HP to expand HD options

Hewlett-Packard will be one of the first major PC builders to sell systems containing a hybrid HD drive, writes PC World. Although specific computers and prices have yet to be mentioned, the company says it intends to incorporate LG's GGW-H10N, better known as the Super Multi Blue. The drive is able to read both Blu-Ray and HD DVD discs; it can only write to CD, DVD and Blu-Ray however, the last at 2x speed.

HP is promising that computers with the drive will have HDMI outputs, and use HDCP-compliant GeForce 8000-series video cards. The latter will decrease CPU usage with PureVideo HD, and will also be specially modified by HP, with optimized chipsets and closer integration of CyberLink's movie software. The H10N should be available in HP machines as of four to six weeks from today.
