pc notebook HP Pavilion DM1Z review

New HP Pavilion DM1 is an evolutionary upgrade of last year and dv2 dm1z Pavilion since 2009. Stylistically, DM1 has more in common dm3. In fact, if you enter a new DM1 dm3 side last year, you will find that this 11-inch laptop is essentially a smaller version dm3. At first glance it's easy to mistake one of the dozens dm1z netbook from HP, which have appeared in recent years. Fortunately, the Pavilion DM1 is much more to offer than low-level netbook.

Build quality is consistent with what we've seen the rest of the HP Pavilion and HP Mini UMPC netbooks. The plastics used in the chassis is durable and thick enough to prevent bending or crack under pressure. The lid of the plastic screen provides adequate protection for the screen, but the center of the lid is curved under the pressure of business. The cover also has a good paint job, matt black with black pinstriping and painting done on glossy paper. This makes fingerprints less visible than what we see on the covers of notebook with glossy paint. The opening of the hinges of the screen has enough tension to hold the screen in place while still on but not enough to keep the screen in place when it takes all. The rest of the body of the laptop seems to be well designed, with minimal chassis flex and creaks are not clear plastic.
HP Pavilion dm1z port selection is pretty standard for a modern netbook or 11-inch ultraportable notebook. HP offers three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, Gigabit LAN (behind the door of rubber), and an audio connector for headphones, microphones or headsets. It also includes a SDHC card slot for downloading pictures from the camera during the trip or expanding the storage space. The only port that is missing here is the USB 3.0 port. Since we started to see more consumer notebook USB 3.0, USB 3.0 and many external hard drives on the market, we really want HP had found a way to put at least one USB 3.0 port on your notebook. Moreover, since USB 3.0 has more power than USB 2.0, USB accessories and means that mobile phones may be charged half the time needed to load more than one USB 2.0 port.
