
HP created the mobile print category with HP ePrint, the industry’s first mobile print enablement working with any email capable device. 
Later, HP launched the first AirPrint-supported printers, enabling the first embedded print solution for iOS devices. HP also was the first to 
offer mobile printing accessories that enabled mobile printing for older printers. 

Today’s launch continues the tradition of firsts, as the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476 is the industry’s first Mopria-certified printer, 
supporting embedded print for Android-based devices.

HP Helps Simplify Mobile Printing

HP today announced secured mobile print solutions that make it easier for business customers to print whenever and wherever they 
need. 

HP also announced new single-function printers, multifunction printers (MFPs), scanners and solutions that streamline customers’ 
digital and paper processes and increase business productivity.

The proliferation of data created by a growing mobile workforce is driving organizations to rethink how they conduct business and 
manage their information. HP addresses this challenge with a “New Style of IT.” This includes delivering business printing technologies 
that accelerate productivity in a hybrid paper-and-digital world.

“Organizations need to adapt quickly to the changing landscape of information technology, which includes dealing with the vast amounts of 
data and processes created by a growing mobile workforce,” said Pradeep Jotwani, senior vice president, LaserJet and Enterprise Solutions, 
HP. “New innovations and an updated LaserJet printing portfolio help improve customers’ mobile print experience and transform the

Simple and more secured mobile printing

HP Autonomy Delivers Proven and Secure Enterprise-grade Alternative to Consumer File Sharing Services

 HP Autonomy today announced Autonomy LinkSite, a hybrid cloud solution that integrates HP Autonomy WorkSite, an industry-leading 
on-premises document and email management system with HP Flow CM, HP’s public cloud file sharing and collaboration service.

This solution enables organizations to securely share and collaborate on files in the cloud with colleagues, customers and business partners 
while maintaining visibility to, and governance of, content from within Autonomy WorkSite.

New file sharing services have made it easy for consumers to access and synchronize their content at any time, from anywhere and on 
any device; the expectation has grown among employees that they should find the same user experience in the workplace.

Corporate users face challenges when sharing large files with coworkers, customers and partners. Document collaboration by email 
creates version-control confusion, causes strain on servers and increases storage costs. This wastes time, stifles collaboration and 
often prompts organizations to restrict sending files via email.

Consumer file sharing services offer an easy-to-use alternative, but create another silo of content, disconnected from the internal 
content management infrastructure. This presents significant challenges to properly securing and governing information in the cloud, 
exposing companies to increased risk, rendering these services largely unsuitable for the enterprise environment.

Autonomy LinkSite combines an enterprise-grade document and email management system with the ease of use and simplicity of a 
consumer solution. It provides the enterprise with a single, integrated, user-friendly tool for external file sharing and collaboration. 
Autonomy LinkSite enables a single file or an entire project folder to be shared in the cloud with internal and external collaborators, 
directly from the Autonomy WorkSite application. Benefits include:

    Team collaboration beyond the firewall: Autonomy LinkSite extends the traditional workspace context from Autonomy WorkSite into the 
cloud. This enables users to share files securely and collaborate with individuals both inside and outside the firewall. Files may be 
password protected and set to expire in a specified timeframe, enhancing content security.
    Single point of access: Autonomy WorkSite users have access to all their files, whether stored within the enterprise content 
management system or shared externally, through a single interface. This allows them to view, edit, share and search both 
cloud-based and on-premises content from one place, helping them save time and improve productivity.
    Full device synchronization: Files shared via Autonomy LinkSite are synchronized across all employee devices, and can be accessed 
through any web browser, letting users work how and when they need to.
    Seamless extension of enterprise security, authorization and audit to the cloud: Content uploaded to the cloud with Autonomy LinkSite 
inherits all security properties set in Autonomy WorkSite, and all actions taken on content in the cloud are reported via the Autonomy 
Worksite audit trail, providing a seamless extension of enterprise security and governance to the cloud.
    Better than consumer-grade ease of use: Autonomy LinkSite can automatically suggest collaboration partners for any project, based 
on analysis of email communications, saving users time and hassle. Unified search across both cloud and on-premises repositories, 
combined with the ability to view cloud-based file shares from inside the native Autonomy WorkSite application, provides ease of use 
and efficiency not possible with current, disconnected file sharing systems.

“For the first time, organizations no longer have to turn a blind eye to continued use of undocumented consumer file sharing services,” said 
Neil Araujo, general manager, Enterprise Content Management, HP Autonomy. “Businesses now have a very attractive alternative that 
satisfies the needs of the users as well as the IT and compliance teams.”

“It is critical for organizations to make it easy for their knowledge workers to share and collaborate—both internally and externally—to 
drive productivity,” said Melissa Webster, vice president, Content and Digital Media Technologies, IDC. “But they need enterprise-grade 
solutions that give them control over how information is shared with external customers and partners, and that ensure information is 
governed throughout its life cycle. Solutions that address the full scope of enterprise information management needs while at the 
same time offering the ease of use that’s typical of consumer-focused file sharing are well positioned to meet evolving customer 
demands and succeed in the market.”

worrying about IT.”

HP SMB IT in a Box combines HP’s PCs, printers, management console, administration and customer support with the productivity,

HP SMB IT in a Box will continue to grow to encompass all the technologies SMBs need to win in the marketplace. Eventually, the solution 
will include integrated consoles for resellers, IT administrators and end users, allowing easy access to the entire solution, including Google 
Apps for Business.

process,” said Amit Singh, president, Google Enterprise. “We couldn’t be more excited to have HP join the Google Apps Reseller Program 
and bring their decades of experience to helping SMBs thrive in the cloud. We look forward to working closely with HP moving forward to 
help businesses make the most of technology.”

HP Introduces Entry-level, Web-connected Solutions for Large Format Printing

HP today unveiled the industry’s first web-connected, entry-level printing solutions for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) 
students and professionals, making in-house, large-format printing accessible to more users. 

Delivering large-format printing through the cloud from virtually anywhere,(1) the new HP Designjet T120 and T520 ePrinter series provide 
on-the-go professionals with simple and affordable printing solutions. The compact, 24-inch HP Designjet T120 ePrinter series is ideal for 
students and freelancers, while the 24- and 36-inch HP Designjet T520 ePrinter series is designed for small AEC teams in need of 
fast, professional printing. 

HP also announced the second generation of its free web service for AEC professionals, HP Designjet ePrint & Share, which makes it 
easy to access and print large-format documents using an iOS or Android tablet or smartphone, a laptop or ePrinter touch screen.(1,2)

“The economic environment has increased the number of freelancers and small studios, shortened project turnaround times and required 
AEC workers to be highly mobile, spending more than 50 percent of their time out of the office,” said Santiago Morera, vice president and 
general manager, Large-format Printing Business, HP. “The expanded HP Designjet portfolio helps our customers stay connected where 
the job takes them and allows first-time, large-format buyers to easily and affordably bring their printing needs in house.” 

Solutions bring large-format printing in house for customers like ZELLNERPLUS
The smallest printer in its class, with a footprint of only 38.9 inches (987 mm), the HP Designjet T120 ePrinter offers the benefits of two 
printers in one with a built-in B+/A3 tray and convenient front-loading roll. The printer’s intuitive, full-color touch screen simplifies in-house 
printing and navigation for those new to large format. HP inks produce high-quality output with rich colors and sharp lines reaching 
0.0016 inch (0.04 mm) minimum line width.

Available in 24- or 36-inch models, the HP Designjet T520 ePrinter improves processing power and offers twice the speed and resolution 
of its predecessor.(3) With 1 GB RAM and HP-GL/2 technology, the HP Designjet T520 ePrinter operates at up to 35 seconds per D/A1 
print. Original HP inks and long-life printheads achieve accurate lines reaching 0.0008 inch (0.02 mm) minimum line width and sharp 
details with up to 2,400 dots per inch (dpi) resolution for fast, professional results in house.

The HP Designjet T120 and T520 ePrinters are the only large-format printers available with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, so users can 
install the printer where it is most convenient.(4) True print previews from the new HP Designjet driver ensure accurate prints on the 
first try, resulting in time and cost savings when printing from a computer.

“The new HP Designjet printing technology gives us confidence that when we need to produce high-quality drawings in time for a 
meeting, we can handle the job—it takes a lot of stress out of my work schedule,” said Peter Zellner, principal at ZELLNERPLUS, an 
HP Designjet T520 ePrinter beta customer. “Now that I’ve seen how much the HP Designjet T520 ePrinter improves our daily design 
and build process, I can’t imagine working without it.”

HP Brings Large-Format Printing to Design Professionals On the Go with New Mobile Application

Bringing easy large-format printing and the instant sharing of plans to design professionals wherever they work, HP today unveiled a 
new HP ePrint & Share mobile application for the iPhone, iPad® or iPod touch®.(1) 

HP ePrint & Share(2) is a printing and sharing tool that allows designers in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry to 
easily locate and access large-format plans on the cloud. This makes it easy to share these files with team members regardless of file size 
and format, and to adjust page layouts, preview print pages and create print-ready files. 

With the new mobile application, large-format plans are always available from any iOS-based device,(1) enabling users to:

·         Print to any web-connected HP Designjet ePrinter while on the go, whether in a taxi, at the airport or on a construction site.

·         Easily access and view the latest project documents stored in their HP ePrint & Share library at any time.

·         Share designs with remote project teams and seamlessly collaborate with design partners around the world – 
wherever the job takes them.(3)

“AEC design professionals are highly mobile, constantly moving between the office, the job site and offices of partners and clients,” said 
Santiago Morera, vice president and general manager, Designjet Large-Format Solutions, HP. “The new HP ePrint & Share mobile 
application allows designers to view, print and share the designs that are critical to their business, wherever they may be.”

Simplifying the printing and sharing of large-format files

In addition to the new remote printing capabilities, HP’s award-winning ePrint & Share tool simplifies large-format printing by allowing users to 
print without installing drivers or opening applications. 

With the HP ePrint & Share plug-in for AutoCAD, users also can access the tool directly from Autodesk’s industry-leading AutoCAD design 
and documentation application and create print-ready files with just one click. 

New this fall, users can print from HP ePrint & Share to HP LaserJet printers to get A3/B+ and large-format prints in the same printing 
workflow.(4)

“For us, technology is not only a tool to materialize ideas, but an important partner in a creative process that demands a high degree of 
mobility,” said Matias del Campo, principal, SPAN Architecture and Design. “Using the HP ePrint & Share mobile application while we 
are on the go is a very powerful tool for us to communicate with all parties involved in a project, ensuring that the plans we are working 
from are the most current and keeping the design process flowing smoothly and efficiently.”

HP ePrint & Share is available at no additional cost as a download for HP Designjet customers. The mobile application is initially available 
at no additional cost as a launch offer through Apple’s App Store. (5) The HP ePrint & Share mobile application enables remote printing to 
any web-connected HP Designjet printer, including the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP and the HP Designjet T1300 and T790 ePrinters.(1)

HP Veer Packs Big Smartphone Experience into Powerfully Small Package

For anyone who wants a smartphone that packs the features they crave without the extra size they don’t, HP today introduced the powerfully 
small HP Veer smartphone running HP webOS.

Veer is one of the products HP announced today to introduce a unique experience for customers around connected mobility. It’s one of the 
building blocks in HP’s vision to seamlessly connect all your worlds through the power of HP webOS.

Veer is the smallest webOS phone to date – the size of a credit card and no thicker than a deck of cards – yet it offers the higher-end features of 
a smartphone, such as easy messaging and access to apps, social networks and the web, including support for Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 
beta in the browser for access to rich, Flash-based web content.(1)

It has a full slide-out keyboard, vivid touchscreen and access to thousands of webOS apps(2) in a surprisingly small, modern package that fits 
easily into a pocket or purse. It’s everything a smartphone should be, but in a smarter size.

“While much of the industry is trending toward larger and larger devices, we believe there’s also a whole lot of room for thinking small,” said 
Jon Rubinstein, senior vice president and general manager, Palm Global Business Unit, HP. “Veer bridges the gap for a new generation of 
smartphone users, proving they really can have it all without sacrificing the size they want.”

Less is more

At just 54.5 mm x 84.0 mm x 15.1 mm and only 103 grams, Veer touts an 800-MHz processor; a vivid 2.57-inch glass display; full 
slide-out keyboard; 8 gigabytes (GB) of internal user storage; a high-performance browser with full access to the web,(1) including support 
for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 beta; Wi-Fi(1); integrated GPS(3); robust messaging support(4); and multimedia options, including music, 
photos, video recording and playback, and a 5-megapixel camera. 

Veer also includes HP Synergy, which is exclusive to webOS devices. Synergy brings together information from multiple sources across the web 
automatically, so the information you need is all in one place.(5) In one incredibly small design powered by HP webOS, Veer gives you many 
features per square inch:

More than just text – With Veer, messaging means more than just text.(4) Integrated messaging conveniently combines all your text messages, 
picture messages and IM conversations with one person into a single view. You can read and write email with ease and view your email 
accounts together or easily toggle between them. 

More ways to connect – Sign in to your Facebook®, Google, Microsoft® Exchange, LinkedIn and Yahoo!® accounts and the HP Synergy feature 
automatically populates your information on your phone.(5) Mobile social networking apps such as those for Facebook and Twitter allow you to 
stay connected, update your status and upload pictures in real time.(1) The webOS App Catalog features thousands of apps for fast and easy 
access to all the things you need from the web, including games, weather, movie info, news, recipes – you name it.(2) 

More than just search – With Just Type, whatever you want to do on your phone – searching the web, texting, updating your status or almost 
anything – all you have to do is start typing and Veer takes you there.(1,4) 

More apps open – Veer lets you keep multiple websites and apps open at the same time and easily switch between them with just a swipe of 
your finger. Pause a game, read a text message, check your calendar, reply to the text, then switch back to the game without closing 
anything.(1,6) 

More ways to get where you want to be – Veer lets you get directions, find points of interest or discover fun things to do on the go. Built-in GPS 
turns your phone into your personal navigation system, and apps such as Fandango and OpenTable work with GPS to pinpoint your exact 
location, get directions, find places of interest around you and provide turn-by-turn directions.(3) 

More power to you – With HP Touchstone (sold separately), Veer gives you a unique and innovative way to charge your phone. Simply place 
your phone on the dock and it charges automatically; there’s nothing to plug in. And the new Exhibition feature lets you run apps designed 
specifically for Touchstone. Set your phone on Touchstone, and Exhibition launches automatically, showing you anything from today’s calendar 
to a slideshow of your photos.(7) Veer also supports the HP mobile hotspot, enabling your phone to act as a mobile Wi-Fi router so you can share 
wireless internet connectivity with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, including the new HP TouchPad, as well as notebooks, gaming devices and 
portable media players.(8)

Veer is one of three webOS products announced today (see separate announcements for HP Pre3 and HP TouchPad). Each product plays a 
distinct role in the growing webOS family, designed to meet the varying needs of customers in a rapidly evolving mobile landscape.

Availability

The HP Veer smartphone is scheduled to be available in the early spring. Exact pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.

HP TouchPad Brings webOS to the Big Screen

HP today enlarged the HP webOS world with the first webOS slate ­– the HP TouchPad – the breakthrough webOS user interface fully realized 
in the tablet experience.(1)

With its vibrant 9.7-inch diagonal flush capacitive multitouch display, virtual keyboard, instant-on access, support for Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 
beta in the browser and access to thousands of webOS applications,(2) TouchPad works the way you do and is designed not just for fun but 
for mobile productivity. It’s ideal for anyone who wants the benefits of the amazing webOS platform on a much bigger scale.

TouchPad is one of the products HP announced today to introduce a unique experience for customers around connected mobility, offering 
a unified experience for the first time across a variety of devices. It’s one of the building blocks in HP’s vision to seamlessly connect all your 
worlds through the power of HP webOS.

“Today we’re embarking on a new era of webOS with the goal of linking a wide family of HP products through the best mobile 
experience available,” said Jon Rubinstein, senior vice president and general manager, Palm Global Business Unit, HP. “The flexibility of 
the webOS platform makes it ideal for creating a range of innovative devices that work together to keep you better connected to your world.”

Designed to be used alone or as a digital companion to your webOS phone, TouchPad connects you and your devices through the 
elegant webOS experience. Never miss an important call or SMS message – they can be answered and viewed right on your TouchPad.
(3,4) Plus, HP’s exclusive new touch-to-share feature will let you simply touch an enabled webOS phone to your TouchPad to share 
web URLs.(1,5)

With the HP Synergy feature, you simply have to sign in to your Facebook®, Google, Microsoft® Exchange, LinkedIn and Yahoo!® accounts 
and your contacts, calendar and email automatically populate your TouchPad.(6)

TouchPad works the way you do

The TouchPad user interface is a visual representation of your workspace, so you can manage your workflow in a naturally intuitive way that’s 
easy and fun. The power of webOS true multitasking lets you have multiple applications running at the same time. webOS shows you your 
activities in the form of cards, not a sea of application icons on numerous home screens.

This helps you do all the things you want to do, all at once, so you can listen to music, update your status on Facebook, read email and chat on 
IM at the same time.(4,7) As you launch new activities, webOS will automatically group related cards – for example, an email and an associated 
web page – together in a card stack, so you can easily track all related items together.(6)

TouchPad also features a webOS communication suite powered by HP Synergy that keeps you connected and creative, making all of 
your communications simpler, richer and in your control. It’s a complete solution, including email, instant messaging, contacts, calendar, 
videos and a front-facing camera for video calling.(6) Connected photo albums make it easy to share and view your pictures directly from 
popular services such as Facebook, Snapfish and Photobucket. It works seamlessly with TouchPad’s user interface for a natural and 
efficient experience.

Around the house or on the go

TouchPad offers a great internet experience around the house or on the go, so you can manage your busy life, be productive wherever you 
are and stay connected with work, friends, family and social networks. It keeps you connected anywhere there’s Wi-Fi for easy access to the 
web and entertainment.(8)

At home, whether you’re watching TV, relaxing on the sofa, at the kitchen table or in bed, you can check in with friends, surf the web, play 
games or read a book, magazine or newspaper.(2) Amazon.com today announced that it will launch a free Kindle app for HP webOS tailored 
for TouchPad that will give you access to more than 810,000 titles from Amazon’s Kindle Store. You also can subscribe to popular magazine 
titles, such as Time, Sports Illustrated, Fortune and People, and download movies and TV shows through the HP Movie Store. The TouchPad 
music app lets you transfer and play all your favorites from your personal music collection,(9) with amazing sound quality by Beats Audio™. You 
can start an email, create a message, update your status, search your favorite websites – all before you’ve even opened an application. 
Whenever you want to do something on your TouchPad, Just Type.

Buy and sell on Amazon.com, do your banking, buy movie tickets from Fandango or check the news. Whether your thing is Facebook, 
YouTube, Twitter, IM, video calling or email, TouchPad brings it all together with thousands of available webOS applications and the 
convenience and power of HP Synergy for integrated contacts and calendar to keep your busy life on track.(6)

It’s great for road trips, on a plane, while commuting, in public places, while visiting friends and on vacation. It’s easy to pack, has a long-lasting 
battery and integrated GPS (3G only), and posting vacation photos is a snap.(1,10)

Mobile productivity

When productivity is key, TouchPad makes an excellent companion. You can read and write email, view your work and personal 
inboxes together, or easily toggle between them. Integrated messaging conveniently combines all your text messages, picture messages and 
IM conversations with one person into a single view, and you can connect through SMS, Google Talk, AIM and Yahoo! Messenger.(4)

TouchPad’s virtual full QWERTY keyboard includes a number row, which reduces keyboard switching, making typing easy and fast. It powers 
on instantly and brings you back to exactly where you left off, whether you were in the middle of composing an email, playing a game or 
browsing a web page. With webOS true multitasking, it’s like you never left.

For maximum productivity, HP is working with Quickoffice to include the Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite, which lets you view and 
edit documents, such as Microsoft Word and Excel. It also comes with VPN support to connect to corporate networks.

With its 1.3-megapixel front-facing webcam, TouchPad offers video calling capability.(11) It’s also compatible with HP’s industry-leading 
printing solutions, so you can wirelessly print documents, photos and emails to compatible wireless and networked HP printers.(12)

TouchPad has built-in HP Touchstone technology for easy charging, so it’s compatible out of the box with the HP Touchstone for TouchPad
(sold separately), and you can charge in either portrait or landscape mode, even without removing the TouchPad case (sold separately). 
The webOS Exhibition feature lets you run applications designed specifically for Touchstone. Set your TouchPad on Touchstone and 
Exhibition launches automatically, showing you anything from today’s agenda to a slideshow of your photos.(13)

HP Advances the Touch Experience for Consumers and Businesses

New HP TouchSmart PC and HP Omni100 make computing an immersive experience for customers 

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 20, 2010: Introducing a more personal, intuitive and entertaining computing experience

The company also announced the HP TouchSmart Apps Center for one-touch access to free and subscription-

monitor in an all-in-one design. 

HP also is helping businesses make touch an integral part of the customer experience through relationships with 
American Airlines, ESPN and the National Football League’s San Francisco 49ers.

“Each generation of TouchSmart is a reflection of what HP has learned from its customers, complemented by the 
latest technologies,” said James Mouton, senior vice president, Desktop Organization, Personal Systems Group,

high-performance technology that provides an optimal sound experience – the way the artist intended it.(2)

to the interface on the HP TouchSmart desktop PC, the software allows users to drag multimedia content to use 
the notebook’s desktop like a personal canvas and access applications through a carousel view. The tm2

HP Software Helps Businesses Transform Information Technology Processes to Accelerate Improved Outcomes

Businesses around the globe are using software from HP to increase customer satisfaction and drive greater 
efficiencies for competitive advantage. 

Major airlines, hospitals, telecoms and energy companies are adopting the HP software portfolio to transform their 
technology processes in order to deliver business services faster and with higher quality. 

“As the business environment becomes increasingly competitive, clients are looking to technology solutions to 
drive differentiation and support both top- and bottom-line growth,” said Anton Knolmar, vice president, Marketing, 
Software & Solutions, HP. “Our goal is to help clients use technology to power business innovation and deliver 
amazing outcomes to their customers and markets.”

Businesses use HP offerings to drive efficiency and optimize investment
Fiserv, a $4.1 billion financial services solutions provider, used automation to harness the power of virtualization 
and streamline management of physical and virtual servers in a high-volume electronic payment environment. 
Through the company’s implementation of HP Server Automation software, Fiserv was able to automate and 
manage 1,800-plus servers across two of its data centers, improve efficiency and allow for future server growth 
without adding to headcount. 

“By automating manual tasks like policy template customization and rollouts, we were able to operate with greater 
scalability,” said Brian Baggett, engineering architect, Fiserv. “With HP’s help, we not only were able to increase 
efficiency and team productivity, but we also were able to establish consistent standards and best practices for 
compliance regulations, which can be applied throughout the enterprise.”

Verizon Business chose a combination of HP services, enterprise server hardware and automation software to 
serve as the foundation for one of the industry’s most comprehensive cloud computing solutions. Its Computing 
as a Service (CaaS) solution leverages HP technology to provide businesses with a flexible, secure and cost-
effective way to manage IT resources.

“Enterprise clients continue to praise our CaaS solution for the unbeatable combination of security, reliability, 
flexibility and control,” said Joe Crawford, executive director, IT Solutions, Verizon Business. “With leading 
technology from vendors such as HP, we have delivered what we believe is truly a best-in-class enterprise 
cloud solution.”

Virgin Atlantic Airways, a British airline headquartered in Crawley, West Sussex, England, wanted to select and 
deploy an integrated monitoring toolset. Their goals were to raise end-user satisfaction, increase application 
performance, as well as reduce service and infrastructure problems.

“After implementing the HP Business Service Management solution, our customer satisfaction surveys are at an 
all-time high. The IT service team’s workflows are much improved and we proactively deal with high-priority issues 
before they impact the end-user,” said Mark Cameron, head of IT Architecture, Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd. “The 
newly implemented products improve our IT capability and have demonstrated the value of IT to the business.” 

Delta Air Lines, serving more than 160 million people each year, turned to HP Quality Center and HP Performance 
enter to improve customer satisfaction by enhancing the online user experience for its website, airport kiosks and 
curbside devices. HP software helped Delta reduce application testing time by more than 50 percent. Delta 
completed the integration of the SkyMiles and WorldPerks frequent flyer programs on time and on budget.

“The effort to merge our loyalty systems, including the integration of more than 74 million SkyMiles members, has 
been unprecedented, and created the world’s largest frequent flyer program in the process,” said David Moses, 
quality assurance manager for delta.com, Self-Service and CRM, Delta Air Lines. “By automating our application 
testing with HP software, we have been able to deliver what the business wants with the confidence that our 
applications meet our stringent quality and performance requirements.”

St. Louis Hospital, a non-profit private general hospital in Bangkok, Thailand, implemented the HP Medical 
Archive solution to provide 24/7 availability of massive amounts of digitized medical information. The HP solution 
enables the hospital to improve patient care and process efficiency by offering faster access to digitized images. 
Information that previously took several hours to locate now takes only seconds. 

“We have been able to increase the level of satisfaction in both patients and physicians as a result of the 
performance of the HP Medical Archive solution,” said Sombhop Rosarpitak, information technology consultant, 
St. Louis Hospital. “The HP solution provided our organization with an immediate return on investment by lowering 
operational costs and increasing patient satisfaction.”

