Comes loaded with Windows Vista to avoid netbook nomenclature, up to 4GB RAM support and 500 GB storage
With CES 2009 just a few days away, HP announced less than a inch thin Pavilion dv2 notebook with 12.1-inch LED backlit display, reported CNET.
Pavilion dv2 features AMD's new Neo platform CPU, 1.6GHz Neo MV-40, similar to Intel Atom and ATI Mobility Radeon 3410 graphics. Consumers can expect to see Pavilion dv2 in March at a price range of $600 (Rs. 29,000)-$800 (Rs. 40,000).
HP Pavilion dv2 measures 1.3 inch at its thickest point and weighs about 3.8 pounds. AMD's new Neo platform for netbooks will compete with Intel Atom platform. HP loaded Windows Vista to break the netbook nomenclature shell. The dv2 is equipped with up to 4GB RAM (only one slot) support, up to 500 GB storage, WiFi (802.11b/g/n), HDMI port, 8x DVD Burner, webcam, Bluetooth and WWAN configurations.
HP also announced Pavilion dv3 with 13.3-inch LED backlit display. The dv3 features 2.3GHz AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM-84 dual-core mobile processor and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 series graphics. The dv3 will have price tag of $800 (Rs. 40,000) to $1,200 (Rs. 58,500) and pre-orders to begin soon.
After it showcased Voodoo Firefly a few days ago and now Pavilion dv2 as well as dv3, HP's intention to steal the show at CES 2009 is fairly visible. (story Link)
