The HP Pavilion dv2 was a series of notebook computers manufactured by Hewlett-Packard Company.


In January 2009, AMD announced the Yukon mobile platform for ultra-portable notebooks.[1] The announcement was shortly followed by HP introducing the dv2z based on the Yukon platform.[2] The dv2z was an ultra-portable notebook that measured under 1-inch thick and weighed under 3.81 pounds. The traditional internal optical drive (DVD-ROM) was moved to an external USB enclosure to allow for the slimmer design.

The laptop initially came with a AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 processor and used ATI Radeon Xpress X1250 integrated graphics. The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410 was an optional discrete GPU. On June 9, 2009, HP incorporated the dual core AMD Athlon/Turion Neo X2 processors.[3]

The laptop came with Microsoft Windows Vista pre-installed. A free upgrade offer for Microsoft Windows 7 was made available later in 2009.[4]
