Expert Review

10 April 2009
  • Excerpt: The HP Pavilion dv2 delivers full notebook functionality in an attractive thin-and-light frame, and it’s very affordable. Multimedia buffs will appreciate this system’s dedicated ATI graphics solution, but its overall performance more closely resembles that of a netbook than an ultraportable notebook.
  • Pros: Affordable, Stylish thin-and-light form factor, Discrete graphics, Sizable hard drive
  • Cons: Loud, No internal optical drive, Cramped function keys, Weak ultraportable performance

HP Pavilion dv2-1030us

LAPTOP Magazine
7 April 2009
  • Summary: In terms of design and performance, the HP Pavilion dv2-1030us represents a step up from most netbooks. Also, the LED display is sharp and the notebook handles high-definition content well both on the screen itself and when output via HDMI. You can even play some 3D games at a decent clip. However, while we can live with the somewhat cramped keyboard and above-average heat, the dv2’s short battery life will be a deal breaker for many potential buyers.
  • Pros: Good performance for the price, Above-average graphics power, Sleek design, Great display and loud speakers,
  • Cons: Short battery life, Keyboard not full size, Display sits higher than other 12.1-inch notebooks, Runs very warm,
