Review HP Pavilion dm3-1010eg laptop

Notebookcheck
9 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The test model at hand performs quite well, conforming to the demands of a small, mobile entertainer , on the whole. The switcheable graphics on demand  is good for momentarily adjusting graphics performance and battery life.
  • Pros: Comfortable single-keys keyboard, Range of ports, External USB-DVD-LW included in delivery, Good application performance, The entire concept and the conformation to the designed realm of use as a mobile entertainer.
  • Cons: Glossy display, Surface of the touchpad, It's a shame that the reflective display unnecessarily limits the mobility of the device. An internal DVD drive or an external eSATA (which is lacking) drive would offer better transfer rates.

  • Summary: The DM3 definitely fills a gap between netbook and notebook and is a much needed product for consumers. While I did have some issues with the HP load of software, lack of battery life, and the heat generation under heavy use the DM3 remains one of the best ultra portable laptops I have personally...

Review: HP Pavilion dm3

Wired
28 October 2009
  • Excerpt: There’s so much to like in HP’s new Pavilion dm3 that it’s hard to know where to start. Perhaps with the looks: The aluminum and magnesium case looks cool, totally modern, and though it’s got some plastic components (most notably the underside), it feels quite durable.
  • Pros: Slim, stylish and sturdy. Outstanding keyboard. Four USB ports (plus HDMI and an SD card slot) is a rarity in a machine this portable. Battery is graced with amazing life.
  • Cons: Awful, awful touchpad (it’s an ongoing problem with HP Pavilion notebooks.) At 4.2 pounds, heavy for this category. Careful you don’t step in the shovelware.

HP Pavilion dm3 (dm3t) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
23 October 2009
  • Summary: There's a lot to like about the HP Pavilion dm3t. It's sleek, lasts all day on a charge, and performs well. Plus, you have the choice of adding discrete graphics. Unfortunately, the imprecise touchpad on this machine slowed us down, and literally made us less productive while using it.

  • Excerpt: The HP DM3 looks great from almost every angle. Since the chassis is modelled on the beautiful Envy series, it looks like an expensive laptop but costs almost hald as much as the Envy 14.

A reasonably lightweight, long-lasting and speedy 13in laptop

Good Gear Guide.au
29 September 2010
  • Summary: The HP Pavilion dm3-101tu (VV707PA) is an inexpensive notebook, yet it packs plenty of CPU speed and battery life, and has good connectivity options. We think it would suit students looking for something light, long-lasting and comfortable to type on, but even business users might want to look into...
  • Pros: Four USB 2.0 ports, well built, long battery life, Core 2 Duo CPU
  • Cons: Too much unnecessary preinstalled software, touchpad is sometimes 'sticky', awkwardly located power button, no Bluetooth
