A pretty legitimate-looking rough-draft of HP's Winter 2009/2010 catalogue has leaked out, and seems to confirm a bunch of new Windows 7 laptops that aren't yet official. One surprise, though: the Pavilion dv3 with multi-finger TouchSmart screen.
HP's DM3 swings both ways—AMD and Intel—with each chip titan's take on low voltage processors. What's common is that both versions start at $US550, are just over an inch thick and come with 4GB RAM and Windows 7 64-bit.
Look familiar? The HP ProBook looks like their really nice Mini 5101 netbook, but it's actually packing a full-blown Core 2 Duo, which HP says makes it the "world's thinnest full performance notebook."
Specs of several upcoming HP notebooks have been dug up by Web-sleuths, including info on a Mini 311 netbook. It looks like it may also have an Atom N270 processor, 1GB memory, 160GB hard disk, and a six-cell battery.
