Reviews for the HP Pavilion DM3-1005AX

60% HP Pavilion dm3 1005AX

The HP Pavilion dm3 1005AX sells for Rs. 44,990 plus taxes. That is expensive when you compare it with one of its competitors, the Acer Timeline 3810TZ, which sells for as low as Rs. 32,000. The Dell Inspiron 13z, which we thought was one of the best 13-inch laptops under Rs. 40,000, no longer appears on Dell's website. The Vostro V13's price has also been bumped up to Rs. 44,000 now, making it unworthy of purchase. The MSI X350 has a similar price tag like the dm3, but it too has a touchpad issue.

The HP Pavilion DM3—1005AX belongs to the ULV laptop category, which means that it is powered by an ultra-low voltage processor, has a slim design, is light in weight and hence very convenient to carry. While these traits are typical of ULV laptops, the DM3 is one of best you’ll find in this segment, mainly because it looks sexy, performs well and its build quality is simply superb.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330: Lower clocked Radeon 4530 with a current consumption of 7 Watt (according to AMD). Supports DirectX 10.1 and Avivo HD for HD video acceleration.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
