Boasting advanced security features, a 64-bit processor and built-in wireless, the new HP Compaq nx6125 Notebook PC has just been released, and at a low price point. The notebook, which comes in three configurations, uses AMD Turion 64 mobile technology, and is in fact the first notebook to do so. Security has been well catered for with the biometrics fingerprint reader, which provides much better security than a password (and much better than no password!) The nx6125 is also designed to be thin and light into the bargain.

"The machine itself is really a thin and light class machine," said Dan Reio, marketing manager, commercial notebooks and tablet PCs at HP Canada. The notebooks are meant to be portable machines, although Reio did say they could act as desktop replacements -- even though that's not what they were designed for. The real selling point for resellers is in the nx6125's mobility, features and price, he said.

"It definitely features a great mobile experience," Reio said. The nx6125 is being offered through HP's Smart Buy program, which traditionally means resellers are offered more margin. That's the case with the nx6125, as well. Reio said HP is offering resellers more margin while providing solid technology configurations and aggressive price points.
