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 fle...
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.
Summary: The HP Pavilion DM1 netbook doesn't have the best screen in the business but it's a good option for tackling essential tasks on the go. The ability to playback high-definition video will no doubt appeal to movie lovers and those who don't want to spend a fortune on a laptop.
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.
Pros: Still one of the best netbooks on the market. An all-around solid unit that looks better than ever. Upgraded webcam and audio. Improved battery life.
Cons: Screen is significantly dimmer than the dm1z and viewing angles aren’t great. Slight performance drop.
Excerpt: Last year I looked at the HP Mini 5103 , which was a traditional netbook in many ways, but also came packing the nVidia ION chipset … and a $750 price tag. In many ways that system represented the death of the traditional netbook, which was followed by what many call ‘notbooks’ – computers that...
Pros: Great performance; excellent portability; fantastic price; loads of features for the money!
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.