Transforming information to intelligence to improve business efficiency and effectiveness was a driving factor for 
CenterPoint Energy, a Houston-based energy delivery company, to choose HP Business Intelligence Solutions. 
HP Business Intelligence Solutions help CenterPoint manage the growing amounts of critical business information 
across the organization. 

“Our task is to deliver a superior customer experience through the application of smarter technologies. Business 
analytics and intelligence requires a high degree of data integration and accessibility and serves as the basis for 
our systems of the future,” said Dr. Steven Pratt, senior director, Enterprise Architecture and Systems, CenterPoint 
Energy. “HP Business Intelligence Solutions helped us develop a solution that transforms our organization’s 
information assets from application-centric repositories to a highly accessible business intelligence platform.”

Australian air Express (AaE) is Australia’s largest and most flexible air freight distribution network. The company 
depends on HP Business Technology Optimization (BTO) solutions to preserve the quality, performance and 
effectiveness of its business services and applications. By using HP Software as a Service (SaaS) AaE did not 
need an upfront infrastructure investment. In addition to providing 360-degree monitoring and management of 
business services and application health, HP has helped AaE reduce its testing expenditure by almost 30 
percent. The BTO solutions the company adopted include HP Business Availability Center software, HP 
SiteScope software and HP Quality Center software. 

“HP has enabled us to leverage a single platform to optimize the quality, availability and performance of AaE’s 
mission-critical applications and distributed infrastructure,” said Munro Farmer, chief information officer, Australian 
air Express. “This provides our customers a superior experience.”

Reduce Environmental Impact, Increase Efficiency with Faster Performing HP PCs

HP today introduced a new range of powerful desktop and notebook PCs and displays designed to meet the 
performance and reliability demands of business users while helping businesses increase efficiency and reduce 
their impact on the environment. 

Among the new products being announced are: 
 -- The HP Compaq 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop PC, the industry’s first Microsoft Windows® based desktop PC 
to be free of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) from the wall to the mouse.(1) 
 -- The HP EliteBook 8440 p/w and 8540 p/w series notebooks incorporate the latest mobile technologies, are 
engineered to meet the tough MIL-STD 810G military-standard tests(2) for vibration, dust, humidity, altitude, and 
high and low temperatures, and also are BFR/PVC-free.(1) 
 -- The HP Notebook Projection Companion, a compact projector using a mercury-free LED light source that 
measures only 4 inches by 3 inches and weighs less than 1 pound. 
 -- Engineered to meet the performance, reliability and expandability needs of users with certified application testing, 
collaboration and optimization tools built in, the HP Z200 Workstation adds a new and extremely affordable 
entry-level workhorse to HP’s award-winning Z series of workstations. 

“HP continues to exceed customer expectations with a range of business products designed with both the 
environment and productivity in mind,” said Stephen DeWitt, senior vice president and general manager, Personal 
Systems Group, Americas, HP. “With great designs, energy-saving features and efficient, faster-performing products, 
customers can feel confident choosing HP products to better position themselves in the ever-competitive business 
world.” 

The product introductions are part of a series of launches that will continue over the next few months, providing 
businesses the broadest mix of products to refresh their aging desktops, workstations and notebooks. 

Business-class PCs and monitors designed with the environment in mind 
The size of a ream of paper, the HP Compaq 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop PC is 30 percent more energy efficient 
compared to previous models, engineered with reduced substances of concern – including the mouse, keyboard 
and power cord – and packaged in 100% paper-based recycled molded pulp cushions to help protect it in transit.(3) 

The HP Compaq 8000f Elite is ENERGY STAR® qualified regardless of the configuration, registered EPEAT® Gold 
and includes the user-friendly HP Power Assistant, which helps business users maximize the system’s energy 
efficiency while reducing energy-related operating costs.(4) 

HP Compaq 8100 Elite Desktop PC Series features 89 percent energy-efficient power supplies, supports energy-
saving technologies such as solid state drives (SSDs) and offers HP power-management solutions that help support 
lower energy usage and costs. The series is EPEAT Gold registered and ENERGY STAR qualified, and the power 
supplies are rated 80 PLUS Gold.(5) Utilizing Microsoft operating systems, such as Windows 7(6) and future Intel® 
CoreTM or Core vPro processors, the HP Compaq 8100 Elite Series offers faster, multicore technology enabling 
intelligently maximized performance that can match most businesses’ workloads. 

HP also introduced two displays, the HP Compaq LE19f and the HP Compaq LA22f Widescreen LCD Monitors. 
Available in 19- and 22-inch diagonal sizes, these displays are BFR/PVC-free(7) and contain no mercury. The 
displays are HP’s first to feature WLED low-power-consumption backlit panels. The HP Compaq LA22f is registered 
EPEAT Gold; the HP Compaq LE19f is registered EPEAT Silver; and both are ENERGY STAR 5.0 qualified and 
TCO 5.0 certified. 

Durable notebooks designed for savvy mobile professionals 
Drawing inspiration from aircraft design, HP has updated the look of its award-winning HP EliteBook lineup. 
 -- The HP EliteBook 8440w and HP EliteBook 8540w mobile workstations feature a gunmetal anodized-aluminum 
finish with a full magnesium-alloy chassis to create an incredibly strong case that protects the top and bottom of the 
notebook against rigorous usage. The HP EliteBook 8440w represents the company’s first 14-inch diagonal mobile 
workstation, answering customers’ requests for a smaller notebook. 
 -- The HP EliteBook 8440p and HP EliteBook 8540p retain the classic platinum anodized-aluminum finish and the 
full magnesium-alloy chassis. 

Depending on the model, HP EliteBooks offer a wide variety of configurable options such as choice of Intel Unified
Mobile Access (UMA) or NVIDIA discrete graphics; choice of Intel Core i7 processors(8) or future Intel Core or Core 
vPro processors; and either high-definition (HD) or HD Plus resolution displays.(9) All new HP EliteBooks also come 
preloaded with HP SkyRoom,(10) an affordable, HD videoconferencing software(9) that offers live, real-time 
collaboration for face-to-face meetings. 

The company also announced two new additions to the HP ProBook b-series. The HP ProBook 6440b and 
HP ProBook 6540b are aimed at corporate customers who want an affordable combination of business-critical 
and innovative features in a full-function notebook PC. Featuring future Intel Core processors, and available with 
14-inch or 15.6-inch diagonal HD(9) LED-backlit widescreen displays, the new HP ProBook b-series PCs are ideal 
for users who need powerful, reliable performance. 

The new HP EliteBook and HP ProBook notebook series include HP QuickWeb, which allows users to access
the web in seconds when the notebook is shut down; HP QuickLook3, which allows users to look up and edit 
email, calendar and contacts without having to boot the notebook;(11) HP Power Assistant;(4) and spill-resistant 
keyboards with a drain. 

Additionally, the HP Long Life Battery, which provides up to a three-year life span(12) – up to twice as long as 
most li-ion notebook batteries – will be a configurable option on the new HP EliteBook and HP ProBook b-series 
notebooks. This new technology reduces overall battery waste by requiring fewer batteries to be used over the
life of the notebook. 

The HP Notebook Projection Companion is an ideal notebook accessory for mobile users who want to make a 
big impression. Just 4 inches by 3 inches and weighing less than 1 pound, it can project an image up to 60 inches 
from a distance of 8.5 feet. Because the projector features an LED light source with up to 10,000 hours of usage
life (up to five years of typical use) there are seldom any bulbs to buy or parts to replace, which helps reduce its 
total cost of ownership. 

Performance made affordable in a new HP Z workstation 
Extending the powerful line of HP Z Workstations to reach new affordable levels of performance, the HP Z200 
Workstation is ideal for engineers and designers using Autodesk AutoCAD, photographers using Adobe Photoshop
and power office users. 

Based on workstation-class architecture, design and software application certification, the HP Z200 taps the 
power of Intel’s newest technologies, offering dual-core processor options based on future Intel processors as 
well as quad-core processor options based on the enterprise-class Intel Xeon® 3400 family. As with all HP Z 
Workstations, the HP Z200 provides a flexible workstation platform with a range of options in Windows and 
Linux operating systems and a full range of independent software vendor (ISV) certifications. 

HP also unveiled the HP Performance Advisor software tool, which acts as a personal system engineer to update 
a user’s workstation settings and drivers, ensure optimal performance, maximize stability and increase overall 
productivity. Exclusive to HP workstations and unique to the category, HP Performance Advisor is preinstalled 
on the HP Z200 and ships on all HP workstations at no additional cost. Additionally, all new HP Z Workstations 
come preloaded with HP SkyRoom.(10) 

HP also introduced the HP ZR22w and HP ZR24w Performance Displays, which offer exceptional visual 
performance for demanding visual computing. Ideal for use with HP Z Workstations, these Performance Series 
displays are available in 21.5-inch diagonal and 24-inch diagonal sizes and offer IPS Panel technology, with 96 
percent coverage of the sRGB gamut and 16.7 million colors at affordable prices. The HP ZR22w is ENERGY 
STAR 5.0 qualified and both displays feature an eight-way comfort-adjust stand. 

Pricing and availability(13) 
The HP EliteBooks and the HP ProBook b-series start at $1,299 and $1,099, respectively, and are expected to be 
vailable in the United States in February.

being and prepare them for upcoming growth.”

For Saladino’s, a $385 million company that supplies restaurants up and down the West Coast, a sophisticated 
and reliable technology infrastructure is critical to meeting customer needs and tight delivery deadlines. The
company, based in Fresno, Calif., upgraded to new enterprise resource planning software while standardizing on
HP servers, storage and desktop PCs by working with Western Blue, an HP partner.

“HP systems are flexible and reliable. They have solid desktop PCs and the best server technology on the market.
Knowing the different vendors, HP was an easy choice,” said Craig Urrizola, chief information officer, Saladino’s.
“The benefit of the HP infrastructure continues long after the original deployment. I can easily manage the solution
using web tools, and with every blade server that replaces older servers, we save power and improve efficiency.
The new architecture also accommodates growth and change, providing important flexibility to our business.”

HP Boosts Windows 7 Experience for Consumers, Businesses with New PCs and Services

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 21, 2009 HP, the world’s leading PC company, today announced Windows® 7 will be 
available across its portfolio of consumer and business PCs after midnight tonight.

In addition, HP will provide customers with advanced tools and services to assist their transition to the new 
operating system. 

HP shared its award-winning touch technology and best practices with Microsoft Corp. to guide the development 
of touch technology within Windows 7. The deep collaboration between the companies offers customers one of 
the industry’s most advanced touch computing experiences.

“HP is celebrating the evolution of touch computing with the entry of Windows 7 to the market,” said Carlos 
Montalvo, vice president, Experience Marketing, Personal Systems Group, HP. “We are proud of the HP touch 
framework that we developed for Windows Vista and the collaboration with Microsoft to bring touch into Windows 7.”

For businesses of all sizes, the combination of Windows 7 Professional with a new HP business desktop PC can
run up to three times faster while consuming only half the energy(1) compared to previous versions. Business 
notebooks feature start-up times up to 41 percent faster and shut-down times up to 30 percent faster.(2) 
Connecting an HP printer and accessories also is simplified with the automatic search and installation technology 
in Windows 7, so customers can be up and ready faster.

“We are thrilled with the level of collaboration between HP and Microsoft,” said Nick Parker, general manager of 
Worldwide Sales for HP at Microsoft. “The combination of HP’s new PC portfolio and Windows 7 innovations will 
bring enhanced experiences, improved performance and energy savings to our joint customers.”

Support services for Windows 7
HP is hosting a series of free Windows 7 Experts Days, where more than 45 experts from HP, Symantec and 
other companies will answer questions and share tips to help customers get the most out of Windows 7 and HP 
printers, desktops and notebooks. The first session is scheduled for Nov. 5.

HP offers agents trained in Windows 7 and dedicated phone lines for efficient customer support. The company’s 
consumer and business support boards, where community members and HP employees exchange tips and 
answers, will address questions about Windows 7. 

HP Support Assistant(3) is a simple software application that comes installed on Windows 7 PCs and allows them 
to run smoothly right from the start. Part of HP Total Care services and support, the software maintains PC 
performance and resolves problems with automated updates and tune-ups, onboard diagnostics and guided assistance.

HP’s Windows 7 Onsite Upgrade Service(4) provides businesses support for the transition to Windows 7. The HP 
service includes the installation of Windows 7, data migration, training on how to operate Windows 7, and 
reinstallation and use of legacy Windows XP and Windows Vista® software. 

Services for business customers 
HP Enterprise Business services help customers plan, implement and support an accelerated migration to 
Windows 7 with lower risk and reduced costs. Whether customers manage the Windows environment in-house or 
they outsource, HP’s trained and certified experts can help support customers’ deployment of Windows 7 with 
minimal disruption to the business. 

 -- HP Migration Services offer security, stability and functionality to customers transitioning to Windows 7. HP 
provides client automation services using advanced devices and tools, while managing the deployment and 
support based on the customers’ specific requirements. With early adopter implementations, HP has documented 
optimized processes for migrating outsourcing clients to a new standard image and managing the environment on 
an ongoing basis. These proven best practices for Windows 7 migrations will be extended to all outsourcing clients. 

 -- HP Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Services help customers improve desktop management, control and 
security, while reducing total desktop costs through the centralization of the Windows environment. Together with 
the customer, HP defines a plan through strategy workshops, and then HP tests the plan and delivers 
implementation and support services. 

 -- Windows XP Mode support assists customers implementing Windows XP Mode to run legacy applications. 

 -- HP Client Collaboration Services allow customers to increase productivity and reduce risk through integration 
of a wide variety of client and mobile technologies, including Windows 7 clients, into a unified communications 
and collaboration environment. Together with Microsoft, HP offers a comprehensive set of unified communications 
and collaboration solutions, beginning by jointly defining the business value objectives. 

Printing made simple 
Windows 7 provides features across HP’s printing and imaging portfolio to enable easier connectivity for wireless 
print devices, richer device management and location-aware printing. 

 -- The new Device Stage technology in Windows 7 streamlines interaction with compatible devices connected to 
a PC. From Device Stage customers can see a printer’s status and run common tasks from a single window, 
including ordering supplies online and accessing HP Total Care and Snapfish, HP’s online photo sharing site. 

 -- For customers who routinely print to multiple printers, Windows 7 can automatically and easily switch printers when 
changing locations. Windows 7 remembers which network and printer were last used and automatically switches the 
default printer to match. 

A wide range of HP’s imaging and printing products are supported by Windows 7, including its newest lineup of 
touch-enabled printers. Software also is available for current and new imaging and printing products.

HP’s first Windows 7 multitouch certified monitor for businesses now available
HP also introduced the HP Compaq L2105tm Widescreen Touchscreen Monitor, its first Windows 7 multitouch 
certified monitor. The monitor’s optical touch panel technology can increase the speed and efficiency of work 
erformance and productivity by allowing inputs to be recognized quickly, accurately and without drift. One finger is 
used to scroll through screens, while two fingers can replace a mouse to perform common multitouch gestures. The 
HP Compaq L2105tm also includes a hard stylus that tucks away neatly into the side of the monitor for easy storage. 

Available tomorrow, the HP Compaq L2105tm Touchscreen Monitor starts at $299.(5)

Also available for Windows 7 based PCs is the HP Carbon Footprint Calculator, a tool to help reduce the 
environmental impact – and costs – of computing. In just a few clicks, customers can estimate how applying power-
saving technologies or upgrading to more efficient features can lower power bills, energy use and carbon footprints.

HP Unveils New Multitouch PCs and Display

Company debuts its first fully interactive, 42-inch, high-definition digital signage touch display
Building upon its nearly 30-year history of touch innovation, HP today launched the next era of multitouch 
computing for consumers and businesses. 

Among the new products, HP introduced three touch-enabled HP TouchSmart PCs and its first fully interactive, 
42-inch diagonal, high-definition (HD) digital signage touch display, the HP LD4200tm. 

“Since the launch of the first TouchSmart PC nearly three years ago, we’ve worked closely with a growing number 
of software companies and independent vendors to develop built-for-touch applications that give consumers and 
businesses rich interactive multimedia experiences,” said James Mouton, senior vice president and general manager, 
Desktop Global Business Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP. “These collaborations have helped to make HP 
touch computing the most advanced touch experience in the market today.” 

New consumer HP TouchSmart PCs packed with exclusive touch applications 

HP now offers a choice of 20- or 23-inch diagonal widescreen consumer HP TouchSmart PCs – the HP TouchSmart 
300 and HP TouchSmart 600. Each features a sleek, award-winning design that integrates either a stunning 
HD-capable or HD widescreen display with a multitouch enabled screen. 

Users can simply pinch, rotate, arc, flip, press or drag a finger across the screen of the PC to access information, 
entertainment and social networks in a natural, intuitive way. Though accompanied by a wireless keyboard and 
mouse, new 16:9 widescreen tiles make multimedia, social media and other applications a rich and engaging touch 
experience. 

The new consumer HP TouchSmart PCs feature exclusive built-for-touch applications(1) including: 

 -- Hulu Desktop to provide quick access to Hulu’s vast library of hit TV shows, movies and video clips. Users can 
browse, search and watch their favorite comedies, dramas, sci-fi and web-original shows from nearly 200 leading 
content companies. Users with Hulu.com accounts also can access their queue, subscriptions and viewing history. 
 -- A touch-enabled Netflix application delivers thousands of full-screen TV episodes and movies that are streamed from 
Netflix over the Internet. Using HP’s signature fan view, Netflix members can instantly watch a move from their Instant 
Queue on the PC or remove a movie from their Queue via touch. Netflix members also can rent DVD and Blu-ray discs 
as well as edit and manage their Netflix accounts using the application. A two-week free Netflix trial is available to 
all TouchSmart users in the United States. 
 -- Twitter, a free social networking and micro-blogging service, makes it easy to catch up with family, friends and 
colleagues with the touch of a finger. 
 -- With Rhapsody as the engine, the new HP Music Store gives users streaming, on-demand access to 8 million 
songs delivered to the new TouchSmart PC. Customers who subscribe to Rhapsody can enjoy favorite artists, create 
playlists or just sit back and listen. Non-members can enjoy a free 14-day trial. 
 -- Pandora Internet radio is now touch enabled for a free personalized music experience to find new music based 
on old and current favorites. 
 -- TouchSmart RecipeBox lets aspiring chefs discover, explore and keep track of recipes saved from multiple 
websites and cook with a hands-free experience via voice commands.

recordings in advance of their airing via an electronic programming guide. 
 -- TouchSmart Canvas allows customers to organize their photos on a virtual canvas to quickly and easily create 
photo collages using touch to edit and rotate photos. 
 -- TouchSmart Link allows the transfer of photos and images taken by a mobile device to the TouchSmart PC via 
Bluetooth® wireless technology. 

Customers with previous TouchSmart PC models who upgrade to Windows 7 through the HP Windows 7 Upgrade 
Option Program will receive software with some of these new touch applications. 

A new swivel stand and tilt webcam(1) increase users’ ability to share and collaborate around the HP TouchSmart, 
which also can easily be wall mounted (with optional wall bracket accessory). All models meet ENERGY STAR® 
5.0 requirements. 

Some models of the HP TouchSmart 600 easily connect to gaming consoles, including Xbox, PlayStation and Wii, 
via HDMI or composite video ports. 

World’s first multitouch consumer notebooks now better than ever 

For those whose active lives demand a device for note capture, entertainment, communication and robust 
computing that’s easy to carry, the HP TouchSmart tx2 notebook PC delivers. The HP TouchSmart tx2 combines 
powerful computing with tablet PC capabilities and entertainment features in an attractive design light enough to 
go anywhere. 

With multitouch support within HP MediaSmart, the HP TouchSmart tx2 is the first notebook PC for consumers that 
enables the use of two fingers to navigate HP’s entertainment applications. The HP TouchSmart tx2 features most 
of the same touch applications as the HP TouchSmart PC as well as exclusive touch-enabled games and Corel® 
Painter Sketch Pad for creating digital art. 

The HP TouchSmart tx2 weighs 4.65 pounds,(2) features a 12.1-inch diagonal WGXA HD HP LED widescreen
integrated touch-screen convertible display, AMD Turion™ dual-core processors(3) and a glossy HP Imprint finish 
with titanium color “Reaction” pattern. 

The convertible design with a twist hinge allows consumers to enjoy the HP TouchSmart tx2 in three modes: PC, 
display and tablet. With a rechargeable digital ink pen, users can turn the HP TouchSmart tx2 into a tablet PC to 
write, sketch, draw, take notes or graph right onto the screen – and then automatically convert handwriting into typed text. 

Business HP TouchSmart drives new customer interactions, business models 

The industry’s only full-featured, all-in-one, multitouch-enabled business PC, the HP TouchSmart 9100 Business 
PC provides real-time information, videoconferencing capabilities(4) and multimedia features in a 23-inch diagonal
full HD(5) widescreen display. 

The HP business TouchSmart is enabling a more interactive, compelling customer experience at businesses such 
as bridal retailer Priscilla of Boston for luxury dress concierge service, St. Louis Oncology for medical filing, the 
NBA’s Detroit Pistons for instant replays and food, and hotels such as Sheraton and Marriott to provide enhanced 
customer lobby experiences. 

New business models are emerging with the HP TouchSmart 9100. Digital Aisle, an interactive shopper solutions 
company, is bringing “virtual sales assistants” to life using HP’s interactive touch screens. The Digital Aisle’s 
Virtual Bartender uses HP TouchSmart technology to help people plan parties, print and email recipes, and learn 
expert bartending tips. This interactive point-of-purchase tool has been deployed to independent and chain retailers 
across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. 

An array of new enhancements on the HP TouchSmart 9100 include: 

 -- DVI output, enabling customers to connect to their full HD format displays and projectors 
 -- Configure-to-order options designed to meet the needs of businesses, including a choice of genuine Microsoft 
Windows® 7 32-bit or 64-bit operating system,(6) processors, optical drives, hard drives, solid state drives, Kensington

controls for custom kiosk configurations

Mobile Express Module (MXM) graphics slot

 -- FireWire® output for quick and easy transfer of digital files, photos and videos from a wide variety of IEEE94-
compatible peripheral devices 
 -- Optional wireless keyboard and mouse

The HP TouchSmart for business is a space- and energy-saving portal for businesses. Its ENERGY STAR qualified 
and EPEAT® Silver registered design uses 55 percent less metal and 37 percent less plastic than standard PCs 
and monitors. With the easy-to-use HP Power Manager tool, companies also can configure their individual PC power 
settings to save energy without interfering with the PC’s ability to perform. 

Businesses shine with HP’s first fully interactive, 42-inch, HD digital signage display 

The HP LD4200tm is a 42-inch diagonal, sleek black digital signage built to fit in trendy indoor environments, 
such as kiosks, retail, point of sale, shopping malls, travel terminals, hotel lobbies, recreational venues, universities, 
stock exchanges and hospitals. 

It features infrared technology, which recognizes multitouch gestures for onscreen interaction in 1,920 x 1,080 full 
HD native resolution to provide stunning views of video, graphics or text in both bright and dim lighting. In addition, 
an ultra-wide 178 x 178 degree viewing angle enables observation from almost any angle and, unlike TV screens,

HP Introduces SkyRoom: Powerful and Affordable Videoconferencing for Businesses

Pioneering collaboration software leapfrogs freeware offerings, enables instant face-to-face meetings with full 
desktop sharing

HP today established a new category in videoconferencing with the introduction of HP SkyRoom – affordable, 
high-definition videoconferencing software(1) that offers live, real-time collaboration for instant face-to-face 
meetings with no subscription fees.

HP SkyRoom is based on breakthrough video and image communication technology developed in HP Labs, the 
company’s central research arm. Elements of this technology were used by NASA’s Mars rovers to transfer high-
resolution images back to Earth. HP SkyRoom is the only videoconferencing tool to offer real-time collaboration 
for up to four people over a standard business network for $149 – less than the cost of round-trip airfare from San 
Francisco to Los Angeles. 

Until now, companies have had few options for videoconferencing – expensive enterprise telepresence systems 
or Internet freeware tools that strip out the subtleties of human interactions and don’t allow for the sharing of rich 
media content such as video and computer-aided design manipulation. 

HP SkyRoom will be included as a standard feature – at no cost – on select HP business desktop and mobile 
workstations and for free for a trial period on many upcoming HP premium business PCs and notebooks. HP 
SkyRoom can be used on workstations or PCs from Dell, Lenovo or Sun that meet minimum technology 
requirements. Companies now have the power to change the economics of travel and reduce their carbon footprint 
while preserving the value of personal human interaction. 

“Finally, video meetings with genuine eye contact and natural human interaction are as easy as starting an instant 
messaging connection,” said Jim Zafarana, vice president and general manager, Workstations, HP. “It takes 
business productivity and collaboration to a completely new level when we can connect people around the world
in a day via HP SkyRoom and let them get home to family dinner and bedtime stories – without the wear and tear 
of travel.”

With HP SkyRoom, users can share any type of application supported on their PC or workstation, including office 
documents, streaming video and interactive 3-D applications: 

 -- Digital content and engineering teams can collaborate on sophisticated design concepts, allowing tremendous 
flexibility and performance for sharing content and visually rich human conversations. 
 -- Production houses can preview animation clips to dispersed teams for live, instant feedback. 
 -- Financial teams spread across the world can run live models for discussion and collaboration. 
Using HP SkyRoom is as easy as beginning an instant message conversation. Users simply click a contact to 
connect, which quickly initiates a live SkyRoom session. Another click shares the desktop or rich media content, 
and participants are instantly collaborating. During an HP SkyRoom session, information is transferred at a rate 
four times faster than the blink of an eye.(2)

HP SkyRoom is the culmination of three years of research to design video and image compression algorithms by 
HP Labs into a customer-centric implementation by the HP Workstation team, which designs professional-quality 
solutions in collaboration with industry-leading brands around the globe. 

