HP has introduced a major overhaul of their notebook lineup, including a couple of new ultraportable notebooks. The first is the HP Compaq nc2400. The weight starts at 2.8 pounds (no word on if this is with or without the internal optical drive) and is just under an inch thick (0.976 inches to be precise). It may not have a PCMCIA/PC Card slot (or ExpressCard 34/54). This model doesn’t appear to be replacing any other model in their existing lineup, unlike some of the other HP Compaq notebooks introduced today.
Calling it the their “thinnest and lightest notebook with optical drive to date”, it features:
* Uses an Intel Core Solo U1400 Low Voltage CPU (1.2GHz)
* 533MHz Front-Side Bus
* IntelÂ® PRO Wireless 3945ABG 802.11a/b/g, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet
* 12.1-inch widescreen display
It starts at around $1600 and looks to be available next week. The base model has 512MB of memory, a 40GB harddrive, and a DVD/CD-RW optical drive.
