Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv2500t

80% HP Pavilion dv2500t

HP delivers mobile broadband, good battery life, and multimedia amenities aplenty in an eye-catching design. HP delivers yet another strong notebook with the thin, lightweight, and feature-rich Pavilion dv2500t, a travel-friendly thin-and-light machine that gives users multimedia amenities, solid endurance, and fingerprint security. Add 3G mobile broadband to the mix and you have a productive and fun machine that will keep you connected and entertained on the go. Weighing in at 5.6 pounds and measuring just an inch thick, the Pavilion dv2500t features HP's trademark high-gloss Imprint finish with Radiance design, which adds a subtle, eye-catching pattern to the notebook. Although the aesthetic isn't as awe-inspiring as it once was--mainly because other vendors have started copying it--it's an attractive system. We liked the nicely sized touchpad with a built-in scroll strip, fingerprint reader, and quiet-click mouse buttons.

Battery life was disappointing, with the standard six-cell lasting just 2.5 hours, almost an hour shorter than average. A Pavilion dv2000t we reviewed last year ran more than 7 hours with an optional 12-cell battery. Though our testing methods have changed since then, it's a fairly safe bet that the battery upgrade is still well worth the extra $49, providing the added benefit of raising the wedge-shaped keyboard to an even more comfortable typing angle. All in all, Pavilion fans and converts alike should be happy with the dv2500t, as long as they opt for the better battery.

With the Pavilion dv2500t, HP brings Intel's latest Centrino Duo platform to its popular 14.1-inch home laptop. Aside from the new components, much remains the same: the sleek, black-and-silver case still houses most of the features that a home user will want, all at a competitive price (the base configuration costs $950). The price is so competitive, in fact, that our review unit cost at least $360 less than similarly configured systems from Dell and Gateway. At that price difference, we're willing to overlook the Pavilion dv2500t's merely average battery life--you can easily buy an additional battery with the money saved--and recommend it for home users who want an inexpensive, media-friendly laptop. We've always been fans of the HP Pavilion design, which combines sleek, rounded edges with a shiny (though somewhat fingerprint-prone) black-and-silver finish.

HP dv6500t Review
Source: English
The Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv2500t is on the verge of cutting-edge notebook technology at the moment. It's one of the most popular laptops since the inception of the Santa Rosa platform, being the evident successor to the well-received dv2000t. I've been holding out to buy a Santa Rosa notebook for the new Nvidia GPUs that support DirectX 10 because integrated graphics just don't cut it for me. Even after stalking my notebook via FedEx's tracking system and agonizing over the fact that it arrived at my city's distribution center on Friday night, but knowing that I would not get the notebook until Monday morning, I was very impressed with HP's speedy build time. My notebook was ordered on June 6th and originally set to ship on June 20th, but to my surprise the big conglomerate shipped my notebook straight from Shanghai on June 15th. That made it five days early and does wonders for customer satisfaction.

HP dv2500t Review
Source: English
The DV2500t is a good solid successor to the previous DV2000t series laptop. The difference is not night and day, but incremental in most areas. I still feel as though the DV2500t gives you the best bang for your buck, with good build quality, reliability, and the included standard features. People could try to compare Lenovo or even HP’s NC series, but this is a consumer laptop, meant for the average user, and it does very well for its intended target.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7100: Entry level to mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
