Another month, another wave of new notebooks from HP. Today, the PC powerhouse has expanded their consumer and business lines with 11 new models, all of which utilize AMD's new VISION technology. That's an affordable line with plenty of punch for most people -- the A-series APU is a step above Fusion, and it's being used more and more frequently in smaller, lighter full-size notebooks.

The HP Pavilion dv-series is seeing an across-the-board update, with the dv4, dv6 and dv7 getting CoolSense, True Vision HD webcam, and HP Beats Audio (on the dv6 and dv7 only). HP tells us that the DV-series offers a 2x graphics performance increase compared with prior-generation machines with integrated graphics, so if you held off, well, you made the right move!

The Pavilion g-series (g4, g6 and g7) is seeing gentle spec bumps for the productivity crowd, while the ProBook b-series (6465b and 6565b) gets a durable brushed-aluminum finish, a bead-blasted aluminum display enclosure and wear-resistant DuraFinish paint.

Moving right along, the ProBook s-series (4535s, 4435s and 4436s adds a brushed aluminum finish, as well as a gesture-enabled touchpad and integrated HD webcam.

The dv6 starts at $599.99, the dv7 at $699.99, the g4 at $449.99, g6 at $498, g7 at $499, and the ProBook like at $519. The whole lot will start to become available in late June, and continue through the summer.

Hmm... Good for AMD most definitely since HP has about 22% of the laptop market share. Though I used to recommend HP's I no longer do because of their high rate of repair. I now typically recommend Asus machines to my family and friends.

Wow, im surprised how quickly companies have jumped on Llano. Not to say that it isnt a good chip, it certainly is, but its largely unproven and its CPU side is a bit lacking. Either way, 11 wins with HP? Good job AMD, i just hope interest in fusion doesnt wane too quickly.
