HP reveals Sandy Bridge laptops

Intel turbo boost in side
The maker of expensive printer ink, HP has been listing the specs of its future range of laptops.

If you have a look at the outfit's US product support pages you can see a list of the next batch of  models and their specs. One model has Intel's Core i7-2820QM 2.3GHz processor, which HP says can manage a turbo boost speed of 3.4GHz.

There is also one laptop with an i7-2630QM 2GHz processor with a turbo speed of 2.90GHz. HP makes a big thing about how they have a Thermal Design Power of 45 watts. Quite why we are unsure. Normally mainstream Intel laptop processors have a TDP of 25 or 35 watts which means that these could be chucking out a bit of heat unless HP has done something clever with the cooling.

The laptops have got SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, in addition to standard USB 2.0 ports. The laptops have ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 and Radeon HD 5470 graphics processors. We expect to see them at CES.
