HP announces Pavilion Verde and Pavilion Phoenix eco-PCs, 25-inch display

HP's bringing a little fiesta to the green game this morning, announcing the new Energy Star-qualified Pavilion Verde a6645f (pictured) and the Pavilion Phoenix Special Edition a6655f desktops along with the new w2558c 25.5-inch display. Both the $579 Circuit City-exclusive Verde and $659 Best Buy-exclusive Phoenix claim a 45-percent energy savings over traditional PCs and sport 5GB of RAM, a LightScribe dual-layer burner, and Vista Home Premium, but the Phoenix is the hotrod of the pair, packing an AMD Phenom X4 9150e quad-core processor over the Verdes' Athlon X2 4850e dual-core unit. The w2558 display seems nice and flexible, with HDMI inputs, a 15-in-1 card reader, 2.0 megapixel webcam and multiple USB ports, but we'll wait for specs a little more detailed than "fast" response time and "high" brightness before we plunk down our $599. Both machines should hit their respective big-box stores on November 9th, and the display should be out now -- check it out after the break.
