Reviews for the 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.
