HP Pavilion HDX Review (Penryn and Nvidia Update)
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall the Penryn and Nvidia updates to the HP Pavilion HDX make this notebook an even better entertainment solution than it was last year. Given the impressive feature set and performance of this notebook it's amazing that the system is as thin and light as it is. Sure, you might develop a hernia while lifting this giant notebook onto your lap, but it's worth it. The "wow factor" of the 20.1" high-definition screen, Altec Lansing speakers and media center remote are enough to make the HDX the centerpiece of your entertainment system. Add the 64-bit version of Vista, a full 4GB of RAM and excellent Nvidia graphics and this system is a can't miss. Bottom line, if you can justify the price and the size, the HDX is still the best desktop replacement and home entertainment notebook on the market today.

Hewlett-Packard hasn't bothered to change the name of its 20-inch laptop with this new update, but a handful of new features and options make it worth a fresh look. Pushing the physical boundaries of the laptop form, the massive HP Pavilion HDX is still clearly more at home resting on a desk than sitting in your lap. The updated HP Pavilion HDX is still a glorious example of conspicuous consumption and adds a few improvements, notably the latest in laptop graphics and a screen that can display full 1080p.

The HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC is without a doubt a premium multimedia machine and is an excellent platform for showcasing Penryn’s power. Although we would have liked to see the inclusion of a three-year warranty, this top-of-the-line desktop replacement has enough oomph to satisfy all of your productivity and entertainment needs for years to come.

HP Pavilion HDX User Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
HP recently introduced their flagship laptop, the HP Pavilion HDX “Dragon”.  The laptop is within their consumer Pavilion line and carries over certain design cues recently seen in that line, such as the laser-etched laptop lid, touch buttons and dimpled touchpad.  The HDX uses a custom design scheme and I do not think it is possible to get the laptop in other colours or designs.  HP have been pretty active in their marketing for the HDX, which is suprising as this is a laptop that will appeal to a small niche market.  They have been advertising heavily in the London Underground and on TV.  I do like “The Computer Personal Again” slogans they have been using. Unlike the American market, HP do not allow you to customize the laptop here in the UK.  There are two pre-configured models, naturally one higher end and one lower end.  The higher end Screen: 13.3-inch screen WXGA (1280 x 800) with XBRITE-ECO (glossy finish).

Source: vnunet.com English
The HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Series notebook – to give it its full name – is the sort of computer that's designed to appeal very much to home users, as an all-round entertainer. It's nicknamed the Dragon, and at first glance it is easy to see why: it’s monstrous. The main reason it's so large is the monitor, a 20.1in widescreen model. The bulk of the device means it's not the type of notebook that can be carried anywhere further than from a bedroom to a living room, say. This makes it more of a replacement for a desktop computer than a travellers' notebook. The screen is very clear and sharp, and it sits above a well spread keyboard area, giving plenty of room for manoeuvre. This not only includes standard keys and a numeric keypad but also a removable remote control that can be used to control the media functions of the notebook.

The HP Pavilion HDX is a monstrous computer. It's freakishly big - the Robert Barone of notebooks - when compared to other portable computers. Thankfully, its huge size is equaled by its stunning looks and beautiful, logical and remarkably intuitive design. At the time of this writing, the HDX uses an Intel Core 2 Duo processor - the T7700 - running at 2.4GHz (like the 15" MacBook Pro). There's a healthy 4MB L2 cache backing up the processor. The HDX also has an 800MHz bus and supports up to 4GB of DDR2 RAM. Our test model had a 2GB complement of memory. The HDX uses the ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card with 256MB dedicated DDR2 memory, and is able to utilize upwards of 2GB dedicated & shared video memory. It's hard to imagine using 2GB of video memory, but the HDX will gladly oblige.

