HP's Pavilion dv2 12.1-inch ultraportable notebook has finally launched, almost three months after its CES launch.  Dropping the internal optical drive in favor of arguably more useful components, the Pavilion dv2 packs a 320GB 5,400rpm hard-drive, 4GB of DDR2 RAM and WiFi a/b/g/n, along with its 1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 processor.

There's also a keyboard that's 92-percent of full-size, HDMI port and integrated webcam.  Graphics are taken care of via a discrete ATI Mobility Radeon HD3410 chip, and there's an external DVD burner for those rare occasions you want to toast a disc. 

Aside from HDMI, ports include USB 2.0, VGA and ethernet, and the whole thing weighs 3.5lb and is less than 1-inch thick.  The screen runs at 1280 x 800 and the standard battery is a 6-cell pack the capacity and runtime of which HP are keeping quiet on.

The HP Pavilion dv2-1030 is available now, priced from $749.99.
