HP’s new Pavilion dv2 straddles the line between netbook and notebook.  It’s keyboard is 93% of the normal size, it weighs just under 4lbs and it’s measurements never break the foot mark at 11.5″ x 9.45″ x 0.93-1.29.  It’s size makes you think netbook, but it’s internals are a little different than your normal Atom powered netbook.   An Athlon Neo MV-40 @ 1.6GHz, 4GB DDR2-667, an HD3410 with 512MB dedicated memory and a 320Gb platter based HDD put it squarely in the notebook category.  Drop by the Tech Report to see if this is a mix of the best of two worlds, like a Peanut Butter Cup, or if it is more like a blend of Vegemite and lutefisk.

“HP aims to put netbooks on notice with a new Pavilion dv2 ultraportable whose svelte 12″ body is packed with a 1280×800 display, Athlon 64 CPU, discrete Radeon GPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive—all for $750. Let’s see how it measures up in the real world.”
