Reviews for the HP Pavilion dm4-2070us

70% HP Pavilion dm4-2070us

Aside from its battery life, the HP Pavilion dm4-2070us is an acceptable, workable choice for a low-end mainstream laptop in practically every way. If you want to fine-tune your shopping, the less-expensive Asus U46E-BAL5 will give you more polish; if you feel you need even more flexibility away from a power outlet, the Samsung QX411-W01 costs a bit more but is a better way to go. But if you're looking for a general-purpose blend of functionality, the dm4-2070us can provide it—along with a nice extra dash of shiny visual flair.

HP Pavilion dm4x Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English version
Students should take a close look at the HP dm4x laptop as an option for use as an important academic tool. It’s got everything you need for your academic computing needs and then some nice extras. First of all the design is very appealing so fashion conscious students will approve. It’s not just a pretty face though, the dm4x is built with sturdy metal materials and beneath the hood the second generation Intel Core i5 processor will provide more than enough power to tackle multi-tasking, frequent application switching and smooth video playback. An option for dedicated graphics with 1GB of memory can make the dm4x a good choice for engineering students as well. Most importantly for students this laptop is very portable, weighing in at 4.3lbs, and the battery life of about 6 hours on a standard battery is enough to last through a few lectures without being plugged in. If you need more battery life there are battery upgrade options, something you don’t get with other laptops such as the Apple MacBook Pro. Finally, the price in the mid $700’s is a very good one for what you get with the dm4x. Getting the most features and best quality for a laptop you hope will last you four years of college is a tough buying decision, the HP Pavilion dm4x passes the test for meeting student needs in a laptop and providing quality with value so it should certainly be on your shortlist of laptops to consider with this important buying decision.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
