HP Pavilion dv4i appears on HP official site; starts at $799

HP Pavilion dv4i as seen on HP's official site

During one of my obsessive visits to HP’s notebook pages, I have just spotted that they’ve just added the Intel Core i5 boasting Pavilion dv4i to their consumer product line. Strange, because there wasn’t any official announcement made during yesterday’s flood of CES product announcements by HP. Anyway, here it is – the appearance of the dv4i from $799 on HP.com (the official website) squashes earlier internet rumors of a “gold” colored dv4i and $949 retail price.

The Pavilion dv4i gives you a choice of Intel’s Core i5 520M (2.4 GHz) or 540M (2.53 GHz) dual core processors, whose Turbo Boost feature can speed them up to 2.93 GHz and 3.06 GHz respectively. Other improvements versus the previous Pavilion dv4 include DDR3 RAM (up to 8 GB), hard disk options up to 500 GB (with 7200 RPM standard) and a 512 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550 graphics card, which replaces the Nvidia GeForce G105M on the old model (hurrah??). Cosmetically, nothing has changed on the Pavilion dv4i, right down to the all-black glossy case with circular-spiral patterns on the lid and palmrest.

HP Pavilion dv4i main features:

  • Intel Core i5 Mobile
  • 2 DDR3 RAM slots
  • Hard disk bay (up to 500 GB), 7200 RPM is standard
  • ATI Mobility 4550 graphics (512 MB)
  • 14 inch glossy display (1280 x 800)
  • Optical drive (Optional Blu-ray)
  • 2 headphone output jacks; 1 microphone jack
  • 3 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI out, VGA and LAN ports
  • Expansion Port 3 for optional dock

    Is the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550 better than the Nvidia GeForce G105M???

      Well, they’re supposedly comparable, but the ATI may be slightly better (and it’s newer). The G105M is apparently a refresh of the older 9400M

    Anyone know if those hideous “spiral patterns” are some sort of removable sticker or are they permanently fused on there?

    • Brad January 9, 2010 Reply

      Pretty unfortunately for you, they’re permanent. And they’re very resistant to scratches too
