HP is getting ready to announce a revamped notebook lineup in the coming days and apparently some of it has been uncovered in advance courtesy of a pair of leaks. According to Engadget
, an 18.4-inch desktop replacement will be heading the pack sporting one of the first mobile Core i7 processors, the 720QM, as well as 640GB of storage and 4GB of memory.
As detailed in a previously leaked Intel roadmap
, the 1.6GHz quad-core chip will come with 6MB of cache, Hyper-threading support, and will scale up to 2.8GHz via Turbo Boost. Pricing for this system, dubbed Pavilion dv8, is listed at about 1,427 Euros (or the equivalent of $2,043).
Additionally HP will be launching two models using Intel's CULV processors, the 11.6-inch Pavilion dm1 and 13.3-inch dm3. Both will come with 1366 x 768 glossy displays, with the former boasting 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive for the equivalent of $690 in Europe, and the latter double the memory and a larger 500GB hard drive for about $970. The Pavilion dm3 will also offer a cheaper AMD Neo flavor.
Last but certainly not least, HP is supposedly readying an Ion-powered netbook to be known as the Mini 311. This model will sport an 11.6-inch display, non-DX10 Nvidia Ion LE graphics and 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive and a six cell battery.
