The newest model, the 802, comes with an Intel Quad Core 2.66 GHz processor while the 803 comes stocked with a 2.83 GHz processor.  Love it or hate it Vista Home Premium comes on both models.  In order to run the latest games at the highest resolutions, this miniature beast comes loaded with dual Nvidia 9800S cards configured in SLI.  Running all of this hardware requires some heavy duty cooling.  In order to keep the PC from melting, HP has outfitted the Blackbird with cooling.  Both the 2.66GHz and 2.83GHz equipped models come with 4GB of DDR2.  Come on HP  you couldn’t throw in DDR3 when your competition is using it?.
