Massive Core i7 HP Pavilion Dv8 Ready To Fill Shelves

It wasn't a surprise exactly, but HP has officially unveiled the 18.4-inch, Core i7-powered Pavilion dv8 with full 1080p resolution, 4GB-8GB of RAM, dual 320GB HDDs, NVIDIA GeForce GT230 graphics, a TV tuner, Blu-ray and a long Life battery.

By "long life", HP is referring to their green battery that can supposedly sustain over 1000 recharges and maintain "like-new" performance for three years. Pricing and availability has not been determined outside of the UK, where the dv8 is set to crush shelves on Windows 7 launch day (October 22nd) starting at around $US2000. [HP via Shiny Shiny]
