HP dv6200 and dv9200
HP on Tuesday began updating its extensive notebook line in advance of Windows Vista. Having already announced the Vista-equipped tx1000 tablet, the company today switched its attention to its larger entertainment portables. The new dv6200t (pictured) starts with Vista Home Basic and has seen its base specifications boosted to a 1.73GHz Celeron M (up from 1.6GHz) and a larger 80GB hard drive; the system can be configured with as much as a 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM, a 200GB drive and GeForce Go 7400 graphics.
In the desktop replacement is the dv9200t, HP's newly refreshed desktop replacement. The upgraded version of the dv9000 sees an upgrade to a minimum 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo (from a 1.73GHz Core Duo), a doubling of memory to 1GB, and an increase in storage from 80GB to 120GB. It as well as the dv6200t will go on sale first in Japan on January 29th, a day in advance of the global Windows Vista launch. North American versions are expected shortly. [via Impress Watch]