The breakthrough innovation behind HP SkyRoom comes from the combination of high-definition, multiuser 
videoconferencing and a sophisticated capability to share display information more securely than with actual transfer 
of data and processing functions. 

HP SkyRoom’s video engine enables all participants to see the presenter’s display and each other through a 
multiway videoconferencing session. The video engine is multithreaded to take advantage of the power of today’s 
multiprocessor and multicore processing technologies. 

HP SkyRoom’s image engine gives remote users a view of the host presenter’s desktop and its applications as if 
they were using a local machine. It enables the display of 2-D and 3-D graphics, full-motion video and multidisplay 
on a system that only has a 2-D graphics card. 

The HP SkyRoom software on the presenter’s system monitors and updates only changes in screen appearance – 
not the entire display – then compresses and encrypts the information before sending it to the participants, where it 
is decrypted, decompressed and updated. In this way, network traffic is greatly reduced, latency and bandwidth 
equirements are reduced, and the need for dedicated networking hardware is eliminated.

Minimum requirements for HP SkyRoom
To run HP SkyRoom on any vendor PC, minimum requirements are Intel® Core 2™ Duo 2.33-GHz or equivalent 
processor with 2 GB RAM, a webcam and Microsoft Windows® XP or Vista®. Minimum network requirement is a 
broadband network with a minimum transfer rate of 400kb/second. HP SkyRoom must run over a corporate VPN 
to connect to systems outside the local firewall. 

Pricing and availability(3)
HP SkyRoom is available worldwide preinstalled at no cost on the HP Z800, Z600, Z400 and xw4600 workstations. 
Select premium business PCs and notebooks due out from HP in the coming months will include a 90-day trial of 
HP SkyRoom, which will be available for purchase thereafter. Customers using current HP workstations, desktops, 
notebooks or non-HP systems can purchase HP SkyRoom for $149.

For an optimal quality experience that beta testers have said makes their own environment fall away as they feel 
present and immersed in the conversation, HP recommends users also purchase the HP SkyRoom Standard 
Accessory Kit for $119, which includes a high-resolution webcam and headphones. HP also offers a kit with 
speakers as an alternative to the headset.

HP Expands Networking Portfolio

Converged blade and networking technologies increase virtualization performance and network flexibility 

HP today expanded its networking portfolio with new HP ProCurve offerings integrated with HP BladeSystem 
infrastructure solutions that enable customers to increase performance, security and management of both physical 
and virtual environments.

The new offerings include the HP ProCurve 6120 series designed to leverage the award-winning HP BladeSystem
infrastructure and an expansion of the HP ProCurve 8200 and 5400 Ethernet switch portfolio. Also included in the 
announcement is a firmware upgrade to HP Virtual Connect that allows users to change bandwidth on the fly to 
respond to fluctuations in application requirements. 

“The integration of HP ProCurve Networking blade switches with the HP BladeSystem infrastructure is a pivotal 
change for HP as the company aggressively diverges itself from the competition,” said Nick Lippis, president of 
analyst firm Lippis Enterprises. “These new HP solutions provide customers the proven reliability of standards-
based computing, in addition to lowering maintenance and operational costs.” 

Increased network flexibility
 -- To reduce complexity and deliver investment protection, the 10Gb HP ProCurve 6120XG Blade Switch is 
designed to meet the demands of virtual machines and high-performance applications. When combined with the 
HP ProCurve Data Center Connection Manager, the switch delivers automated network connection management 
and provisioning. Engineered with emerging network standards in mind, the HP ProCurve 6120XG Blade Switch is

 -- To simplify the transition from 1Gb to 10Gb, the new HP ProCurve 6120G/XG Blade Switch seamlessly integrates 
a mix of legacy network equipment in the data center. This allows customers to maximize return on investment for their 
existing environments. 

To address mission-critical local area network (LAN) access, midsize LAN and data center networking, HP 
ProCurve extended the connectivity and design options for the 8200 and 5400 switch families. Customers with 
unified communications and video surveillance can use high-capacity Power over Ethernet (PoE+) to reduce costs 
while lowering power consumption. The new offerings also expand HP ProCurve’s unified networking approach by 
using common architecture, security and management tools across the portfolio.

These new switches offer customers more affordable networking options over competing solutions and are 
backed by the ProCurve Lifetime Warranty.(1) 

Improved virtualization management with simplified connectivity
To reduce network complexity, lower connectivity costs and offer flexibility for deploying a data center technology 
infrastructure, HP enhanced its innovative Virtual Connect portfolio. HP Virtual Connect with HP BladeSystems 
reduces acquisition costs up to 66 percent.(2) New customer benefits include:

 -- Twice the Fibre Channel bandwidth at a lower cost per 8Gb port than competitive offerings with HP Virtual 
Connect 8Gb 20-Port Fibre Channel Module. The solution is ideal for virtualization and other high-performance 
applications. 

 -- Increased network flexibility from the new Virtual Connect Firmware Update with Virtual Connect Flex-10. This 
allows users to dynamically change network connections and adjust bandwidth without rebooting the server. It 
also provides expanded support for up to 128 virtual local area networks (VLANs) to improve delivery of 
infrastructure-as-a-service deployments, as well as enhanced network diagnostics to simplify management. 

HP channel partners also will benefit from an enhanced portfolio of networking options to offer customers. 
Additionally, they can leverage the extensive installed base of more than 1.5 million blade units to drive new HP 
ProCurve sales opportunities.(3)

“Virtual sprawl has been an ongoing challenge for customers, adding unnecessary complexity and management 
costs that take valuable resources away from business innovation,” said Marius Haas, senior vice president and 
general manager, HP ProCurve. “By delivering a converged solution that is easier to manage, higher performing 
and reduces costs, HP is eliminating these challenges, allowing customers to focus their efforts on growing the 
business, today and in the future.”

Reduced risk with proven methodology and investment advice
HP also announced enhancements to its HP Adaptive Infrastructure Maturity Model (AIMM) for both end-users 
and channel partners. The maturity model includes new tools that help customers improve return on investment
by providing the information needed to make informed technology purchase and operational decisions.

HP Introduces World’s Thinnest Full-performance Notebook and Slim, Stylish Notebook

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 15, 2009  HP today introduced the world’s thinnest full-performance notebook PC(1) 
as well as a slim, stylish consumer notebook that delivers an optimal balance of mobility, performance and affordability. 

The thin and light notebook market represents a significant growth opportunity over the next several years, 
according to IDC. Over the next five years, this category is forecast to grow three times faster than the overall 
notebook market in the United States, which is a trend that is expected to spread worldwide.(2) The new HP 
ProBook 5310m and HP Pavilion dm3 expand the market for the category, an area HP pioneered earlier this year 
with the introduction of the affordable HP Pavilion dv2. 

Designed for mobile professionals, the HP ProBook 5310m, the world’s thinnest full-performance notebook, is a 
0.9-inch thin, 3.7 pound(3) notebook sporting a 13.3-inch diagonal LED high-definition(4) (HD) display and a 
standard voltage processor for maximum productivity. It combines durable, black anodized aluminum with a 
magnesium frame wrapped in soft-touch paint that impresses not only with its sophisticated design at an affordable 
price, but with outstanding performance in a thin and sleek notebook. 

The HP Pavilion dm3 provides consumers the ultimate balance of mobility and performance in an affordable, all 
metal, thin and light design. With up to 10 hours of battery life via the standard six-cell battery,(5) the notebook 
provides all-day battery life and rich entertainment capabilities without sacrificing performance. The dm3 boasts 
an HD(4) BrightView 13.3-inch diagonal LED screen and choice of AMD or Intel processors and discrete graphics 
to meet the multimedia needs of demanding consumers. 

“Striking designs, impressive product features, outstanding value and a focus on computing performance add 
up to a mobile experience second to none,” said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Notebook 
Global Business Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP. “These new notebooks further validate our position as an 
undisputed leader in notebook design and raise the bar for the entire thin and light category.” 

HP ProBook 5310m – thin, powerful, and affordable 
With the HP ProBook 5310m, mobile professionals no longer need to sacrifice performance to achieve great 
battery life. HP offers the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo SP9300(6) processor that provides all the power a user would expect 
with a full-performance PC, while still delivering up to seven hours of battery life(5) with the standard lithium-polymer 
battery. An optional six-cell battery, expected to be available later this year, will further increase battery run time. 

The HP ProBook 5310m is also flexible enough to scale down to meet the needs of customers who don’t require 
a full-performance standard voltage notebook. When equipped with an Intel Celeron® dual-core, ultra-low-voltage 
processor, the HP ProBook 5310m is an affordable step up from companion or netbook devices. It is ideal for 
computing tasks such as email, calendar and office applications, and it provides the ability to view HD content, 
consume and create content, and access the Internet. 

HP QuickWeb allows users to access the web in seconds when the notebook is shut down. The application
resides outside the notebook’s operating system, so there is no need to wait for the computer to boot up, users 
can simply push the dedicated button. In less than 20 seconds, users have a secure connection to the Internet 
and can access websites and content normally obtained through a standard browser.(7) Additionally, HP 
QuickLook3 allows users to look up and respond to email, calendar and contacts without having to boot the 
notebook.(7) 

Integrated HP Mobile Broadband powered by Gobi(8) allows users to conveniently access the Internet, company 
intranet, email, and mission-critical information in more places than ever before. The new HP Connection Manager 
3.0 simplifies and automates connecting users with their preferred network.

Designed to provide maximum flexibility to mobile users, the HP Pavilion dm3 comes with a choice of processors, 
including the latest Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Neo Dual Core processors.(11) It also offers consumers a choice of 
Intel shared, ATI or NVIDIA discrete graphics. 

When configured with the AMD Neo and ATI combination, the HP Pavilion dm3 offers PowerXpress, which provides
performance graphics when plugged in and switches to shared graphics when unplugged for superb battery life. 

Preloaded with HP MediaSmart software, the dm3 makes managing and enjoying digital music, Internet TV, videos, 
photos and other content fast and easy. New dedicated function keys allow for quick access to media controls, 
while high-speed hard drive options up to 500 gigabytes (GB) provide ample room for media and documents.(12) 

At less than one-inch thin and weighing only 4.2 pounds, the Pavilion dm3 features a lightweight, brushed aluminum 
chassis in sophisticated Modern Argento gray that makes it easy for consumers to carry virtually anywhere. 

In addition, the HP Pavilion dm3 supports optional built-in WWAN for wireless connectivity(8) anywhere a cell phone 
works and includes a low-light VGA HP Webcam and microphone for staying in touch with friends and family. 
Lightweight external optical disc drives, including a Blu-ray(13) option, are available. 

HP also announced the new HP Envy sub-brand, including a premium thin and light notebook, the HP Envy 13. 
Additional information on HP Envy will be available the morning of Sept. 15 at www.hp.com/go/ENVY.

HP Expands Global Software Partner Program with Flexible Licensing Options

HP today announced the expansion of its global software partner program to provide greater flexibility of 
licensing for select HP software portfolios, enabling customers to lower costs by using the software delivery 
model that best meets their business needs. 

The new HP Software and Solutions Managed Service Provider Program and HP Software and Solutions 
Project-based Partner Program enable partners to address new market opportunities with a broad choice of 
licensing options. Partners can enter the rapidly growing managed service and outsourcing markets with HP’s 
industry-leading Business Technology Optimization and Information Management software. 

Partners can offer their own branded and hosted application security managed service or project-based 
application performance validation service based on HP offerings. This expansion complements the recently 
announced HP Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) partner program that allows partners to resell offerings from the 
HP SaaS portfolio along with specialized value-added services based on their areas of expertise. 

”Taking advantage of the growing market for software-as-a-service solutions will require fundamental changes 
in partner delivery models,” said Darren Bibby, program director, Software Channels Research, IDC. “Giving 
partners access to a broad portfolio of products with a wide range of licensing options provides the kind of 
flexibility that partners need to maximize these new opportunities.” 

Program enables partners’ managed services offerings 
The Managed Service Provider program helps partners offer managed services based HP Business Technology 
Optimization and HP Information Management software with a broad selection of licensing models. 
Licensing options include: 

 -- Multitenant: Lets partners provide services to support multiple end-users through a single technology 
configuration. It helps create a repeatable solution with lower administration costs. 
 -- Utility and subscription: Help partners align services revenues to expenses through incremental billing. Flexibility 
in procurement terms enables partners to increase or decrease software usage based on the customer’s software 
consumption. 
 -- Dedicated perpetual: Offers perpetual licenses to partners who provide services to a single dedicated end-user. 
This model allows partners to capitalize the purchase, which reduces administration costs and improves return on 
investment. 

“Customers can do more with flat or shrinking IT budgets when they have a choice of procurement models for 
software and services,” said Brad Kern, vice president, Worldwide Alliances, Software and Solutions, HP. “With a 
wide range of partner programs to meet nearly any business model, HP is helping its partners deliver cost-effective 
solutions that meet customers’ budget requirements.” 

Term-based licensing enables shorter-term service offerings 
HP Software and Solutions Project-based Partner Program offers partners term-based software licensing for select 
products from the HP Business Technology Optimization software portfolio. Using products on a per-project basis 
to deliver shorter-term service offerings enables partners to lower costs for their customers by offering the exact 
services their customers need. 

Campaign syndication program enhances partners’ marketing efforts 
In addition, the new HP Campaign Syndication Program assists HP Software Business Partners in generating 
new opportunities. This program provides a complete online toolset that allows partners to grab “ready-made” 
marketing materials directly from HP. Partners can personalize the materials to include their own unique offerings 
and post them on their own websites. Additionally, partners can develop multitouch marketing campaigns and 
track effectiveness with in-depth reporting capabilities. 

HP Software and Solutions Partner Program reaction 
“With HP’s new project-based licensing model, we can now deliver the VIP Velocity Program, a new services 
offering built around HP LoadRunner software,” said Dan Delano, director of Delivery at Visionary Integration 
Professionals, a global technology and outsourcing firm. “We expect to see an immediate competitive advantage 
and unlock new market opportunities with our affordable, fixed-price plan for customers seeking project-based 
access to performance engineering services.” 

“With HP’s new syndication service, we can take entire marketing programs from HP, personalize them and then 
run them,” said Debbie Jolicoeur, vice president of Marketing at International Integrated Solutions Ltd., an HP 
platinum partner. “We can focus less on creation and more on execution. The enhanced reporting that comes 
with the service enables us to quickly know which programs are most effective.” 

HP Software and Solutions Global Business Partners 
HP trains, certifies and supports its wide network of software and solutions partners to help them deliver better 
solutions to customers. Partners may elect to have their solutions undergo a thorough integration test under the 
HP Enterprise Management Alliance Program to ensure they are compatible with existing HP software products. 

Because of the rigors of the testing process, solutions coming from HP partners meet the highest standards for 
reliability and interoperability. The HP Software Global Business Partner Program provides partners with marketing 
and sales strategies, sales and technical certification plus comprehensive technical support.

HP Helps Small and Midsize Businesses Save Time and Money

HP today expanded its Total Care initiative for small and midsize businesses (SMBs) with several new products, 
solutions and services that reduce costs, improve productivity and enhance efficiency.(1) 

To help SMB customers keep their businesses up and running with less capital and fewer employees and 
technology resources, HP has introduced infrastructure offerings including storage, virtualization, remote access 
and consolidation solutions. 

“In today’s economic climate, SMBs need technology solutions that take out costs while helping drive even 
greater competitive advantage so they can survive and thrive,” said Kathy Chou, vice president, Worldwide 
Small and Medium Business Strategy, HP. “Through our Total Care initiative, HP is helping customers achieve 
their business goals.” 

Customers can better manage data growth while reducing the complexity and costs of storage through: 

 -- The HP StorageWorks X1000 and X3000 Network Storage Systems unify file and application storage to simplify 
storage infrastructures. With a single, unified system, SMBs do not need to invest in separate storage systems 
for file and database data. The new network-attached storage solutions provide up to 35 percent more usable 
capacity through file deduplication(2) while also increasing file serving performance by up to 30 percent.(3) 

 -- The HP StorageWorks 2000i and 2000sa G2 Modular Smart Arrays feature 2.5-inch, small form factor drives 
that increase storage capacity by up to 33 percent per unit of rack space.(4) They also reduce power requirements 
up to 50 percent.(3) 

“AMI has surveyed thousands of SMBs over the past 10 months and the results show that to survive in this 
economy, taking costs out of their business and improving data management are high on their agendas,” said 
Anil Miglani, senior vice president of strategy consulting firm AMI Partners. “SMBs need products and solutions 
esigned from the ground up to help them meet these goals while also focusing on growing their business. HP is 
well-positioned to help SMB customers thrive in this economy because of its comprehensive Total Care portfolio.” 

To further help customers protect and grow their businesses, HP unveiled: 

 -- The HP Virtualization Bundle, the industry’s first integrated solution that allows SMBs to more easily and cost-
effectively deploy virtualization by transforming existing server disk drives into highly available shared storage. 
The bundle allows customers to reduce costs up to 35 percent by eliminating the need for external storage to 
support application high availability.(5) The bundle includes HP server, storage and networking technology as 
well as integrated virtualization software from HP and VMware. 
 -- HP Secure Remote Access solutions, which help reduce costs, eliminate business disruptions and maximize 
sales opportunities for SMBs with mobile workforces. These solutions, powered by Citrix XenApp™ Fundamentals, 
allow mobile workers to maintain constant and secure connections with critical business applications regardless 
of their location or connectivity device. As part of the solutions, which include servers, storage, networking, PCs 
and printers, HP is offering SMB channel partners discounted servers and storage through the HP SmartBuy 
program. Additionally, partners can take advantage of a one-year free trial of Citrix XenApp Fundamentals. 
 -- The recently unveiled HP 4410t Mobile Thin Client, which provides enhanced security access to server-based 
computing and reduces IT workload while providing the mobility of a notebook. With improved data security, 
easy manageability, no hard drive, fewer moving parts and lower power consumption, this thin client reduces
SMBs’ carbon footprint and costs. 

HP solutions deliver cost, energy and time savings 
To help customers reduce costs, improve productivity and more efficiently manage data and operations, 
HP announced: 

 -- The HP Total Care Branch Office Consolidation solutions, which offer customizable configurations of servers, 
storage, networking, PCs and printers to help SMBs significantly reduce the time needed to consolidate multiple 
branch sites into a single location. According to an IDC white paper, the solutions can reduce total technology 
costs by up to 25 percent when combined with improved technology practices.(6) 

New printing solutions deliver professional-quality output at significant cost and energy savings versus 
competing laser printers: 

 -- Saving up to 50 percent on energy consumption with HP Instant-on Technology, (7) the HP LaserJet Enterprise 
P3010 Printer series ($549-$999)(8) is a high-performance networked(9) printer for businesses needing to print high 
volumes with added protection for confidential documents on a variety of media types. 
 -- Through HP Smart Template Printing, SMBs can save time and money by printing marketing materials and 
business documents on free, customizable templates at the touch of a button from a PC or notebook.(10) 
 -- The HP Officejet 6000 Printer series ($89-$119)(8) delivers professional-quality prints at fast speeds, offers up 
to 40 percent less cost per page and energy use than comparable laser printers.(11) The series also was recently 
classified as “Highly Reliable” by Buyers Laboratory Inc. 
 -- The HP Officejet 7000 Wide Format Printer ($229)(8) is HP’s first entry-level, wide-format printer with individual 
inks. Ideal for creating business documents and marketing collateral, it delivers professional color documents and 
photo-quality, borderless prints at the lowest cost per page versus in-class inkjets.(12) 

As part of the HP Eco Solutions program, the three new printers are ENERGY STAR® qualified and use significantly 
less energy than competitive laser printers(7) based on several key environmental attributes listed on the HP Eco 
Highlights label. 

HP also announced the new HP Scanjet N6350 Networked Flatbed Document Scanner ($899),(8) a simple-to-use, 
versatile page scanner with integrated networking expected to be available for purchase worldwide in June. 

New collaborations and solutions drive growth 
HP is providing value-added resellers (VARs) and channel partners with new revenue-generating opportunities 
by expanding its cloud computing services through agreements with Cobweb and Cast Iron. 

 -- Cobweb, a leader in hosting services, enables VARs in the United Kingdom to offer private-label Microsoft® 
solutions via the cloud to SMBs. The pay-as-you-go model allows SMBs to efficiently run their business with fewer 
resources. 
 -- Cast Iron Systems enables SMBs in the United States to integrate software-as-a-service applications with 
existing infrastructures already running applications and databases. 
 -- Measuring just over 1-inch thick and starting at 2.33 pounds, the HP Mini 1101 Notebook PC, introduced 
yesterday, is an ideal companion PC for SMBs and frequent business travelers. The Mini 1101 offers a 10.1-inch 
diagonal standard or optional high-definition (HD) LED widescreen display, a keyboard that is 92 percent the size 
of a standard notebook PC keyboard, and a built-in webcam and microphone. Mobile SMB workforces can choose 
optional integrated HP Mobile Broadband, which allows access to the Internet, corporate intranets, email and 
critical business information in more places around the world. 
 -- The recently introduced HP ProBook s-series is ideal for small businesses seeking the best combination of 
business features, functionality and value. The series incorporates a choice of finishes, a mercury-free design and 
HD LED backlit displays in a variety of screen sizes.(13) It also includes a set of professional innovations previously 
found only on higher-priced models. To help keep energy costs down, the portfolio holds an Electronic Products 
Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®) gold rating and is ENERGY STAR qualified. 

Special financing 
To help SMBs deploy their technology solutions while also conserving capital, HP Financial Services is offering 
flexible leasing and financing options. Recommendations from HP Financial Services on how SMBs can make the 
most of their technology budget are available in the white paper “Leasing helps small, midsized companies 
s-t-r-e-t-c-h their IT investment dollars.”

HP Helps Small and Medium-size Businesses Gain Competitive Edge with New Printers, Support Services

Bolstering its Total Care initiative to better serve small and medium-size businesses, HP today announced two 
additions to its HP Officejet portfolio. The award-winning product line offers up to 50 percent savings on printing 
costs and energy use.(1) 

Additionally, HP unveiled specialized support packages designed to provide small businesses with enhanced 
technical support for their home and office environments. 

HP made the announcements in conjunction with the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Small 
Business Week at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Conference Center in Washington, D.C. HP is the sponsor

HP Offers Free Web Security Tool to Help Businesses Guard Against Malicious Hackers

HP today announced HP SWFScan, a free tool to help Flash developers protect their websites against 
unintended application security vulnerabilities and reduce the risk of hackers accessing sensitive data. 

As companies modernize their applications to give users a better experience online, they are moving to Web 2.0 
technologies, including the Adobe® Flash® Platform. With Adobe Flash Player installed on more than 98 percent 
of Internet-connected PCs worldwide, it is imperative that web applications built with Flash technology are 
developed securely. 

HP SWFScan allows Flash developers to deliver more secure code without becoming security experts. The tool
is the first of its kind to decompile applications developed with the Flash Platform and perform static analysis to 
understand their behaviors. This helps identify vulnerabilities that lie under the surface of an application and are 
not detectable with traditional dynamic methods. 

With HP SWFScan, Flash developers can: 

 -- Check for known security vulnerabilities that are targeted by malicious hackers. This includes unprotected 
confidential data, cross-site scripting, cross-domain privilege escalation, and user input that does not get validated. 
 -- Fix problems quickly by highlighting vulnerabilities in the source code and receiving solid guidance on how to
fix the security issues. 
 -- Verify conformance with best security practices and guidelines. 

“The Adobe Flash Platform is being used more and more by large media companies and for business-critical 
applications. We are working with HP to make sure developers have tools to help secure content and keep 
customers safe,” said Brad Arkin, product security and privacy director, Secure Software Engineering Team, Adobe. 
“We worked with HP on their SWFScan tool, which will help Flash developers find potential security issues early in 
the development process so they can understand and prevent problems before web applications are ever deployed.” 

Find, fix and prevent security vulnerabilities 

An example of the types of security vulnerabilities HP SWFScan can prevent is leaving confidential information 
accessible to hackers. Flash developers often create an unintentional vulnerability by encoding access information 
such as passwords, encryption keys or database information directly into their applications. This video demonstrates 
how hackers can exploit this vulnerability. 

HP analyzed almost 4,000 web applications developed with Flash software and found that 35 percent violate 
Adobe security best practices. Hackers can exploit this situation to circumvent security measures and gain 
unfettered access to sensitive information. HP SWFScan helps developers find and correct these problems 
before they become an issue. 

“Applications developed with Flash technologies are no more immune to security vulnerabilities than any other 
web applications,” said Joseph Feiman, vice president and fellow, Gartner. “Giving Flash developers the ability to 
check whether their code is secure, providing guidance on how to fix it, and offering best secure-programming 
practices will help to protect businesses and their customers from hackers.” 

The HP Web Security Research Group, which developed SWFScan, includes many renowned experts in the 
security field. The group tracks web-related security threats and develops new technology to help IT professionals 
eliminate application security vulnerabilities. The results of the group’s research are incorporated into HP Application 
Security Center, a suite of products that allows customers to find, fix and prevent these vulnerabilities across the 
application life cycle. 

