Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm3-1030us
Source: PC Mag
Two words to describe the HP Pavilion dm3-1030us ($648.98 list)? Sleek and slow. The 13-inch laptop eschews common plastic for a brushed aluminum chassis that is both lightweight and rock-solid. As a mainstream laptop, the HP Pavilion dm3-1030us cannot compete. When viewed as a tony netbook alternative, however, this brushed aluminum Pavilion becomes a bit more attractive.
