There’s been a news leak on new notebooks from HP, where the Pavilion dv8 leads the way with its use of Intel’s mobile Core i7 processor, accompanied by an 18.4″ display, a Blu-ray drive, 4GB RAM and a 640GB hard drive that places this well clear in the desktop replacement category. It is expected to retail for $2,043 when available. Apart from that, there are also whispers of two models running on Intel’s CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors – the 11.6″ Pavilion dm1 and the 13.3″ dm3 which will cost around $690 and $970, respectively. HP’s sub-brands are also not exempt from such news leaks as the Voodoo Envy 15 will most probably be released as well, making it a larger and faster version of last year’s model while the Compaq Mini 311c will be a comfortable netbook with the standard Atom processor, 1GB RAM and 160GB hard drive coupled with NVIDIA’s Ion platform for a more enjoyable graphical experience.
