Laptops based on the Yukon platform will be similar in size to other ultraportable laptops – some of the most prominent examples include Apple’s MacBook Air, the Lenovo X300 and the Sony Vaio TT series – but should be available for a much more affordable price tag. HP is among the first companies to announce a notebook using the Athlon Neo processor, the Pavilion dv2, which will start at $699 and top out at $899 for standard configurations.
Other specs for the single-core Athlon Neo processor include a 512KB L2 cache, Direct X 9 graphics, support for 667MHz DDR2 memory and a thermal envelope of 15 watts. A dual-core part, codenamed “Conesus,” will arrive in the second half of this year.
