Sith happens: HP Star Wars laptop arrives in Australia early November
HP's Sith Lord inspired Star Wars laptop will land in Australian retailers from early November, starting at AUD$1,299. Adorned in a design that’s distinctly dark-side, the HP Star Wars Special Edition Notebook is emblazoned with images of Darth Vader, Storm Troopers, and the Death Star, and preloaded with unique content spanning the franchise's 40 year history.
This includes wallpapers, screensavers, and customised sounds that replace Windows 10's standard beeps and boops. Fans will also find excerpts from select Star Wars e-books, select trailers, and the first Marvel Star Wars comic.
The Star Wars themed machine is powered by a sixth generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce 940M GPU with 2GB of VRAM. It's 15.6-inch screen runs at 1080p, ships with a 1TB HDD, and is said to run for up to seven hours per charge.
HP will also release a Star Wars themed wireless mouse and laptop sleeve, retailing for AUD$49 each. The notebook and its accessories will be available through HP's online store and through major local retailers.
