Having launched their DV2 notebook, HP hasn’t decided to stop there. Today sees the announcement of the HP Pavillion DV3 entertainment laptop complete with 13.3-inch LED widescreen, 512MB NVIDIA GeForce G105M GPU and DVD RW/Blu-ray drive. A good start if you’re serious about film watching and gaming to the degree of £699.

It’s out from next month month in two colours dubbed Espresso and Moonlight because of the swirly coloured imprints you’ll be able to make out on the cases just over the jump. Got to admit they look quite nice and I won’t break their hearts by referring to them as black and white. Whoops.

You get a built-in 34mm remote control so you can set up and sit back, a 5-in-1 card reader for full compatibility and dual headphone jacks so that you and the Mrs/Mr don’t have to wake the baby.

It’s all served up with Windows Vista and the HP media software package and looks really quite reasonable for the cash. Naturally, the memory and processors will be negotiable on price.
