      An excellent, very portable little machine

      I bought the HP Pavilion DM1 last year after my last Hewlett Packard laptop packed up with no warning. I was looking for something a little more lightweight and portable, as I do quite a lot of writing and wanted to be able to easily transport my laptop around with me. Most laptops have a 15.6 inch screen, which is still quite large and the netbooks, whilst small, aren't very versatile. This laptop sits in between the two with an 11.6 inch screen but unlike the netbook it has all the standard features of a laptop just in a more compact body.

      Although the screen size is smaller than the average laptop, it doesn't feel like a small screen. The keyboard is a good size. The laptop is quite lightweight and very transportable. I can pack it in my suitcase when I go away on business and it takes up very little space and adds little weight to my bag.

      The laptop comes with a full operating system (we have Windows 7), in-built webcam, HDMI input, 3 USB inputs, SD card slot, video input, bluetooth and wireless LAN capability. One thing it is lacking is a CD/DVD drive but we picked up a separate drive which fits neatly in the bag and is easy to use, so that problem was easily solved.

      One of the great features of this laptop is its battery life which is around 6 hours. Great for if you're on the go with nowhere to connect up.

      One thing I have noticed is that it does tend to get quite hot, particularly when used on lap for a long period of time. Sometimes the fan sounds like it's working extra overtime which can be noisy and a bit annoying (as well as worrying). Also, the touchpad can be a bit hypersensitive - I've managed to accidentally switch it off a couple of time which has caused me some frustration.

      It also took me a little while to figure out how to use the home and end buttons, as the keyboard is laid out slightly differently to how I'm used to.

      I bought the laptop at Currys for around £350. It cost about another £20 for the separate DVD drive.

      In summary
      Pros: it's very lightweight and transportable. The small screen size isn't a barrier and it has good features. Battery life is excellent.

      Cons: it gets hot!

      Dinky, Transportable and Speedy

      Fast, compact, consumer friendly and simple - I find this notebook extremely easy to use, it's neat size makes it convenient to transport and work with almost anywhere. The keyboard is a large size considering the overall size of the product which makes it very user friendly. The mouse pad however is alittle close to the keyboard and this can be frustrating if you catch it as the cursor can jump around the screen.

      With Windows 7 installed, the user interface is clean and laid out in an organised way - it takes some time to get used to the task bar and icons within programs if you're used to xp etc but that only takes a couple of uses.

      No disc drive built in is a little bit frustrating at times but an external drive has sorted that problem and the memory card reader built in is very useful and saves wires everywhere when getting those pictures transferred!
