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.
Buyer beware - poor quality of hinges and HP does not honor international warranty
21 March 2013
Summary: Purchased 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.
Summary: I bought this laptop in December 2011 to replace a larger, bulkier Dell that weighed twice as much and was too large and heavy for my briefcase when travelling. The HP dm-1 is lightweight and has plenty of RAM and ROM for my work and personal needs.
Summary: I really wish I had enough room to type a full review. You can read the real scoop on @maz0n. Don't know why Newegg curtails reviews to this extent.
Pros: The keyboard. It's an island keyboard, that fills the bottom of the clamshell right to the edges. The keyboard feels very solid and comfortable. The screen is nice. The battery life is good. Two stars for those couple of relatively minor positives, and the fact that at least when I took it out of...
Cons: It's too big for an 11.6" notebook - huge, fat bezel. Too wide, deep and tall. It's just not compact. Quality is abysmal. Cheap plastic all around, creaks and groans, case fan makes a loud buzz and 3rd time I start the computer, BIOS error says "case fan not operational". Hard drive clunking and ...
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.
Buyer beware - bad hinge design and HP does not honor international warranty
21 September 2011

Have a Lot of Problems with "Free" Mobile Broadband
21 September 2011
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.
Summary: I actually own this laptop and it's awful, the screen is not sturdy at all, the processor is running at 90% all the time and the only programs running at the time are windows and the security suite.
