I have owned this laptop for just over a year now and I wish I had chosen a different laptop to purchase for my first year at university. Because it is small and compact an USB external cd/DVD rom drive is needed for any entertainment use and as it is advertised and named HP Pavillion entertainment it just seems like a lot of hassle to enjoy this entertainment. Having a laptop I would expect it to be very portable, however with this external drive it means it is very awkward to use unless you are sitting at a desk or some sort of hard surface.
Furthermore I would have thought with a 4GB Ram the speed of the laptop would have been faster than it is, it often takes a while for programmes to load, especially if more than two programmes are already open and this was not something I expected with such a decent ram size.
The battery life of the laptop is reasonable at best even with the low power saving settings on lasting around an hour.
Personally I would not buy this HP laptop again.
The mobility you want, at a price you can afford. Go up to seven hours unplugged without giving up performance or style. The thin, lightweight HP Pavilion dm3 notebook PC is packed with power inside a bold aluminum chassis.
