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

11 May 2010
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: 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...
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: i have had it for a month bought it from amazon for 599. for me works well using the internet not too heavy to carry around good entertainment features good looking only drawback runs on the hot side if you use for example on top of your bed, better to use on a table or a cool place
Summary: A lot has been said about this laptop, about how it's prone to fingerprinting (which it is) and how it tends to get pretty hot (it doesn't really, those people have never used an inspiron and don't know what hot is).
Summary: A great looking, very cost efficient laptop. Worth the money. Lightweight and stylish. A quick machine that can handle multimedia applications well. Pros: Good multimedia capability, lightweight, stylish, decent battery life Cons: External optical drive (though included), smudges with fingerprints...
