7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

HP has revealed a host of Intel Ivy Bridge notebooks with a potential release mooted for next month.

While still unsure of exact dates for when Intel plans to formally roll out its newest processor, three of the four HP laptops just announced are set to hit shelves with it.

HP Pavilion Ivy Bridge

These are the HP Pavilion dv4-5000, dv6-7000 and dv7-7000, while a fourth batch - the g-series - will launch with a choice of Sandy Bridge processors instead.

The 14in dv4 and 15.6in dv6 feature a screen res of 1366 x 768 and boast 2.3GHz Core i7-3610QM CPUs with Nvidia GeForce GT 630M graphics and Beats audio. There's up to 8GB of memory and up to 2TB and 4TB of storage, respectively.

The 17.3in dv7 takes things up a notch to a resolution of 1920 x 1080, with a 2.6GHz Core i7-3720QM processor and a GeForce GT 650M GPU. Again there's up to 8GB of memory and 2TB of storage.

Meanwhile, the Sandy Bridge g-series arrives with the choice of several processors such as the Core i3-2350M and Core i5-2450M. These come with a 14in, 1366 x 768 display apiece and up to 8GB of memory.

Exact availability and pricing has yet to be officially revealed, although a press release that leaked last week shows them all hit stores at the end of April. It also says the dv6 and dv7 will start at £599, while prices for the g-series begin at £399.
