Slew of PC announcements to get your computing claws into

HP has announced its updated range of notebooks and desktop PCs just days before CES 2011 kicks off.

On the portable PC front, HP has updated the Envy 17 ($TBA), Pavilion Dv6 ($899.99), Pavilion Dv7 ($999.99), and Pavilion Dm1 ($449.99) notebooks with second-gen Intel Core processors and AMD's Radeon HD 6800 series graphics.

Additionally, the Envy 17 packs a 17.3-inch HD BrightView display, AMD switchable graphics, Intel's Wireless Display tech, HP's CoolSense technology, and up to 2TB of storage.

The Pavilion Dm1 with a 11.6-inch BrightView display, will deliver 1080p multi-media playback courtesy of an AMD Fusion APU while other notable specs include 750GB of storage and an optional external Blu-ray player.

While the innards of the HP Mini 210 netbook ($349.99) remain the same, it does get a series of new plaid design lids and a reported battery life of around 11 hours.

Moving into desktop PC territory, and HP has unveiled the p6700 (starting at $300), s5700 ($330) and the HPE-500 ($600) Pavilion PCs. Configurations for the p6700 start with the Pentium E5700, while you can expect an AMD Phenom II 1045T hexacore processor for the HPE-500, and a dual-core Athlon II 260 processor for the slimline s5700. Beats Audio which has proved popular on HP's notebook range, will also be available for the new desktop PCs.

If touchscreen tech is more your thing the HP Touchsmart is set to get new software to support apps for Twitter and a touch version of Facebook. The update will be available as a free update for current Touchsmart owners.

HP's new range is set to be available in the US from January 9th. There's no news on UK pricing or launch dates, but we'll keep you posted on that front as soon as we hear about it.
