Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm3-1030us

50% HP Pavilion dm3-1030us
Source: PC Mag English
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.

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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.
