Have owned this notebook for a few years now and have got on quite well with it. For my use (watching tv and movies, bit of gaming and homework) this notebook is quite useful. The screen size and quality are both perfect, as is the weight of the machine.
However one of the major downsides of the product is that it can overheat quite badly. When playing games that require a bit of processing power, after an hour or so, the base of the laptop can become almost too hot to touch.
Also if you plan to buy this laptop for any sort of gaming it wont run them. On online games websites I found the play to be glitchy and unplayable - games varying from Runescape to Miniclip. Also when playing games such as Starwars Battlefront 2 or Civilization 5, only on the lowest settings will these be usable.
When watching movies the playback is also glitchy and sound can become unsynced. Also HD playback will not work well on this product.
However for general productivity stuff such as typing, presentations - this notebook will do the job well.
Unfortunately though the build quality is rather poor - so far I have had the screen hinges come off and crack the outer casing and now have to re-screw the hinges every week or so.
Take it with you. HP dare you. For ultra-mobility at an accessible price, look no further. The HP Pavilion dm1 packs a powerful punch of stylish mobile computing. When you need to take your photos, music and movies with you.
