Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv3-2050ea
Source: Trusted Reviews
Recently we took our first look at the HP Pavilion dv3 range in the shape of the dv3-2055ea. We went away very impressed, particularly due to the excellent battery life, massive 500GB hard drive and generous features on offer given the £750 price. Now we're looking at its slightly cheaper cousin, the dv3-2050ea. At £699.99 online it's only £50 cheaper, so the question is whether it's £50 worth saving, or £50 worth spending. Just like its more expensive cousin, the HP Pavilion dv3-2050ea is a very accomplished and well featured laptop. Performance is good, without being mind blowing, while battery life is excellent. However, it doesn't quite represent enough of a discount over its stable mate or enough extra value over the Samsung Q320 to earn an award.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce G 105M: Higher clocked 9300M GS and therefore a bit faster. Still manufactured in 65nm. Supports Hybrid-SLI with HybridPower and GeForceBoost (in conjunction with the right Nvidia chipset). Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
Entry class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
