Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv9341eu
Source: Pocket Lint Archive.org version
HP has been something of a revelation in recent months, releasing a number of great notebooks that have hit different price points but have always hit their target market firmly and squarely. So it comes as something of a surprise to find the dv9341eu falls short. The look is great and considering the bargain price, so is the build quality. The body feels solid and there is plenty of support holing the screen in place. Being a big machine, the keyboard has plenty of space and there is even room for a separate numeric keypad. The keys weren’t the most solidly built we’ve seen of late and while they were comfortable to use, there was a degree of rattle as we typed. As a 17-inch machine with a widescreen Super-TFT panel, this notebook isn’t designed to be too portable, so the weight of 3.7kg shouldn’t be too hindering. The 2-hour battery life we managed to get wouldn’t be great if it weighed half as much but for using out in the garden, or on the sofa as we did, it’s more than fine. However, this machine is pitched as a desktop replacement or multimedia machine.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 is a middle class video card of the 7000 series and suited for games of the year 2006. The performance is very similar to ATI X1600 / X1700. Compared to the desktop 7600 it is clearly slower.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.
In 90nm (33W TDP) and 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.8 GHz. The TL-56 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.

17.10": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.

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.
