HP’s Winning Netbook Gets a Makeover

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.
  • 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.

HP Pavilion dm1-4010us

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.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Comfy keyboard and improved touchpad buttons, Solid performance, Affordable price, HP Launch Box and revamped Start Menu makes for easier navigation
  • Cons: Below-average battery life, Gets warm in spots

Review HP Pavilion dm1-4200sg Netbook

Notebookcheck
21 July 2011
  • Excerpt: 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. Those who do not want to spend more than 400 Euros for a mobile PC should not consider the more expensive ultrabooks, but rather the netbooks and subnotebooks with Intel or AMD processors.
  • 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

Review HP Pavilion dm1-3180eg Netbook

Notebookcheck
4 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The Pavilion dm1-3180eg scores highly compared to many of its netbook rivals thanks to its more advanced graphics performance . However, you should remember that this does not make an ultra-mobile multimedia or gaming machine out of a netbook, not by a long way. Modern graphics-intensive games will run on their lowest settings, if at all. But netbooks simply weren’t developed with this purpose in mind.
  • 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

  • Conclusion: The overall feel of the Pavilion dm1 is a very smooth looking ultraportable. It’s not incredibly thin, nor intensely light, weighing in at 1.5kgs. However, the Pavilion dm1 does have certain appeal to it; it’s curving at just the right angles, buttons are just the right places and the overall look is just…pleasant. Nothing spectacular, but far from mediocre.

HP Pavilion dm1 (4108AU)

CNET
8 March 2012
  • Summary: The dm1 is attempting to occupy a price point, and hold on to it to the best of its ability. If you don't want the bulk of a 15.6-inch budget machine yet can't afford an ultrabook, don't stoop down to the netbook level: get this instead.
  • Pros: Good build quality, Excellent keyboard and trackpad, Price will suit those looking for something modest and small
  • Cons: Ultrabooks trounce it in performance (although are double the price), Screen isn't great

CNET
23 January 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Excellent battery life, Sturdy construction, Comfortable keyboard, Powerful by netbook standards
  • Cons: Dim screen, Awkward trackpad, Fairly chunky
