Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv4-2145dx

60% HP Pavilion dv4-2145dx
Source: CNet English
We tend to view 14-inch laptops as sitting in the sweet spot between portability and productivity. Whereas ultraportables are better for constant travelers and larger 15- and 16-inch laptops are better for general home use, we find that 14-inch models are a good size for your do-it-all, workhorse laptop. Given its entertainment features, relative bulk, and poor battery life, the HP Pavilion dv4-2145dx is more of a mini desktop replacement than take-everywhere midsize laptop.

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. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
M520: 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 most of the times compareable to a 2.0 Celeron Dual Core / Pentium (sometimes even to a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
