New Notebooks Ahoy!

The HP Pavilion DM1Z is perhaps the first fully finished AMD Fusion based notebook. Specs include a 11.6-inch screen, 320GB HDD and runs Windows 7 Home Premium.

The Samsung Note PC 900X is one of the fastest IGP-based notebook around with a Windows Experience Score of 5.3! Not a bad score at all for a non-discrete GPU engine. The 900X uses the latest iteration of the Core i5/i7 processors, 4GB RAM, up to 256GB of storage and has a screen size of 13 inches.

Here's Toshiba showing some of its notebook magic with a glass-free 3D notebook. Specs include an Intel Core i5-M520 processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB storage, 15.6-inch display size and a pair of Harman Kardon speakers.

Now the interesting thing about the Toshiba glass-free 3D notebook is that it has a proximity sensor integrated and it will only engage auto stereoscopic mode when you're sitting close to the screen. Else, it will revert back to standard 2D playback. We presume it has something to do with a sweet spot viewing range, as well as using less power.

Here's one swell looking multimedia notebook with the Sony VAIO F series. Using a more powerful Core i7-720QM quad-core processor, the notebook also comes with an appropriate 16.4-inch screen real estate, 4GB of memory, 500GB storage and comes with Dolby Home Theater certification.

And of course, how can we not include the Acer Iconia? Uses the second generation Intel Core processors like the Core i5-480M, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory and a pair of 14-inch multi-touch displays (1366 x 768 pixels  resolution).
