HP today announced that the Pavilion dv2z, HP's affordable thin and light notebook PC, can now be configured to order from HP Direct. Consumers' options include AMD Athlon Neo single- or dual-core processors and Turion Neo dual-core processors, integrated or discrete graphics, and two striking finishes in Espresso black and Moonlight white. Here is more info on the new HP notebook:
"The dv2z measures just under 1-inch thin and weighs 3.81 pounds, making it easy to carry in any backpack or bag. It also features a 12.1-inch diagonal LED BrightView display that is mercury free, while the notebook is ENERGY STA? qualified and EPEAT Silver registered. Its nearly full-size keyboard provides a comfortable computing experience. The magnesium-aluminum alloy case offers lightweight durability and HP ProtectSmart prevents hard drive data loss that can occur when notebooks are jarred or dropped.
Powerful discrete graphics and an optional Blu-ray drive provide a true high-definition entertainment experience which can be displayed on an HDTV via the HDMI port. SRS Premium Sound pours through Altec Lansing speakers delivering immersive audio. HP MediaSmart software lets consumers enjoy their photos, music, Internet TV and video in an easy-to-use application. And hard drive options up to 500 gigabytes provide plenty of room for digital media and data.
The dv2z features optional mobile broadband with Gobi, the first built-in 3G modem which allows consumers to connect to multiple cellular networks using a single, embedded device. A built-in Webcam and dual-array microphone makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family. Consumers also have a choice of graphic options which include the ATI Mobility Radeon HD3410 discrete graphics for enhanced HD video experience or the ATI Mobility Radeon X1250 integrated graphics for longer battery life. New AMD dual-core processors provide power for listening to music, viewing photos and conducting computing activities while running up to 5 hours on battery.
