HP Pavilion dm4-1065dx review: HP Pavilion dm4-1065dx


Back in June, we reviewed one of the more stylish HP midrange laptops we've seen to date, the HP Pavilion dm4 . The Core i5-equipped 14-inch thin-and-light notebook included upscale design touches and a large touch pad in a sharp-looking...

Stylish design and thin body; fast Core i5 performance; strong battery life.

Lacks dedicated graphics; similarly priced laptops include Blu-ray.

HP's slick and powerful Pavilion dm4-1065dx offers great core performance, long battery life, and an eye-catching design at a very competitive price, making it a very attractive back-to-school laptop.

HP Pavilion dm4-3010tx Review


The HP Pavilion dm4-3010tx has been in the market for quite a while now, but from what we have seen, it is one of the better options. Despite being on Sandy Bridge, the performance is actually quite good. But the real cherry on the cake is the very...

Very sophisticated design, Good performance, Very good battery life, Surprisingly light

Alternatives can handle gaming better, Touchpad is not the best

HP dm4 Beats Edition Notebook Review: Down With The Beat


When you think about a company like HP, you probably don't think about innovation. They're an old company, one that now has a massive market and lots of customers to worry about losing. Common sense says they are more likely to be slow and cautious.

The configure-to-order dm4t is a slim, stylish laptop that features long battery life and entertainment-minded features. We could do without all the bloatware, however.

Stylish design, Excellent battery life, Strong productivity performance

Lots of bloatware, Integrated graphics

HP Pavilion DM4 Beats Edition (DM4-3002ea) review


A powerful 14in laptop that can handle some light gaming, but there are better 15in models

With plenty of power in both 2D and 3D applications, the DM4 is a capable 14in laptop. Despite its size, it has room for a DVD re-writer and two USB3 ports, but at £800 it’s expensive compared to superior 15in laptops from other manufacturers such as

Good, battery life, light weight, excellent all round performance and superb sound reproduction

Playing high-end games is not very pleasing experience and even the track pad is not the best in the class. Also, it lacks HDMI port

HP Pavilion DM4-3010TX definitely proves to be an ideal choice for those looking for a notebook with sturdy build quality, excellent battery life and superb performance.

"turned out to be a lemon!"


Whatever you do, do not buy HP!

There are no pros.

This is my second & last HP purchase. The laptop completely failed in all areas, it overheats, the display died & based on my own experience and that of others, I have more chance being the next president than I do getting any satisfaction from H
