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

Comment

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.

L335: Entry level dual core processor for small and thin subnotebooks. Based on the old K10 / K8 mixture produced in 65nm and compareable with a 1.2-1.3 GHz Core 2 Duo (performance wise).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
