It's been a few months since it was first announced, but those itching to get their hands on HP's mammoth Pavilion HDX laptop need wait no longer, as the entertainment-focused monstrosity is now finally available to order. In case you missed it, this back-breaking system boasts a 20.1-inch display along with what HP seems keen to call "15.5 lb. of portable performance." That includes your choice of Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Extreme processors, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics, up to 4GB of RAM, and a range of hard drive and optical drive options, among other premium features. Just be sure you know what you're getting into, as the cost of entry for this one is a hefty $2,750.

Update: HP doesn't seem to be be playing it up much, but it turns out the HDX comes with SlingPlayer pre-installed, making it the first model to do so. What's more, HP's also worked a SlingPlayer client into their QuickPlay multimedia app, which'll let you access it without booting into the OS. Click on through for a couple of pics.
