HP's Phenom 9500-powered Pavilion Media Center m8330f PC

Remember those tasty Phenom chips AMD loosed back on November? We sure hope so, because that's the CPU HP's relying on in its forthcoming Pavilion Media Center m8330f PC. Here's the specifics:

  • 2.2GHz AMD Phenom 9500 quad-core CPU

  • NVIDIA's nForce 430 chipset

  • 3GB of DDR2 RAM

  • Twin 320GB 7,200 RPM SATA hard drives

  • HP's Personal Media Drive Bay

  • LightScribe-enabled SuperMulti DVD burner

  • NTSC / ATSC / FM tuners

  • HP Media Center remote control with IR receiver

  • Front-mounted 15-in-1 multicard reader

Beyond that, you can expect six USB 2.0 ports, a pair of FireWire connectors, audio in / out, HDMI and DVI sockets and an HP mouse / keyboard combo. Like the s3330f PC already mentioned, this too will be landing real soon with a price tag starting at $959.