HP Pavilion HDX Dragon
Source: Laptop Logic English
The 20.1” HP HDX is something out of a hi-tech thriller.  If anyone’s ever read Digital Fortress by Dan Brown (of The DaVinci Code fame), this is the supercomputer they must’ve used to crack the codes.  From the “Dragon” namesake decal on the lid to the extended keyboard below, everything about this notebook screams “greater purpose.”  With a price tag approaching five large, it better live up to its looks.  We’ll find out. If you're one of the few seriously considering buying this notebook, then price isn't a deterrent.  It boasts some of the most powerful specs on the market today, and does it in a package that's both pleasing to look at as well as to touch.  It is mobile, in a manner of speaking, which puts it one step ahead of a desktop.  The video and audio come together in a way that makes you understand why this notebook is so damn heavy and expensive.

Pushing the physical boundaries of the laptop form, the massive HP Pavilion HDX is clearly more at home resting on a desk than sitting in your lap. Weighing an amazing 15.5 pounds and boasting a desktop-size 20-inch LCD, the HDX starts at $2,999--but our test unit was configured closer to $4,700, with high-end extras such as an HD DVD drive and Intel's flagship Core 2 Extreme mobile processor. While it makes an excellent all-in-one entertainment system for the den, dorm room, or CEO's office, the screen doesn't display full 1080p resolution (which you'll want for HD DVDs) and the expensive Intel Core 2 Extreme X7800 CPU--while impressive--isn't worth the $725 upgrade. A more realistic configuration can make the HDX a worthwhile option if you want to combine home theater, gaming, and computing into one big yet somewhat portable package. You'll still need at least $3,000 to sit at the HDX's table, however, making it more of an intriguing tech showcase than something we expect to pass spousal purchase approval.

HP Pavilion HDX Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The eagerly awaited HP Pavilion HDX (code named "The Dragon") is a 20.1" widescreen entertainment notebook that uses the Intel Santa Rosa platform. Equipped with an available dedicated ATI HD2600 XT graphics card, HD DVD optical drive, integrated HDTV tuner, and integrated web-camera, this massive beast redefines the term "notebook." The following is a quick first take on a pre-production HP Pavilion HDX.
The HDX shares several design elements with the rest of the HP Pavilion line, but more than size and weight separate the HDX from its siblings. First, HP has improved their glossy black and silver "Imprint" finish with a new high-impact version called "Dragon." While we didn't test the high-impact finish by dropping it repeatedly in our office, I can say the finish looks quite durable ... though fingerprints show up quickly on the glossy finish. Overall our first impressions of the overwhelmingly huge HP Pavilion HDX are overwhelmingly positive.

Gamers have a new best friend in the HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Series Notebook PC - available in the UK from September 07. Superfast, with great sound and a huge 20.1in screen, the HP Pavilion HDX is a good, fairly portable entertainment system. Digital editors, artists, and multimedia enthusiasts will like this all-in-one, too. Just be ready to dig deep for it: HP's 'approximate street price' for the HP Pavilion HDX is £1,400. The HP Pavilion HDX we looked at came maxed out with the 64bit version of Windows Vista Ultimate. It had Intel's best mobile chip, the 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo T7700, and 4GB of RAM. All that horsepower helped the HP Pavilion HDX earn a WorldBench 6 Beta 2 score of 86 and generate a frame rate of 109 in our Far Cry gaming tests. The HP Pavilion HDX's two-hour, 22-minute battery life is quite poor for an ordinary notebook but remarkably good for a huge (7kg) desktop-replacement model. The HP Pavilion HDX is impressively crafted.

The HP HDX18 Premium Notebook PC is designed to give its owner ‘premium entertainment and performance'. At a cost of US $ it certainly commands a premium price but is it any good? A heavy-duty desktop replacement that does most things right. A high-end GPU and a slightly more responsive trackpad would make it a perfect desktop replacement machine.

