HP Pavilion dv5-1011ea 15.4in Blu-ray Notebook

 

We take our first look at HP's new consumer notebook range with this Blu-ray equipped multimedia machine.

Build quality is pretty solid, too. There was no evidence of creaking panels or unwanted flex and though glossy finishes predictably pick up fingerprints fairly easily, a cleaning cloth is provided and only real carelessness should result in any...

HP Pavilion dv5-1110em review

 

A stylish multimedia laptop, but everyday performance could be stronger

Blu-ray reader ; Decent graphics card ; Attractive design

Sticky touchpad ; Low res screen

With a Blu-ray drive and decent graphics performance, this laptop offers great value for money. The only shame is that the screen isn't Full HD

HP Pavilion dv5-1011ea review

 

A compact and shiny media centre that offers Blu-ray at a great price

Blu-ray drive ; Decent performance ; Impressive build quality ; Nice price

Only 1280 x 800 native resolution ; Poor battery life

One of the better laptops at this price point, its Blu-ray drive and impressive spec combine to make this a great machine

HP's dv5-1000ea is a smaller version of the dv7-1000ea that won a Best Buy award two months ago.

HP Pavilion dv5-1000ea review

 

The dv5-1000ea is a good all-rounder, and looks great too. However, the Inspiron is £116 cheaper, and most people won't notice the performance deficit. Factor in the higher-resolution screen, and the 1525 is better value.

It's big, shiny and bold; Matt Sparkes has a play with HP's latest budget entertainment laptop to find out if it's up to the job.

HP Pavilion dv5-1108AX_01

 

A Ferrari body with a Datsun engine.

Looks great, wide variety of expansion ports, e-SATA port, HDMI port, good keyboard

Slow CPU performance, heavier than average, lower battery life than average

Although this device offers a wide variety of expansion options and features a modern and alluring design, the ineffective CPU is a major deterrent.

HP Pavilion DV5-1010TX_01

 

Powerful, feature-packed and very shiny

Built-in TV tuner, Blu-ray player, HDMI port, eSATA port, good screen, good processor

Heavy, divisive design, low battery life, heat

If you don’t mind your laptop attracting more attention than you, the HP DV5-1010TX_01 is a fast but heavy unit that comes with a built-in TV tuner and Blu-ray player for a reasonable price.
