Intel’s Sandy Bridge platform got off to a rough start with a recall shortly after it launched, which then sent ripples through top-tier manufacturers who then had to delay or recall their wares. But everything is worked out now and the sun is beating down on the sandy bridges as HP starts shipping its first round of next-gen Intel notebooks.
LogicBuy points out that the HP Pavilion dv6 Quad Edition, dv7 Quad Edition and HP ENVY 17 are all now shipping with the latest Intel chipset. All rock the Core i7-2630QM 2GHz Quad-core CPU that features TurboBoost capabilities. AMD Radeon GPU chipsets are tapped with graphics duty while tiny Dr. Dres pump out the audio while simultaneously killing his good name. Prices start out at $825 for the dv6 when purchased through LogicBuy and climb to $1299 for the Envy 17. Spec the big Envy 17 out with 3D active-shutter glasses and a 1080p 3D display and that price hits $1550.
