The HP Pavilion DM1 may not be available in the US yet… but it’s getting a little closer. A few weeks ago it showed up on HP’s Japanese web site. And now the 11.6 inch laptop is available in Germany for 499 Euros. We’re just an ocean or two away from seeing it in North America.
The laptop features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and looks an awful lot like the HP Mini 311 on the outside. But on the inside, HP has replaced the Intel Atom processor and NVIDIA ION graphics with a 1.2GHz Intel Celeron SU2300 dual core processor and Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics. The HP Pavilion DM1 also has 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive and runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
The notebook packs 802.11b/g WiFi, a 5-in-1 card reader, Ethernet, and a 6 cell battery. It weighs 3.2 pounds and measures 11.4″ x 8″ x 1.2″.
