Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv5-1110em
A stylish multimedia laptop, but everyday performance could be stronger. HP's Pavilion range is aimed at home users, with a mix of stylish, feature-packed laptops available. The Pavilion dv5- 1110em is one such laptop and offers great value for money. Packed with features, the HP Pavilion dv5-1110em may lack the all-out performance of its Intel-based rivals, but it's still a desirable and impressive laptop. That it also includes a Blu-ray drive at such a competitive price is a bonus, helping to offer great value for money.

HP’s Pavilion dv5-1110em is the ideal laptop for the recession, cramming in loads of features at a bargain basement price. Billed as an Entertainment Notebook PC, the dv5 comes with an integrated Blu-ray optical drive - a surprise at this price. At a touch over £500, it’s amazing just how much the Pavilion dv5-1101em has to offer. There are few cheaper machines featuring Blu-ray drives, and it also provides reasonable multimedia performance. Along with the excellent build quality and comfort, it’s easy to recommend this laptop. Only the choice of processor lets it down - we found it slower than equivalent Intel-based machines, and the battery life is also poor. That said, unless you’re going to be carrying out the most processor-intensive tasks, or need a laptop for long-term travel, it’s a price well worth paying.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450: Successor of the HD 2400 produced in 55nm (therefore with a faster clockspeed) and with DirectX 10.1 support. Avivo HD video support enables the gpu to decode HD videos. For modest casual gamers suited (demanding games run only in very low settings).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
AMD Turion X2: The Turion X2 (without 64) is based on the Turion X2 Ultra, but has only 1024 MB L2 Cache and is therefore slower (performance compareable to the old Turion 64 X2). Because of new parts from the K10 architecture, the CPU should be more energy efficient.
Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).
