When you’ve got a 20.1-inch widescreen like the Dragon by HP, it’s not exactly appropriate to still call it a notebook computer. Sure, it’s still somewhat portable with its conventional clamshell design, but this is going to be one big and heavy (7kg) behemoth to lug around between classes. HP has yet to give the machine a proper model number and name, so the HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC is temporarily being nicknamed as the Dragon.
Naturally, the HP Dragon is probably better understood as a desktop replacement notebook, being a computer that you can set up shop with in a variety of locations. I’d imagine that with a 20.1-inch screen, the battery life probably isn’t all that great either. Then again, you’ve got twenty bloody inches of high resolution goodness to return that smile to your face.
The HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC comes equipped with a Intel Core 2 Duo processor, ATI Radeon X2600 XT graphics (512MB), dual hard drive bays, and up to 4GB of RAM. Don’t expect the Dragon to come cheap either.
