Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv4-2045dx

72% HP Pavilion dv4-2045dx
Source: CNet English
The HP Pavilion dv4-2045dx offers more multitasking muscle than many of the other mainstream budget retail laptops we've recently reviewed. Helped by a 7,200rpm hard drive (most in this sub-$600 class use slower 5,400rpm drives) and 4GB of memory, the AMD Turion II Dual-Core M500 processor held its own against the Intel-based competition in our lab tests and in real-world use. As long as you're not looking for extremely long battery life, the HP Pavilion dv4-2045dx is a well-rounded mainstream budget laptop with above average looks and performance.

Comment

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).

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

M500:

Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core. The performance should be compareable to a 2.0 Celeron Dual Core / Pentium.

14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
