Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm4-3000ea

70% HP Pavilion dm4-3000ea Beats Edition review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
If you were planning on getting a pair of Beats Solo HD headphones, HP’s Pavilion dm4-3000ea Beats Edition is worth considering for its style, good speakers, comfortable ergonomics, decent battery life and unique red keyboard backlighting. However, if you already own a premium pair of cans, you can get more laptop for less elsewhere.

The only downside is the lack of value for money. Although the £899 price tag will get you a strong audio performance (plus a damn good laptop), there are more affordable models around, ablbeit minus Dr Dre's input.

HP's Pavilion range was never going to offer the same 'wow factor' as its premium Envy line and we couldn't pick out its previous dm4 Pavilion in a line up. But HP's new dm4-3000ea Pavilion Beats Edition is far from anonymous.

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.
