Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm3z

HP dm3z Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
The HP dm3z is definitely priced to move with a starting price of $549 (and less if you look around) which gets you a very attractively designed 13.3” portable notebook that has decent performance. The build quality of the dm3z is most impressive for a laptop of this price point. The heat issues on the left hand palm rest of the dm3z might bother some, but it’s a minor complaint in the scheme of things. The port selection of the dm3z is very good, the screen good, speakers good and battery life decent — though not close to the range of 6 – 10 hours of battery some Intel CULV laptops are getting.

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.

MV-40: Slow single core processor for small and thin laptops. A bit faster than Atom based systems but the power consumption is also higher.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3":

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.
