HP refreshes notebooks

Though only in time for post-Christmas shoppers, HP has decided to refresh several computers in its notebook line: these include the dv2700t, bw and se 14.1-inch models, the 15.4-inch dv6700z, t and se, and finally the dv9700t and z. All the machines continue to have dual-core Intel processors and a maximum 4GB of RAM, but people can now choose to upgrade with extra graphics and optical drive options. The latter comes in the form of a Blu-Ray drive; while read-only with HD discs, it can also burn DVD-R and RW discs.

Graphics options are dependent on the notebook range. The 14.1-inch units can fit a 128MB GeForce 8400M GS, while the 15.4-inch ones get a 256MB version of the same card. The best performance is available in the 17-inch systems, which have the choice of a 512MB 8600M GS. Prices for the notebooks vary from $800 for a basic dv2700t to over $3,700 for a fully-loaded dv9700t. [via NotebookReview]
