Without any fanfare HP has updated its website with the company's first laptops to feature Intel's new 22nm Ivy Bridge processors. As noted by Laptop Reviews, the low-end Pavilion dv4-5000 pairs a 14-inch 1366 x 768 display with a 2.3GHz i7-3610QM, a Nvidia GeForce GT 630M GPU, and 4GB of RAM. The dv6-7000 takes the same specs, but substitutes a 15.6-inch display of the same resolution, while the dv7-7000 ups the ante all around with a 2.6 GHz i7-3720QM and a 17.3-inch 1920 x 1080 display. 8GB of RAM, dual hard-drive bays, and a Nvidia GeForce GT 650M round out the package. While these aren't some of the sexier Ivy Bridge machines that we've been looking forward to, their appearance seems to be an indication that the rumored Ivy Bridge delays we'd heard about may have indeed been overblown. April was originally pegged as the release date for Ivy Bridge computers, but unfortunately, HP's site has no release or pricing information listed as of this time.
