While the official unveiling of Intel’s Sandy Bridge at CES is coming up, Intel is already sending out the chips to manufacturers for a quick turn around after the announcement. However, it looks like HP is ready to start selling some laptops with the new hardware under the hood. As seen in an electronics store in Singapore, VR-Zone managed to steal some time away and get their hands on the new laptop, which features the same aesthetics as the previous iterations in the Pavilion dv6 line-up. But there’s one main difference: Intel’s Sandy Bridge inside.
As VR-Zone points out, there’s no way to differentiate between this new dv6 and previous models. It looks exactly the same on the outside, save for one thing: the Intel sticker right below the keyboard is different. The new logo is Intel’s new design. As far as details ago regarding the Pavilion dv6 in question, it features a 15.6-inch LED-backlit display. Under the hood, there’s 2GHz Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU that features Turbo Boost technology, which can reach speeds of 2.8GHz.
They were also able to find out that there’s AMD’s Radeon HD 6570M graphics card. As far as pricing goes, because the laptop was indeed on sale in this electronics store, it was listed as being $1,900 Singapore dollars, or about $1,399.
