Summary: DV8 is great.Just make sure wich one you are getting.1000,1100,or 1200. Watch to make sure if you are looking for Bluetooth, or TV tuner that it's actually listed as a feature.All do not have that.All in all, if you are looking for a DV8 you already know what it is.Which is the reason you are looking for it.If you do not, a DV-7 would probably serve you better.DV-8 is for those looking for a DV-8, none other....
Summary: I love this laptop and I have owned it for nearly 2 months now. Firstly, its looks. The hp pavillion is stylish, smooth, and has obviously been designed to look nice. Not a block of plastic with a keyboard like some laptops . The keyboard is a good size and easy to type on, and it has a numberpad aswell which can be useful sometimes.
Summary: this is a great laptop but whatever you do dont break it.i sent mine back to be fixed by hp on 7th dec 09 and they still cannot tell me when i will actually get it back.great product dreadful after sales service.
Summary: ...I nearly was and started to wonder about Windows 7 compatability etc. All the software I have either works 'out of the box' or with a little bit of searching, available from the software vendor's website. This is a great laptop - not particularly portable but then an 18.4" laptop is not really expected to be.
Summary: I thought this laptop serves well for people who want something in terms of portability that is between a laptop and a desktop. The screen does have excellent resolution and viewing of DVDs / online tv is great. In fact, there don't seem to be many laptops that compare in terms of screen size which are a similar price. I agree that it is great, but also over priced.
Summary: After using a Dell laptop for 3 years, using Vista, facing constant overheating issues etc. I decided to get a new laptop. After much consideration and reading other reviews this the HP Pavilion dv8387ea seemed a great option. I can happily say that I made a great choice. First of all the appearance of this laptop is great. The touch pad is a little difficult to use, it almost being like a mirror.
Pros: Quick, simple, great to look at.
Cons: Touch pad very mirror like and difficult to use
Summary: I love this machine! This was the first laptop which I ever owned I got it last year in preparation for moving to Uni and i still sit here today typing on it now. I don't feel that the laptop has aged at all, It has been extremely reliable and still has the specifications to cope with most of the latest games and other software which is being released.
