HP DV9890 Laptop

Now as you may know I am a huge fan of Hewlett Packard gear and have a HP laptop myself so I love it when we get our hands on a new one and this DV9890 is a real corker!  The HP-DV9890 laptop is stunningly beautiful and is equipped with 17 inch bright view wide screen monitor running on windows vista premium media edition, built in web cam and Harman Kardon speakers that pump out crisp and clear sounds.  The dv 9890 is also equipped with a remote control and quick launch buttons along the bottom of the screen.

Although this laptop looks amazing aesthetics are not the best thing about it as the spec is truly breath taking.  Let’s start with the processor which is blisteringly quick, HP have installed the new T9300 2.5 Ghz beast that has a 800 MHz front side bus with a 6 mb cache.  This processor is ready for any task you can throw at it and gets full marks from us.

 HP have also installed an amazing 4gb of ram which is every gamers dream when combined with the Gforce 8600m dedicated graphics card with built in TV tuner.  The dv9890 has a massive 500 gb hard drive split over two drives which is plenty for a media PC, should you every feel the need to backup your data it will be easy as it is equipped with a blu-ray hd DVD drive.  Other standard features include wireless and blue-tooth to round off this amazing package.

This is a great laptop and it is one that will never hold you back as it is cutting edge and packed to the max with features and technolgy. If you are tech mad then buy this laptop today.

    Does anyone know how I can buy one of these? HP say that it’s only available from PC World, Dixons or Curry’s but none of their websites feature it!
