Summary: Bought this computer in 2009/2010 I believe. Never had a problem with it until recently, the screen has broke. When I turn it on everything is green. And that is probably from leaving it in the car on a hot day. Its lightweight and perfect for school.
Summary: I really like this little laptop. It's so lite and ultra portable. I like the look as well. All of the different ports for media are great. I hook up my laptop to my TV with the HDMI port and can stream TV and video onto my flat screen.
Call it a netbook plus...or an ultra (really) portable

Summary: It seems some people are very, very protective of the term "netbook" so I won't try to call the dv2 a netbook, but it is fair to call it a netbook "plus" as it is designed to fit between the traditional 8 and 10 inch screen netbooks and the so-called "ultra portable" notebooks that begin around 14...
Summary: Straight to the point - This little guy is great for the price. It runs great and I see no problems in Vista. HP's bloatware is a seperate issue. Things it can do better than a netbook: 1. Play games to an extent (slightly older games or newer ones with lower settings).
Summary: This device is a better option for those who are thinking to buy a netbook as I wanted. There are some reasons I didn't bought a netbook: - Almost all have 160 GB HD - It has only 1gb ram, instead some that have 2gb - Some have reduced keyboard - They don't have dedicated video card This HP-Dv2 has...
Summary: I believe that this laptop will provide some of you with exactly what you want, not a netbook with a 10" screen, but not a heavy laptop with a 15" screen. This is in between. Honestly, I love the laptop, I set mine up to dual boot the Windows Vista, and I installed Windows 7 on the other drive...
Good little machine in its own product category, considering the compromises

Summary: This little machine has served me well since I bought it in July (it is now October). The Pavilion DV2-1030US is a product in its own market segment. It's too big to be considered a netbook, but the performance and price are a little too weak to be considered a true ultraportable.
Summary: If you've been put off by the heat and battery life issues reported by some reviewers, let me say that these completely disappear under Windows 7. I noticed the fan blowing hot air out of the side vent shortly after booting into Windows Vista for the first time but after installing Windows 7 and...
