HP Pavilion dm3-1020ea - 13.3in Laptop

 

HP delivers a smart AMD-based ultra-portable laptop that ticks all the right boxes.

Were it not for the somewhat sluggish network connectivity, we'd probably award the Pavilion dm3-1020ea a 9/10. All the same, it still gets a Recommended Award thanks to outstanding design, decent performance and a keyboard whose quality belies the...

HP Pavilion dm3-1020EA review

 

An impressively portable laptop with a stylish design and stunning 13.3' screen

Excellent screen ; Strong battery life ; Good build quality

No ODD ; Performance could be better ; 3D performance

Although this laptop is not the fastest in the world, the build quality, fantastic screen and good mobility will suit those looking for a machine to use on the go

HP Pavilion DM3-2040ea review

 

The DM3's good-looking exterior can't make up for average performance and poor usability.

HP Pavilion dm3-1105ea review

 

The HP Pavilion dm3-1105ea laptop is undeniably cute, with its 13.3in screen allowing HP to specify a smaller and lighter chassis. It also has an attractive brushed-aluminium finish and a shiny metal trim.

HP’s Pavilion dm3-1105ea is built for a life on the road, with highly portable dimensions and decent battery life. Its processor is underpowered, but its excellent build and generous RAM and storage provisions go a long way to justifying this laptop's...

HP Pavilion dm3-1035tx review

 

The first thing you notice of the HP Pavilion dm3-1035tx is its rich design. Its screen lid is of fingerprint-resistant brushed aluminum that feels elegant and premium when touched. This effect extends to the Pavilion dm3's palmrest and the area...

The HP Pavilion dm3-1035tx from a budget-conscious buyer's radar. Sure it has a clunky touchpad, but if you want a thin, stylish, good looking laptop, with very good performance and you can't afford a full-fledged multimedia laptop, the ultraportable...

HP Pavilion dm3 review

 

Beautiful build combines with stunning good looks in a budget laptop of rare pedigree.

There's no doubt the Pavilion dm3's battery life could be better, but at this price it just isn't enough to dent the HP Pavilion dm3's appeal. Its great looks, good build and sheer panache make it a fantastic all-round ultraportable.

HP Pavilion DM3

 

Think about it for a second. The DM3 isn't going to cost that much more than some high-priced netbooks, such as the Samsung Go and the Lenovo S12, and they don't offer the hard-drive space (or speed), RAM, or 3D performance that this machine offers. If...

HP Pavilion dm3-101tu (VV707PA) notebook

 

A reasonably lightweight, long-lasting and speedy 13in laptop

Four USB 2.0 ports, well built, long battery life, Core 2 Duo CPU

Too much unnecessary preinstalled software, touchpad is sometimes 'sticky', awkwardly located power button, no Bluetooth

The HP Pavilion dm3-101tu (VV707PA) is an inexpensive notebook, yet it packs plenty of CPU speed and battery life, and has good connectivity options. We think it would suit students looking for something light, long-lasting and comfortable to type on,...

HP Pavilion dv7 review: HP Pavilion dv7

 

There's a lot to like about the HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx. It's not that it's an extraordinary laptop or anything, and maybe I'm just too used to seeing ugly, cheap-looking Windows laptops at its price, but the dv7 looks and feels much better than its...

The HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx is a nice-looking big-screen laptop with long battery life and very good performance for the money.

The dv7's screen is low-resolution for its size and its integrated graphics drag down the performance some.

If you're looking for a lot of screen real estate and enough power for work and play, the HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx is a good place to start.
