The new HP G61 series is simply elegant. Its highly-polished reflective top cover and palm rest area complement the matte finish everywhere else. The HP Imprint finish in piano black on the top cover and in silver surrounding the keyboard provides greater durability than traditional painted surfaces. HP's Design team has been recognized by distinguished design institutions, including International CES, iF International Forum, ID Magazine, Good Design and Red Dot International.
The HP G61 series delivers easy-to-use entertainment. Enjoy full-screen HD TV and movie playback on the crystal-clear 16:9 15.6" diagonal HP Brightview display.(8) Or view your PC content on your HD TV by connecting it through the HDMI port (cable sold separately). Burn audio CDs and DVDs to share your favorite songs and video clips with friends and family. Built-in Altec Lansing speakers bring your entertainment to life. And the 5:1 digital media reader enables photo transfer in seconds for easy upload to Snapfish or printing on your HP Photosmart printer.
