HP Pavilion's DV2 and DV3

Description

At CES, HP revealed two new netbook PCs the 12.1-inch DV2 and the 13.3-inch DV3. The first thing you’ll notice about these devices are their slick, glossy finishes, but it wasn’t just their looks that made the devices a CNet Editors’ pick at CES (specifically, the DV2).

The DV2 is supposed to be a step up from netbooks – the step provided by the all-new AMD Athlon Neo platform – powerful enough to run Windows Vista. The CPU is the MV-40, which runs at 1.6 GHz and it comes with ATI Mobility Radeon HD3410 graphics.

The DV2 supports up to 4GB of memory and offers a 500GB hard drive. It will retail for $699. The DV3 starts at $799 and lets you choose between a 2 GHz Athlon X2 QL-62 or a 2.4GHz Turion X2 Ultra ZM-86. It offers up to 8GB of DDR2 RAM and  a choice between  hard drive (160/250/320/400GB).

    Is that not widescreen, looks kinda tall...

    Though I'd buy it. Everyone should avoid dell. Their support sucks, and laptops blow. My plastic is wearing off, my lid creeks and my AC adapter complains that it isn't the correct wattage, even though I've had dell replace my motherboard and power adapter...urgh.

    So buy HP.
