Unboxing HP's Pavilion dv2

One of only a handful of specific upcoming laptop models that readers have regularly asked about, HP's 12-inch Pavilion dv2 has finally arrived.

Back at CES 2009, we noted that, "at first glance, another glossy HP laptop with an AMD processor may induce yawns, but when we learned this was the first system to use AMD's new Netbook-like Athlon Neo platform, our ears perked up."

The Neo is intended to be a kind of step-up from Netbook CPUs such as the Intel Atom and Via Nano, offering a little more processing power for a little more money, and is targeted at slightly larger systems -- 12-inche laptops instead of 9 and 10-inch ones.

More on the HP Pavilion dv2 here.