HP Application Security Center includes the HP Assessment Management Platform as the foundation of the 
solution, and features HP DevInspect software for developers, HP QAInspect software for quality assurance 
teams and HP WebInspect software for operations and security experts. 

“As organizations modernize their applications with Web 2.0 technology, they must be vigilant about preventing 
malicious hacker attacks and eliminating software defects of a security nature,” said Jonathan Rende, general 
manager and vice president, Products, Software and Solutions, HP. “HP continues to help make the web a safer 
place by turning our security research into solutions for customers to protect their applications, their websites and 
their sensitive information.”

HP Launches New Business Intelligence Services to Help Customers Manage Information Complexity, Reduce Operating Costs

HP today announced new service offerings to help companies improve the governance and accuracy of their 
information and allow them to drive better business decisions across the enterprise. 

Companies need reliable, accurate data to run their businesses and make the right decisions. They must be able 
to effectively share and manage information across organizational boundaries in order to function efficiently, 
reduce operating costs and manage risk. 

HP’s new business intelligence services help companies establish an integrated view of information across their 
organizations. They also improve the quality of data and establish governance models to manage the information 
as a shared asset. The resulting improvements in decision making, operational efficiency and risk mitigation allow 
companies to use their information to make better decisions to meet business needs. 

HP’s business intelligence services address this complex and challenging environment with three new offerings: 

 -- Master Data Management Services – Enable customers to capture, manage, store and use master data elements 
consistently across an organization. With a single source for trusted data, customers can look across information 
silos to understand complex information relationships. This enables organizations to understand the total customer 
relationship for cross-sell and up-sell opportunities, improve procurement process efficiencies and mitigate business risk. 

 -- Information Quality Management Services – Help customers improve the quality of their information so that it is 
accurate, consistent and complete. This is achieved through a methodology that aligns quality initiatives with 
business objectives and puts in place the necessary stewardship program, quality control framework and metadata 
management to help define, monitor and measure information quality. 

 -- Information Governance Services – Provide organizations with a framework to ensure that data is consistent, 
available, accessible, auditable and secure. The services help customers protect, manage and develop data as 
a valued enterprise asset, while lowering the cost of managing it. 

“The criticality of proper information management to support and adapt more readily to dynamic business and 
computing demands has elevated market interest and activity in developing stronger information quality and 
governance practices,” said Sandra Rogers, program director, IDC. “The services that HP is announcing are 
targeted at addressing key issues that enable organizations to advance their efforts. One part of this is putting into 
place strong master data practices, an important area that underpins systems and their ability to interact effectively.” 

IDC projects services related to Master Data Management to double from $3 billion in 2006 to $6 billion in 2011.(1) 

“With these new services, customers can better connect intelligence across the organization and make business 
decisions with higher confidence,” said Kristina Robinson, vice president and general manager, Business Intelligence 
Solutions, HP. “Especially during these difficult economic times, HP is 100 percent focused on helping businesses 
address the most important challenges in enterprise data management to help them realize the full value of their 
business intelligence investments.” 

A recent Gartner press release outlined results from the 2008 CIO survey by Gartner Executive Programs (EXP), 
in which more than 1,500 chief information officers (CIOs) revealed that “technology priorities concentrate on 
realizing value from existing assets.” 

According to Gartner, “CIOs expect to invest in business intelligence applications and information consolidation in 
order to raise enterprise visibility and transparency, particularly around sales and operational performance. These 
investments are expected to pay extra dividends by responding to new regulatory and financial reporting requirements.”(2) 

“We need to be able to leverage our data strategically in order to operate more efficiently, effectively and competitively. 
Ultimately, our goal is to improve the health of the communities we serve,” said Darren Taylor, VP, Information Access 
Division, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City. “HP helped us to develop and execute a strategic roadmap for 
managing our information and we now have enterprise data management disciplines that help us to better manage 
information complexity and allow us to realize the full value of our business intelligence investment.” 

HP architected Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City’s information strategy to establish an information 
governance program and implemented its enterprise data warehouse. By doing so, HP was able to help this 
customer realize significant return on investment over several years. Watch Darren Taylor of Blue Cross and Blue 
Shield of Kansas City tell his story: http://hpbroadband.com/program.aspx?key=BIScustomers.

 -- PTADigital.com – a community print portal launched in conjunction with National Parent Teacher Association 
(PTA) that allows students, parents and faculty to easily and cost-effectively create and print customized school 
and home-based merchandise for in-store pickup and mail delivery through PSPs. 

 -- HP Photo Center 4.0 – the newest version of HP’s award-winning, in-store Photo Center solution is designed to 
expand retailers’ businesses with high-margin, high-value photo products for consumers and customized marketing 
collateral for small businesses. 

“Focusing on community groups and working with licensed content providers to drive demand are just two examples 
of how we are building new revenue streams through the power of Print 2.0,” said Stephen Nigro, senior VP, Inkjet 
and Web Solutions business, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. “HP is continually looking at ways to use its robust 
print publishing portfolio to make printing relevant and meaningful to new audiences.” 

Bolstering online publishing assets 

With the HP Image Store, HP is exploring new growth opportunities in the consumer publishing market by combining 
its web, PSP-based and retail on-demand publishing technology with licensed content from popular children’s, sports, 
music and art-photography brands.

do occur. The LeftHand SAS Starter SAN reduces costs and mitigates these performance issues by automatically 
balancing data volumes across all disk drives, network connections and processors. 

The SAS Starter SAN includes management tools that provide replication, thin provisioning and snapshot 
capabilities. These capabilities help ensure data availability even as the environment becomes more complex. 
In addition, customers can purchase only the capacity they need, easily increasing both the capacity and 
performance of their system without experiencing any disruption. The SAS Starter SAN can scale to more than 
80 network ports and 320 disk drives to accommodate business growth. 

“Customers are looking for cost-effective storage solutions that help them realize the promised efficiencies of 
virtualized server environments,” said Bill Chambers, vice president, LeftHand Networks, an HP company. “The 
entry-level SAS Starter SAN gives customers an affordable, high-performing option that allows them to start small 
and add capacity as their needs grow.” 

LeftHand also introduced a higher capacity SATA Starter SAN that offers a 25 percent reduction in the cost per 
gigabyte (GB) of disk drive capacity than the previous generation.(1) The solution’s storage capacity has 
increased 33 percent to 12 terabytes (TB) while maintaining its current list price. The SATA Starter SAN is ideal 
for customers who want to consolidate storage for Microsoft Windows® or Linux servers. 

“Server virtualization environments require new levels of storage system flexibility, performance and reliability,” said 
Keith Groom, director of vendor marketing at Softchoice, an HP reseller. “LeftHand’s SAS Starter SAN provides 
our customers with a cost-effective shared storage solution that offers these requisite capabilities, making it easier 
for customers to deploy virtualization and maximize their investments.” 

Pricing and availability 
The SAS Starter SAN and the higher-capacity SATA Starter SAN are available immediately through LeftHand 
Networks’ resellers and value-added resellers in the U.S. as well as value-added distributors throughout Europe. 

Pricing starts at $35,000 for the 4.8 TB SAS Starter SAN and $30,000 for the 12 TB SATA Starter SAN.(2) 

About LeftHand Networks, an HP company 
Founded in 1999, LeftHand Networks pioneered IP-based storage area networks (SANs). SANs built using 
LeftHand’s SAN/iQ® software are uniquely able to distribute and protect data across a cluster of storage servers. 
The company’s patented architecture increases data availability, allows users to start small and grow the SAN 
seamlessly, and simplifies management. The LeftHand SAN is ideal for storage/server consolidation, virtualized 
data centers, multi-site SANs and disaster recovery. 
More information on LeftHand Networks SAN solutions is available at www.lefthandnetworks.com.

HP Bolsters Adaptive Infrastructure Portfolio, Helps Customers Succeed in a Challenging Economy

HP broadened its Adaptive Infrastructure (AI) portfolio with new software solutions that enable customers to 
reduce costs and improve data center management as they position their businesses for success. 

Today’s announcement spotlights significant enhancements to HP Insight Dynamics – VSE, the industry’s first 
software solution to manage physical and virtual resources in the same way. These include options for Insight 
Orchestration and Insight Recovery, the first in a series of product announcements planned for 2009 that 
represent an increased focus by the company on the HP AI initiative and portfolio. 

With businesses cutting costs, reducing risk and leveraging IT resources to seize greater competitive advantage, 
the HP AI initiative delivers the integrated product and service set needed for comprehensive management and 
24/7, lights-out operations for next-generation technology environments. The proven methodology of HP AI 
enables customers to move from high-cost IT islands to an agile technology infrastructure that delivers real 
value to their businesses. 

“Cost management and agility are top of mind for chief information officers, yet significant portions of technology 
budgets are invested in maintenance instead of innovation,” said Duncan Campbell, vice president, Adaptive
Infrastructure, HP. “HP is building on our AI initiative by delivering offerings to meet challenges customers face 
today as they scrutinize their technology choices, and to help them emerge strong when the economy improves.” 

Advanced software options for reducing costs, mitigating risks 
New enhancements to HP Insight Dynamics – VSE enable data center administrators to rapidly deploy new 
technology to meet changing business needs. 

The new Insight Orchestration option dramatically reduces the time needed to design, configure and deploy new 
technology: 
 -- Administrators can design templates that specify the infrastructure required to run different applications on 
servers, as well as associated storage and network resources. With the push of a button, physical and virtual

HP Integrity servers later this year. 

The new Insight Recovery option lets customers easily restart applications running on physical and virtual servers 
at a remote recovery site with the click of a button: 
 -- Insight Recovery reduces risks associated with downtime by providing cost-effective disaster recovery for 
environments running on either HP BladeSystem servers or VMware virtual machines. 
 -- To resume services quickly, Insight Recovery is integrated with HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array-based 
products running Continuous Access data-replication software with HP ProLiant servers. 

HP Insight Dynamics – VSE now includes enhanced capacity-planning features: 
 -- Software automatically collects and analyzes detailed utilization data from Dell, IBM and other Windows®-based 
x86 servers for rapid migration to HP BladeSystem and HP ProLiant servers. 
 -- By eliminating manual features with the ability to automate data collection and analysis, the software saves time, 
accelerating server consolidation projects. 
 -- Now supports Microsoft® Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, VMware ESX and HP Integrity 
Virtual Machines. 

New flexibility options for the HP Virtual Server Environment for HP Integrity servers include online migration for HP 
Integrity Virtual Machines and the ability to move workloads on physical HP Integrity blade servers with drag-and-
drop ease. 

“By pulling management of all the key infrastructure pieces together across physical servers, virtualization, storage 
and network connectivity using Insight Dynamics – VSE with Orchestration, we are able to streamline operations and 
cut operating costs,” said Richard Wilson, manager, Enterprise Engineering, Continental Airlines. “Continental Airlines’ 
vision is to move toward an IT services model and to a dynamic data center model that is capacity-driven. This 
is the first product we’ve seen that will allow us to make our vision a reality.” 

New Adaptive Infrastructure investment, discovery centers 
Over the past three years, the HP AI initiative has guided the company’s investment in the development of data 
center technologies. As a result, customers have shifted large portions of their IT budgets from maintenance to 
supporting business innovation. 

HP Adaptive Infrastructure Discovery Centers across the globe allow customers to explore next-generation data 
center technologies in-depth and first hand. Four new centers located in Isle d’Abeau, France; Boeblingen, 
Germany; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and Houston join the existing five HP centers around the world.

HP Expands Easy-to-use Virtual Protection Tool, Desktop Linux Offering for Small Business Customers

PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 10, 2008   HP today announced the expansion of its virtualized browsing solution 
across select business desktop products and its plans to introduce Linux as an operating system choice for 
business desktop customers. 

The offerings are designed to help small businesses enhance their productivity and ease their management of 
technology.

The first-of-its-kind Mozilla Firefox for HP Virtual Solution was developed with Symantec and Mozilla for HP 
customers. The solution uses the standard release of Mozilla Firefox with a Symantec Software Virtualization 
Solution layer that allows customers to use the Internet productively while keeping business PCs stable and 
easier to support. 

As customers surf the web, changes made to the PC are contained in a “virtual layer,” separate from the operating 
system, and do not permanently alter the machine. Customers can therefore reset the browser as needed, instantly 
returning the PC to its last-known good state.

Previously offered on the HP Compaq dc7900 Business Desktop PC, this virtual protection tool will soon be

HP Helps Businesses Improve Employee Computing Experience with New Virtual Client Essentials Software

PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 8, 2008   HP today introduced a software portfolio that helps businesses transition 
from traditional, distributed desktop computing to a virtualized client environment while delivering an exceptional 
user experience. 

Building on the company’s expansive client virtualization solutions, HP Virtual Client Essentials is an advanced 
software portfolio that includes multimedia, brokering and streaming solutions. The software is specifically 
designed to deliver rich user experiences in client virtualization environments such as server-based computing, 
HP Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), HP Blade PCs or Workstations, and streaming client environments. 

“A common concern we hear from customers about client virtualization is that there is a perceived trade-off 
between gaining control of a computing environment and maintaining employee productivity and satisfaction,” 
said Roberto Moctezuma, vice president and general manager, Desktop Solutions Organization, HP. “With HP 
Virtual Client Essentials, we’re helping businesses give their employees the personal, rich computing experience
they expect, while making it even easier to secure and manage their client infrastructures through virtualization.” 

The HP Virtual Client Essentials portfolio includes HP Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) Enhancements and HP 
Remote Graphics Software, two protocol options that deliver richer multimedia experiences when deploying 
virtual computing solutions. It also features HP Session Allocation Manager (SAM) – a session broker for remote 
clients that provides connectivity and advanced management capabilities – and HP Image Manager for streaming 
operating systems and applications. 

Power-boosted protocols 
HP RDP Enhancements provides easy, out-of-the box multimedia and USB device support for customers 
standardized on HP thin clients using the Microsoft® Remote Desktop Protocol who want to improve the end-user 
computing experience for employees while maximizing the number of users per server. 

Available next month for all Microsoft Windows® XPe HP thin clients, HP RDP Enhancements will be pre-installed 
and licensed on most HP thin clients to provide users with a single-logon, full-screen virtual desktop experience for 
VMware View and Microsoft Terminal Services using a variety of session brokers. Users simply log in to their virtual 
client session to enjoy real-time, network-based multimedia content with full stereo audio – such as interactive 
training, demos and live webcasts – across a variety of multimedia formats. Linux-based thin client support is 
expected in the near future. 

HP Remote Graphics Software (RGS) is HP’s recommended choice for customers needing secure, high-
performance, collaborative remote desktop access to the richest multimedia and workstation-class applications. 
It can now run on any server or blade-hosted client in VMware data center environments and is available at 
flexible and affordable new license rates based on the user platform. 

HP RGS codec-independent architecture automatically supports and accelerates all current and future multimedia 
formats and applications, including Flash and QuickTime, and now has even broader USB device support, including 
audio and webcam devices, to enable voice-over IP (VoIP) and desktop video conferencing for virtual client deployments. 

Additionally, HP RGS provides expanded, real-time collaboration features to allow multiple professionals working 
from remote locations to see and share content-rich visualizations including 2-D design, 3-D solid modeling, rendering, 
simulation, full-motion video, heavy flash animation and intense Web 2.0 pages. 

HP RGS also allows users to connect with one or many remote systems for access to high-performance applications 
and resources when and where they need them. This feature has been enhanced with multi-session cut, copy 
and paste functionality so information can be moved directly from and to applications running on independent 
Windows desktop machine sessions. 

Seamless desktop session brokering 
HP Session Allocation Manager (SAM) is administrative software that brokers network connections to seamlessly 
connect end users with their virtual client environments. HP SAM is optimized for customers with mixed virtual 
client environments, and offers support for both virtual machine resources and physical, dedicated blade clients. 

With expanded support for PCs and HP thin clients running Linux, Microsoft Windows and thin client operating 
systems, HP SAM also features session timers that measure the users’ CPU activity and allow IT administrators 
to disconnect users from virtual resources after a specified period of inactivity to help maximize compute resource 
sage. Additionally, IT managers can take advantage of HP SAM’s new, enhanced diagnostic tools to check for
common configuration or environmental issues, helping ensure installations and deployments run smoothly. 

For government customers, HP SAM client also now supports secure Common Access Cards used by military 
personnel for single sign-on login to HP RGS and Microsoft RDP connections. 

These new offerings complement the HP streaming client software solution HP Image Manager, as well as the 
full HP portfolio of Client Management Solutions software. 

Pricing,(1) availability and support 
HP RDP Enhancements will be available via download at no additional charge for HP thin clients with Microsoft 
Windows XP Embedded beginning in January 2009. The software is expected to be preloaded as a standard 
offering on most Windows and Linux-based HP thin clients in the first half of the year. 

HP RGS platform-based licensing is now available, priced as follows: 
HP RGS VDI or HP Blade PC – $35 floating license(2) 
HP RGS Blade Workstation – $199 floating license(2) 
HP RGS Desktop – $199 node locked; $495 floating license(2) 
The new HP Session Allocation Manager is available for download at www.hp.com/go/sam for $69 per seat. 

In addition to providing customers the industry’s most robust service and support programs, HP also invites 
customers to visit the HP Remote PC or Thin Client User Forums to discuss, share and learn about best practices 
in client virtualization. 

(1) Estimated U.S. Internet list prices. Actual prices may vary.

(2) Floating license denotes multiple users can log on simultaneously.

HP and NetSuite to Deliver Cloud Computing Solutions to SMB Market

Companies combine product and channel to advance SaaS revolution
 
PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 11, 2008 – HP and NetSuite today announced they are partnering to offer software 
as a service (SaaS) business applications to the small and midsize business (SMB) market.(1) 
The relationship enables the HP channel of 15,000 value-added resellers (VARs) in the United States to offer 
cloud services to SMB customers.

According to AMI Partners, a leading SMB research firm, 62 percent of midsize businesses see customer relationship 
management as strategically important, yet only 14 percent have implemented it due to return on investment pressures 
and limited resources. Further, while 64 percent think enterprise resource planning is important, only 16 percent have 
implemented it for the same reasons.(2) HP’s infrastructure technology and robust channel network combined with 
NetSuite’s hosted SaaS suite offer SMBs an easy-to-implement, reliable business management solution delivering 
an affordable alternative to on-premise solutions in this tough economic environment.

NetSuite’s comprehensive business management suite provides SMBs a single integrated system to manage all 
key business operations, including customer resource management, accounting, enterprise resource planning 
and ecommerce. The company’s cloud-based services use enterprise-class technology to enable real-time insight 
into all aspects of business computing without the typical overhead costs.

Together, HP and NetSuite have developed a referral-based program for HP channel partners. In addition, 
partners can offer new value-added management and implementation services related to the NetSuite Software 
offerings as part of the HP Total Care portfolio of services, software and support that helps SMBs manage, 
protect and grow their business.  

“SMB customers are looking for new ways to avoid up-front technology costs, and on-demand services are the
ideal solution,” said Enrique Lores, senior vice president, Solution Partners Organization and Commercial Sales, 
HP. “Our partnership with NetSuite offers the HP channel network an excellent method for participating in this 
growing SMB market opportunity. They will now have access to the tools they need to stay at the forefront of 
technology with new ways to deliver outstanding service to their SMB customers.” 

“This collaboration with HP will accelerate our penetration of the SMB market worldwide and demonstrate that 
the channel can play a major role in delivering cloud computing solutions,” said Zach Nelson, chief executive 
officer, NetSuite. 

SMBs can have peace of mind knowing that they are supported by their trusted channel partner and that their 
software services are running on high-performance HP ProLiant servers with HP StorageWorks Modular Smart 
Arrays. Services can be scaled up or down to meet the changing needs of businesses, ensuring that they only 
pay for what they need, when they need it. 

HP and NetSuite are increasing the breadth of VAR offerings to include SaaS as well as hardware. As the cloud 
market develops, SMBs will require the ability to use a mix of on-premise and hosted solutions as their needs and 
budgets change.

“The trend toward services delivery by channel partners has been marked in the last several years, and it will 
only continue to increase,” said Christina Richmond, channels analyst, IDC. “Partners must evolve toward a 
more solution-centric approach gradually, while maintaining their core hardware competencies. This offering 
from HP goes a long way toward enabling partners to easily incorporate hardware, software and services 
which, as a solution, will assist the channel in taking the necessary steps to transform their business models 
for the future.”

NetSuite has established dedicated resources to support HP resellers as they bring NetSuite offerings to market, 
including a toll-free hotline for sales support and a self-service portal where resellers can access sales tools and 
online training resources.

New Level of Performance with HP Thin Client and Blade Workstation

HP today introduced a high-performance thin client and blade workstation that provide virtualization customers 
a true workstation experience combined with the security, ease of management and lowered total cost of 
ownership of thin client computing.

Offering significantly more processing and graphics performance, the new HP gt7725 Thin Client and HP ProLiant 
xw2x220c Blade Workstation deliver a leading remote experience for 3D mechanical computer-aided (MCAD) 
applications, rich media, flexibility and performance. 

“The maturation of virtualization technologies, in combination with the reality of today’s business environment, has 
made the security, manageability and flexibility benefits of adopting client virtualization increasingly attractive to 
business customers,” said Roberto Moctezuma, vice president and general manager, Desktop Solutions Organization, 
HP. “This latest technology from HP removes one of the last remaining barriers to transitioning to a virtual client 
infrastructure for customers who require the highest levels of processing power or high-quality multimedia capabilities.”

HP offers customers the most comprehensive portfolio of remote client solutions – from entry level to high end – 
so they can build out their IT infrastructures to quickly adapt to changing business needs. The company’s client 
virtualization portfolio includes thin clients, blade PCs, blade workstations and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure 
solutions. The portfolio helps business customers dramatically reduce security risks and management and support 
costs by centralizing computing hardware and sensitive data within the data center. 

Powerful remote computing with enhanced graphics 
The most powerful in the HP thin client portfolio, the high-performance HP gt7725 Thin Client improves worker 
productivity with enhanced graphics support and faster application run times, while also helping to ensure greater 
security, reliability and ease of management and lower total cost of ownership compared to traditional desktops. 

Customers in financial service organizations or on trading floors can benefit from the thin client’s support of up to 
four monitors – standard, widescreen or touchscreen – allowing real-time visibility to critical market data applications 
across multiple displays. 

Additionally, the gt7725 can be used for viewing multi-display, two- and three-dimensional MCAD designs, engineering 
simulation results for computational fluid dynamics and rendering images for oil and gas exploration. The thin client’s 
space-saving design and enhanced graphic capabilities are ideal for control and dispatch centers, and also a cost-
effective means for multiple output of digital information, media-rich content and streaming video.

Based on the AMD Turion™ Dual Core(1) 2.3-GHz processor, the gt7725 provides users the horsepower to deliver 
the full blade workstation experience with the footprint of a thin client at the desktop. With AMD RS780G
integrated graphics (ATI Radeon™ HD 3200 Graphics) and multi-display support, users can view their work on as 
many as four displays to maximize desktop space and collaborate more effectively. The multi-display rotation allows 
for portrait or landscape orientations on 24- or 30-inch diagonal monitors. The thin client’s advanced resolution 
supports 2,560 x 1,600 pixels per display with two monitors, or 1,920 x 1,200 pixels per display with four monitors. 

Advanced system performance is also achieved through configured dual channel memory with optimized data 
throughput. Initially available with HP ThinPro based on the Linux operating system, the gt7725 also is expected 
to support the latest Microsoft® thin client operating systems in the coming year, including Windows® Embedded 
Standard 2009.

“HP’s new gt7725 is an impressive example of how endpoint devices can integrate with client virtualization to 
offer a high-performance graphics experience to demanding power users, while simultaneously offering the cost 
benefits of thin clients,” said Raj Dhingra, group vice president and general manager, Desktop Delivery Group, Citrix. 
“Together with Citrix XenDesktop and our advanced graphics rendering technologies, the gt7725 enables IT to 
centrally deliver desktops and applications to more types of workers, even those that need a ‘high-definition’ user 
experience with cutting-edge graphics and Web 2.0 technologies.”

Data center workstation computing without boundaries
The HP ProLiant xw2x220c Blade Workstation advances data center workstation computing by combining two 
workstation platforms into a single half-height blade package with mission-critical security and business continuity.

The xw2x220c, which executes user applications and resides in the data center, is designed to deliver maximum 
performance at a more affordable price for customers in fields such as financial services and MCAD. The blade 
can be configured with one or two high-speed Intel® Xeon® processors(2) and a dedicated NVIDIA FX 770M 
hardware graphics card that computes and renders the interactive desktop image. 

Customers using the gt7725 or xw2x220c also can use preinstalled HP Remote Graphics software, a network 
utility designed to take full advantage of the compute and graphics resources of the HP thin client and blade 
workstation. The software enables professional artists, financial analysts, engineers and designers to work closely 
with remote teams in a more secure, collaborative environment and eliminates the need to upgrade to an expensive 
3D graphics card on each user’s machine. 

HP Remote Graphics software works seamlessly over a standard computer network with complex applications, 
including 2D design, 3D solid modeling, rendering, simulation full motion video, heavy flash animation, intense 
Web 2.0 pages and USB peripheral support. 

Pricing and availability(3)
The HP gt7725 Thin Client is expected to be available worldwide in January at a starting U.S. list price of $749, 
while the HP ProLiant xw2x220c Blade Workstation is expected to be available worldwide on Nov. 17 at a starting 
U.S. list price of $2,850 per user blade. 

