Good for about a year...then lags terribly.

K. Baird, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: It stated clearly that this laptop was upgraded to 8gb ram, but the machine only has 2gb of ram. Would love to have the other 6gb of ram to improve performance.

Great computer, shame about the operating system

AmericanAbroad "AmericanAbroad", Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: This is the second Pavilion DM1 computer we've bought; the first one was in 2011. The hardware on this computer is fine, but after starting it for the first time I realized what a terrible mistake I had made buying a Windows 8 computer. Microsoft got it right with XP and Windows 7, but Windows 8 is just wrong, in so many ways there isn't enough space to go into it here. It would have been far better for me if this computer had come loaded with Vista.

Have a Lot of Problems with "Free" Mobile Broadband

Unknown, Amazon
11 June 2013
  • Summary: After setting this up, T-Mobile says I only have a 30 day free trial, not 2 years of service. Tried calling HP for support and they were unwilling or unable to help. Don't every buy an HP product if you expect to get their "award-winning" service because you won't get any. Will be returning this product if the seller does not resolve this matter.

Buyer beware - bad hinge design and HP does not honor international warranty

srvsan, Amazon
25 March 2013
  • Summary: Purchased a previous iteration of the product in Singapore less then a year ago and the left hinge has cracked on the inside causing the LCD screen casing to unhinge from the rest of the unit. The unit was in-warranty and multiple calls to HP support in the U.S. led to nowhere and culminated in HP refusing to provide any remediation other than my having to ship the unit to HP,Singapore. This unit supposedly comes with an international warranty with global coverage.

  • Summary: I would not recommend this product. Not really satisfied at first but my son convinced me to keep it. Low and behold, 32 days later the hard drive went out and have had nothing but problems since.

Don't waste your money!

Missreviewqueen, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this laptop around 2years ago when it was still pretty new so mine came with windows 7. Since then I have had nothing but problems with this laptop. First the laptop is not built well and you will notice that straight away. After around 3months the connectors between the laptop and keyboard part were already wobbling considerably and after 6months there were real problems. The computer was pretty slow from the start and was ridiculously slow over time.
