Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm4-2180us

80% HP Pavilion dm4-2180us (Office Depot)
Source: PC Mag English
The HP Pavilion dm4-2180us is a great all-around performer and has added features, like a fingerprint reader and WiDi 2.0 that make it well worth its price. However, the Asus U46E-BAL5 has more to give— and not only in hard drive space. Travelers will get much needed use out of the WiMAX broadband on the Asus, and USB 3.0 will help transferring data at faster speeds than USB 2.0 can offer. But if you have no use for advanced wireless features, then the Editors' Choice Dell Inspiron 14z has a backlit keyboard, USB 3.0, and a battery life that's hard to beat.

14.0": 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 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.
