Summary: The performance is about what you would expect for such a underpowered AMD chipset - Adequate. But, this isn't why I purchased the laptop. I purchased it for the promised 9.5 hours. Actually, I purchased 2 of these 3105m's.
Summary: I have used HP 3105m for over a month before placing this review. PROS: Nice looking device that is affordable, light weight, great design and has a nice keyboard. It has sufficient power to handle moderate multi tasking work. CONS: This device has a few problems with display drivers crashes.
Summary: My 2-week old desktop wouldn't come out of sleep mode one day so I had to use the Hp 3105m while my custom desktop was sent back to the vendor. It took 4 weeks before I got it back so in the meantime I hooked up my monitor and wireless keyboard & mouse to the HP 3105m and I was off to the races.
Summary: I bought this notebook as a safety net in case my other systems had a problem. The size is just right for something that lays around my workspace and does not get in the way. The on board software was a real bargin as I needed the window 7 professonal. The more I use it the more I like it.
Summary: Light weight & high performance. Keyboard is good as is mouse pad (and I have never liked a pad before) so I don't know why others are complaining about the pad. Videos are stunning with no lag time whatsoever. 7200 RPM HDD.
Summary: The 3105m (AMD E-350 CPU) is not a fast computer, but if you are looking for a computer that combines * Low price (similar to higher-end Atom-based netbooks) * Good portability (reasonably low weight and small size) * Somewhat better speed than Atom (much better than low-end single core Atom) then...
Summary: I bought mine as a backup for my Elitebook, but now I use it almost all the time. It isn't quite as fast as the Elitebook but it does all the normal computing stuff just fine, and it's so easy to carry around. Battery life has been between 5 and 9 hours depending on how hard I use it.
Summary: This is a very good netbook. The AMD E-350 platform is so much better than the Intel Atoms. Unfortunately I don't like the keyboard or the trackpad. I'm also not a huge fan of the shape of the computer when the lid is closed (very much a clam).
