While Alienware is busy trying to make the most powerful laptop available, HP is focusing exlusively on the business market lately, with several new Pentium-based notebooks designed specifically for users in a work environment. This includes six new models, in both their NC line and their Tablet PC lines. Some are already available, and the majority of these notebooks are using dual core “Core Duo” processors, with one model also being made available with Core Solo or Celeron M CPUs.

They also include the capability of being upgraded to 4GB of RAM, and while that may seem excessive at first, there are many business applications, especially in engineering environments, in which that much RAM is almost a must. The prices range from “very cheap” in the $750 range to a more average $1500 range, but not all pricing information is listed in the article currently.
