Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm3-1010eg

Pure Subnotebook Entertainment With a Graphics Boost. HP is releasing the Pavilion dm3, a subnotebook for consumers, which should score points with its multimedia functionality and hybrid graphics. In this review, we will show you what the dm3 is really capable of and whether it lives up to HP's claims of the dm3 being a "light-weight" laptop with "heavy-weight" performance and up to 10 hours of battery life.
An all-rounder

The HP Pavilion dm3 is by no means a perfect machine as it has its share of ups and downs.

As an entertainment machine, the notebook is capable of playing HD content smoothly and it has a large 500GB hard drive which is perfect for storing lots of media. The notebook has a slick aluminium frame and a compact design but unfortunately it is a little on the heavy side. Plus, you will also need to carry an external optical drive which adds to the bulk. Another problem are the built-in speakers which were incredibly soft and lacked punch. Also, the notebook isn’t really great for gaming.

When HP introduced the Pavilion dv2 in the spring of 2009, it was seemingly the bridge between the netbook and ultraportable gap we’d been waiting for—that is, until we tested it. Now, HP has improved on the dv2 and changed up the design with its new $839 Pavilion dm3, which at first glance, looks more like a bridge between the Pavilion and EliteBook lines. The dm3 has a stunning design and impressive price, but the competition is fierce (and getting fiercer) in the thin-and-light category. If style and portability trump performance, this is the perfect notebook for you

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
