Oh and the dvd drive is a seperate external one

No dedicated graphic card. Why spend so much on so little?

Not actually sure how good this is but looks like a dedicated GPU to me?

I posted this back in December, got mine from HP. My Quidco has just cleared meaning I paid £438 after cashback.

In the main I'm happy with this notebook apart from on thing- HP at the time of buying were saying this had a ten hour battery life (well, "upto" ten hours)

Using it just for web surfing, without any other program running, the screen set to about 75%, & bluetooth turned off, the best I can get is only 3 hours.
:x

I'm really disappointed with that, tbh, if I had known that at the time of ordering, I wouldn't have got one.
Apart from the battery, its a very nice capable notebook, but as I had been using an NC10 & getting twice the battery life, I'm sorry that I spent so much on one of these.

One other thing- god knows why, but there is no battery meter on this notebook, I installed BatteryBar Free
:)

I have several Pavillion Laptops and wouldnt buy anything else now (apart from a Vaio).

Battery life is always pants but you get so much more on them like Lightscribe drives etc.

I really like the look of these and they seem nice to use, but the AMD Neo processor really puts me off, which is a shame as otherwise I'd happily swap my MacBook for one.

Why? I have this notebook it is quiet very powerful (running 64bit Windows 7 with the 4GB memory) for my mobile needs and is far more stable than even my Windows XP work notebook it replaced. I have many applications open all the time (Full Windows 2007 suite including Visio and Project) and the maximum resources used has only every gone to around 2.5GB. You can actually just close the lid and it suspends properly which was always hit and miss before.Apart from the glossy nature I do also really nice like the 13.3 inch screen (LED) and size as is is just about right for mobility too as the 15" ones are far too bulky. The USB CD drive is great too as it can be used with my Netbook saving some cost (as well as weight).

All in all a good buy at this price.

The graphics are integrated but very good all the same, at least in terms of video playback, 1080p being a breeze.

THe laptop is in a very nice light and small chassis and it comes with a very good screen. I'd say £450 was about right, not cracking but certainly great value.

Why?


Because the CPU simply isn't powerful enough.

My MacBook has the Core 2 Duo T8100. In the passmark benchmark it scores 1341, which is only OK and not amazingly fast. This HP on the other hand with its L335 scores 876, which is notably lower.

You have misread my post. I already have a MacBook. I'm bored of it. I want a new laptop to replace it. This would be ideal, if it did not have such a crap CPU.

Hot.. TrustedReviews gave good marks for performance, 8/10

Make the warranty last for 3 years for an additional £67.29:

I would suggest that buying a new laptop because your 'bored' with the one you have is a bit daft. If it works and copes with your needs, what's the problem? If your married, guess your partner is nervous - the clock is ticking for them!

I'm interested in the DM3, because I want something portable, screen-size of around 13.3'', decent power, and good value, and good battery-life.

Most of the 'official' review-sites give the battery-life a good rating. But I keep hearing that it isn't true. Could somebody possibly explain the discrepancy to me? Are the official reviews doctored?

Also, what other laptops would you recommend? I have looked at the DM3, the Dell13z/1310, and a few toshibas. How about the Acer 1410?

Feeling lost in a minefield of small, affordable, laptops!
