HP and Compaq unleash a flood of new notebooks

Notebook Italia is famous for leaking upcoming notebooks ahead of their official launch and today is no exception. The site is overflowing with information on new notebooks product lines from HP and Compaq.

The Pavilion dv2600, dv6600 and dv9600 notebooks represent 14.1" (WXGA), 15.4" (WXGA) and 17" (WXGA+ or WSXGA) screen sizes respectively. The Pavilion dv2600 series is only available with Intel Core 2 Duo processors and can be equipped with Intel GMA X3100 or NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS graphics solutions.

Stepping up to the dv6600 gives users the choice of Celeron, Core 2 Duo, Sempron, Turion or Athlon 64 X2 processors depending on the model selected. Graphics options include the Intel GMA X3100, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M or GeForce 7100M.

The dv9600 series of notebooks, like its smaller dv6600 sibling, can be had with both AMD and Intel power. The dv9600 also gains one more graphics option over the dv6600: the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS. Due to its bulk, the dv9600 also can accommodate dual hard drives up to a maximum of 500GB (2 x 250GB).

All Pavilion dvXXXX models can be equipped with numerous WiFi and Bluetooth chipsets from Intel and Broadcom, and all feature Altec Lansing speakers and HDMI connectivity.

HP's Pavilion tx1300 is an AMD-only notebook featuring the NVIDIA C51M chipset paired up with the MCP51 southbridge. The notebook features a 12.1" (WXGA) display, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 graphics, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth.

Finally, there are new budget 15.4" (WSXGA) models in the form of the HP G7000 (Compaq Presario C700) and HP G6000 (Compaq Presario C500). The G7000 and G6000 share similar feature sets, but the former goes for Intel/X3100 while the latter goes for AMD/GeForce Go 6100 for the processor/GPU.

According to Notebook Italia, all of HP's new notebooks will be officially unveiled this Tuesday at the Intel Developer Forum. Stay tuned for DailyTech's live coverage from the show.