With a fast processor, Blu-ray drive and 18-inch 1080p screen, the HP HDX X18's spec sheet reads like a wishlist of the components you'd want in any entertainment laptop. But the configuration reviewed here, the HDX X18-1005EA, priced at around £1,200, isn't exactly wallet-friendly. Is it worth the considerably outlay? The HP HDX X18's design won't appeal to everyone, and the asking price is steep, but there's no denying that the X18 is hugely powerful and offers pretty much everything you could want from an entertainment laptop.

As far as mid- to high-end entertainment computers go, the HDX18 (and by extension the smaller HDX16) is worth keeping an eye on. The use of a 16:9 display along with included Blu-ray makes it a great system for watching television and movies. Throw in a remote controller, better-than-expected sound, and a setup powerful enough to playback 1080p video and you have yourself a very nice media machine. On-board Firewire, eSATA, and a TV tuner all help complete the experience. The touch-sensitive area isn’t perfect, the system is overly glossy, and it has too many LED lights running, but overall the HP HDX18 is one of the better entertainment notebooks available today.

Earlier this year we looked at the HP HDX16-1005ea and went away very impressed. It was the first 16:9 aspect ratio notebook we'd seen from HP, but the company was able to distil all the things we expect in a multimedia notebook into one cohesive, classy and reasonably priced machine. Now we're looking at the HDX16's larger sibling, the HDX18 - an 18.4in machine with an identical focus on multimedia, albeit in a much larger frame. If you're after a desktop replacement with all the trimmings but don't want to pay the earth, the HP HDX18-1005ea should definitely be on your list. It has all the features a multimedia machine should have, looks the part and makes for an excellent day-to-day family PC.

HP's HDX lineup of computers are designed for entertainment uses and the HDX18-1020us is a very strong example of how a laptop can be a portable media platform. While it may not one of the fastest laptops on the market, it is very well desinged for high definition video playback thanks to the Blu-ray drive, high resolution LCD panel and dedicated graphics. The inclusion of a new class of 500GB hard drives also provides it with lots of space for media files. Of course, consumers will need to be willing to carry around a larger laptop due to its screen size.

A terrific mediacentric desktop-replacement laptop, our only quibbles with the HP HDX18 revolve around its shiny screen, battery life and less than perfect audio. But these are minor issues, and the HP HDX18 is a hit where it counts - although at £1,199 inc VAT, it will hit you in the wallet, too.

What kind of price can you put on this kind of entertainment PC? Quite a bit, actually. Our machine, as configured, will run you upwards of $2300. If that's a little too rich for your blood, scale back features, and you can get a baseline model for about $1400. Or you can hang in and wait to learn more about what's happening with Toshiba and Alienware's latest media machines (hint: expect some cool stuff happening for the holiday timeframe).

HP’s newest HDX is all about design, with ease of use as a close second. While the original dual-hinged Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC was by all accounts innovative, it wasn’t exactly mobile, and its audience was limited to those who lusted after bragging rights more than true portability and functionality. HP's HDX18 packs all the functionality of its 20.1-inch predecessor into a more mobile platform.

HP HDX 18t Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall, the HP HDX 18t delivers solid overall performance and a great set of features for a reasonable value. If you're in the market for a desktop replacement notebook with a massive screen, powerful processor, and solid graphics hardware for 1080p video playback and gaming then the HDX 18 makes a compelling choice. That said, the highly "reflective" nature of the HDX 18 will probably be frustrating for quite a few users unless they're working in a dark environment. Likewise, hardcore gamers are likely to find the Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT video card a little too limiting for the newest and most popular video games. In any case, the HP HDX 18 still offers a great overall package, including some really impressive built-in speakers, that will meet or exceed the expectations of most consumers.

For several months after they became a buzzed-about topic, the only 18-inch laptop we had actually seen in person was Acer's inventive Aspire 8920. Now we're seeing a mini-flood of them, with new models arriving from HP, Sony, and Toshiba. HP already makes some of the best multimedia laptops, and trading up to a true 16:9 18-inch display makes for an impressive semiportable home theater in the form of the HP HDX18.

If you can live with its minor flaws, the HDX 18 is the better value.