(1) This system requires a separately purchased 64-bit operating system and 64-bit software products to take 
advantage of the 64-bit processing capabilities of AMD technology. Dual-core processing available with AMD 
technology is designed to improve performance of this system. Given the wide range of software applications 
available, performance of a system including a 64-bit operating system and a dual-core processor will vary.

(2) 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating 
system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 
32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on hardware 
and software configurations.

HP Delivers Business Solutions for Smaller Retailers, Desktop Power Users

HP today announced the expansion of its business systems portfolio to include advanced point-of-sale solutions 
for the small to midsized retail market, new business desktop PCs with enhanced performance and security, and 
HP Total Care service and support.

Easy to set up and use, the new HP rp3000 Point of Sale (POS) solution offers small to midsized retailers 
functionality that far exceeds the point-of-sale capabilities and lifespan of a standard PC or traditional electronic 
cash register. 

The top-of-the-line HP Compaq dc7900 business desktop series includes security, productivity and power-saving 
features to provide business power users a reliable computing experience that can handle the most demanding 
workloads.

“HP continues to deliver the innovative computing solutions needed to drive a successful business – providing 
reliable products and stronger security, along with support services and custom solutions that help our customers 
stay focused on their business instead of the technology that runs it,” said Jeri Callaway, senior vice president, 
Personal Systems Group, HP.

“As the hub of all in-store transactions, customers require a trusted vendor for retail POS solutions that provide 
security, reliability and durability,” said Greg Buzek, founder and president, IHL Group, a global research and 
advisory firm based in Franklin, Tenn. “HP is positioned as one of the new leaders in the POS market because it 
provides retailers – small, midsized and large – an easy-to-manage, hardened solution, without breaking their budget.”

HP expands POS portfolio with space-saving new design for small to midsized businesses
HP offers retail businesses of all sizes a comprehensive portfolio of hardware, software and services to help build 
an in-store technology solution. The HP rp3000 Point of Sale system and new POS peripheral offerings build on 
the success of the award-winning HP rp5700 Point of Sale solution, geared toward enterprises. 

Designed from the ground up based on input from small- to medium-sized and independent retailers, the space-saving
rp3000 helps manage multiple aspects of their operations to help save time and money. For example, a variety of 
point-of-sale software applications can be used to help manage inventory, speed up transactions, track employee time 
cards, and track customer shopping habits for gift card and discount promotions.

Sleekly styled, the rp3000 uses only industry-standard technologies, making it an affordable, easier-to-manage 
platform compared to expensive, proprietary POS systems. Only two power outlets are needed per system, including 
power for the monitor and all peripherals, with powered serial and USB ports standard to eliminate cable clutter. 
Color-coded input/output ports simplify set up and present a clean back panel to customers. 

The retail-hardened rp3000 features the low-power and low-heat Intel® Atom processor and a durable steel
chassis to stand up to the wear and tear of a merchant’s day-to-day business activity. An energy-efficient, 
oversized cooling system helps enable a longer life cycle and more continuous performance in busy retail 
environments, with the unit capable of operating in an ambient 40°C environment (versus an average ambient 
35°C environment for business PCs), eliminating the need for additional external cooling in extended-use scenarios. 

HP’s new portfolio of retail peripherals includes a keyboard with integrated credit card reader, a free-standing 
credit card reader that can be attached to select HP flat panel monitors or touch screens and customer display 
pole. HP also introduced three new retail printers, including a single-station, two-color and monochrome thermal 
printer and two hybrid thermal printers that can print two-color or monochrome receipts and offer impact slip 
printing for inserted forms and checks. One model also provides digital imaging functionality.

A rugged, 15-inch diagonal, flat-panel touch screen monitor and heavy-duty cash drawer also are available, 
along with a durable, lightweight handheld scanner with a hands-free IntelliStand™. The system and its optional 
peripherals are neatly and safely contained on the rp3000 Integration Tray.

All POS solutions from HP are backed by HP Total Care service and support, including standard three-year 
warranty covering parts, labor and onsite support. HP’s industry relationships with key retail integrated software 
vendors and extensive reseller channel also ensure integration of services, support and retail expertise across 
virtually every industry and local market.

The HP rp3000 Point of Sale Solution is expected to be available on Sept. 30 through HP authorized resellers 
for a starting list price of $699.(1)  

Business-class PC with stronger security, energy efficiency 
Whether in the back office of the largest retailer or on the desk of a chief executive officer, the new HP Compaq 
dc7900 Business Desktop PC series offers power-packed performance with up to 87-percent-efficient power 
supplies. It also is ENERGY STAR® 4.0 qualified and Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool 
(EPEAT™) Gold registered. 

Energy-conscious businesses additionally can use HP Power Manager to personalize their PCs’ power settings 
for an optimal mix of performance and conservation, ultimately reducing their PCs’ energy usage and 
environmental impact. 

With the new HP Firefox Virtual Browser, customers can surf the Internet and know that if they are attacked by 
malicious software, it only takes one click to undo the attack. This virtualized run-time environment corrals 
malicious content from a user’s Internet interactions and removes unwanted programs with a single click, 
potentially limiting the need to conduct a scan, repair and reinstall of applications and security settings. 

Customers also can personalize their levels of data protection with two new features in the HP ProtectTools 
security suite. Privacy Manager allows customers to securely exchange emails with a digital signature, while File 
Sanitizer allows customers to easily and permanently remove data from a PC prior to disposal.

The HP Compaq dc7900 Business Desktop PC series comes in ultra-slim desktop, small form factor or convertible 
minitower models. 

To additionally reduce operating costs, the HP Total Care Green to Gold CD(2) – available for $1 with any 
SmartBuy purchase – offers customers up to $75 worth of services such as HP Upline, HP Power Manager and 
HP Recycling Service.(3) More information about the CD is available at www.hp.com/go/greentogold.

The HP Compaq dc7900 Business Desktop PC is expected to be available worldwide at later this month at a 
starting U.S. list price of $599.(1)

HP Encourages CIOs to Rethink Virtualization in Business Terms

New offerings vastly simplify virtualization implementation, management

HP today announced new products, services and solutions designed to simplify the implementation and 
management of virtualization so that the technology delivers greater business value.

Recent global research conducted on behalf of HP revealed that while 86 percent of technology decision makers 
have implemented virtualization projects, the vast majority of respondents expect to have virtualized just 25 percent 
of their technology environments by 2010.(1) 

While many of those surveyed anticipate eventually reaching 75 percent virtualization of their total environments, 
only one-third of these technology implementers recognize virtualization as a valuable business tool. Two-thirds 
of implementers relegate virtualization to the role of technology enabler.

“Virtualization is a powerful step in transforming IT,” said Ann Livermore, executive vice president, Technology 
Solutions Group, HP. “To do it right means successfully managing and automating mixed physical and virtual 
environments. HP delivers the industry’s broadest portfolio for virtualized environments, covering applications 
and operations management, infrastructure and client architectures.” 

HP’s approach to virtualization is focused on removing the technology inhibitors that reduce virtualization’s 
impact on the business. It highlights how applications and business services can perform well regardless of 
where and how they are hosted, networked or managed. It dramatically simplifies management across a combined 
virtual and physical world, and it addresses the issue of pooling infrastructure resources across an organization.

HP’s new offerings support business needs that span the desktop to the data center. They are focused on 
lowering operational cost, mitigating the risk of a heterogeneous environment and freeing resources to deliver 
new business services. These offerings are designed around three specific areas: applications and operations 
management, overcoming infrastructure barriers, and maximizing client architectures. 

Rethink … applications and operations management
HP Business Service Management (BSM) and IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions have been enhanced 
with new virtualization monitoring and support capabilities to seamlessly link business services to the physical 
and virtual resources that deliver and manage them. This leads to faster deployments, lower costs and quicker 
problem resolution. 

--HP Operations Agent, HP Performance Agent and HP SiteScope have been enhanced with hypervisor 
management capabilities, including the ability to collect management data to automate event and availability 
monitoring and management processes across heterogeneous infrastructures. 

--HP Network Node Manager i-series has been updated to monitor the performance and availability of networks 
supporting dynamic, virtualized environments. This allows customers to proactively plan and monitor network capacity. 

--New HP Asset Manager identifies and manages virtual machine asset inventory and licenses, allowing customers 
to pay for only the licenses they need. 

--A new strategic development agreement with Red Hat simplifies the monitoring and management of virtualized 
environments. 

--New and enhanced HP Virtualization Support Services achieve a smooth transition to, and ongoing management 
of, new virtualization technology while reducing the risk of unplanned downtime. 

Rethink … infrastructure barriers 
Current infrastructure was not designed to take complete advantage of virtualization. New HP offerings are 
esigned to lower costs, mitigate the risk of downtime and free up resources that can drive additional business 
services to support growth. 

--The HP ProLiant BL495c virtualization blade is the world’s first server blade designed specifically to host virtual 
machines. The BL495c eliminates key virtualization performance bottlenecks of memory, data storage and network 
connections. 

--HP StorageWorks 4400 Scalable NAS File Services integrates the HP StorageWorks 4400 Enterprise Virtual Array, 
file servers, management software, and Microsoft Windows® or Linux support to virtualize the connection between 
servers and storage. The solution lowers maintenance costs and mitigates the risk of data loss with advanced 
replication software. 

--HP-UX 11i V3 and the HP Virtual Server Environment have been enhanced for mission-critical virtualization with 
significant performance improvement, automated optimization, improved protection and simplified management capabilities. 

--HP Virtualization Accelerator Services are new, predefined consulting services for planning, designing and 
implementing virtualization initiatives. This yields a faster return on investment. 

Rethink … client architectures
Businesses can leverage client virtualization to achieve greater reliability, security and improved management of 
end-user computing. This decreases the cost of client management and support while increasing productivity. 

--The new HP t5630, t5545, t5540 and t5145 Thin Clients feature scratch-resistant HP DuraFinish and provide 
expanded multimedia features, enhanced brokering capabilities, greater performance and improved management 
support. 

--The HP ProLiant xw460c Blade Workstation with Graphics Expansion Blade supports a full range of graphics 
capability with the latest NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics. This provides more secure, easily managed data center 
workstation computing for the financial trading, public sector, mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD), and oil 
and gas segments. 

--Enhancements to the HP Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution include new planning, quick-start and 
implementation services. These services determine specific VDI needs and associated business value, so 
customers can implement the right solutions. HP also unveiled the new HP VDI with Citrix XenDesktop, which is 
designed to enable everything from smaller, entry-level implementations to enterprise-wide desktop delivery. 

--“Citrix Ready” blade PCs and thin clients are now certified for use within Citrix XenDesktop environments. They 
deliver a dedicated one-to-one remote computing experience at radically improved economics for knowledge 
workers requiring a broad range of application support and a rich graphics experience.

HP Lightens the Load for Business Travelers

HP today introduced three ultra-portable notebook computers, including a three-pound(1) EliteBook, the smallest 
and lightest HP notebook with a built-in optical drive.

Inspired by aircraft construction and designed for style-conscious mobile professionals, the HP EliteBook 2530p 
features the sleek and durable HP DuraCase – a brushed, anodized aluminum exterior casing combined with a 
magnesium alloy chassis that is engineered to pass several military-standard durability tests such as extreme 
temperature, dust and humidity.(2) 

The HP EliteBook 2730p is an ultra-thin, convertible tablet that – with a twist of the screen – transforms from an 
ultra-light notebook PC into a pen-based tablet. The value-priced HP Compaq 2230s rounds out one of the most 
comprehensive ultra-portable notebook lineups in the industry.

“HP continues to distinguish the EliteBook brand with sophisticated, innovative designs that combine military-
standard durability with easy-to-use features and the right levels of performance,” said Keith LeFebvre, vice 
president and general manager, Business Notebooks, Personal Systems Group – Americas, HP. “These great-
looking notebooks can withstand the rigors of the road, meet the most demanding tasks and keep up with the 
ever-changing mobile lifestyle.”

New notebooks for the corporate road warrior 
The HP EliteBook series incorporates the latest Intel® processors, solid-state hard drives and the most up-to-date 
wireless technologies, making them ideal for the business user on the go.

Offering the latest Intel technology for extended battery life and enhanced system performance, HP EliteBooks 
also support Intel Core™ 2 Duo(3) ultra-low-voltage (ULV) or low-voltage (LV) processors to optimize performance 
and minimize power consumption. 

The two new EliteBook models feature an optional integrated 2 megapixel webcam with business card reader 
software, and an integrated HP NightLight that shines on the keyboard to improve visibility in low light. A shock-
resistant hard drive and spill-resistant keyboard, standard with the HP EliteBook series, help defend data against 
bumps, drops and spills.

HP EliteBook 2530p Notebook PC – For the business professional on the go, HP’s smallest and lightest-weight 
business notebook offers performance in a 3.19-pound package. (1) The 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen HP 
Illumi-Lite LED display is lighter than standard notebook display technology and improves battery life by up to 90 
minutes.(4) 

The HP EliteBook 2530p offers the choice of an ultra-small 1.8-inch hard drive with a built-in optical drive or a 
higher-capacity 2.5-inch hard drive. For added protection against bang-ups, the inner magnesium shell of the 
notebook’s HP DuraCase is equipped with a honeycomb pattern that is thermally bonded to anodized aluminum 
for a solid construction to withstand active day-to-day use on the road.

HP EliteBook 2730p Notebook PC – This high-performing, ultra-thin, convertible tablet sports an innovative design 
and weighs in at only 3.7 pounds.(1) Rotating the screen transforms it into a pen-based tablet measuring only 
1.11-inches thin. New features include an integrated touchpad, tablet buttons and a jog dial. Frequent travelers 
can take advantage of the optional ultra-slim battery accessory that offers up to 12 combined hours of battery life.(4) 
The HP EliteBook 2730p also supports a convenient, ultra-slim docking solution with an integrated DVD+/-RW drive.

Style and affordability
Stylish and powerful, the 4.07-pound(1) HP Compaq 2230s Notebook PC offers a 12.1-inch diagonal widescreen 
display and a satin, reflective, black-on-black surface. With the Wi-Fi-certified wireless local area network (WLAN) 
and integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology, mobile professionals can send and receive emails or access the 
Internet – at work, at home or at their favorite hotspots.(5) This modernized classic business notebook includes HP 
3D DriveGuard, which uses a three-axis accelerometer to detect sudden movement and initiate protective action, 
helping safeguard the hard drive against bumps or drops.

Security options on energy-efficient notebooks
All HP business notebooks are designed with the environment in mind, offering energy-efficient features and select 
materials for easier recycling. Both the EliteBook 2530p and 2730p have an Electronic Product Environmental 
Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Gold rating and feature a mercury-free Illumi-Lite LED display, which is lighter and more 
energy-efficient than standard notebook display technology. HP has set a goal to remove all mercury – a potentially 
hazardous substance commonly found in notebook screens – from its notebooks by 2010. 

The notebooks feature HP Mobile Broadband with built-in Gobi technology from Qualcomm and use a single module, 
the HP un2400, to support multiple mobile broadband network technologies and mobile operators. This increases 
users’ international roaming options and offers greater choice and flexibility in choosing a mobile data plan.(6) 

Included HP QuickLook 2 software provides access to email, calendar, task and contact information within seconds 
at the touch of a button with no need to boot the operating system.(7) HP SpareKey addresses the hassle of 
forgotten passwords by using a sequence of three predetermined personal identification questions to gain entry 
into the system.(8)

All of the new notebook models are loaded with strong security features, including HP ProtectTools Security Manager 
and Drive Encryption for HP ProtectTools, which encodes information on the hard drive to make sensitive information 
unreadable if a notebook is lost or stolen. For added data security, the built-in File Sanitizer permanently deletes 
individual files, folders and personally identifiable information from the notebook, allowing customers to recycle the 
notebook with confidence that their business data has been removed. 

Pricing and availability(9)
The HP EliteBook 2530p and HP EliteBook 2730p are expected to be available by early September, with estimated 
starting U.S. street pricing of $1,499 and $1,670, respectively. 

The HP Compaq 2230s is currently available at an estimated starting U.S. street price of $999.

HP Brings TouchSmart PC Within Reach for the Masses

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 14, 2008 

HP today announced that the latest HP TouchSmart PCs – the only touch-enabled, all-in-one PCs in the 
marketplace – are now available through consumer electronics retailers nationwide.

Debuted at last month’s HP Connecting Your World event in Berlin, the new TouchSmart family of PCs has 
earned accolades for its transformative effect on the way people engage with computers and their photos, 
music, movies and other digital content. 

Consumers simply touch, tap or sweep a finger across the screen of the TouchSmart PC to access information, 
entertainment and social networks in a natural, intuitive way. Without using a keyboard or mouse, consumers 
can play music and create playlists; crop, edit and share photos; and easily check the weather or watch TV.(1)

Reviewers have praised the new HP TouchSmart PC for its breakthrough touch-enabled software and the all-in-
one design that allows the PC to fit wherever life happens. The PC’s piano-black finish and sleek design makes
it an elegant addition to any room. 

“The new TouchSmart PCs turn digital entertainment into a compelling, hands-on experience and can create a 
social media hub within a den, living room or home office,” said John Cook, vice president, Marketing, Worldwide 
Consumer PC Business, HP. “No other PC on the market offers this type of fun, engaging and simple touch 
experience or this level of interaction with digital media. The TouchSmart re-invents the personal computing 
experience for the home.”

Digital entertainment at your fingertips 
Requiring only a power cord for set up, HP TouchSmart PCs combine a 22-inch diagonal, high-definition(2) 
widescreen display with a powerful, energy-efficient Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor(3) in a single, integrated design. 

While providing all the capabilities of a traditional PC, select models also offer an array of entertainment features, 
including a TV tuner for watching and recording TV shows,(4) a built-in DVD burner(5) and integrated premium 
stereo speakers. A built-in webcam and microphone help users keep in touch with friends and family over the
Internet through video chat and conference.(6)

A low-profile wireless keyboard, wireless mouse and integrated WLAN(7) offer a truly clutter-free, wireless 
experience; and the PC’s adjustable screen tilts up and down for maximum viewing comfort. The HP Ambient 
Light lets people set mood lighting and see the keyboard in the dark.

“The HP All-in-One TouchSmart is set to revolutionize the desktop PC market,” said Jeff McCrea, vice president 
and general manager, Consumer PC Platform Group, Intel Corporation. “With its new touch screen capability, 
sleek design and the powerful, energy-efficient Intel Core 2 duo processor, your digital world is truly now at your 
fingertips.”

Environmentally responsible
HP works to reduce the environmental impact of its products by reducing the amount of materials used in both 
the products and packaging. HP TouchSmart PCs are ENERGY STAR® qualified and use a new all-cardboard 
packaging design that reduces the use of plastic-foam cushioning materials.(8) The next-generation chassis 
design uses 55 percent less metal and 37 percent less plastic than standard PCs and monitors.(9) HP also offers 
responsible and convenient reuse and recycling services globally. 

Delivering energy efficiency with advanced power management features, HP technology can help users reduce
PC energy use up to 45 percent by saving up to 86 kilowatt hours(10) per year. 

Unparalleled service and support
HP provides award-winning service and support for its products, available around the clock by phone or email 
and online. Every TouchSmart PC comes with toll-free telephone support at +1 866 408 5408, a number dedicated 
to premium products like the TouchSmart PC for quick access to support agents specifically trained on the product. 

In addition, the TouchSmart PC offers a desktop icon with one-click access to troubleshooting tools, downloads 
and online technical support options such as email and real-time chat.

Pricing and availability
The HP TouchSmart IQ504 PC and the TV-tuner equipped HP TouchSmart IQ506 PC are available starting 
at $1,299 and $1,499, respectively.(11) Customers can shop for the TouchSmart PCs by calling 800 230 5752, 
via chat, online or at retail outlets nationwide. More information is available at www.hp.com/touchsmart.

HP Introduces New Software to Automate Business Service Changes and Problem Resolution

HP today announced new Business Technology Optimization (BTO) software and Software-as-a-Service 
offerings to help IT organizations manage change and resolve problems across business services and 
applications, dramatically reducing the risk of potential business downtime. 

The BTO software offerings enable customers to fully automate the entire change life cycle by bringing together 
the process and execution of changes such as application upgrades and infrastructure modifications. Depending 
on the size of a business, the number of technology changes occurring can range anywhere from hundreds to 
tens of thousands per week.

A major risk in managing change comes from the failure to identify potential conflicts or change collisions during 
the change review process and during execution. This results in business service downtime. HP’s enhanced 
decision-support solution, HP Release Control, formerly HP Change Control Management, now further reduces
this risk by providing real-time visibility of all change activity. 

HP also introduced new integrations of business transaction management and problem isolation technologies to 
help customers quickly identify problems before they impact business services. By tracing issues from the end 
user to the infrastructure component, these solutions accelerate the problem isolation and resolution process. 

These new Business Service Management offerings, combined with a new ITIL V3-based Configuration 
Management System (CMS) solution, provide customers a broader view of information about business services. 
This enables them to better manage the entire change life-cycle process to quickly identify and resolve business 
service issues. 

These new offerings are being demonstrated live at HP Software Universe, the company’s annual customer and 
partner event focused on its software business. 

“Managing the myriad of changes related to a major IT project would have been impossible using manual change 
processes and spreadsheets,” said Sheila Bridge, senior director, IT Global Compliance and Controls, Kellogg 
Company. “With the HP integrated solution, including HP Universal CMDB software, we not only successfully 
completed our major IT project on schedule, but we did so while maintaining perfect availability.” 

In a recent Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) survey of 1,125 IT leaders worldwide, one out of four respondents 
said that 50 percent of their outages were caused by change. The EIU study also revealed that the majority of 
respondents agree that automation makes IT changes more predictable and consistent. 

According to the analyst firm Gartner, “Ensuring high availability requires making controlled changes while 
preserving the integrity and service quality of the production environment. Enterprises can’t achieve this quality 
without effective IT change, configuration and release management processes.”(1)

New solutions to automate the change life cycle
HP Release Control software, with new integrations across the HP Business Service Automation portfolio, helps 
customers make better change approval decisions and provides real-time visibility into change activity enabling 
customers to identify change conflicts during execution. By linking change process management to release 
execution, the software helps minimize service disruptions and lower the risk of change. 

HP Consulting and Integration services are available to help customers automate change and configuration, as 
well as service asset and release management. These services leverage the HP Service Management Reference 
Model, which is based on ITIL V3 and best practices from more than 15 years of customer engagements. 

New solutions to automate problem isolation and resolution
With Business Availability Center 7.5, HP provides integrated business transaction management and advanced 
problem isolation to help IT better align with business priorities. By directly linking end-user experience to network 
path performance for faster resolution and more proactive management, customers can proactively manage and 
ensure consistent service quality. 

Industry’s first ITIL V3-based Configuration Management System solution
Traditional approaches to providing a consolidated view of how IT delivers business services are insufficient. 
Static configuration management databases are unable to support the real-time needs of today’s complex 
technology environments. 

Recognizing these limitations, ITIL V3, co-authored by HP, recommends a federated, or data-sharing, approach 
for delivering a complete configuration management system. The new HP Configuration Management System 
solution helps break down information barriers across organizational silos, providing the right information in the 
right context to the right person. 

“With customers demanding 24/7 access to transactions and services, IT operations can no longer afford costly 
service disruptions caused by mismanaged change,” said Ben Horowitz, vice president and general manager, 
Business Technology Optimization, Software, HP. “We deliver the complete solution that provides a consolidated 
view of change operations for impact assessment, improved decision support, change collaboration, automated 
execution and release.”

HP BTO Software as a Service offerings 
HP Software-as-a-Service offers customers a means to quickly and cost-effectively leverage the benefits of 
HP BTO software. HP SaaS is a managed service delivered through the Internet that helps customers maximize 
the full value of HP software products via best practices and ongoing support. HP Business Availability Center 7.5, 
Release Control 4.0 and UCMDB 7.5 will be offered through HP SaaS in July.

HP Fuses Style and Mobility for Consumers and Business with Largest-ever Notebook Introduction

HP today marked the broadest and most innovative notebook rollout in its history with the introduction of 16 
new models designed with new materials and software features that enrich the user experience. 

Unveiled at its Connecting Your World event, the newly redesigned notebook families are available in an array 
of sizes and configurations – including the all-new HP EliteBook premium series – providing a broad selection of 
mobile computing options to meet the personal style and performance needs of most anyone. 

“HP is creating notebook computers that captivate users with striking design and the right features to deliver a 
great user experience,” said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Notebook Global Business 
Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP. “Our new lineup further enhances our brand leadership with notebooks that 
are tailored for the ever-changing mobile lifestyle.” 

HP’s new lineup of consumer notebooks features the sleek new liquid-metallic HP Imprint 2 surface design, while 
the durable, aircraft-inspired HP EliteBook is one of 10 additions to the company’s business notebook portfolio.

HP notebooks are designed with the environment in mind, with energy-efficient features and select materials for 
easier recycling. For example, several HP notebooks are available with the choice of an optional mercury-free 
Illumi-Lite LED display,(1) which is lighter and more energy efficient than standard notebook display technology. 
HP has set a goal to remove all mercury – a material commonly found in notebook screens – from its entire 
notebook line by the end of 2010.

The HP notebook lineup is also one of the first to offer a choice of the latest processor technologies, including 
AMD Turion™ 64 X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processors(2) and the Intel® Centrino® 2 and Intel Centrino 2 with 
vPro technology.(3,4)

HP consumer notebooks deliver exquisite design and powerful entertainment
HP Pavilion Entertainment notebooks set a new standard in notebook design with unexpected innovations such 
as invisible “magic chrome” controls that light up and become fully interactive upon power up, and intuitive, one-
click access to high-definition TV,(5,6) photos, movies and music from nearly any location through HP QuickPlay. 

