Review HP Pavilion dm1-4200sg Netbook

Notebookcheck
18 September 2012
  • Summary: Double standards. There are very few new netbooks, but all the more minis with Zacate APU. HP uses AMD's smallest processing core in the low-cost mobile Pavilion.
  • Pros: Keyboard feedback, Good battery life, Short charging time of two hours, Easy maintenance access, USB 3.0 + Bluetooth 4.0, Fast typing, even without the perfect office equipment. The weak performance is compensated by the long battery life.
  • Cons: Bendable chassis, Relatively high weight, Relatively low application performance, High heat emission under load, TFT is not anti-glare, Less gloss and higher stability of the construction. User would gladly give up the easy access to the hardware. Removing a couple of screws is no big deal. A flexible base unit does extensive damage to the quality feel.

HP Pavilion dm1 (AMD E2-1800) review

Liliputing
4 July 2012
  • Summary: The HP Pavilion dm1 might be one of the best laptops available for under $400, but it’s not exactly a perfect machine. It’s not as fast, small, or quiet as an ultrabook. And it can’t handle Netflix HD video playback. On the other hand, it’s a great little computer for anyone looking for a larger screen and better performance than you get with most netbooks. Technically the model I reviewed costs $455, since it has an AMD E2-1800 processor and 500GB hard drive.

Review: HP Pavilion dm1

Wired
31 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Only six months ago, we were gushing about HP’s Pavilion dm1z , declaring it a savior to the beleaguered netbook space, an affordable and handsome way to take a pint-sized computer with you just about anywhere. Over the summer, HP went back to the drawing board, redesigning the netbook again and dropping the “z.” The newly christened Pavillion dm1 is nearly as compelling as its forebear. What’s new are almost all cosmetic changes you’ll notice immediately.

HP Pavilion dm1z (fall 2011)

CNET
19 October 2011
  • Summary: There have been plenty of 11-inch AMD-powered ultraportables this year, but HP's Pavilion dm1z was the first, and this updated version puts it back in the lead in this crowded category.
  • Pros: A solid upgrade to one of our favorite laptops, the new HP Pavilion dm1z adds Beats Audio, a better touch pad, and an updated AMD processor.
  • Cons: Benchmark scores and battery life are about the same as those of the previous dm1z, and a promised Intel Core i3 version is still MIA.

HP Pavilion dm1-4010us (Late 2011) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
13 October 2011
  • Summary: The $479 HP Pavilion dm1-4010us has a lot of things going for it, including sleek looks, portability, Beats Audio, and enough performance muscle for everyday computing and even light gaming. HP is also really onto something with HP Launch Box and the revised Start menu--they're subtle additions, but make for a better computing experience.

Review HP Pavilion dm1-3180eg Netbook

Notebookcheck
17 March 2011
  • Summary: Netbook with powerful graphics? HP is trusting in the latest Fusion hardware from AMD for this dm1-3180eg netbook. An E-350 dual-core processor, 3 GB of RAM and an integrated HD 6310 graphics chip should boost the 11-inch midget’s performance.
  • Pros: Long battery life, Low energy consumption, Good keyboard, AMD well and truly putting Intel under pressure in the netbook arena.
  • Cons: Reflective screen, Noisy, Poor touchpad

Expert Review

ComputerShopper
12 January 2011
  • Conclusion: HP doesn’t call the Pavilion dm1 a netbook—it’s the “Pavilion dm1 Entertainment PC”—but it squarely competes against netbooks on size and battery life. Our take? Its performance is so much better, and its media-playback capabilities are so much more capable, that it wouldn’t be fair to saddle it with the moniker of "netbook." For about $100 more than an entry-level netbook, you can have a multi-talented portable with virtually none of the common netbook frustrations.
  • Pros: Speedy for its price, size class, Superb multimedia playback, Very good battery life, Roomy touch pad, Sharp, bright screen
  • Cons: Noticeable fan noise under load, 3D performance can’t keep up with latest games
