Extra Large typically refers to the garment size of a large person, the preferred style for urban street wear, or the largest cup served at the coffee shop. Hewlett-Packard has added that size reference to hard disk drives, with its release last week of the Pavilion dv4012AP notebook computer. Priced at $15,980, HP's latest Pavilion packs a 100-gigabyte hard disk drive for more capacity to enjoy video, games and music files. Combined with the notebook's dual-layer, 8xDVD+RW writer function, Intel 915 microprocessor and Centrino mobile technology with two-megabyte L2 cache memory, the Pavilion dv4012AP is well suited for quick storage, retrieval and sharing of up to 8.5GB of content at a time. It also features an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 graphic card and supports the latest high-definition television and Dynamic Video Memory Technology formats. The notebook has a 15.4-inch widescreen liquid-crystal display and a convenient credit card-sized remote control for handy notebook management.
