HP fans will be happy to know that HP’s Pavilion G6 and G7 series notebooks will be available with the 3rd generation quad-core Intel “Ivy Bridge” processors.
The 15.6? g6 and 17.3? g7 are budget systems that pack in a lot. They come with up to the dual-core 2nd-gen Core i7 CPUs. The Core i7-3612QM will be in upcoming configurations like the g6-2031TX and dv7-7003tx. Another option is full HD resolution on the Ivy-based g7. The upcoming g6 and g7 update will include the new Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 2GB GDDR5 andAMD Radeon HD 7670M 1GB DDR3 dedicated video cards as options, but in some configurations, the systems are also expected to have only the Intel HD 4000 IGP.
The g6 and g7 series also feature chiclet-style keyboards, Altec-Lansing speakers, and Dolby Advanced audio technology, as well as USB 3.0. Nothing on pricing yet.
