Reviews for the HP Pavilion HDX9095EA

80% HP Pavilion HDX9095EA laptop Review
Source: Pocket Lint English
When it comes to releasing a large screen notebook, HP has been a little slow off the mark. After all, both Acer and Dell have been selling theirs for close to a year now. However, the HP Pavilion HDX9095EA is well worth waiting for and certainly lives up to its name as an "Entertainment Notebook". HP feels so confident about this machine they’ve even dubbed it "The Dragon". From the moment you receive this machine you know you’ve got a luxury product, as even the box it comes in has been designed. No simple brown box, no, unpacking the Dragon is supposed to be impressive. And so it is, the 20.1-inch screen sits on a pivot akin to those found on an external TFT monitor. This means instead of just opening the screen as you would a normal notebook, you can pitch it to exactly the angle you require. This is an important feature as there is a lot of screen to get to grips with. The quality of the panel is amazing and is easily as bright as that of your television.

HP refers to its HDX9095ea as the Dragon, a nickname we're inclined to use too since "desktop replacement" really doesn't sum up just how big it is. It's an 8.2kg beast (including power adapter) that boasts a 20.1in widescreen LCD. The display is a joy to use, being slightly brighter that Rock Xtreme 770 while retaining a similar reflective coating to increase contrast. The dragon reinforces its name with scaly artwork across the chassis. A double-jointed spine lets you angle the screen is various ways, including pulling it forward for better movie viewing. The screen has a 1,680x1,050 pixel resolution, which is enough to deal with 720p content but can't handle 1080p footage - this is a minor complaint, since high-definition content looks great on it anyway. HP has included an HD DVD drive (read only, but with DVD writing capabilities) to boost its high-definition credentials, while the graphics are provided courtesy of ATI's Radeon Mobility HD 2600XT chip, which has the same excellent video processing abilities as its desktop counterpart.

After the impressive show it made with its TouchSmart series earlier in the year (web ID: 106397, 107883), it's clear HP is taking to the consumer entertainment market in a big way. And it doesn't come much bigger than the HDX9095EA - a notebook we first spied at CeBIT in March, when it was known simply as "The Dragon". Now we've bagged a look at the first one in the UK. Open up the subtly patterned lid and you'll be greeted with the sight of its gargantuan 20.1in widescreen TFT. With a weight of more than 7kg, HP really is taking the desktop-replacement concept to its practical limit. This is no ordinary chassis either, with HP adopting the Intel-originated "stalk" lid design first seen on Dialogue's Flybook VM HSDPA (web ID: 110686). At this scale it needs some reinforcement, resulting in a large protuberance on the lid that contains mechanics to lock the hinge between certain angles. It feels solid enough, but is prone to some disturbing crunching sounds if shut in a hurry.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT: The 2600 XT is a higher clocked HD 2600/2700 with Avivo HD video functions. The performance lies a bit over the 9500M GS middle class graphics card. Modern DirectX 10 games are playable but not with highest details.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.

20.1": This format for notebook displays exists since 2006 for giant desktop replacement laptops and yet is rarely used. There does not exist any bigger screen for laptops. Critics request or deny, that these devices can be called notebook, laptop or mobile computer. The DTR-Laptops can't be carried easily, need much current, but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

7.1 kg: This laptop is extremely heavy. Even babys can be carried easier. Only few desktop replacements with 20 inch display fit in this class of weight.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
