Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv3000

80% The HP Pavilion dv3000 (Intel Santa Rosa)
Source: Hardware Zone English
Light and small enough for reasonable portability, yet powerful enough for most usage needs, the HP Pavilion dv3000 is an entertainment laptop that delivers on many verticals. Based on its performance, the dv3000 is a workhorse of a laptop that's quite comparable to the other machines that we based our performance comparisons on such as Dell's XPS M1330, though to be fair it has been some time since we reviewed the M1330 so the improved capabilities on the HP notebook were expected. Whether you use it as an entertainment device or something for work, the dv3000 is good enough for almost everything, with some exceptions of course.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS: NVidia GeForce 8400M GS is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7400 for laptops and technologically a slower 8400M GT video card (because of the smaller 64 Bit memory bus).

 

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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.


T9300:

The T9300 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and similar to the T9400 but with a lower FSB.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

HP reviews


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
