Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv3000
Best Buy listened to its customers and then teamed up with HP to create the Pavilion dv3510nr, one of the big box store's first Blue Label laptops. This sleek-yet-loaded 13-inch laptop deserves a blue ribbon, too, for its all-around excellence and value.

Overall, the $1,099 HP Pavilion dv3510nr is a sleek and powerful 13-inch notebook. The identically priced 14-inch Toshiba E105—the other laptop that launched the Blue Label program that includes a backlit keyboard—offers longer battery life (4:36 vs. 3:41) and a bigger 14-inch screen in a package that weighs about the same as the dv3510nr. However, the HP’s design is more attractive, and it offers discrete graphics and a better keyboard. If you can live with its below-average endurance, the dv3510nr is a very good thin-and-light multimedia machine.

NVIDIA GeForce 9300M G: Enhanced 8400M GS chip, which is manufactured in 65nm and shows slightly better performance due to a few minor optimizations.
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.
Entry level Core 2 Duo processor with 3 MB Level 2 Cache and due to the 25 Watt TDP also suited for 13" laptops.

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.
