Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv4-4270us

80% HP Pavilion dv4-4270us 14-inch Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
While the list price of the HP Pavilion dv4-4270is is over $600, it is easy to fine this system for under $600. At this price point, it offers a good deal of portability compared to the competition thanks to the 14-inch screen but it doesn't sacrifice much to achieve this. The laptop offers more memory, hard drive space and longer battery life than many similarly priced systems.

14.0":

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.

2.3 kg:

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