HP announced the Pavilion DM1z 11.6-inch notebook earlier this week that is similar to the Pavilion DM1 but comes in a champagne colour and is powered by AMD’s latest Nile single-core processor, the 1.7GHz Athlon II Neo K125 and ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics.
Peter from Netbooked managed to get hands-on with the DM1z (or DM1a as it’s known in Japan) and posted his initial impressions. He found that the ergonomics haven’t really improved with a cramped keyboard and touchpad with stiff mouse buttons. There’s plenty of upgrade potential with access to the HDD, RAM and an empty mini PCI-E slot. Check out the video after the break.
