    HP Pavilion HDX Dragon

    We reviewed the HP HDX last year and liked this "notebook" very much, it has some of the greatest multimedia features around and has a great design.  The one major knock against it was that the graphics card, an ATI HD2600, just didn’t seem to do the HDX justice for its size.  HP has remedied this problem by now offering the Nvidia GeForce 8800M GTS 512MB graphics card as an option.  This will give the GTX desktop caliber performance.

    Also updated on the HDX is the ability to configure Blu-Ray or HD DVD.  To support those hi-definition formats, HP now also offers a WUXGA XHD Ultra Brightview screen display so you really can watch hi-def movies in a meaningful way.

    The updated HDX should be available starting sometime this month from HPShopping.com and will start at a price of $1,999.
