HP DV2 Breaks Cover


By Shane McGlaun

Ever since the MacBook Air launched consumers have had a bit of a fascination with super thin notebooks. Back at CES 2009 in January, HP was showing off its new thin notebook called the DV2. The thin little machine wasn’t as svelte as a MacBook Air, but it looked more usable to my eyes.

HP has announced that the DV2 is now officially available starting at $799, making it much cheaper than the Air. The machine uses the new AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 CPU that it aimed specifically at ultra-portable machines. Other features include a 12.1-inch LCD with a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 and LED backlighting.

The DV2 measures 11.5-inches L x 9.45-inches D x 0.93 to 1.29-inches H. HP uses Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit allowing it to see all 4GB of RAM included. Graphics are via ATI HD 3410 with 512MB of dedicated RAM. Power comes from a 6-cell battery and the machine has a DVD burner and HDMI out along with 802.11n Wi-Fi. Storage is to a 320GB HDD. The little machine is very nice looking to boot.
