We just got word that HP’s new Pavilion DM1 is now available in Canada, exclusively through the big box retailer Best Buy.
HP’s notebook sports an AMD Vision E350 dual-core 1.6 GHz processor, 11.6” high-definition diagonal BrightView LED display with a screen size of 1366 x 768. It’s also powered by AMD Fusion technology, a fancy name for its accelerated processing unit that aims to improve data transfer rates while reducing the battery consumption.
In addition to having over 9.5 hours of battery life (6-cell Lithium-ion battery) , the exterior is sleek, 1” thick, and weighs in at 3.5 pounds . This notebook ships with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit) pre-installed, 4GB of RAM, a 640 GB hard drive and HDMI ports for extending media to a larger screen. It has no optical drive or multi-channel digital audio output, but it does have a memory card reader (SD; MMC) and a built-in webcam. This notebook retails for $600 (Canadian) at Best Buy.
AMD’s Leslie Soban and HP’s VP & Chief Technology Officer Phil McKinney, discuss the HP Pavilion DM1(z-series) in the video below. We should note that BestBuy is calling its new HP Pavilion notebook the e-series although, aside from more RAM and hard drive space, it’s pretty much has the same.
