HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC

This is a review based on a personal experience with this Notebook. I’m drooling over it more now than I was in the past. A 20.1 inch notebook – Oh Wow…

There are two kinds of 20-inch notebooks: the kind that takes over whatever room it’s in and loses any portability whatsoever, and the kind that still resembles a notebook, just a bigger, better, brighter, more powerful one. The HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC is in the latter camp, offering performance, style, and plenty of screen real estate without overwhelming its users (view photo gallery).

At first glance, the HDX resembles the rest of HP’s consumer line, with a piano-black pinstriped finish on the outside and silver pinstripes on the inside with a splashier Imprint design, but the dual-hinge display, which allows for extra versatility with the 20.1-inch, 1680 x 1050-pixel high-def LCD, immediately tells you you’re not in Kansas anymore. Add a wide array of multimedia controls, a remote control with its own slot, a built-in webcam, and four Altec Lansing speakers, and you’ve got a multimedia force to be reckoned with. And at a relatively light 15.5 pounds (compared with Dell’s 18.3-pound XPS M2010), you can carry this notebook relatively easily from room to room, although a handle would have been nice.
