HP Pavilion dm4 and dm4 Beats Edition

HP Pavilion dm4 updated with a subwoofer and Beats Edition

HP also announced an updated Pavilion dm4, their 14 inch consumer notebook model. On the outside, it looks almost identical to its predecessor launched 6 months ago, but the new Pavilion dm4 now sports Beats branded speakers (versus Altec Lansing on the previous laptop) and adds a new mini subwoofer unit.

The new Pavilion dm4 is equipped with a selection of Intel Sandy Bridge processors for you to choose from, two DDR3 RAM slots, hard drive configurations that go all the way up to 1 TB, HD webcam and 1366 x 768 resolution 14 inch display. HP is also offering the option to add on THE latest graphics card from AMD, the Radeon 7470M, which is an entry-level GPU but a good sign of things to come… perhaps we will see AMD FirePro equivalents for HP’s 2012 EliteBook business laptops.

Another brand new feature is Beats Edition of the Pavilion dm4, which gives the notebook a spray of black and red, similar to the paint job given to the Envy 14 Beat Edition. The Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition comes with a red backlit keyboard which does look pretty slick.

HP mentions the regular Pavilion dm4 will have a starting price of $630, while the Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition will start at $900, though the latter will obviously be more decked out than the regular dm4 base model to justify the price difference. Both notebooks will be available for order beginning December 18th, which may be cutting a little too close to be a suitable Christmas gift but you may still have enough time to celebrate the start of 2012 with a brand new Pavilion dm4.

    Although I am excited to see a new DM4 model, is this a sure sign that it will be another 6 months before the 3rd generation i7 is available in this model or do you think it will be sooner?
