HP dv9000 With HD DVD

More announcements from HP have arrived today with the launch of a new desktop replacement laptop that marks a number of firsts for the company. While other system builders have shipped laptops with next-generation disc drives inside, HP is releasing its first portable equipped this way in the form of the 17-inch dv9000. Though it ships standard with an 8X DVD rewriter, the new system can be configured with an optional HD DVD drive that can play (but not record) movies and data stored in the new format as well as read and write CDs or DVDs. An HDMI output is built-in -- a crucial new feature needed for some movies to play at 1080p resolution on an HDTV. The dv9000t also represents HP's fastest desktop replacement to date: it can ship with as much as a 512MB GeForce Go 7600 graphics chipset and processors ranging up to a 2GHz Core 2 Duo or 2GHz Turion 64 X2. Pricing starts at $1099 for a base model with an AMD Sempron, 512MB of RAM, and integrated graphics. An Intel-based version with an HD DVD drive and dedicated graphics is $1749.
