Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv5z

70% HP Dv5z 1001x

Well – it’s a good looker, if you like neutral and shiny. It does carry a lot of useful multimedia features. It has the oomph for average users and will scale well for feature sets with it’s eSATA, HDMI, expresscard and Blu-Ray drive options. However, this top of the line (current) cpu didn’t leave me impressed, and neither did the battery life, NOR the graphics option. At this price point, it’s hard for me to argue for it except for the reasons just stated – however, if you don’t absolutely need a dedicated docking port, blu-ray drive, TvTuner, eSATA and two headphone outputs…you could look elsewhere and get a little more performance. The features rock, the performance doesn’t. Other than that – if you’re not concerned about absolutely bleeding edge, don’t mind a mini-heater most times, and need a feature rich laptop – this model is a catch.

HP Pavilion dv5z Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
As I mentioned in our First Look, there are a lot of reasons to be excited about this notebook. First, we're just glad to see HP release a new notebook chassis design since they were using the same old dv6000 series design for several years. More importantly, we're in complete awe over the performance of the integrated graphics on this machine. Sure, you can get better gaming performance if you spend more money for a notebook with a good dedicated graphics card, but you would have to purchase a mid-range or high performance dedicated card to surpass the performance of the integrated graphics in the dv5z. For the first time consumers shopping for a budget notebook don't have to sacrifice performance in order to have a low-cost laptop. In the end, the HP Pavilion dv5z left me more than a little frustrated. The simple reality is that this budget notebook packs the best integrated graphics solution we've ever seen inside its sleek chassis. However, battery life was far too limiting. In fact, this notebook would have received an Editor's Choice Award if it could have managed at least 3 hours of battery life ... but 2 hours and 22 minutes is just unacceptable.

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem. 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.
AMD Turion X2 Ultra: The AMD Turion X2 Ultra is part of the Puma platform and a mixture of the old K9 core (form the Turion 64 X2) and some parts of the K10 architecture (memorycontroller, hypertransport, crossbar switch from the Phenom). Because of the increased L2 cache ("Ultra" CPUs) and the improved memory controller, the performance increased a bit. Still a similar clocked Core 2 Duo is noticably faster.
ZM-80:
Mixture out of two K8 based cores and K10 uncores (e.g. memory controller). Offers improved power saving functions compared to older Turion CPUs but still not as good and fast as a Core 2 Duo. The ZM-80 is the slowest CPU of the ZM series and a entry level CPU in 2008.
