HP Pavilion HDX "The Dragon" entertainment laptop announced

Looks like HP's HDX has finally poked its pivoting, angling neck out to say hello. We welcome the mammoth, overzealous "entertainment series" laptop, in all its specced out glory. Marvel at its:

  • Centrino (Core 2) Duo T7700 2.4GHz CPU

  • 20.1-inch 1680 x 1050 "Ultra Brightview" display

  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT 256MB graphics (DirectX 10)

  • 4GB RAM

  • Dual 200GB SATA drives, eSATA port

  • Integrated ATSC / NTSC tuner with IR blaster

  • 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth

  • HD DVD (read-only), dual layer DVD±RW drive

  • ExpressCard slot, HDMI out

Did we mention it's 15.5 pounds, 2.3-inches thick, and will bankrupt your family? Seriously, consider this one long and hard. Your kids' college education is more important than a laptop.
