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).
