Palo Alto, Calif. — Hewlett-Packard released a slew of new products late last month, including a high-end Pavilion notebook, the first to hit stores with Intel’s new Pentium III 1GHz mobile processor.

The company took the unprecedented step of upstaging Intel’s announcement of its new chip by placing ads for the Pavilion 6396 in CompUSA’s March 18 circular. Intel intended to officially announce the processor the following day. The notebook is now shipping. [This Week In Consumer Electronics]
