This the dm3t is perfect for the student, the couch user, consumer in search or portability. This machine’s ability to stay cool no matter what you do is really impressive, and the 6 hour battery life for the performance you get makes this machine worthwhile. At $550, the dm3t offers up a terrific blend of functionality and productivity solutions, and is a great machine for entertainment of any kind.

The HP Pavilion dm3t is a significant update over last year’s dm3 model, offering better performance and a more stylish look, all at a lower price. The dm3t is a solid, full-featured productivity notebook with good battery life and responsive performance at a very reasonable price. If you’re up for a lightweight notebook at a rock-bottom price, you’ll be pleased with it.

The HP dm3t price is very fairly priced with the starting price of $599.  I prefer the dm3t over the dm3z due to the better battery performance and lower amount of heat, but the cheaper price tag and ATI graphics on the AMD configuration might appeal more to some people, it depends on your wants and preferences.  The port selection of the dm3t is very good, the screen decent, speakers good and battery life superb.  I’m a big fan of the Intel CULV processors thanks to their good performance and low power usage

HP dm3t review
Source: Engadget English
Man, we really wanted to fall in love with the dm3t. It's small, sexy, and about as well-built as any other PC laptop we've seen in a while, and the spec list is solid, if not spectacular. But it's hard to fall in love with any laptop that has both a substandard display and a terrible trackpad -- the two parts of a machine you spend the most time interacting with. It's particularly frustrating because they're such obvious and glaring flaws in an otherwise excellent machine, and we simply have no idea how or why HP decided to ship the dm3t without fixing them. Now, where's that sandpaper?

This sleek aluminum-clad notebook offers good performance and over 9 hours of battery life, but its touchpad slows you down. There’s a lot to like about the HP Pavilion dm3t. It’s sleek, lasts all day on a charge, and performs well. Plus, you have the choice of adding discrete graphics. Unfortunately, the imprecise touchpad on this machine slowed us down, and literally made us less productive while using it. Overall, we recommend the ASUS UL30A because of its better ergonomics. But if you can live with its few flaws, there are enough things going for the dm3t to make it a worthwhile purchase.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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

Intel Celeron Dual-Core: The Intel Celeron Dual-Core familiy consists out of dual core CPUs for cheap laptops. Compared to the Celeron M single core family the biggest advantage (in addition to the second core) is the Enhanced Speedstep function, which enables the notebook to downclock the CPU in Idle mode. Therefore, the current consumption can be much lower. Compared to the Core (2) Duo or Pentium Dual-Core processors, the Celeron Cual-Core features much less L2 Cache which leads to a lower performance per clock.

SU2300: Entry level dual core CPU for small laptops. Offers only a low level performance due to the low clock speed and because of the Celeron brand some power saving features are disabled.» 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.
