We told you it was coming, and put our hands on it at CES, and now HP has released the Pavilion Dv2. Hitting that potential sweet spot between the netbook and normal high end laptops, this HP appears to have quite a bit going for it.
Priced at just $749, the Dv2 runs Vista 64-bit on a AMD Neo 1.6GHz processor, and comes standard with 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. The screen is slightly larger then the standard netbook at 12.1″, allowing you to run at 1280×800 on the ATI Mobility Radeon HD3410. That means 720p to those who keep track. The Dv2 also has a DVD drive, which has been a sticking point for many netbook buyers.
Expect to see the Dv2 at your favorite authorized dealer soon. We’ll have a detailed review in a while too, so if you want to hold off until then, we’ll understand.
