HP Pavilion HDX brings gaming standards to notebook
Buying a computer is definitely not an impulse purchase, and when it comes to the issue of notebooks, you definitely have a fairly large amount of selections to choose from. HP has bought the Voodoo PC outfit last year, and you can finally see the results of their acquisition which ought to be released sometime later this year in the form of the HP Pavilion HDX gaming and entertainment notebook. You can definitely tell that the Pavilion HDX is a true blue gaming machine from first glance since no sane business-class notebook will come with a 20″ display in the first place.
Additional features include an unusually huge bottom that is large enough to hold a full-featured Windows Media Center remote on the left hand side of the full size keyboard, with touch sensitive media keys that are lined up above the upper part of the keyboard. Tipping the scales at 12 pounds, the Pavilion HDX is definitely not a notebook that you would want to lug around unless you’re willing to get your gaming fix at the expense of a hunched back many years from now.
There is no word on the exact details of the Pavilion HDX’s innards, but chances are it will come with Intel’s Santa Rosa-based line of Core 2 Duo processors that have a maximum speed of 2.4GHz. As with any self-respecting gaming notebook, the Pavilion HDX is tipped to come with NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce Go 8000-series graphics processing unit. Additional entertainment options can be purchased separately, and these include a webcam and an HD DVD drive with HDMI input.
