HP Pavilion HDX Updated With Blu-ray Disc Drive (video, specs)

HP HDXHP’s updated the HDX with improved specs and an optional Blu-ray disc drive. This updated 20.1-inch notebook starts at less than $1,999, but extras can push the price tag to more than $4,500. Check out the following video of the new HDX.

We first saw the HDX earlier this year. Relatively few people have purchased this 15.5-pound beast, as it is definitely geared towards enthusiasts.

HDX buyers can chose between a WSXGA (1680×1050 pixels) display or a WUXGA (1920 x 1200) display that offers a native 1080p viewing experience.

In addition to the Blu-ray ROM, The HP Pavilion HDX can also be configured with a standard-def DVD burner, HD DVD ROM (player only) or an HD DVD burner. The Blu-ray optical drive is a $200 option.

HP will offer the latest Intel Extreme mobile processors after they’re announced at CES 2008. Graphics are powered by a 256MB ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT GPU, or an optional 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS card, which offers about twice the performance.
