The atypically well-specced 12.1-inch Pavilion dv2 has been spotted over in Thailand for around $720, and while i...

We just got a precious few minutes alone in a dark corner (or a huge, overlit booth) with HP's 12.1-inch dv2 and the 13.3-inch dv3. They're both slick little smudge-loving machines with handsome design sense and super glossy finishes. In case you've forgotten, the dv2 is the first netbook to have A...

Here we've got the fruits of AMD's new Neo platform: the Pavilion dv2 series of entertainment laptops.
