With notebooks based on Intel's new Santa Rosa platform out and about, AMD isn't getting a whole lot of attention in the mobile market. However, as NotebookReview reports, HP has unveiled a trio of new notebooks based on the green team's processors. The first two systems are part of HP's Pavilion lineup and carry dv9500z and dv6500z model numbers, while the third is in the Compaq Presario line and is dubbed v6500z.
The Pavilion dv9500z starts at $999.99 and sports a 17" display, Turion 64 X2 processors clocked between 1.9GHz and 2.3GHz, and either Nvidia GeForce Go 7150M integrated graphics or a separate GeForce 8400M GS graphics module. Down the line, the Pavilion dv6500z starts at a more affordable $749.99 and offers a smaller 15.4" display, Turion 64 X2 chips clocked between 1.8GHz and 2.2GHz, and the same choice of graphics options as the dv9500z.
Last, but not least, the Compaq Presario v6500z starts at just $499, has a 15.4" display, comes with either a 2GHz Sempron 3600+ or 1.8GHz to 2.1GHz Turion 64 X2s, and is limited to GeForce Go 7150M integrated graphics. All three models are available for purchase today, and HP says they'll ship in the middle of next month.
