I came across this blog and immediately became interested. HP is releasing a new laptop that is geared to music production on the go. Interscope Geffen A&M chairman Jimmy Iovine and legendary producer Dr. Dre and HP unveiled the HP ENVY 15 Beats limited edition notebook PC. The system comes with a custom pair of Dr. Dre headphones and some real kick ass production software. The computer itself has great specs, including a not-yet-released processor from Intel. This laptop seems to be aimed towards multiple markets including the audiophile, the music producer, and even the gamer, as it is easily powerful enough to run today's most popular and power hungry video games on the market.
"We started this journey with the headphones to improve the transmission of sound between record makers and consumers," Iovine said during the press conference today. "What's out there is not representative of what you hear in the recording studio. As we went on this journey, we found that computers were in the way. Artists and producers want their sound repaired in digital audio. Computer companies charge $1,000 for computers but only spend 50 cents for speakers. With HP, we found a partner willing to take the step to improve the overall sound in the PC. This is for anyone who plays music." "The laptop is the new stereo and that's why we're putting out this computer with incredible sound," Dr. Dre said. (Billboard.com)
