HP has just quietly slipped out a version of the Pavilion dm4 consumer laptop with an Intel 2011 Sandy Bridge processor update, AMD Radeon 6000M series mobile graphics and a new color for its casing.
The new HP Pavilion dm4x laptop now gives you a fresh selection of three Sandy Bridge Core i5 dual core processors from 2.3 GHz onwards up to the 2.7 GHz Core i7-2620M. You also get hard disk choices with a base capacity of 500 GB (5400 RPM) up to a fast and spacious 750 GB (7200 RPM speed) disk. Other than that, other specifications such as port selection, HD webcam and 14 inch 1366 x 768 LED backlit display from the original Pavilion dm4 remain.
Sadly, there is still no word of any backlit keyboard option (which I have a feeling might persuade some ‘MacBook Pro shoppers’ to pick the Pavilion series instead; I have more to elaborate on this matter at a later date).
Fortunately for the style conscious, there is anew ‘dark umber’ color option for the Pavilion dm4x, which is a fancy name for either metallic gold or beige, which brings your notebook to look ever-so-slightly closer, though not quite there yet, to the upscale black Envy 14 Beats Edition.
The HP Pavilion dm4x starts at $730 and is full configurable.
