It might not even be summer yet for the majority of Canadian elementary and high school students, but that isn’t stopping HP Inc. from unveiling a new line of Pavilion PCs for them to consider purchasing before September.

The new lineup, which includes desktops, notebooks (available in five colours, from “Dragonfly Blue” to “Cardinal Red”), and convertible devices, was announced last week so that students could have plenty of time to save their money over the summer. Or before it even starts.
