Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm4-1063cl

70% HP Pavilion dm4-1063cl
Source: PC Mag English
Metals are the favored materials when it comes to laptop design, and HP is not shy about using them. Its entire line of laptops (netbooks not included) will be updated with this material by the time summer hits, starting with the HP Pavilion dm4-1063cl ($899 list). It's identical to the Pavilion dm4 ($905 direct, ) in looks and its featherweight characteristics. Of the two, the dm4-1063cl, available at Costco, is less battery efficient, although you get a bigger hard drive and gaming benefits (with switchable graphics) that should make up for the difference.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450: Entry level DirectX 11 graphics card with a similar clock speed (and performance) as the HD 4570 but at a lower power consumption.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). 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.
