HP Pavilion dm1 reviewed – solid CULV ultrathin

November 22, 2009 at 4:02 pm

HP Pavilion dm1The HP Pavilion dm1 11.6-inch CULV-powered ultra-thin has seen its first review from Netbooked. It is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Intel SU2300 processor that should be able to handle 1080p YouTube video. It wins points for including a solid keyboard, low fan noise, good audio and a battery life of 4.5 hours.

However, on the negative side, the lid is subject to flex, the touchpad doesn’t support multi-touch and has rather stiff touchpad buttons. The model tested also didn’t feature Bluetooth and Wi-Fi draft-n. Click through for the main key review points.

Key review points of the HP Pavilion dm1:

  • Very good build quality. Although there is some flex on the glossy lid.
  • Easy accessibility to components.
  • The keyboard has very little flex and is slightly cramped compared to other 11.6-inch ultra-thins. The function keys are hard to decipher due to the small font used.
  • The dm1 has an 11.6-inch glossy display. It appears to be comparable to other 11.6” ultra-thins. It is also bright enough for daily use. It opens up to 130 degrees.
  • Sound quality is very good, not surprising considering it uses Altec Lansing speakers.
  • The Pavilion dm1 is generally quiet with low fan noise levels. It’s one of the quietest ultra-thins on the market right now.
  • Touchpad is large but average. The main complaint is that the mouse buttons are noisy and stiff. It also doesn’t support multi-touch gestures.
  • The battery lasted for just under 4.5 hours under real-world usage.
  • The 6-cell battery is completely flush with the chassis.
  • The dm1 has low heat build-up, although it can get a little warm on the left palm rest area.
  • The microphone has very good quality, both clear and loud. The 0.3MP webcam wasn’t so great in low light conditions.

    Thanks for the unique tips contributed on this blog. I have seen that many insurers offer clients generous discounts if they decide to insure multiple cars with them. A significant variety of households currently have several autos these days, particularly those with more mature teenage young children still residing at home, as well as savings with policies may soon mount up. So it is a good idea to look for a bargain.
