Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv2-1030us

50% HP Pavilion dv2-1030us (Staples)
Source: PC Mag English
AMD made it clear that it had no desire to compete in the netbook space and that it would rather put its money on the lightweight and inexpensive HP Pavilion dv2 (1030-us) to fill the void between netbooks and expensive ultraportables. The dv2 had the budget ultraportable space all to itself—at least for a brief period—until Intel's CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors came in and completely rained on HP and AMD's parade. As the netbook category grows and Intel's consumer ultra-low voltage class rolls in, HP's ultraportable Pavilion dv2-1030us is being pushed out of the game faster than it came in.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410: Entry level dedicated GPU from AMD which supports only PCI-E 1.1 (3430 and upwards support PCI-E 2.0). Technically a slower clocked HD 3430/3450.

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

MV-40: Slow single core processor for small and thin laptops. A bit faster than Atom based systems but the power consumption is also higher.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
