HP's entry into the new Best Buy Blue Label lineup is a fixed configuration within the recently announced 13.3-inch Pavilion dv3500 series.

The $1,199 HP Pavilion dv3510nr will incorporate an Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 processor; 4GB of RAM (and 64-bit Windows Vista to take advantage of it); 512MB Nvidia GeForce 9300M GS graphics; and a 320GB, 5,400rpm hard drive. As with other Pavilion dv3500s, the dv3510nr includes a backlit keyboard, DVD burner, Draft-N wireless, and Bluetooth, as well as an HDMI port and an eSATA connection.

The Pavilion dv3510nr's price tag includes several nice touches that are key requirements of the Blue Label designation: the laptop is backed by a two-year warranty that includes toll-free phone support and a full year of antivirus protection; its 4-pound chassis measures just 1.2 inches thick; and the included six-cell battery can, according to the manufacturer, last up to 4 hours, 15 minutes.

You can preorder the Pavilion dv3510nr on Best Buy's site; the laptop should also be available in stores this month.
