The HP Pavilion dm4-1060us ($849.98 list) is covered in aluminum metal and ranks as one of the lightest, most powerful 14-inch laptops  in the market. In addition, there are also multiple configurations of the dm4, ones that have switching graphics—the HP Pavilion dm4-1063cl ($899 list, )—or a faster Intel Core i5 processor and bigger battery—the HP Pavilion dm4 ($905 direct, ). This particular version, the dm4-1060us, available at Staples, is the cheapest of the three, opting for integrated graphics only and a low-end Core i5 processor. What all three have in common, though, is a multitouch touchpad that has a mind of its own.

Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
