HP has announced its first ever DirectX 10 laptop, the HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC. The machine - codenamed Dragon - is clearly a desktop replacement built with home leisure in mind.
Watch our exclusive video report below.
The HDX is huge - the 20in widescreen has a resolution of 1,680 x 1,050, so although it's incapable of 1080p high definition, there's certainly scope for gathering a few friends round the screen.
Its sheer size - around 8kg - makes it comfortably one of the largest notebooks ever, on a par with the gigantic Dell XPS M2010.
The HDX also sports a dual-hinged screen, much like the Flybook VM, to allow you to move the screen towards the front of the machine.
The laptop is one of 13 new notebooks due from HP this year, with Todd Bradley, vice president of HP's personal systems group, claiming that over 49 per cent of his group's revenue comes from mobile devices.
