HP Pavilion (computer)

HP Pavilion (computer)

HP Pavilion is a line of personal computers produced by Hewlett-Packard and introduced in 1995. The name is applied to both desktops and laptops for the Home and Home Office product range.

When HP merged with Compaq, it took over Compaq's existing naming rights agreement. As a result, HP sells both HP and Compaq-branded machines. Computers can be ordered either directly from the factory or over the phone, and can be customized through choosing desired specifications. This is known as a CTOoption


In 1995, The HP Pavilion PC marks the company's highly successful introduction into the home-computing market. Dave Packard publishes The HP Way, a book that chronicles the rise of HP and gives insight into the business practices, culture and management style that helped make it a success. The industry's first low-cost, high-speed small infrared transceiver allows wireless "point and shoot" data exchange in a wide range of portable computing applications such as phones, computers, printers, cash registers, ATMs, digital cameras and more.

The First HP Pavilion PC

The HP pavilion 5030 was HP's first multimedia PC designed specifically for the home market, and it went on to become a market leader in consumer PCs. It featured a quad-speed CD-ROM drive, Altec Lansing speakers, software for online service access and Microsoft Windows 95. This entry-level model features an Intel Pentium 75 MHz processor, 8 MB (8 MiB) RAM and an 850 MB hard drive.

Take Action. Make Art

HP and MTV held a contest for young people around the world to help design a special edition HP notebook. The theme: the cause that is most personal to you. It all starts with your personal view. Imagine that your design is a positive thought, a belief, a message you want to tell the world. Your take on how to make our planet or your community a better place. The contest went from September 5, 2007 to October 17, 2007 and over 8,500 designs from 112 countries were submitted.

"Asian Odyssey" the personal design of 20-year old Joao Oliveira of Porto, Portugal, was chosen as the winner of the "Take Action. Make Art" global notebook-design competition.
