In their sub 400$ laptops! How Awesome is this? I mean a Sandy Bridge laptop for around the price of a good netbook? That’s awesome, pair that with an SSD drive from one of my last blogs, and you will have one screamingly fast laptop!

Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors aren’t just for Apple MacBooks and elite Windows laptops anymore. The latest and greatest Intel chip technology is now landing in sub-$400 lappies from Hewlett-Packard and Toshiba.

To wit, behold HP’s $349 Pavilion g4-1104dx. In addition to goodies like a 14-inch LED display, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 320GB hard disk drive, a multiformat optical drive, a Webcam, and integrated Ethernet, you get a Pentium processor B940 with integrated Intel graphics silicon.

No, that’s not the Pentium processor of yore. The new Pentium is a bona fide Sandy Bridge processor, which means it taps into Intel’s latest 32-nanometer technology and graphics.