Smooth lines, optional HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen flush-glass screens, along with color-matched keyboards 
and touch pads create a frameless, thin and elegant appearance.

Previously available only in HP business-class notebooks, HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection is now built 
into the new HP Pavilion notebook series targeting consumers. This technology automatically detects if a 
notebook has been dropped and, while the notebook is on its journey to the floor, automatically stops the hard 
drive from spinning, helping to prevent the loss of files and data. The series also offers consumers the option of
a high-speed eSATA interface for backing up data to external storage drives. 

Style made simple and affordable 
Designed for those on the go, the versatile HP Compaq Presario notebook PC line includes a new industrial 
design and HP Imprint 2 surface finish, a range of optical drives, built-in wireless(7) technologies and high-quality 
audio, webcam and analog microphone capabilities. 

To help users personalize their notebook experiences, HP also introduced a number of mobile accessories, 
including the HP xb4 Notebook Media Docking Station and HP Bluetooth® Stereo Headphones with active 
noise cancellation. 

Elite mobile professionals 
For the mobile professional who wants to make a statement, the premium HP EliteBook features the sleek and 
durable HP DuraCase – a brushed anodized aluminum exterior casing combined with a magnesium alloy chassis 
engineered to meet MIL-STD 810F military-standard(8) durability tests.

The HP EliteBook is built for the corporate road warrior, with a protective coating of anodized aluminum on the 
palm-rest surface that is six times more scratch-resistant than that used in previous notebooks. These materials 
also are highly recyclable, facilitating environmentally responsible disposal at end of life.

Designed with the latest mobile technologies, the HP EliteBook also features HP QuickLook 2 software, HP 
SpareKey and HP File Sanitizer for the ultimate in convenience and security, as well as shock-resistant hard 
drive and spill-resistant keyboard to help protect data against bumps, drops and spills. 

The initial ENERGY STAR® qualified HP EliteBook configuration weighs only 4.7 pounds (2.1 kilograms). It 
features a 14.1-inch diagonal widescreen display and is available with an optional mercury-free Illumi-Lite LED 
display.(1) Setting a new standard for on-the-move productivity, the HP EliteBook 6930p provides up to 15 
hours(9) of combined battery life with optional Ultra Capacity battery. 

Business-critical mobility
The newly redesigned business notebook “b”-series is distinguished by its silver finish and magnesium alloy 
support structure. The new design offers an ideal combination of features for mainstream business mobility, in a 
choice of 14.1-inch or 15.4-inch diagonal displays with Intel or AMD processors.

The standard “s”-series features a satin, reflective, black-on-black finish to modernize the look and feel of the 
classic business notebook. HP s-series notebooks are loaded with strong security features, including HP 
ProtectTools Security Manager. Drive Encryption for HP ProtectTools encodes information on the hard drive to 
make sensitive information unreadable if a notebook is lost or stolen. 

For added data security, s-series notebooks feature HP File Sanitizer as well as HP 3D DriveGuard, which uses 
a three-axis accelerometer to detect sudden movement and initiate protective action, helping protect the 
notebook’s hard drive against bumps or drops.

Pricing and availability
Shipping dates will vary by region and are expected to begin in July. 

More information on product specifications and pricing on these HP notebook PCs and other HP mobility 
solutions is available in an online press kit at www.hp.com/go/connectingyourworld2008.

as of the end of each company's 2007 fiscal year, had annual revenues of more than $38 billion and 210,000 
employees, doing business in more than 80 countries.

HP intends to establish a new business group, to be branded EDS - an HP company, which will be head-

n the form of a significant premium to our stock price. It's also beneficial to our customers, as the combination of 
our two global companies and the collective skills of our employees will drive innovation and enhance value for 
them in a wide range of industries. In addition, our Agility Alliance will be significantly strengthened." 

Acquiring EDS advances HP's stated objective of strengthening its services business. The specific service

HP Extends Quality and Management Software to Meet New Requirements for Mainstream SOA Adoption

HP today introduced new and enhanced quality and management software designed to increase the success 
of mainstream deployment of service-oriented architectures (SOA) by businesses. 

SOA is an approach to delivering IT services in a secure and manageable way that uses loosely connected, 
reusable and standards-based technology that can be quickly aligned to changing business needs.

For SOA to be broadly adopted and deliver business value, an entire organization must have confidence that the 
services it provides function correctly, scale as demand increases and meet operational requirements. 

To make certain that services meet all functional and performance objectives and are ready for production 
deployment, HP introduced new versions of its market-leading SOA testing products, HP Service Test and HP 
Service Test Management. 

“Customers who want to scale their SOA-based deployments recognize they must make SOA a seamless part of 
their quality and management infrastructure to support business requirements,” said Tim Hall, director of SOA 
products, Software, HP. “HP delivers an integrated solution that includes SOA governance, quality and management. 
Our modular approach gives customers the confidence to quickly progress from initial SOA pilots through to
enterprise-scale deployments.” 

In addition, HP announced new SOA management capabilities with HP Business Availability Center for SOA, 
HP Diagnostics for SOA and HP SOA Policy Enforcer that together better monitor services in production, resolve 
operational issues and deal with changes to services. 

These software products accelerate enterprise SOA adoption by providing assurances that services meet or 
exceed design and operational specifications. By integrating these solutions across the complete service lifecycle 
of planning, quality and operations, customers have confidence that services can be trusted to support critical 
business applications without risk of failure or performance degradation. 

“As SOA becomes an increasingly mainstream approach to enterprise architecture, HP continues to offer 
governance, quality and management products that form essential SOA infrastructure,” said Jason Bloomberg, 
managing partner at SOA advisory firm ZapThink. “HP’s new SOA testing and management products provide the 
framework enterprises require to ensure IT delivers production-ready services that can support business-critical
applications and processes, making it easier for Quality Management and Operations groups to support SOA-
based applications while leveraging existing IT investments and talent.”

HP Quality Management for SOA 
HP’s Quality Management solutions for SOA give enterprises the assurance that services will function reliably in 
any deployment environment. New capabilities to these solutions include: 

HP Service Test Management – enables quality assurance teams to plan, design and execute quality management 
activities from a service-oriented perspective. HP Service Test Management allows teams to instantly report on 
the pre-production quality of all SOA-based services. It also integrates with HP SOA Systinet to automatically use 
quality management metrics to alert managers and users that services are ready for consumption. 

HP Service Test – enables functional testing of SOA services to reduce the risk of application failures. Testing is 
fully integrated with HP’s extended software portfolio to ensure ongoing quality and management across the 
service lifecycle. 

HP SOA management 
HP’s SOA management solutions will work standalone for small SOA projects or large-scale deployments and 
fully integrate with enterprise IT management capabilities. This flexibility gives SOA architects the confidence that 
initial SOA project efforts will be embraced by IT operations groups as services adoption increases. New 
capabilities to HP SOA Management products include: 

HP Business Availability Center (BAC) for SOA – a module of HP’s real-time business service and application 
management solution built for the challenges of SOA. It manages shared services seamlessly within the existing 
operational infrastructure and processes used by IT. This reduces the risk of deploying services by making sure 
they are actively managed using proven processes and technologies. HP BAC for SOA also provides problem 
resolution before services affect consumers and business processes. 

HP Diagnostics for SOA – allows technical SOA teams to drill down into the behavior of their shared services to 
quickly identify and resolve problems before they impact customers. It works either standalone for SOA projects or
integrates seamlessly into BAC for SOA for enterprise management. 

HP SOA Policy Enforcer – bridges the gap between operational SOA management and run-time SOA governance. 
It provides the assurance that services are meeting technical and business requirements by actively monitoring and 
enforcing security, performance and other operational requirements. Performance monitoring data is fed directly into
HP Diagnostics for SOA for comprehensive analysis. 

“In our heterogeneous SOA environment, it is essential that we are able to automate the governance process with 
seamless integration with the testing and deployment of services,” said David Lindley, enterprise architect, Blue Cross 
Blue Shield of Florida. “This is especially critical as we scale up our development of services and move from a 
bottom up to a top down approach.”

HP’s SOA enablement solution offerings provide best practices and new products for automating the SOA 
governance, quality and management processes required for successful SOA adoption. HP also provides services 
to speed the creation of both SOA strategy and development. HP’s approach supports the heterogeneous nature 
of technology organizations and enables customers to effectively institute SOA solutions regardless of the underlying 
applications, platforms and infrastructure already in place.

HP Introduces High-performance, Power-efficient Business Desktop PC and Affordable, Everyday Model

Extending its portfolio of reliable, energy-efficient desktop PCs for business, HP today introduced two models 
packed with smart ideas like built-in power management tools, which help customers reduce their energy 
consumption for lower operating costs and environmental impact.

The HP Compaq dc5850 Business Desktop PC blends performance and value by featuring, for example, high-end 
integrated graphics technology and standard support for dual monitors in an affordable, mainstream PC. 

Sporting a modern design with glossy finishes and metal surfaces, the full-featured HP Compaq dx2450 Business 
Desktop PC is reliable and powerful enough to enable quick and efficient completion of daily tasks. 

“HP provides customers smart technology ideas and always-there expertise to help them choose the desktops that 
best meet their business and user needs,” said Alan Reed, vice president and general manager, Personal Systems 
Group, HP. “The depth and breadth of HP’s product offerings are a testament to our commitment to provide 
technologies that solve our global customers’ pain points, from IT management and security, to power consumption 
and environmentally responsible disposal.”

Performance and energy efficiency

In addition to integrated ATI Radeon™ 3100 graphics with support for DirectX® 10 technology, the HP Compaq 
dc5850 Business Desktop PC offers standard support for RAID technology with data mirroring features to help 
minimize computing disruptions and protect critical business data. 

These performance and productivity features are coupled with new AMD Cool’n’Quiet™ 2.0 technology, which 
enables independent frequency adjustments to each processor core for a quieter, more energy-efficient PC. 

Along with high-end capabilities, the dc5850 supports next-generation AMD Business Class processors, including

further by promoting energy-efficient habits for individual users, allowing them to choose the optimal mix of 
performance and conservation to proactively manage and reduce their PCs’ energy usage and environmental 
impact. 

The dc5850 also features access to HP Client Manager, which offers a variety of manageability options that help 
streamline PC management. Client Manager also helps protect physical assets and critical business data with 
security features like the embedded TPM 1.2 security chip and HP Backup and Recovery Manager. The dc5850 
also will be available with the optional HP ProtectTools Security Software Suite, which includes Credential Manager, 
Drive Encryption and Device Access Manager. 

With at least 12 months of lifecycle stability, the dc5850 allows IT managers to purchase systems with the 
confidence that they will last longer and provide the computing power necessary to run feature-rich applications 
today and more complex offerings in the future. 

Business-class PC with modern design and functionality

Targeted at business users with everyday computing needs, the HP Compaq dx2450 Business Desktop PC 
dx2450 delivers reliable technology and functionality at an affordable price. It makes previously high-end features, 
such as NVIDIA and ATI graphics cards and memory expansion capabilities, compatible with everyday computing 
environments. 

Customers also can take advantage of optional pre-installed business applications and other HP approved and 
tested options to maximize the performance of their PCs right out of the box. 

Pricing and availability
The HP Compaq dc5850 Business Desktop PC is expected to be available worldwide May 5 at a starting U.S. list 
price of $599.(3) The HP Compaq dx2450 is available in North America today for a starting U.S. list price of $369.(3)

(1) This system requires a separately purchased 64-bit operating system and 64-bit software products to take 
advantage of the 64-bit processing capabilities of AMD technology. Dual/quad/triple-core processing available with 
AMD technology is designed to improve performance of this system. Given the wide range of software applications 
available, performance of a system including a 64-bit operating system and a dual-core processor will vary.

(2) Verdiem SURVEYOR licenses must be purchased separately and are available as a third-party option from HP.

(3) Estimated U.S. street prices. Actual prices may vary.

HP and SCORE Host "Wellness" Workshops for Small Businesses

Groups issue white paper on impact of disasters on small businesses

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 2, 2008  HP and SCORE “Counselors to America’s Small Business” announced the 
second annual nationwide series of small business disaster preparedness workshops. 

The “Small Business Wellness Workshops” provide small businesses with education and solutions to plan for and 
recover from disasters – both natural and man made. 

Underscoring the necessity of disaster planning for small businesses, HP and SCORE also recently published a 
white paper, “Impact on US Small Business of Natural & Man-Made Disasters,” which highlights the consequences 
a small business could face if ill-prepared.

“HP has a long history of supporting small business and is excited to work with SCORE again to educate small 
businesses on how to protect themselves against unexpected natural and technology-related disasters,” said Lisa 
Baker, director, Business Marketing – Americas, Personal Systems Group, HP. “Our workshops were widely 
successful last year, and once again, we will aim to help small businesses focus on their bottom line, rather than 
on technology challenges.” 

“With our mission to foster the growth and success of small business, SCORE understands that disaster planning 
is imperative, not a ‘nice to have,’” said Ken Yancey, chief executive officer, SCORE. “As today’s small businesses 
are increasingly dependent on their computer systems, these workshops combine SCORE’s scenario planning 
expertise with HP’s data protection knowledge to address the full spectrum of disaster preparedness.” 

Workshops empower small businesses to protect themselves 

Each year due to storms, fires or unexpected hard drive collapses, an alarming number of small businesses lose 
irreplaceable customer data, tax documents, employee records and other critical information. 

During the Wellness Workshops, attendees will learn how to protect their core business information. Additionally, 
a bonus session on “greening your business” provides attendees with tips on making their businesses 
environmentally responsible. 

The HP and SCORE Small Business Wellness Workshops will be held at the following locations: 

April 2 – Lions Gate Hotel, 3410 Westover, Sacramento, Calif. 
April 29 – Waterford Fair Oaks, 12025 Lee Jackson Highway, Fairfax, Va. 
May 13 – Independent Visitors Center, 1 North Independence, Philadelphia, Pa. 
May 20 – Doubletree Hotel, San Jose, CA – in conjunction with Business Matchmaking Western Regional event 
May 29 – Crowne Plaza Hotel, 801 Greenwich Ave., Warwick, R.I. 

Workshops dates with locations TBD: 

June 4 – Austin, Texas 
June 11 – Birmingham, Ala. 
June 25 – Nashville, Tenn. 
July 9 – Raleigh, N.C. 
Sept. 10 – Denver, Colo. 
Sept. 17 – Milwaukee, Wis. 
Oct. 8 – Cincinnati, Ohio 
Oct. 22 – Louisville, Ky. 
Nov. 19 – Las Vegas, Nev. 
Dec. 2 – Tampa, Fla. 
Dec. 9 – Kansas City, Mo. 

Business Matchmaking brings together buyers from all federal agencies and many Fortune 500 companies to 
meet with small businesses offering various products and services. Since its inception, Business Matchmaking 
has generated more than 52,000 one-on-one appointments resulting in more than $1 billion in contracting 
opportunities for entrepreneurs through regional events held all across the country and in online sessions.

Valuable data for protecting a business 

The white paper published by HP and SCORE demonstrates the many types of disasters to which small 
businesses are susceptible, including large natural events such as hurricanes as well as those caused by human 
or mechanical errors, such as incorrect keystrokes or hard drive malfunctions. 

The study shows how some businesses floundered after a disaster, and how simple steps in preparedness could 
have completely changed the outcome. With a few proactive steps, any company can safeguard its valuable 
data to ensure that if the unthinkable happens, the company will still survive. 

More information about the white paper and the event, plus event registration for the Small Business Wellness 
Workshops, is available at www.score.org/HP_events.html.

and other content. In fact, Coughlin Associates Inc. estimates that by 2013 the average home will require 9 TB 
storage capacity, of which 5 TB will be needed for commercial digital downloads of music, videos and photos.(10) 

To make it simple for consumers to protect, share and connect to their digital content and Internet 
entertainment(11) – from home or on the go – HP offers the HP Media Vault mv2120. This is the first in a new 
category of affordable, easy-to-use products for the central storage, content sharing and backup of all computers 
on a home or small business network. The mv2120 can be set to automatically back up important media and digital 
files weekly, daily or continuously – as often as needed.

This pioneering product also offers some of the features found in the HP MediaSmart Server, including Photo 
Webshare, iTunes server and remote access. With Photo Webshare, consumers can create a photo-sharing 
website on the Media Vault, and with iTunes server, they can centralize their iTunes music library for playback on 
any computer running iTunes on the network.

Remote access grants designated users enhanced security for accessing important files on the network from any 
Internet-connected computer, even while outside of the home or office. Additionally, the mv2120 offers 
exceptionally low power consumption and a smart energy-saving drive spin down feature.

The mv2120 ships with 500 GB(8) capacity and can benefit individuals and small businesses with fewer than 10 
employees. HP also recently introduced the HP Media Vault mv5100 Pro series, available in 1 TB and 1.5 TB(1) 
capacities, which is specifically targeted to small businesses.

HP Introduces Servers, Customer Management Portfolio to Reduce Costs for Midsize Businesses

HP today announced two affordable, power-efficient HP ProLiant servers as well as the market’s first Quad-
Core AMD Opteron™ processor-based x86 platforms. 

In addition, the company is offering an expanded customer relationship management (CRM) portfolio, Linux-based 
management tools and remote access technology.

All of the products and solutions are designed to help small to midsize businesses reduce costs, improve security 
and better manage customer relationships. 

According to an AMI-Partners report,(1) this year more than 60 percent of midmarket companies(2) surveyed plan 
to invest in technology specifically for customer relationship management and secure remote access. 

“Through extensive research and customer interaction, HP has gained valuable insight into the needs of midsize 
business customers,” said Urs Renggli, director, worldwide small and midmarket business, Technology Solutions 
Group, HP. “As a result, we can deliver customized, affordable and effective technology designed specifically for 
them.”

Affordable, power-efficient HP ProLiant servers

The new HP ProLiant BL260c G5 offers customers the most power-efficient and affordable server blade in the
industry. The BL260c costs 20 percent less(3) and is 64 percent more power-efficient(4) than any other blade on 
the market. The BL260c, for use with the award-winning HP BladeSystem c3000 and c7000 enclosures, is 
designed for branch offices and remote sites with small or virtualization-based environments. It supports CRM, 
enterprise resource planning, database applications, web applications, file/print services and high-performance 
computing.

HP also introduced the HP ProLiant DL120 G5, the most affordable rack-optimized HP ProLiant server available. 
The single-processor DL120 features the latest Intel® Xeon® technology and offers midsize businesses improved 
efficiency.

In addition, HP is first to market with Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor-based x86 servers for customers of all sizes. 
The energy-efficient servers deliver improved processor performance as well as large memory footprints and storage 
capacities. They are ideal for demanding business and scale-out applications as well as virtualization deployments. 

In all, these eight blade, rack and tower models can save customers money through server consolidation and lower 
energy costs. 

Expanded CRM configuration options

HP has integrated next-generation server and storage technologies into HP-approved midsize Microsoft® 
Dynamics CRM configurations that can significantly reduce deployment time and support a customer-centric 
business strategy. Additionally, new Oracle® Siebel CRM Professional Edition configurations, validated by Oracle, 
offer midsize companies an affordable and easy-to-manage solution. 

To meet the growing demand for robust Linux-based solutions for midsize businesses, HP introduced: 

Five HP-approved Oracle database configurations for HP BladeSystem and ProLiant systems running on Linux. 
These configurations provide support for 75 to 400 users, reduce time to deployment and lower costs. 
HP Insight Control Environment for Linux, a complete, easy-to-deploy Linux management solution. It features 
powerful Linux cluster technology that improves application performance, which can sharpen a business’s 
competitive edge. 

Mobile security for midsize companies

HP also announced HP Secure Remote Access, which helps midsize businesses customers create sales 
opportunities by offering convenient, secure and complete access to critical business information from anywhere 
at any time. It interfaces with other HP devices, such as desktop PCs, thin clients, business notebooks, tablet PCs, 
iPAQ handhelds and smartphones. HP Secure Remote Access includes Citrix Access Essentials, Microsoft 
Windows® Server 2003 and Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 R2.

“HP offers midsize businesses like ours the opportunity to manage customers using technology that is easy to use 
and mitigates risk,” said Henry Chace, chief information officer at Burns & Levinson, a Boston-based legal firm with 
260 employees. “This allows us to focus on our core mission of providing clients with the services they need.”

HP reinforces channel support

As part of a continuing effort to empower channel members, HP also announced an advanced online configuration 
tool to help value-added resellers and other channel partners quickly and easily select the best configuration for 
their customers’ business applications.

“We are very happy with HP’s comprehensive product portfolio. It allows our midsize business clients to grow and 
create incremental revenue opportunities,” said Romi Randawa, president, HPM Networks, an HP-certified reseller 
based in Fremont, Calif. “The fact that HP continues to invest in its channel shows a true commitment to the midsize 
market.”

HP Expands Virtualization Capabilities of HP ProLiant Servers

Called HP ProLiant iVirtualization, these technologies allow businesses of all sizes to lower costs, improve 
productivity and better allocate resources across their server infrastructures.

HP has joined with the industry’s largest virtualization vendors – VMware, Citrix and Microsoft – to develop these 
technologies, which integrate virtualization with a broad range of HP ProLiant and BladeSystem platforms. 

iVirtualization is integrated directly into the ProLiant server using features that leverage customers’ existing server 
management tools. As such, when a server is powered on, it is automatically and immediately configured into a 
fully capable virtualization environment. 

This enables companies to adopt virtualization with greater speed and simplicity. Moreover, by taking advantage 
of HP Insight Control, iVirtualization increases business agility, improves quality of service and streamlines 
infrastructure management. 

“iVirtualization combines our industry-leading ProLiant servers with multiple virtualization technologies, then adds a 
high level of integration and management capabilities to deliver an unrivaled user experience,” said Scott Farrand, 
vice president, Industry Standard Server Software, HP. “By better managing their technology infrastructures and 
resources using virtualization, customers will have more time to focus on initiatives that impact their bottom line.” 

HP offers a broad virtualization portfolio: from server-based offerings such as HP ProLiant iVirtualization, to 
infrastructure solutions such as HP Insight Control management software and HP Insight Dynamics - VSE, to HP 
Data Center Automation software that provides seamless management and automation of the complete lifecycle of 
virtual and physical environments. 

The depth of complementary technologies from HP and its extensive collaboration with its partners allow customers 
to choose the right combination of virtualization solutions that best fits their specific business needs.

The HP ProLiant iVirtualization portfolio
HP ProLiant iVirtualization is designed for small to medium-size businesses as well as enterprise customers. 
Offerings include: 

HP ProLiant iVirtualization powered by VMware ESX 3i – Initially announced in February, this integrated solution 
allows customers of all sizes to quickly and easily deploy a server into a VMware environment for either single 
server partitioning or as a fully functioning plug-and-play component within a data center virtualized by VMware. 
HP plans to make this available on ProLiant servers beginning March 31. 

HP ProLiant iVirtualization powered by Citrix XenServer – This integrated solution features a new interface called 
HP ProLiant Virtual Console, which offers substantially improved configuration, management and ease of use for 
virtualized ProLiant servers. It provides a fast and simple path to virtualization on a single server or as part of an 
end-to-end Citrix solution for server, application and desktop virtualization. HP plans to make this solution available 
to customers beginning March 31. 

Microsoft® Hyper-V Server for HP ProLiant iVirtualization – Microsoft’s Hyper-V Server solution running on HP 
ProLiant and BladeSystem servers allows customers to consolidate multiple server roles running as separate virtual 
machines to a single physical server while using both Microsoft’s and HP’s management tools. HP ProLiant 
iVirtualization powered by Microsoft Hyper-V Server will be made available following the release of Hyper-V Server 
by Microsoft. 

HP ProLiant Virtual Console – The new HP ProLiant Virtual Console advances the simplicity and manageability of 
a virtualized server from a local console or remotely via the HP Integrated Lights Out (iLO) Advanced console. 
Using this exclusive capability from HP, which is initially available on ProLiant servers with iVirtualization powered 
by Citrix XenServer, customers are able to easily create and manage virtual machines on individual servers. 
In addition, customers can: 
perform subsequent configuration, visualization and modification of key controls of the virtualization platform; 
use a single “hot-key” to quickly toggle between each virtual machine console; 
select a multi-screen view that displays multiple virtual machine consoles at once; and 
use HP ProLiant Virtual Console to create unlimited virtual machines on HP Select Edition. 

HP ProLiant iVirtualization management tools and availability
HP ProLiant iVirtualization works seamlessly with customers’ existing HP Insight Control management tools to 
reduce the time needed to install and configure a virtualized environment.

The following hardware management tools within the HP Insight Control portfolio have been enhanced to deliver 
greater manageability of servers with ProLiant iVirtualization: 

HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) – This platform management tool can now discover VMware ESX Server 3i 
and Citrix XenServer virtual machines within the network and associate the appropriate virtual machines with the 
servers on which they run. Customers using HP SIM with HP ProLiant iVirtualization can reduce downtime by 
actively monitoring data through proactive alerts and server polling. These features are not available in 
management tools from any other hardware vendor. 

