The mosaic approach is an extension of the MUSE (materials, usability, sensory appeal and experience) design philosophy, which was introduced in May 2010.
Mosaic fuses together the multi-faceted elements of MUSE – including rich colours, premium materials and purposeful shapes – to form one comprehensive design language that spans the consumer notebook portfolio.
Similar to a mosaic art piece, each HP notebook line represents a small piece of the canvas that, when combined, builds into a “beautiful picture of the HP product family,” the company said.
It added that the HP Pavilion g6 is inspired by close connections and interlocking layers, featuring curved, bevelled edges with “elements of precision.”
The g6 notebook is available in sparkling black, winter blue and ruby red, and features a bowl-shape keyboard deck with island style keyboard and numeric keypad alongside a textured touchpad with bowl-set curvature.
It also has integrated HP webcam, Dolby Advanced Audio and Altec Lansing speakers and USB 3.0 for faster file transfers. A chrome strip bordering the speaker serves as a visual cue for audio, while an exposed speaker bar offers better sound projection.
Both the g-series and the dv-series come with HP CoolSense, which helps a notebook operate at a lower temperature, and HP ProtectSmart for hard drive protection. The dv-series also comes with the HP SimplePass innovation which allows for fingerprint identification for notebook user profiles.
