HP Introduces PC with Built-In iPod Dock
From CNET.com, yesterday HP introduced the Media Center m7000 Series PhotoSmart PC with a built-in dock for iPods located on the top of the tower case. One model is also slated to include a built-in camera dock for HP digital cameras.
In addition, the new PCs are slated to come in a range of 3 silver-based lightly-shaded colors, mimicing the colored iMacs in recent years.
Some might see at least a hint of a resemblance to Apple Computer's recent computer color schemes in the latest HP designs. But Tom Anderson, vice president of marketing for the Consumer PC Global Business Unit at Hewlett-Packard said HP wouldn't have made the changes unless customers preferred the new palate.
"We got a very warm reception for this. We didn't do it because Apple did it. We did it because our customers told us that they liked it"
The new model PCs are expected to go on sale in April, with prices starting at $379.
