Continuing the march toward 11.6-inch laptops, HP is making the new Pavilion dm1 its CES 2011 showpiece. At slightly less than 1 inch thick and 3.5 pounds, the dm1 is one of the first laptops to use AMD's new Fusion platform, which is powered by AMD's new "APU," an accelerated processing unit. AMD's new platform combines a traditional CPU and better-than-integrated graphics (and DirectX 11 support) on a single chip. The actual CPU is AMD's new 1.6GHz dual-core E350, with AMD Radeon HD 6310M graphics. More - Dan Ackerman, CNET
HP's CoolSense technology is quickly becoming standard across HP's laptop lines, and today it gets added to the massive 17-inch HP Envy 17 (and it also turns up in the new 11-inch Pavilion dm1). CoolSense is a control panel for setting fan performance, from maximum cooling to quietest operation. HP says its inclusion in the Envy 17 makes it "the first high-performance HP PC with advanced cooling technology."
