HP Pavilion DM1 CULV ultraportable gets official

HP's leaked consumer device catalog at the end of September warned us that the company had a new, 11.6-inch CULV notebook in the works, and sure enough HP Japan have just announced the new machine.  The HP Pavilion DM1 gets a dual-core 1.2GHz Intel Celeron SU2300 processor along with 2GB of RAM (5GB supported), a 250GB 5,400rpm hard-drive and Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics chipset.

That's sufficient to drive the 11.6-inch glossy display at 1,366 x 768, though it's a far cry from NVIDIA's Ion GPU.  Connectivity includes WiFi b/g, HDMI, VGA, ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports and a 5-in-1 memory card reader, along with a headphones socket.  HP have also squeezed in some Altec Lansing speakers, together with a webcam.

The 6-cell 55Wh battery is apparently good for up to 8hrs runtime, and the whole thing weighs 1.5kg.  It'll be priced at around 70,000 yen ($686) when it drops in mid-November with Windows 7, and pretty much go head to head with Acer's new Aspire Timeline AS1810TZ.