A 20-inch laptop might sound like the ultimate media hub, and for a while, the HP Pavilion HDX-9000 (Dragon) received numerous accolades for being most extraordinary, biggest in the world, and straight out of "Ripley's Believe or Not." Unfortunately, it was too big and costly to really take off.

All in all, though, there’s a lot to like about these multimedia notebooks. While our living rooms were less crowded when we shipped them back to their makers, we do confess to being somewhat sorry to see them go.

Attack of the Mammoths: 18.4-inch DTR Shootout!
Source: Hardware Zone English

Having had our fun with all four units, we're hard pressed to actually come up with a clear winner. It's obvious that all four units have a different take on what an 18.4-inch desktop replacement should be and have their own strengths, but it's also obvious they all agree that size is key here. The Acer Aspire Gemstone Blue 8930G here comes out tops in our books for its value and performance, but we didn't quite like its fingerprint magnet surface and glossy screen. The HP HDX18t Premium comes across as classy as all HP units have evolved to be, though the slightly lower specs reflect in our performance benchmarks.

Source: Notebookreview.com English
With dozens of computer manufacturers offering dozens of different laptop models, in every size, speed, and price point imaginable, true standout models are hard to find. Downright sexy laptops are even harder to come by. I can truthfully say, however, that the HP HDX 18 is one such machine—and at a very attractive price to boot. It gives you everything you’d ever want from a desktop computer—great performance for games and applications alike, plenty of Windows desktop space, good sound, and enough input and output ports for true versatility—yet gives you the convenience and portability of a laptop at the same time. If you aren’t put off by the HDX 18’s considerable size—which in this writer’s opinion enhances the user experience rather than detracting from it—then this laptop may be for you. And all for around $2,200.

83% HP Pavilion HDX9313TX

This giant also offers surprisingly good battery life. The HDX9313TX lasted just over three hours in our light-use test, and 1hr 43mins under heavy use. It’s hard to find fault with the HP. There’s more than enough performance for demanding apps, a superb 20.1in screen, Blu-ray support and a fantastic range of media-friendly features – a worthy winner, despite its size.

HP reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT: The 2600 XT is a higher clocked HD 2600/2700 with Avivo HD video functions. The performance lies a bit over the 9500M GS middle class graphics card. Modern DirectX 10 games are playable but not with highest details.

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT: Successor of the 8600M GT and because of the smaller 65nm production process the card is higher clocked (and therefore faster) with the same current consumption.Furthermore, it features an improved video processor (VP3) and HybridPower to save current (in conjunction with the 9100M G).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS:

The Nvidia GeForce 8800M GTS is based upon the Desktop G92 chip and offers better performance than the GeForce 8700M GT due to a 256 bit memory bus and larger number of Shader cores.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7700: Fastest Merom based Core 2 Duo with 35 Watt. The later Penryn Core 2 Duo are a bit faster at the same clock speed.

P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

T9500: Upper middle class laptop CPU for Santa Rosa based laptops (FSB 800). The T9550 offers only a slightly higher core clock, but features a 1066 FSB.

Intel Core 2 Extreme: The fastest Core 2 Duo variants of Intel are called Core 2 Extreme. Technically, these processors are based on a Merom/Penryn (X9000) core like all other Core 2 Duo  processors,  too.

X9000: Fastest and most expensive mobile Core 2 CPU at the time of announcement with a higher power consumption of 44 W and 2.8 GHz core clock. Later the X9100 substituted the X9000 as fastest dual core.


18.0: 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

18.4: 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

20.1: This format for notebook displays exists since 2006 for giant desktop replacement laptops and yet is rarely used. There does not exist any bigger screen for laptops. Critics request or deny, that these devices can be called notebook, laptop or mobile computer. The DTR-Laptops can't be carried easily, need much current, but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

4.1 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.

8.2 kg:

This laptop is extremely heavy. Even babys can be carried easier. Only few desktop replacements with 20 inch display fit in this class of weight.


82.19%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
