Mammoth notebook will ship with a 2.4GHz Core 2 processor, 4GB of memory and 400GB of storage space

Yesterday morning, DailyTech brought you word of HP's mammoth Pavilion HDX 20.1" notebook. Details were light on the new offering from HP, but leaked images shows the notebook from numerous angles.

Today, we have official confirmation of the Pavilion HDX which also goes by the name "The Dragon." The notebook packs in a WSXGA+ screen resolution on its 20.1" BrightView display. That display is powered by an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics processor with 256MB of dedicated video memory. An Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 processor provides the heart of the system along with 4GB of DDR2 memory. On the storage side of things, 400GB of storage is provided via two 4200RPM 200GB SATA HDDs. The optical drive used in the Pavilion HDX is an HD DVD unit with DL DVD+-RW capabilities.

On the multimedia side of things, an HP HDTV Hybrid TV tuner is included along with HP's Mobile Remote. As mentioned on Monday, the Pavilion HDX features four Altec Lansing speakers and an HP Triple Bass Reflex subwoofer.

Other features include the Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN Draft-N network adapter, 5-in-1 media reader, four USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI port, one eSATA port and a FireWire port.

The 15.5 pound notebook measures 18.7" x 13.4" x 2.3 inches and will ship with Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. There is no word on pricing or availability, but expect to pay an arm and a leg for it.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think this would be better if it were simply sold as the VoodooPC that it is. No offense inteneded to anyone, but this is the ulitmate in over-indulgence that no HP customer will buy. Its like Volkswagon taking a lambo, and putting VW badges on it, then trying to sell it.

I See it like this:
1. Buy VoodooPC
2. Have them design an HP branded notebook
3. ???

This is more likely an HP design to counter the Dell XPS M2010 that has been out for about a year.
