HP intros budget business notebooks with 3G

HP 6515b and 6715b

HP today quietly released a pair of notebooks under its Compaq label that cater to workers and other no-frills computer users. The 14-inch 6515b and 15.4-inch 6715b together go without webcams or other media-centric features but compensate with strong wireless choices: either can be loaded with 802.11n wireless for faster networks or an internal EVDO or HSDPA adapter for 3G wireless from cellular carriers. The entire range relies on AMD's single- or dual-core mobile processors.

Either system starts at $649 with a 1.8GHz Sempron CPU, 512MB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, and a DVD/CD-RW Combo drive; pre-built systems can be ordered with a 2GHz dual-core Turion 64 X2, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB disk and a DVD rewriter with LightScribe support. [via LAPTOP Magazine]
