HP Star Wars Special Edition Notebook : A Tech Blogger’s Funside


HP recently announced a Star Wars branded special edition notebook with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in the corner. Though a lot of Star Wars custom themes are here but more or less the design is similar to that of a HP Pavilion series notebook. This notebook is described as dark side inspired.

A Tech Blogger will always go for specs in any device and this one is no exception. The specs of the notebook include a 15.6 inches 1920×1080 IPS panel, 1 TB hard drive, Intel’s 6th generation Skylake Core i5-6200U along with Intel HD 520 graphics and 6 GB of dual channel mode DDR4 RAM. According to HP, the 5 pound device has an optical drive so that one can watch Star Wars discs and for extra sound system boost there is a Bang & Olufsen speakers. Some of the design specifications are discussed below:

The Special edition HP notebook box of course has Star War images inscribed in it. As soon as you open up the box of your notebook you will find another box inside with the picture of Darth Vader himself. The laptop is held in place inside the box by a Sinear TIE Advanced x1 fighter. Further you will find solar panels of Vader’s Twin Ion Engine fighter in the packaging and on the top deck you will find the TK-421, a Storm Trooper. So over all more or less you will find Star Wars Universe baddies every here and there. Along with a good collection of Star Wars baddies images, concept arts, wallpapers and various other assets of Star Wars the background image of X-Wing guidance system just behind trackpad is of worth notice.

Some of the cool specifications are given below:
