HP Pavilion dv5-1000ea review

expertreviews.co.uk
23 February 2009
  • Excerpt: HP's dv5-1000ea is a smaller version of the dv7-1000ea that won a Best Buy award two months ago. It has a smaller 15.4in screen, and doesn't have a Blu-ray drive, but it looks identical, with a smart, glossy black lid and a beautiful dark-grey case with a chrome finish along the edges. A row of touch-sensitive buttons sits below the screen to provide volume and control media playback.
