Not to be outdone by Apple, HP Today decided to throw their own little unveiling party in Berlin, Germany.  HP took the opportunity to announce no less than seventeen new notebooks and declare their continued dominance in the mobile market space.   Here we cover the Pavilion consumer notebooks that were released to the world via Europe:

An update to the tx2000z convertible tablet PC was announced.  Not too much different from the tx2000z exists here outside of a processor bump and upgrade to the availability of ATI HD 3200 graphics.  The tx2500z of course has both touch and pen enabled screen technology.  We’re a little sad to see there’s still no Intel processor option for this machine.

For full specs, just check out the data sheet here:

The HP dv7t is an update to the Pavilion dv9700t, it’s a pure desktop/entertainment play.  Following is a quick run down on some of the features of this notebook:

  • Play Blu-ray movies using the optional built-in Blu-ray drive.
  • Make a statement with a streamlined design wrapped in onyx and chrome HP Imprint  finish.
  • Experience the evolution of award-winning HP Imprint finish now in metallics with matching input devices providing great durability.
  • Get a clean frameless look with the optional 17.0" diagonal HP BrightView Infinity display.
  • Experience premium audio with built-in HP Triple Bass Subwoofer.
  • Expand your storage and back up your data using optional dual hard drives.
  • Create personalized, silkscreen-quality DVD and CD labels with optional LightScribe.
  • Chat face-to-face or capture video clips using the HP Webcam and integrated microphone.
  • Simplify your password management with the optional integrated fingerprint reader.

The dv7t series Mesh Imprint features a grid-like pattern for subtle contrast to the liquid appearance of the metallic finish. The streamlined look is enhanced with a color-matched keyboard and touchpad. And touch media controls light up and become visible only when the system is powered on further enhancing the clean appearance.

Specs wise HP is being a little vague about this machine.  In the data sheet they provided all they claim is to have an "Nvidia GeForce GS & GT graphics available".  You can be fairly certain it will be a middle of the road graphics card as the high-end graphics are the realm of Voodoo now.  The Intel processor will be Montevina, but again, HP hasn’t exactly said which processors from that family will be available — mostly because Intel hasn’t officially released Montevina yet due to a delay.

The Pavilion dv5t updates the the existing Pavilion dv6700t.  Nice to see that HP has gone back to using the number five to represent 15.4" screen.  The dv5t will be based on the new Intel Montevina platform, graphics available will be either Nvidia dedicated or Intel X5400 integrated graphics (part of the new platform).   Design wise the dv5t has been updatd with a new Imprint 2 onyx and chrome finish.  Blu-Ray is part of the mix too.

You get the pattern by now.  The 4 in the dv4t stands for 14.1" display and this new guy replaces the Pavilion dv2700t.  Interesting to see that HP didn’t cave into the popular 13.3" display size, and kind of a shame they didn’t actually.  Either way, this is the portable play in the new Pavilion lineup.  The Montevina platform is of course present and Blu-Ray is also an option even on this little guy.  The dv4t also has the HP Imprint 2 finish in onyx and chrome.

How about that model name for a mouthful?  Yes, the Compaq consumer line lives on in the form of a rather bland looking 15.4" screen AMD Athlon/Sempron based budget mainstream CQ50Z notebook.  The graphics come in the form of an Nvidia 8200M card.
