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.

Oh noes, excessive screen size! Nobody needs a screen that big, it's irresponsible and causes global warming. We need a ban on any notebook with screens larger than 10.1" and less than 20 hours of battery life per charge!

*rolls eyes*

Well for a laptop a 20.1" screen is a tad big. I mean portability isn't there at that size. I think the 17" widescreens we have now for laptops are plenty big. I have 15.4" UXGA screen on my laptop and its plenty big.

I agree with people that whats the point of throwing a top notch processor, a ton of RAM, and a brand new plenty capable graphics card in it when you're going to cripple it with 4200 rpm hard drives? Even in RAID 0 they're still going to suck. If its for the heat at least stick 5400 rpm drives in it. 4200 rpm drives are for small, thin laptops where performance isn't the point (personally I wouldn't use a laptop with 4200 rpm drives).
