HP Compaq 515, 610 outed

HP has released a pair of business notebooks, with the 14.0-inch Compaq 515 and 15.6-inch Compaq 610. Either sports an LED-backlit display with 1366x768 resolution, and the 515's processing power coming from a choice of AMD Athlon X2 or Turion X2 processors paired with as much as 8GB of RAM. Graphics processing is handled by the integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 GPU. Otherwise, users can opt for a 250GB hard drive, and there is a standard-issue DVD burner and optional 2-megapixel webcam. Wi-Fi is integrated, and the systems start at 5lbs with a standard 6-cell battery.

Specs for the 15.6-inch Compaq 610 look mostly the same, albeit with some key differences. The CPU choices are confined to an Intel Core 2 Duo or Celeron dual-core processor, and Intel's GMA X3100 integrated GPU handles graphics processing. There is space for up to 4GB of RAM, the choice to upgrade from a 160GB hard drive to a 250GB HDD, and a DVD burner. Weight with the same 6-cell battery starts at 5.5lbs.

Operating system options include Windows Vista Business or Vista Home Basic, with the option to downgrade to Windows XP, depending on model. The Compaq 515 starts at $429, while the basic 610 costs $449. [via Laptoping]
