HP has introduced a gigantic notebook PC, the Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC. You can find out the entire specification here, but I will focus on the LCD on this post. Unlike Dell’s monster 20″, the XPS M2010, which is limited to a pixel format of just 1680 x 1050, the Pavilion HDX has an option to get a 20.1″ with 1920 x 1200. Now this is much better since you can get 17″ notebook PCs with 1920 x 1200, but that can generate smallish fonts (with default DPI settings on XP and Vista). I wouldn’t lug this around, but I would definitely consider the HDX as a real desktop replacement capable notebook PC. With 4GB of DDR2 RAM, a 120GB 7200RPM SATA dual hard drives, a nVidia GeForce 8800M GTS with 512MB topped off with Intel’s Core 2 Extreme CPU blazing at 2.8GHz, this machine will more than meet most user’s demand for performance. Good move on HP’s part for offering a 1920 x 1200 option on a 20.1″ display, which should be more than usable.
