So much for getting out of hardware
The outfit which famously thought about getting out of the PC business is now telling us that it is going to launch several new notebooks running new Intel Ivy Bridge processors. HP, which thought about flogging its low margin PC business, says that the new HP Pavilion range notebooks will go on sale late in April.
The new HP Pavilion range which will have Intel Ivy Bridge processors include the dv4, dv6, and dv7. There will be two smaller systems with quad 2.3GHz Core i7-3610M, while the dv7 has a similarly four-core 2.6GHz Core i7-3720QM.
The dv4 has 4GB of RAM and a 1TB drive and has been locked at 1,600MHz. It also has a GeForce GT 630M video card. The dv6 will have 750GB of hard-drive while the dv7 will sport two single TB drives linked together as well as 8GB of RAM. It should also ship with a GeForce GT 650M for graphics.
There will also be an entry-level Pavilion g4, which will ship with AMD's Trinity platform. Two models will have the dual-core 2.6GHz A6-4400M, which should have an improved Radeon HD 7520G for its integrated graphics.