HP Virtual Machine Management Pack (VMM) – Enterprises can use VMM to manage virtual machines from the 
same console used to manage the physical infrastructure. VMM now supports VMware ESX 3i, VMware ESX Server, 
Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2, with planned support for Microsoft Hyper-V Server. Customers 
can directly launch any of these management tools with HP VMM for advanced control of the virtualized environment. 
HP Server Migration Pack - Universal Edition (SMP Universal) – Built specifically for HP ProLiant and HP 
BladeSystem servers, this tool features a single interface for automating both physical and virtual migrations. 
In addition to supporting virtual platforms from VMware and Microsoft, SMP Universal now supports VMware ESX 
Server 3i and Citrix XenServer with planned support for Microsoft Hyper-V Server. As a result, conversion between 
virtual and physical environments is greatly simplified as business needs change. 

Offerings within the HP ProLiant iVirtualization portfolio can be integrated with a server at HP’s factory before 
being shipped to a customer or it can be integrated with a server by an HP reseller partner. Customers also can 
choose from base-level functionality or enterprise capabilities, depending on their business needs.

HP ProLiant iVirtualization complements HP Insight Dynamics - VSE, which was previewed earlier this week. HP 
Insight Dynamics - VSE is advanced planning and management software that allows data center administrators to 
analyze and optimize physical and virtual resources across the entire infrastructure in the same way, bringing the 
benefits of virtualization to physical servers.

cartridges.(8) According to the report, one in three of the remanufactured monochrome toner cartridges tested had 
some kind of reliability problem, while none of the tested HP cartridges experienced issues.

HP Deskjet Marks 20 Years as World’s Best-selling Printer

HP today celebrated the 20th anniversary of the HP Deskjet printer, the world’s top-selling printer brand.(1) 

Relied on by more than 240 million customers around the world, the HP Deskjet-branded printer continues to 
outsell all other inkjet printers on the market 20 years after its first introduction.(1)

In conjunction with this anniversary, HP announced two new HP Deskjet printer series designed to make it 
easy for consumers to create, manage and publish their content. They use new HP 60 series ink cartridges, 
which are designed for everyday home printing of documents, web pages, photos and more.

HP Deskjet advances through two decades
Launched in February 1988, the HP Deskjet was the world’s first single-sheet, desktop printer. Originally priced 
at $995, the reliable HP Deskjet featured an average speed of just 2 pages per minute (ppm).(2)

Today, the HP Deskjet has transformed into a high-speed, lightweight printer with a multitude of features from 
wireless connectivity to intuitive software and hardware installation for quick and easy setup. Ideal for printing 
everyday document and photos, current HP Deskjet models print up to 36 ppm(2) and are priced as low as $29, 
with many priced at less than $100.(3)

A complete timeline of the HP Deskjet is available at www.hp.com/go/deskjet20.

HP commemorates 20 years of innovation with new Deskjet launch 
HP unveiled two new Energy Star®-compliant printers – the HP Deskjet D2500 Printer Series and HP Deskjet 
F4200 All-in-One Series, both designed with reliable, easy operation in mind. 

Both printer series feature new HP 60 ink cartridges with HP Vivera inks, offering laser-quality black text and 
vivid graphics with water- and smudge-resistant properties. Additionally, these HP Deskjet series include user-
friendly printing features such as a one-touch print-cancel button to prevent the printing of unwanted pages and 
an ultra-compact 80-sheet fold-up paper tray. The printers also boast easy photo printing from 4 x 6-inch to 
panorama-size, automatic red-eye removal and seamless Snapfish integration(4) with HP’s intuitive Photosmart 
Essential software.(5)

When it’s time to order replacement ink cartridges, convenient ink alerts and HP SureSupply make it easy for 
customers to find the cartridges that work with their printers through a variety of online sources.(6) In addition, 
HP offers free and convenient cartridge recycling options through the HP Planet Partners recycling program.(7) 

All new HP Deskjet printers feature the HP Smart Web Printing tool for simple, predictable printing from the web. 
With the tool, web pages are automatically adjusted to prevent cut-off edges. Users can easily select and print 
only the content they want – saving paper and ink as well as time.(5) 

The HP Deskjet D2500 Printer Series is expected to be available this spring for $49, while the HP Deskjet F4200 
All-in-One Series is expected to be available this spring for $79.(3)

New ink cartridges enable easy and affordable printing for the home 
Also new this spring, the HP 60 Black and Tri-color Ink Cartridges with Vivera inks featured on the new Deskjet 
series deliver laser-quality black text and vivid graphics with water and smudge-resistant properties. The low-cost, 
high-quality cartridges are ideal for printing documents, letters and web pages. 

HP 60 Black and Tri-color Ink Cartridges with Vivera inks feature a new dye-based color and pigment-based black 
ink formulation that delivers excellent quality on a variety of plain and specialty papers. The HP 60 ink cartridges 
use a new printhead design that delivers smaller ink droplets for more finely detailed images and graphics.

HP 60 Ink Cartridges are also newly molded from recycled plastic resins. More than 70 percent of each cartridge 
body (by weight) is recycled content from used HP cartridges collected through the HP Planet Partners recycling 
program and other sources such as water bottles.

Additionally, customers who use papers with the ColorLok logo will enjoy enhanced document quality – including 
bolder blacks for improved contrast and sharper text and uniform colors for vibrant graphics. Documents on 
ColorLok papers also dry faster, allowing customers to handle printed pages right away with less smearing. 

For frequent printing, HP offers optional high-capacity cartridges for the HP Deskjet D2500 Printer Series and 
HP Deskjet F4200 All-in-One Series – the HP 60XL Black ink cartridge and the HP 60XL Tri-color ink cartridge. 
Providing greater value to customers, these cartridges produce three times more black and two times more color 
ages than standard supplies for Deskjet printers. This represents a savings of more than 33 percent for black 
and 26 percent for color.(8)

HP Introduces Advanced Family of Disk Arrays at Entry-level Prices

HP today introduced a new family of entry-level disk arrays with enterprise-class features that can help 
customers more effectively centralize storage to lower costs, increase administrator efficiency and reduce 
business downtime. 

The HP StorageWorks 2000 Modular Smart Array (MSA2000) family is composed of low-cost Fibre Channel and 
iSCSI disk arrays for highly available, storage area networks (SAN) that is designed for virtualized server 
environments. 

The easy-to-use, enterprise-class systems are designed for small and mid-size businesses, however, enterprises 
also will find the MSA2000 an ideal solution for remote office, departmental, secondary and tertiary storage needs. 

The entry-level external storage market was $2.8 billion in 2006, according to analysts, and HP garnered a 
market-leading 21 percent market share in this segment in 2007.(1)

“HP’s market strength and experience in the entry-level SAN segment allows them to deliver cost-effective 
solutions that provide high levels of availability and scalability,” said John Webster, principal IT advisor, Illuminata 
Inc. “There is a growing demand among customers with smaller storage needs for features to support high-profile 
data and applications, as well as deployments of virtual servers.” 

The MSA2000 arrays are easily deployed in physical or virtual server environments to deliver an available and 
automated infrastructure. The modular arrays also support a wide range of application deployments, including 
VMware virtualization software. The MSA2000 enables customers to increase disk utilization by deploying any 
combination of SAS or SATA drives to achieve an ideal mix of price, reliability and performance to support their 
business. 

New capabilities within the MSA2000 increase application uptime to better ensure that the systems are available 
for the business. For example, features such as dual power supplies, optional dual controllers and redundant 
hardware with automatic failover significantly reduce business downtime. 

To further minimize the risk of business interruption, the MSA2000 includes optional management software for 
“snap and clone” capabilities. These new data duplication capabilities are critical in protecting data and
 streamlining IT processes with rapid backup and recovery operations. This more reliable data protection also 
features a persistent cache that does not require a battery backup, thus reducing the potential disposal of 
hazardous material.

Both the iSCSI and Fibre Channel MSA2000 arrays complement the HP BladeSystem and feature a built-in 
management console to set up and configure the storage without additional hardware and software. This enables 
HP BladeSystem customers to easily fit the MSA2000 into their current management environment and configure 
all their blades at once instead of one blade at a time.

The flexible and modular nature of the HP StorageWorks portfolio eases the addition of file services to the 
MSA2000 family using HP ProLiant Storage Servers or an HP StorageWorks EFS Clustered Gateway. By 
leveraging familiar ProLiant server configuration and system management tools, minimal training is required for IT 
managers and administration is simplified. 

“Our modular storage arrays are perfect for customers who have a limited IT budget, but need a solution that is 
quickly scalable for shared storage environments,” said Robin Hensley, vice president of Entry Storage, 
StorageWorks, HP. “Customers will benefit from consolidating their storage and can take advantage of features 
like snap and clone to protect their data and deliver value to their business.” 

The MSA2000 disk arrays can scale up to 36 terabytes of capacity and support either 4-Gb Fibre Channel 
(MSA2000fc) or 1-Gb iSCSI (MSA2000i) host connectivity. The arrays can be configured with up to 48 SAS or 
SATA disk drives for an optimal mix of performance, cost and energy efficiency. 

Pricing and availability
The HP StorageWorks 2000 Modular Smart Array starts at U.S. list price of $4,999 with general availability 
expected in March.(2)

HP Announces Strategy to Bridge Gap Between Content Creation and Publishing

HP today announced its strategy to enable customers – from home consumers to large corporations – to harness 
the vast amount of rich media content that remains untapped for publishing. 

As part of the announcement, HP unveiled at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) tradeshow several retail 
photo printing solutions and services that provide consumers the tools to personalize their photos and publish 
customized creative output, while helping retailers maintain peak efficiency.

With three major analog-to-digital conversion processes already underway – in film, telephony and TV – and as 
more analog processes such as book publishing are converted to digital, the growth of digital content is exploding. 

According to industry analyst firm IDC, the information added annually to the “digital universe” is expected to 
increase more than sixfold from 161 billion gigabytes to 988 billion gigabytes between 2006 and 2010. In 2006 
alone, the amount of digital information created, captured and replicated was approximately 3 million times the 
information in all the books ever written.(1) 

Recognizing this opportunity, HP’s strategy focuses on four key areas that are designed to close the gap 
between the content that is created and that which is actually published and available for consumption:

Helping customers create, access, manage and publish their content 
Generating new publishing occasions 
Using the web and other software assets to enable the entire content creation, management and publishing 
ecosystem 
Applying these capabilities to high-growth vertical markets 
The effort is being led through HP’s Web Services and Software Business, which was created last fall within the 
company’s Imaging and Printing Group.

“Put simply, we want our customers to be able to bring rich content to life,” said David Murphy, senior VP, Web 
Services and Software Business, HP. “In combining our printing franchise with a world-class set of software and 
web assets, HP is creating a multibillion-dollar business poised to lead the transformation to a comprehensive 
digital supply chain – from content creation and management to publishing and consumption.” 

Enabling the digital transformation
Nowhere is the disconnect between digital content creation and publishing more prevalent than in the digital 
photography market, where the difference in the number of images captured and those that are actually published 
or printed is vast and growing. 

To bridge this gap, HP is empowering consumers with the tools to personalize their photos and publish customized 
creative content. In the retail photo environment, the company is working to transform retailers’ traditional photo 
labs into digital publishing centers that move beyond prints to rich digital media, such as photo books, posters, 
calendars and other creative photo products. 

To this end, HP unveiled several additions to its lineup, including the launch of the new HP Photo Center – a 
versatile, scalable and space-efficient digital print solution designed to easily plug into a retailer’s existing lab 
infrastructure. The system incorporates the new HP Photosmart ml1000 Minilab printer, designed to be the fastest 
and most versatile dry inkjet retail photo printing system on the market,(2) as well as the efficient and easy-to-use 
new HP Photosmart pm2000e Microlab printer. Both products were winners of the DIMA 2008 Innovative 
Digital Product Awards. 

The HP Photo Center also includes the new HP Photosmart cl2000 Creative printer for production of photo 
books, calendars, greeting cards and other published consumer content, and a new consumer order station 
that features a 17-inch screen with screen-assisted navigation to make publishing creative content easier.

To help retailers efficiently manage back-office services, such as device configuration, billing and reporting, the 
HP Photo Center features an innovative suite of software. The system also offers order management functionality 
to help with job fulfillment and a remote management system that ensures systems are consistently available for 
customer use. 

Fueling the web-to-store printing market 
HP also announced it is now offering its Snapfish by HP members the ability to order posters online to be picked 
up the same day at any of Staples’ 1,400 “Copy and Printer Centers” nationwide. Staples is the first nationwide 
retailer to offer this service. 

Starting at $14.99,(3) the posters will be printed in-store on HP Designjet printers and offered in two sizes – 16x20 
inches and 20x30 inches. Customers will have the choice of using a single image or creating a collage of up to 
30 images, and they can add a title as well as select from up to 14 background colors.

Between 2004 and 2007, the web-to-retail market in the United States grew more than 1,200 percent to more 
than 1.2 billion prints, according to internal HP data. In 2007, the Snapfish network of online photo sites
generated more than 1 billion of those 1.2 billion web-to-store prints. 

HP at PMA
HP’s David Murphy will participate on the PMA Visionaries Panel, where he will discuss the digital photography
landscape, including the challenges and opportunities in helping consumers use the power of digital to unleash 
their photos and publish them in new and exciting ways.

More information on the products mentioned above and other HP announcements at PMA is available in an 
online press kit at http://www.hp.com/go/pma2008.

HP Introduces Energy-efficient Business Desktop PCs, Including Industry’s First with Solid-state Drive

HP today announced two new energy-efficient business desktop PCs, including the industry’s first to feature a 
solid-state hard drive (SSD), which offers improved reliability. 

Both the HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-slim Desktop PC with SSD and the HP Compaq dc5800 Business PC provide 
the power and flexibility to meet the needs of most any business. In addition, they include a variety of 
environmental features that allow them to meet the most stringent environmental requirements of the Electronic 
Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT™) Gold registry. 

The two PCs add to HP’s industry-topping number of Gold-listed products in the EPEAT registry. The registry 
helps businesses evaluate, compare and select technology products based on their environmental attributes, 
such as meeting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s latest ENERGY STAR™ energy-efficiency 
requirements. 

While using more power-efficient PCs can help any business save on energy costs and reduce the environmental 
impact of their technology, the effect across an enterprise environment can be immense. 

For example, the recent IDC Go Green PC Power Play Study found that the U.S. federal government could save 
more than $82.4 million in energy costs(1)– the equivalent to conserving more than 1.3 million barrels of oil in just 
one year(2)– if its more than 10 million existing ENERGY STAR 3.0 PCs were updated to the new 4.0 standard.(3) 
The research study was underwritten by HP to help quantify the savings opportunities energy-efficient PCs could 
provide the federal government. 

“HP’s ongoing efforts to design for the environment have spanned decades,” said Alan Reed, vice president and 
general manager, Personal Systems Group, HP. “HP leverages this expertise to continually develop smart ideas 
for its PC product lines that not only help business customers be more productive, but also reduce operating costs 
and their effect on the environment.” 

New desktops more efficiently power business
The HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-slim Desktop PC’s solid-state hard drive provides many performance and 
durability improvements, including near instantaneous access to data and the elimination of moving parts, which 
are the main cause of electro-mechanical wear out. Additional benefits include a faster system start, better reliability, 
improved power efficiency, shock improvement and a smaller overall footprint. 

The dc7800 Ultra Slim Desktop is one of the industry’s smallest, enterprise-ready desktops – 46 percent smaller 
than previous models – and also features HP’s lowest power consuming, 85 percent efficient power supply, without 
compromising performance. 

It is loaded with energy-efficient features, including the latest Intel® Core™ 2 Duo(4)processors with optional Intel 
vPro™ technology and preloaded Verdiem SURVEYOR™ network power management software agent.(5) SURVEYOR 
can help measure, manage and reduce power consumption on PCs and monitors, and, when paired with Intel vPro 
remote management technologies, can lower PC energy costs to as little as $10 per year per system.(6)

“As partners in a variety of environmental efforts, HP and Intel are seeking ways to improve our environmental 
impact,” said Robert Crooke, vice president and general manager, Intel Business Client Group.  “The dc7800 is a 
good example.  It takes advantage of the energy-efficient performance of the Intel Core microarchitecture and the 
manageability features of Intel vPro technology, which can help bring to an end the practice of leaving computers 
on all night for IT service and can help IT to verify power-conservation settings on PCs.” 

The new HP Compaq dc5800 Business Desktop PC, available in redesigned small form factor and microtower PC 
designs, delivers reliable technology, productivity tools and security features that are designed to provide a worry-
free foundation for businesses.

Proven industry-standard technologies, such as Intel’s next-generation chipset and processors and the SURVEYOR 
power management software agent, help dc5800 customers reduce processor heat and energy costs, as well as 
manage power and sleep settings more efficiently to increase the useful life of the PC. 

The HP Compaq dc5800 Business PC also is equipped with additional manageability and security features to 
help better protect IT investments. Available features include access to a suite of client management tools from 
a single integrated console, minimum 12-month product lifecycle, a single software image designed for use across 
the entire platform, regardless of model or configuration, and worldwide configurations for consistent deployment 
for global corporations.

The dc5800 security options include embedded TPM 1.2 to help provide enhanced data protection and limit 
system access through hardware-based encryption. Optional HP ProtectTools security software further enhances 
an IT infrastructure’s first line of defense.

Pricing and availability
The HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-slim Business Desktop with SSD is expected to be available mid-February in North 
America at a starting U.S. list price of $1,258, while the HP Compaq dc5800 is expected to be available beginning 
Feb. 11 in configurations starting as low as $579.(7) Additional global availability will vary by region.

HP Announces New Software and Services to Fully Automate the Management of Business Services

HP today announced new software and services to help businesses transform IT operations and automate the 
full lifecycle of managing business services.

The company introduced HP Automated Operations 1.0, an integrated set of products that automates IT 
operations across all technology and organizational domains. This eliminates labor-intensive, ad hoc and error-
prone manual processes and, in turn, helps IT organizations dramatically lower the day-to-day cost of operations.

The cost savings from streamlining IT operations allows businesses to shift resources to more strategic IT 
initiatives that can help fuel business innovation and growth. 

The HP Automated Operations 1.0 software suite is composed of IT Service Management, Business Service 
Management and Business Service Automation solutions. This suite is one of the key pillars of HP Software’s 
Business Technology Optimization portfolio, which integrates assets from HP OpenView, Peregrine, Mercury and 
Opsware. 

In addition, the company launched its HP Business Service Automation software solution, a single platform to 
automate all IT processes and drive change across applications, servers, networks, storage and clients. The 
solution also provides a central configuration management database (CMDB) for reporting, which reduces the 
cost and risk of change while providing comprehensive audit and compliance capabilities.

HP also enhanced its IT Service Management (ITSM) software and added related services that offer best 
practices through blueprints, training and assessments. HP ITSM software helps companies define, deliver 
and manage business services from inception to retirement.

"We have been aggressively expanding our software portfolio in the last two years to broaden and deepen our 
capabilities to help customers improve their top and bottom lines," said Tom Hogan, senior vice president, 
Software, HP. "This relentless focus on customers has been paying off and more customers are choosing HP 
Software to achieve their business goals."

According to a recent survey by industry analyst firm Gartner Inc., the top two priorities that businesses expect 
IT to support are improving business processes and controlling enterprise-wide operating costs.

However, many chief information officers are faced with the daunting task of meeting this demand with out-
dated tools and manual, ad hoc processes that are insufficient to manage increasingly complex IT environments. 
This complexity is caused by the proliferation and massive build out in recent years of IT infrastructure, including 
servers, network devices, storage arrays, clients and software. 

New HP Business Service Automation solution

The new HP Business Service Automation solution incorporates key data center automation technologies from 
the acquisition of Opsware and HP’s client automation and storage automation capabilities. With this solution, 
IT organizations can:

- Automate operations across client, applications, physical and virtual servers, networks, storage and software to 
free up scarce IT staff resources to focus on strategic and innovative initiatives to help drive growth for the 
business; 
- Orchestrate processes across systems and teams with integrated process workflows delivered through HP 
Operations Orchestration software. This software allows customers to create automated process workflows that 
enable complex changes that span multiple infrastructure tiers and built-in audit trails. This is particularly important 
for processes that impact financial reporting, security and other governance concerns; and 
- Record and manage all configuration updates and change activity to infrastructure and applications for complete 
service compliance. 

"Business service automation is an opportunity for IT organizations to more closely align with business 
objectives such as compliance, security, cost reduction and the delivery of innovative products," said Stephen 
Elliot, research director, Enterprise Management Service, IDC. "The legacy manner in which many IT 
organizations execute enterprise infrastructure management processes is quickly becoming obsolete as they 
are too static, take too long to execute and lengthen time to market cycles. IT organizations must mature toward 
processes and technologies that enable a more dynamic, business-driven impact."

Comprehensive HP IT Service Management solution

HP’s ITSM solution helps IT organizations continually monitor, measure and improve their business value while 
increasing the efficiency of IT service delivery. The solution includes major enhancements to: 

- HP Service Manager 7.0 - enables automated service lifecycle management to manage business services 
from a user perspective to help deliver higher quality services to the business at a lower cost. Problem detection 
and resolution can be accelerated through integrations HP Universal CMDB and HP BSM solutions. This is also 
offered through Software-as-a-Service, or SaaS, with which customers can use software on demand over the 
Internet. 
- HP Decision Center 2.0 - helps IT staff manage and improve the quality of service delivery by helping IT 
organizations make informed decisions to improve business processes while minimizing negative business impact. 
It provides pre-configured metrics and analytics based on ITIL v3 to enable the business-centric measurements 
needed for continual service improvement. 

In addition, HP is offering new services to help customers quickly unlock the value of its software, including:

- HP Blueprint and Training for Service Manager 7.0 - provides best practices for standardizing and automating 
processes to accelerate deployment of ITIL v3 and implementation of HP Service Manager. These services help 
customers improve the efficiency and quality of IT operations, ensure they meet regulatory reporting 
requirements and reduce operational risk. 
- HP IT Service Management Assessment Services - helps customers continually improve the quality of service 
management skills and processes. With enhancements that include the new ITIL v3 processes, this service helps 
improve productivity and reduce reactive process changes. This frees IT staff to focus more on strategic projects 
supporting business growth. 

"Faced with rapid growth within Wunderman, we needed to consolidate many local service desk implementations. 
HP Software helped us implement a consolidated global service desk, which allowed us to meet our initial cost 
saving objectives," said Lawrence Baxter, chief information officer, Wunderman. "As we move into the next 
phase of the project, we are relying on HP’s ITSM solution to help us further improve our operational efficiency, 
increase service quality and better align IT systems with the business."

HP Helps Businesses Reduce Risk of Downtime with Enhanced Business Service Management Software

HP today introduced enhanced software to help IT organizations monitor and manage business services to 
mitigate business risk and reduce the potential costs of service downtime. 

The newly enhanced HP Business Service Management (BSM) solution combines industry-leading application, 
infrastructure and network management software to help customers manage the overall health of their business 
services. It does this across networks, servers and applications, while linking infrastructure performance to 
end-user monitoring and process automation. 

The solution includes major upgrades to HP Operations Center 8.0, HP Network Management Center 8.0, HP 
Business Availability Center 7.0 and HP Universal Configuration Management Database (CMDB) 7.0. 

The HP BSM offering is part of the HP Service Management portfolio of software and services that helps IT 
become a service provider to the business and deliver better business outcomes.

By gaining visibility into the status of business services across networks, servers and applications, IT 
organizations can prioritize their workloads around the most critical business issues, such as making sure that 
important transactions can be processed without disruption. HP BSM software helps customers monitor and 
manage complex business services, such as insurance claim processing, product order and inventory 
management systems, across heterogeneous and distributed IT environments. 

“With so much reliance on technology, businesses today are at risk if the IT system that drives their most 
critical business processes goes down,” said Ramin Sayar, senior director of products, Software, HP. “HP’s 
BSM solution helps IT organizations effectively pinpoint problems across the entire IT stack.”

“In a recent survey of IT professionals, IDC found that the top three issues identified by respondents as pain 
points related to business service management are the inability to understand the business impact of IT 
problems, the inability to proactively fix problems before they impact users, and the inability to prioritize IT efforts 
based on business risk,” said Stephen Elliot, research director, Enterprise Management Service, IDC. “In order to 
become more business aligned, IT organizations need to better understand the impact of infrastructure events on 
business services and resolve them before their customers are affected, through process adoption and 
integrated management solutions that deliver business service visibility.” 

New integration and product enhancements
HP Network Management Center 8.0 – has been fully re-engineered to help customers minimize the impact of 
network device failures on business services and the user experience. It helps IT staff: 

Automatically view on their console only network problems that require operator action based upon recent 
changes to the network topology; 
Implement and automate event management as described in the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) v3 definition to 
solve infrastructure problems faster and more efficiently; and 
Find problems in the network paths that link the elements of composite applications, including those based on
service-oriented architectures (SOAs) to prevent disruptions and slowdowns. 

“As a leader in the transmission and distribution of electric energy, Duquesne Light prides itself on superior 
customer service and reliability, and that starts with the service and reliability of our IT infrastructure,” said Kevin 
Turkovich, manager, IT Infrastructure & Support, Duquesne Light. “We made the decision to deploy HP Network 
Management Center 8.0 to help us achieve faster mean time to resolution and because it is easy to use, easy to 
learn and easy to deploy. We were managing our network within two hours after downloading the software.” 

