Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm3t, i3-380UM

80% HP Pavilion dm3t Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall the HP Pavilion dm3t offers an impressive value for those looking for a 13-inch travel laptop. Our tests show the optional Intel Core i3 processor delivers plenty of performance, and the Pavilion dm3t's battery life is essentially the same as a much more expensive MacBook Air. The only potential issues that stood out during our review period were the weak and poorly placed speakers, the less-than-impressive touchpad, and graphics that simply aren't as good as what you can find on several cheaper notebooks. If you can live with those annoyances then the HP Pavilion dm3t is an affordable solution with enough performance to get your work done.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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

380UM: The Core i3-380UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops without Turbo Boost and AES functions (compared to the i5 and i7 UM CPUs). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.» 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.


1.8 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.
