Notebook concept as reliable multimedia device is not a something new, but what done by HP with Pavilion HDX can be said unique and revolutionary. Not Only its 20,1 inches screen size, but also because it fascinating design of two unique axis. First axis functions to open notebook cover, while the second axis to setting screen declivity. This is non something new, because we have seen the same thing in Dialogue Flybook VM. But Flybook VM only have 12,1 inches screen size, thus HP success do the same thing in 20,1 inches screen must be appreciated.
Moreover, Pavilion HDX also extravagances the user with lot of facility which you hard to find in other notebook. Its optical device already uses HD DVD-ROM, so you can enjoys high definition video directly in this notebook. But need to be noted that the optical device only reads HD-DVD disc, not like HD-DVD Writer applied by Toshiba Qosmio G40.
To support high definition multimedia, Pavilion HDX equipped with speaker from Altec Lansing. Not half the battle, there is four speaker plus subwoofer with Triple Bass Reflex technology to produced home theater sound quality. In left side of keyboard is available a remote controller so that you can enjoys high class entertainment from your balmy sofa.
Pavilion HDX surprises are not only in multimedia side, but also at its base function as a notebook. One of its proofs can be seen by the existence of SATA external port which residing in notebook left side. This port functioned for high-speed data traffic, much higher compared to USB 2.0 or FireWire. Pavilion HDX applied high class component, starts from Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 (2,2 GHZ) processor, 2 GB DDR2 memory, and Ati Mobility 2600XT (256 MB) graphic card. Which more special is it two harddisk (@ 160GB) and combined becomes RAID 0 (striping) to increase the speed.
But something else which we get from our test are even it have large size battery, this notebook have a short life time. Though having 7200mAh capacities, the battery only hold out for more or less one hour to play HD video which we applies as test tool. Moreover, its weight reaching 6,9 kgs, this notebook of course not for be brought to travels.
Upper review actually has not explains clearly all Pavilion HDX facilities, because there are still have fingerprint scanner, HDMI, and also touch button which we have not referred.
