"The HP t182k will use an Athlon64 processor with a model number of 3100+, according to a number of different hardware enthusiast Web sites, including AMDzone.com, that have posted a link to a document on HP's site, available at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/bph08342/bph08342.pdf
Introducing the Athlon64 at a model number rating of 3100+ appears to indicate that the chip does not perform as well as AMD's current 32-bit Athlon XP 3200+ processor, released in May. The Athlon64 3100+ will have a clock speed of 1.8GHz and Level 2 cache of 1MB, according to the HP document. The Athlon XP 3200+ runs at 2.2GHz and comes with 640KB of Level 2 cache."
The Inquirer has discovered straight from HP that the information regarding the t182k is in fact outdated, and that this particular product was actually released already using an Athlon XP processor:
"The information that was available on the HP web site regarding the HP Pavilion t182k was an outdated planning document for a product released in the Korean market in April. As we plan our product road maps, they often change many times prior to release. The product actually launched with the AMD Athlon XP 2500+ processor and this document was not updated to reflect the change.
As the HP product, which will feature the AMD Athlon 64 processor is not yet available, we cannot confirm any further details about our upcoming offering at this time."
So it appears that an Athlon 64 system is still in the works at HP, but it won't be the one we reported on earlier.