HP Operations Center 8.0 – helps IT staff understand how infrastructure and server problems impact the business.
It helps customers: 
Prioritize fix time based on impact to the business and gain visibility into the relationship between infrastructure 
and business services through links between HP Operations Center to HP Universal CMDB; and 
Eliminate the need to manually create and maintain the models that make this visibility possible by automating 
the population and maintenance of the CMDB. This helps minimize disruptions to the business and reduces 
duplication of effort between silos in IT. 

HP Business Availability Center 7.0 – helps IT ensure that business processes and applications are up and 
running by helping IT: 
Rapidly isolate the area where a problem is occurring with new guided workflow-enabled problem isolation 
functionality. This new software automatically collects and correlates the information required to solve 
performance problems quickly and accurately. Through integration with the HP Universal CMDB, it is able to 
determine recent, related changes that may be causing problems; 
Solve repeat incidents quickly with automated resolution while tying directly to ticketing/help desk systems 
through integration with HP’s process automation technology; 
Proactively identify performance problems by automatically discovering user behavior patterns; and 
Ensure the integrity of strategic business services by monitoring the total health of business transactions, 
enabling IT to gain visibility into the detailed status of all steps of each business transaction. Integration with 
HP’s transaction monitoring product, HP TransactionVision, and HP’s business process monitoring product, HP 
Business Process Insight, makes it easier and faster for customers to manage individual business transactions. 

HP Business Availability Center 7.0 also is available through the HP Software-as-a-Service offering, a delivery 
model in which software is developed, hosted and operated for use by customers over the Internet. 

“At Dow Chemical, we need to make sure that our enterprise applications are always up and available, and to 
do that, we rely on HP BSM solutions, including HP Business Availability Center software,” said Janet Gerdes, 
service manager, Dow Chemical Company. “Dow views IT as integral to its business processes, and by 
leveraging the capabilities of HP software, we ensure that our enterprise applications deliver the business value 
our company expects.”

HP Universal CMDB 7.0 – provides the foundation for HP’s BSM solution and helps customers: 
Leverage existing information in other management data repositories with its newly enhanced on-demand, 
real-time federation and reconciliation capabilities; 
Improve ITIL service management processes and collaboration by leveraging a single CMDB to resolve
problems across IT silos; and 
Accelerate enterprise BSM implementation with a leading HP Discovery and Dependency Mapping solution to 
automate the population and maintenance of the CMDB. 

“As a leading provider of mobile services platforms, InfoSpace needs an integrated view of IT operations, based 
on a single version of the truth, to help deliver better services to our customers,” said Brian Jeide, director of IT 
architecture, InfoSpace. “HP’s BSM solution helps us to achieve that integrated view of our user experience 
and quickly isolate problems. We are able to identify problems in the infrastructure and understand their impact 
on our services, which is our business.”

HP Advances RFID Adoption with New Solution and Innovation Lab

HP today unveiled new Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, including software and services to 
facilitate integration with RFID solutions from SAP AG and Microsoft Corp. for up-to-the-minute supply chain 
visibility. 

The company also announced an RFID innovation lab designed to foster research and adoption of the
technology. 

RFID is a data collection technology that holds tremendous potential to improve operations by providing greater 
visibility into supply chains, from inventory and logistics to freshness dates. The technology can, in turn, help 
companies improve stock availability, reduce lost or stolen inventory, and deliver better customer service.

At EPC Connection 2007, an annual conference and exhibition about RFID benefits and Electronic Product 
Code (EPC) industry standards, HP introduced the HP Connector Solution for use with SAP® applications and 
Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2. The solution enables customers to link RFID devices to crucial supply chain 
and asset tracking applications.

"HP, Microsoft and SAP continue to deliver innovations to drive the adoption of RFID, a critical technology in 
the business process cycle," said Frank Lanza, worldwide director, RFID, HP. "By cost-effectively simplifying 
the integration of RFID devices with business applications, companies can reap the many business benefits of 
RFID."

Through Microsoft BizTalk RFID, Microsoft’s device management and event processing platform, customers 
can collect, manage and optimize data from within the physical RFID environment. The data integrates with the 
SAP Auto-ID Enterprise offering to enable supply chain, analytical and asset tracking applications. 

"Today RFID solutions are a core enabler for better business process management," said Steven Martin, 
director of product management, Microsoft. "With key solutions such as the HP Connector Solution, BizTalk 
Server customers now have one more way to use RFID data to make better business decisions."

Specific solution benefits include: 

Reduced cost - HP provides a comprehensive solution that leverages existing investments in SAP applications, 
BizTalk Server and RFID technologies, eliminating the need for additional expenditures. 
Reduced risk - HP delivery professionals possess extensive implementation expertise with solutions from SAP, 
Microsoft BizTalk Server and RFID, helping to deliver a secure deployment - on time and within budget. 
Accelerated implementation time - HP utilizes a pre-integration work functionality so that a new custom code 
does not have to be written for each application. 
Industry-standard solutions - HP offers implementation platforms that allow customers to build heterogeneous 
environments, including HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers and HP StorageWorks offerings. 

"SAP is committed to helping its customers leverage RFID and serialization technology to achieve increased 
business value across their enterprises," said Dr. Krish Mantripragada, global head, RFID and Supply Chain 
Management solutions, SAP. "Working together with HP and Microsoft will allow us to drive business value for 
our collective customers by tying together data collection through Microsoft to business transformation through 
SAP. This announcement underscores the importance of and growth in the RFID market today."

HP Services offers delivery and maintenance support for RFID implementations to ensure enterprises are utilizing 
the solution to best reach their business needs. HP provides the connector as part of its RFID implementation 
service offering and is the worldwide prime integrator for Microsoft BizTalk Server.

New Labs to foster RFID adoption

HP also announced, in conjunction with the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), the opening of the 
SAIT Radio Frequency Applications Development Lab (RAD) to advance RFID innovation and research. 

The new laboratory will provide faculty and students at SAIT with the facilities, services and hands-on experience 
needed to design, develop and test RFID solutions. The areas of application research will focus on the energy, 
agriculture, health and manufacturing industries. In particular, the RAD Lab will: 

Showcase RFID technologies and help local companies expand their RFID business; 
Deliver services in the form of a test development platform for RFID integration to local industries; 
Provide a place where service providers can work to study, design and deploy advanced RFID solutions; and 
Allow customers to complete a lab based proof-of-concept so they can see the technologies live at work prior 
to deployment. 

HP will utilize the RAD facility to communicate its latest RFID technology offerings and HP RFID experts will 
offer support and expertise to research clients during the development of prototypes and proof-of-concepts. HP 
will also support the fellowship of the RFID Applications Engineer position at RAD.

HP Unveils Business Technology Solutions and Services to Help Accelerate Better Business Outcomes

HP today announced new solutions and services to its Business Technology portfolio that help customers 
better manage and optimize business information as well as their technology infrastructures. 

The new offerings help CIOs accelerate better business outcomes by mitigating risk in electronic data discovery

Optimization, Business Technology Optimization and Adaptive Infrastructure. 

“Our customers rely on us because we are 100 percent focused on helping them solve their business problems. 
This is what technology is for. We’re helping customers lower costs, manage risk and capitalize on change, all 
of which helps their businesses grow faster,” said Deborah Nelson, senior vice president, Marketing and 
Alliances, Technology Solutions Group, HP. “The additions to the HP Business Technology portfolio strengthen 
our ability to partner with CIOs in solving their key business issues.”

Business Information Optimization 
The HP Integrated Archive Platform allows billions of emails, documents and images to be easily stored, 
searched and retrieved from a single, extensible e-Discovery platform. The platform is a factory-integrated 
enterprise class solution for electronic data discovery, governance and compliance. Incorporating HP’s leading

Exchange. The enhancements offer customers multiple options to meet recovery point and time objectives. HP 
service offerings also help customers design, validate and implement backup and recovery solutions. 

HP also unveiled the Business Intelligence (BI) Evolution Assessment, a survey that helps customers evaluate 
their BI capabilities. Based on HP’s BI Maturity Model, which maps a company’s progress along a BI adoption 
curve, the assessment helps organizations measure their own BI maturity and determine next steps. 

Business Technology Optimization
Improving information delivery to key IT stakeholders throughout project lifecycles enables customers to make 
better business decisions that reduce cost and risk. To strengthen the link between IT and business goals, HP 
unveiled the Demand and Portfolio Management Solution, which combines HP consulting, integration and 
education services with automated project and portfolio management software.

Part of the HP Service Management offering, the solution enables companies to increase productivity, minimize 
the risk of project failure and capitalize on change. 

HP Service Management solutions also include new courses for ITIL V3 and enhancements to its ITSM 
Assessment services for SAP® solutions and ISO/IEC 20000. ITIL V3 represents a significant shift in how IT is 
viewed in the greater business context. ITIL V3 has increased focus on managing the service lifecycle with an 
emphasis on how technology can best be leveraged to enhance business value.

Adaptive Infrastructure
HP is leveraging its data center expertise and best practices to define a new portfolio of services under Data 
Center Transformation. The new portfolio includes HP Data Center Services, short cycle service engagements 
that help increase data center efficiency and performance, allowing customers to redeploy assets into new 
business applications. The services address energy efficiency, resource availability, planning, relocation, 
deployment, security, and technology performance, which are central to creating an Adaptive Infrastructure.

“HP Data Center Services were invaluable as we designed our new data center. HP helped us build our 
Technology Center which employed state-of-the-art data center design principles,” said Sandy Teetsel, chief 
technology officer and director of Information Technology, City of Peoria, Ariz. “The entire project went really 
smoothly. There were no unplanned outages as a result of the move, and there were no major equipment failures. 
We consulted with HP to make sure we were designing a data center that was going to meet the needs of the 
city for quite some time.”

BT, HP Expand Alliance with Enhanced Offerings to Help Customers Transform IT Environments

HP and BT (NYSE: BT) today announced an expansion of their alliance to meet growing customer demands 
for standardized and flexible collaborative IT and network services around the globe.

The strengthened alliance positions the two companies as preferred partners in the management of outsourced 
IT and network services and builds on a successful three-year go-to-market model that has attracted more than 
$1.5 billion in contract revenue since 2004 and more than 25 customers, including FirstGroup, Aker Kvaerner 
nd Anglo-American.

Customers increasingly require additional capabilities from both companies to help transform their IT environments, 
drive innovation across their operations and improve business effectiveness and efficiency. The companies’ 
chief executive officers, Mark Hurd of HP and Ben Verwaayen of BT, discussed these opportunities yesterday 
with an audience of more than 100 global chief information officers and corporate customers in Budapest and 
Valencia, on the third anniversary of the alliance.

The joint capabilities offered by the BT HP Alliance are designed to improve the overall customer experience 
and help customers achieve better business outcomes. The enhanced offerings are based on the ITIL-based 
integrated services architecture that has been developed by the alliance and enables customers to reduce risk 
and shorten the time to implement changes in their IT environments. These offerings will help customers provision
global converged network and IT solutions, from the desktop to the data center.

As part of a multi-year agreement, HP will provide BT with the IT infrastructure components of servers, storage, 
software and services to accelerate and expand BT’s service transformation. HP also will help BT transform its 
IT infrastructure into a service-oriented architecture to support new customer business models.

In parallel, BT becomes a key enabler of HP’s own global IT transformation project, which is focused on
improving service and reducing costs, by providing and managing high-performance connectivity between 
HP’s consolidated U.S. data centers and 143 sites in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

"Our customers have benefited from the BT HP Alliance over the past three years and we are committed to 
further strengthening our offerings to provide them with enhanced global solutions for their networked IT needs,"

service and operational efficiencies. The way we are working together will ensure our customers’ demands for 
collaborative IT and networked services are met. Our alliance is designed to bring the value-added services 
offering that our customers want."

HP Business Desktop PC First to Earn EPEAT-Gold Status

HP and the Green Electronics Council today announced that the HP rp5700 Business Desktop PC is the first 
product to meet the stringent requirements that comprise the "gold" status of the Electronic Products 
Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT).

EPEAT-registered products are designated as "bronze," "silver" or "gold" depending on the number of 
environmental features they possess, such as reduced levels of hazardous materials, improved energy 
efficiency, and ease of upgrade and recycle. In January, U.S. President George W. Bush mandated through 
executive order that EPEAT-registered electronic products comprise 95 percent of all federal agency purchases.

"Customers increasingly value environmental aspects of products, such as energy efficiency, provisions for 
reuse and recycling, and materials innovation," said Jeff Omelchuck, executive director of the Green Electronics 
Council, which manages the EPEAT program. "HP is clearly differentiating itself by integrating such features into 
their products as evidenced by the rp5700 PC."

The HP rp5700 Long Lifecycle Business Desktop PC was created with the environment in mind inside and out. 
Built with 95 percent recyclable components and a tool-less chassis design for quick and easy disassembly by 
hand, both the system and the packaging it comes in are easier to recycle. Plastic components in the system 
are made on average of at least 10 percent post-consumer recycled plastics, and the outer packaging contains 
at least 25 percent post-consumer recycled cardboard.

Also designed for improved energy efficiency, the rp5700 desktop features a standard, 80 percent efficient 
power supply that is up to 15 percent more efficient than standard power supplies reducing both overall energy 
usage and the amount of waste heat released into the environment.

HP lab tests have found that the rp5700 desktop PC, in its maximum energy-efficient configuration and paired 
with an HP flat panel monitor, may help customers save as much as 80 percent in power consumption over 
previous generation systems using CRT monitors.(1) The system is also available with an optional solar renewable 
energy source as an alternative power choice for customers.

"HP has been a pioneer of designing products with the goal of reducing environmental impact while maximizing 
overall value for our customers for more than 15 years," said Todd Bradley, executive vice president, Personal 
Systems Group, HP. "We believe, in the long term, what’s right for the environment is what’s good for business."

In addition to the EPEAT-Gold registration, the rp5700 platform meets or exceeds several other environmental 
standards, such as the Environmental Protection Agency’s Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines for post-
consumer recycled content in packaging; and the European Union’s RoHS. It also joins the HP portfolio of 
business desktops introduced in January that meet both the ENERGYSTAR® 4.0 and 80 Plus® energy-
efficiency requirements. Moreover, as with all HP PCs, an IT ECO Declaration the European Nordic country IT 
environmental declaration scheme  is readily available.

Built on the HP rp5700 Point of Sale platform, the new HP rp5700 business desktop features a five-year lifecycle 
the longest of any business PC in the industry. Longer lifecycles help customers avoid frequent platform transitions 
and image rebuilds, resulting in fewer costly software and hardware configurations to manage.

The HP rp5700 business desktop was designed for general business users in such industries as retail, healthcare, 
banking, manufacturing and distribution where long-term stability is paramount. The system features a small form 
factor design and was engineered to run in higher temperatures -- up to 40 C ambient versus the current industry 
standard of 35 C ambient making it ideal for use in enclosures or kiosks.

Availability and pricing

Available in the United States direct from HP or authorized resellers beginning June 4, the HP rp5700 desktop 
may be configured with a broad choice of technology features, such as Intel® Core 2 Duo(2,3) processors up 
to 2.13 GHz, up to 4 gigabytes(4) DDR2 Synch DRAM memory, SATA hard drives as large as 250 GB,(5) factory
-configured RAID factory 1 for real-time data backup and choice of Microsoft Windows Vista Business,(6) Microsoft 
Windows XP or FreeDOS operating systems.(7)

An introductory-level system meeting the EPEAT-Gold criteria, includes an Intel Celeron® 440 processor, 512 MB 
memory and Microsoft Windows XP Pro and is available for an estimated U.S. list price of $817.(7) Additional 
configurations start as low as $648.(7,8) More information about HP rp5700 business desktop is available at

HP Unveils Print 2.0 a New Era for Printing

HP today unveiled Print 2.0, the company’s strategy for making printing relevant and empowering as both
personal and professional content increasingly moves from the desktop to the web.

At HP’s annual Imaging and Printing Conference this morning, Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president of the 
company’s Imaging and Printing Group, described how HP will seek to capture a significant share of the 53 trillion 
digital pages estimated to be printed in 2010 alone an opportunity valued at more than $296 billion.

Joshi identified three key areas of focus of the Print 2.0 strategy:

    * Make it easier to print from websites, such as blogs and travel sites, and bring new printing capabilities to 
online properties;
    * Extend the company’s digital content creation and publishing platforms for example, Snapfish and Logoworks
across customer segments spanning from consumers to enterprises; and
    * Deliver a digital printing platform that increases print speeds and lowers the cost of printing for high-volume 
commercial markets.

In its enterprise imaging and printing portfolio, HP also announced new applications, services and an enhanced 
solution partner program to help businesses improve their imaging and printing workflow, management and 
infrastructure.

"Today, we’re introducing a new era in printing. We’re redefining what it means to print and further accelerating 
the transformation from analog to digital printed pages," said Joshi. "In today’s world of ‘mashed media’ words, 
pictures, video, songs the question becomes ‘How will people publish this content?’ Print 2.0 is the answer. This 
vision centers on empowering our customers to create and consume their content, their way."

Making the web more print-friendly

Content from the Internet accounts for nearly half (48 percent) of all printing done at home. Yet, many of the most 
popular destinations on the web such as blogs and travel sites have limited or non-existent printing capabilities. 
In an effort to broaden and improve the web-printing experience, HP is creating technologies to make it easy to 
print content from the Internet in a useful format.

The company is working with a number of leading Internet destinations and hosting companies to either improve 
their digital printing capabilities or introduce new ones. For example, HP has collaborated with ViaMichelin, a 
leading map provider in Europe with more than 28 million monthly visits to its online mapping service. ViaMichelin’s 
website now offers customers improved map-printing by better aligning what is seen on-screen with what is printed 
on the page, as well as with how maps are used once people are on the road.

HP also has teamed with leading weblog software and services company SixApart, Ltd., creators of Movable 
Type, the world’s most advanced blogging platform, to enable bloggers to add a print button on their blogs. 
Movable Type powers many of the world’s most popular blogs, including BoingBoing.net and Dooce.com, 
which will feature printing functionality. The new blog-printing widget on these sites will allow readers to pick 
and choose the posts they want to print, and skip those they don’t. The blog printing plug-in for Movable Type 
is currently in beta release and is expected to become widely available to users by June 29 at 
www.sixapart.com/pronet/plugins.

HP also plans to introduce the Tabblo Print Toolkit, an embeddable website widget and corresponding web 
service that enables web designers to incorporate print functionality into new and existing websites. The toolkit 
is based on custom template technology developed by Tabblo, a company HP acquired in March, that allows 
users to simply and efficiently arrange content for printing. The Tabblo Print Toolkit is expected to become 
available by June 29 at developer.tabblo.com.

Improving enterprise time to business

HP has added eight imaging and printing solutions to its enterprise portfolio targeted to customers in the higher 
education, public sector, retail, transportation/logistics and financial services industries. Designed to streamline 
information workflows and reduce costs, these applications offer customers industry-specific expertise and a 
single point of contact for a simplified sales process, service and support. These include:

    * Four HP Campus Advantage Solutions targeted to institutions of higher learning. The solutions deliver 
powerful capabilities ranging from mobile printing and user-based, per-page accounting, to the consolidation of 
copying, scanning, imaging and printing devices in a secure networked environment.
    * For government and public sector customers, the HP Common Access Card enables secure imaging and 
printing network authentication.
    * The HP Retail Marketing Automation application transforms the manual, labor-intensive in-store promotion 
and communication process into an industrial, automated one, allowing for quicker time to market.
    * For financial services customers, HP Compliant Document Capture for SEC17a meets the needs of 
capturing regulated fax, email, scan and couriered mail documentation quickly and easily at the point of creation.
    * A first of its kind, the new HP Handheld sp400 All-in-One (AiO), which is aimed at industries such as 
transportation/logistics, manufacturing and retail, simplifies workflow and operations with a portable, easy-to-use, 
high-performance printing solution that applies an image directly to packaging or other surface, eliminating the 
cost and time needed for labeling operations.

HP also introduced four HP Managed Print Services that enable enterprise customers to optimize and manage 
their enterprise imaging and printing environments for improved business results. The new services include the 
HP Print Center Transformation Service, HP Integrated Print Management Service, HP Onsite Document 
Consultant Service and HP Universal Print Driver Consulting Service.

Additionally, the company is now providing enterprise customers with unprecedented access to the latest HP 
and partner technology via the HP Solutions Business Partner Program. Under the program’s new Platinum, 
Gold and Silver tiers, HP partners will benefit in reaching a broader market while HP provides a single point of 
contact for products, support and services for enterprise customers.

Helping small businesses improve marketing effectiveness and productivity

Building on the success of the HP Color Printing Center (www.hp.com/go/color), HP has expanded its in-house 
marketing tools and resources for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) with HP In-House Marketing 
Resource Center software.

This free tool provides users with convenient desktop access to all of HP’s in-house marketing resources and 
new specialized tools for greater cost savings, flexibility and control, such as:

    * HP Print Cost Estimator: This tool quickly highlights the cost advantages of printing specific jobs in-house 
versus outsourcing and is available on networked HP Color LaserJet printers.
    * HP Print View Software: This software enables customers to dynamically view the actual output of marketing 
documents before they hit print.

The new HP Color LaserJet CP3505 will be the first printer to ship with these marketing software tools and 
resources. The printer is designed to boost productivity and deliver bold, brilliant color materials at speeds of 
up to 22 pages per minute in best print quality default mode. The HP Color LaserJet CP3505 will be available 
worldwide June 1 with estimated U.S. street prices ranging from $699 to $1,449.(1)

Backed by a network of experienced graphic designers, HP’s Logoworks is now offering Office Depot’s Design, 
Print & Ship Depot customers custom logo packages, business cards, professional letterhead and website 
design services. Customers can choose from a number of graphic design solutions all aimed at helping their 
businesses succeed. The service is currently available in Office Depot’s more than 1,000 stores nationwide 
and online at www.officedepot.com.

Faster decision making with HP Halo

The Halo Video Exchange Network that makes the HP Halo Collaboration Studio’s telepresence possible now 
circumnavigates the globe. The dedicated fiber optic network was created by HP in partnership with many of 
the world’s leading telecommunications providers, including Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL). In April, 
VSNL and HP signed an agreement that connected the network from India to Europe via the Middle East.

The extension of the network further improves Halo users’ perception of no delay and gives added business 
continuity protection to customers by enabling automatic re-routing of Halo connections during earthquakes or 
other disasters that can disrupt all forms of network traffic.

Independent Research Report Names HP a Leader in the Business Service Management Software Market

HP today announced that it has been named a leader in the business service management (BSM) software 
market by Forrester Research, Inc., a leading analyst firm.

In the Forrester Wave BSM report,(1) HP Software earned the highest score for business service mapping and 
the second highest score for both its overall current product offering and end-to-end monitoring.

Forrester defines BSM as software that dynamically links business-focused IT services to the underlying IT 
infrastructure.

"The acquisition of Mercury Interactive provides HP with a strong BSM solution with a new and improved 
configuration management database (CMDB) strategy," wrote Peter O'Neill and Evelyn Hubbert, analysts at 
Forrester Research and authors of the BSM report. "The HP solution allows IT to either take a back-end approach 
by monitoring the processes supporting the business services via HP Business Process Insight software or by 
monitoring the front end - the end user experience."

HP Extends LaserJet Printing Portfolio to Reach Emerging Markets, In-house Marketers

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 18, 2006 - HP has extended its LaserJet portfolio to address business customers in 
fast-growing emerging markets as well as those looking to print marketing collateral in-house. The portfolio now 
includes an expanded lineup of HP Color LaserJet printers, a relationship with iStockphoto® to facilitate access 
to its online image library, high-performance and versatile all-in-one and monochrome printers, and new services 
and software to enrich the overall printing experience. Many of the products announced today meet the need 
for reliable, efficient printing, which is universal among small businesses. These products are especially 
appealing to customers in countries like China, India, Russia and Brazil as well as customers in North America.

"Whether working from a home office in Alaska or a small business in Shanghai, customers can find an HP 
printing solution that meets their needs," said George Mulhern, senior vice president, LaserJet Business, HP.  
"Unlike our competitors, HP understands that customers are not looking for a one-size-fits-all product line to help 
them increase their marketing effectiveness."

Products available in North America include:
·The HP LaserJet 1018, an affordable monochrome printer that offers the world's smallest footprint for a laser 
printer. Priced starting at $129(1) and expected to be available May 1.
·The HP LaserJet 3050 all-in-one, a compact printer, scanner, copier and fax solution with fast printing speeds 
of up to 19 pages per minute. Priced at $299(1) and currently available.
·The HP LaserJet 5200 series, a wide-format, A3 printer series with HP Instant-On Technology, which reduces 
warm-up time so the first page comes out quickly, regardless of when the printer was last used. The series is 
supported by the HP Easy Printer Care 1.5 printer management tool,(2) priced starting at $1,439(1) and expected 
to be available May 1.

Expanding infrastructure in emerging geographies
To better understand how challenging environmental conditions common in emerging geographies can affect 
a customer's printing experience, HP recently opened a product test center in Shanghai, China. Airborne 
particulate pollution, frequent power surges and outages, and extreme ranges in temperature and humidity are 
among the factors being studied. HP also has expanded distribution to areas of China outside of the major 
cities to reach small business owners who currently have limited access to HP products.

"HP is skilled at identifying end users' specific printing needs and delivering products to meet them a critical 
factor to the company's success within emerging geographies," said Robert Palmer, director, InfoTrends. 
"Instead of sending cast offs to these regions, HP is primed to continue to show leadership worldwide by creating 
localized versions of their latest LaserJet introductions. This product rollout strengthens HP's LaserJet lineup 
considerably, providing strong capabilities at very attractive price points."
