HP brings Digital Entertainment Centers @ to CES

HP kicked out a couple of new Digital Entertainment Centers. Both the z552 and the z555 run on Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and have that new LightScribe direct-to-disc labeling technology, 16x double-layer, dual-format DVD drives, front panel 9-in-1 memory card readers, and 512MB of RAM. The main differences between the two: the z552 has a 200GB hard drive, dual NTSC TV tuners, and an ATI RADEON X300 SE PCI-Express graphics card, while the z555 has a 250GB hard drive, a single ATSC over-the-air high definition TV tuners, and an nVidia GeForce 6600 PCI-Express graphics card. Oh yeah, there’s one other big difference: the z552 will retail for $1,499 and the z555 will retail for $1,999. Both are due out by spring.
