Summary: I have had this laptop for over a year now and have been happy with it. It is the size of a chromebook but with a full Windows 8 operating system (8.1 was a free and easy upgrade). A unique feature is the built-in 4G. Although the listing cites 200MB of free data for 2 years, T-Mobile recently (mid 2014) increased that to the life of the computer. Also, for most existing postpaid T-Mobile customers, the 200MB increases to 1GB of free data per month - not a bad deal.

Summary: The size of this laptop makes it super portable. The SIM card hookup works fantastic with good 4G speed and when I am at home I just plug into my network. The card that I use in my Chromebook through T-Mobile gets shuffled back and forth between the two devices and hooks right up. So when I have used up my free data I can just use my paid SIM card on the HP or the Chromebook. It's very convenient.

Summary: I buy my DM1 4130nr (with T-MOBILE SIM Card included) from Amazon.com but now I'm in Italy without any T-MOBILE coverage. So , I try with a local carrie SIM but, this a very terrible surprise, the device take a signal from broadband carrier but is LOCKED !!! I've already chat with T-MOBILE support and they told me to ask to Hp Support. Anda Last but Least Itoday I discovery that may warranty perdiod is Expired in October 2013 !!
Summary: I've had mine for a year now and use it mainly with a thumb drive that keeps all of my files and information. There is plenty of memory left on the hard drive. After a day of use, however, I usually have to shut it down or it is lagging terribly. I use it mainly for surfing the internet and Word documents, so nothing that should make a computer lag to this extent.
This is a great little laptop I bring it with me to my customers to show pic.

Summary: I love this laptop, it's light fast, and clear. I bring it to customers to show pics. from other jobs, and I run my accounting package on it, it's a little slow starting up, but after that it runs very smooth.
Summary: This is a great Notebook/Netbook! I highly recommend this format! This is my 3rd netbook. I usually used them more than my main laptop. This is one is so good, that it is promoted to be the main laptap.
Summary: Using it for about 3 months and loving it. Very fast on win 8.1 , beautiful screen and great battery (4 hours least). With an ssd and 4 gb more ram the computer is silent and lasts longer.Using also bazos tweaker to set cpu profiles helps manage the battery better.
Summary: Got this for my brother. He loves it as it allows him to use the internet at his cabin. Ergonomics are good, display is sharp. It took a bit of tech support to get the 2 years of included T-Mobile service to be recognized (validated) and up and running. 100% improvement over his Intel Atom based laptop (which he promptly gave away)...
