4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good size, easy upgrading, good performance, excellent speakers.

I put 8GB of RAM and SSD drive in 5 minutes.

Cons: Terrible touchpad, base doesn't seem to snap all the way back on after upgrading, can be sluggish depending on what you're doing (almost seemed like it was the mouse). A little hard to get all the HP software (power management) installed after doing a fresh install of Windows 7 x64.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a replacement for a SU7300 based laptop. It performs similarly with better graphic capabilities. The touch pad is terrible, which does bring down the whole computing experience, but with an external mouse, it's fine.

5 out of 5 eggsPleasantly surprised

Pros: Size, screen, keyboard

Cons: Bloatware

Other Thoughts: Usually buy/build with power/performance/gaming uses in mind. But I need something small to take on a trip to access the internet etc. After looking at netbooks I fel I would be disappointed witn their lack of 'power". On day one I had this on for 9 hours straight running updates etc. and was impressed with how fast it really is. Will not be disappointed. By the way, what fan noise?

3 out of 5 eggsJury is out

Pros: Tiny, light

Cons: Mouse extremely unresponsive, to the point where without using an external mouse it was unusable.

Other Thoughts: I was so excited when I opened the box thinking this would be better than an android tab, however I could barely make the mouse move at all. It would stall and skip across my screen. After spending two hours on the phone with hp tech support, I returned it to newegg for replacement, as i was reminded it is a non returnable item. I only hope the first one was a lemon, but after seeing the built in mouse touchscreen I fear it is a design flaw.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is NOT a netbook

Pros: Excellent performance given the price and form factor.

The Fusion APU performs admirably in games, running Portal 2 at native resolution and medium-high settings at around 30 FPS. Team Fortress 2 runs very smooth at medium settings, native resolution, and games like the original Portal are but a breeze upon the cheek of the Fusion APU.

1080p content streams smoothly, as do 1080p clips. 7zip performance was sub-par but not terrible at 10-25mb/s, and the same can be said of video and music encoding. Photoshop performs well, with the discrete-class graphics having it hum along with a lot of the visual bells and whistles like animated zoom.

Battery life is excellent - I managed 4-5 hours with the screen set a medium, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off, running applications like OneNote, Word, and a few 2D games like Touhou 12.3. Games like Portal 2 and HD movies will definitely toll the battery more. However, it's not hard to imagine getting 6 or 7 hours if one is very power-conscious.

Cons: Fan can get a bit loud. While it is not normally an issue - the ambient noise in a room will typically drown it out - it kicks up a notch during gaming or HD movie viewing. Even then, I don't normally notice it unless I'm in a particularly quiet room, though.

Tons of useless pre-loaded software. Some of it is useful, like Fences Pro, but be prepared to spend the first hour or three cleaning out the stuff you don't want. Of course, the same can be said of any laptop, but I feel HP has it particularly bad.

Cover and bottom are nice and smooth, but smoothness <i>will</i> attract fingerprints and smears of all sorts. The same can be said of the glossy screen, though the keyboard does not suffer from this.

Other Thoughts: This is definitely not a netbook.

Okay, it may look like a netbook at first, but once you get past the small form factor and light weight, you realize that this laptop can get work done. Netbooks are laptops with just enough performance to access the web and do basic tasks. The Fusion APU, option to upgrade to 8Gb RAM and standard 7200RPM HDD have convinced me that this is most certainly not a netbook.

While it may still pale in comparison with i5 ultraportables with discrete graphics, the price/performance ratio of the dm1 passes the standard and keeps running. Include the power/performance balance of the Fusion APU that does the same, and you have a winning formula.

This is not the ultimate laptop. It will not run Crysis, nor will you get a stellar Folding@Home score with it. It is, however, an excellent performer, considering the form factor, weight, and price, and anybody looking for a laptop in this size should definitely give the dm1 serious consideration.

5 out of 5 eggsHP dm1

Pros: ordered one day [standard 3 day], came in the next day. <3 newegg.

Cons: didn't come in the same day when i requested standard 3 day.

Other Thoughts: my only concern was the fan being "loud" don't really find that to be problem. also apparently an update to the bios fixes that. battery life is less than 9 hours, more than 6 hours for sure.

5 out of 5 eggsIt sold out for a reason

Pros: -Sleek, attractive form factor
-The HD6310 can handle games pretty well (FPS' like STALKER run smoothly on low-moderate settings, and newer titles should run on low settings)
-The keyboard is comfortable and feels sturdy (no flex)
-The speakers are clear and loud
-There is only one vent on the computer's left side. That one vent does its job handily and the computer never gets very hot, even while gaming.
-Fast HDD

Cons: -The track pad is nicer than most, but it's easy to miss-click, and two-finger scrolling can get laggy
-The power adapter is straight, rather than L-shaped. This makes it harder to move the computer around while its plugged in.
-The processor has an advantage over Atom 2, but it's still averaging at about 60% usage while browsing non-flash based websites etc.
-The battery life isn't as great as I hoped (it obviously wasn't going to be the promised 9 hours, but c'mon, I've been getting about 5 hrs on power saver while reading PDF's)

Other Thoughts: The display's viewing angle is not so great, but if you're in public (this is an ultraportable after all) it's like having a privacy filter on the screen...for free!

4 out of 5 eggsThe Netbook Done Right

Pros: This has the hip new dual core e-350 fusion chip "APU" chip from AMD. It beats the Atom hands down. Battery life is great and not too far from what the advertised runtime is. While doing regular office-type work it doesn't feel like I'm using a netbook, I feel like I'm using a regular laptop. I haven't seen much mention of this, but the 11" keyboard size is great for my fingers. I'm constantly mistyping on my older, smaller atom netbook. Additionally, video playback of h.264 is seamless. A lot of my video is AVHCD 1080 60 fps from my DSLR and it plays back flawlessly even when played back on a larger screen over HDMI (or whatever). The impressive thing is that Core2 desktop at work can't even handle these 60fps vids!

Cons: For truly CPU-bound tasks (video encoding for example) that don't leverage the graphics card, it can run a little slower than you'd like, but it is still not bad. Hey, it is a netbook that can run all day, so should you complain? The only real complaint might be that being the hot new netbook on the block, it is a little pricey. When we got ours I was so pleased anyway.

Other Thoughts: There was a complaint earlier about the fan controls. There is a program for Windows 7 that does a pretty good. I haven't put Linux on there, but I was tempted to try Android on it to be hip. I don't know what kind of OS fan controls exist for those OS options.

5 out of 5 eggsBest netbook in its class

Pros: Everything about this laptop is excellent:
AMD E-350 Fusion APU that has smooth 1080p video playback
Radeon 6310 Graphics
Excellent quality and loud Altec Lansing speakers
Really sleek design that isn't as much of a fingerprint magnet as its predecessors, the dv2 etc.
7200 RPM hard drive, unlike many others that only have 5400RPM.
Built-in bluetooth and 802.11n
Windows 7 Home Premium (don't be fooled into buying a netbook that only uses Win7 starter)
1366 x 768 resolution
battery life that seems to be in the range of 5-7 hours
Super lightweight and portable at only 3.5lb
It's also nice that they hide the LAN port as most people won't be using anything other than wireless for a device like this.
The island style keyboard is one of the nicest I have ever typed on.
The textured mousepad is also comfortable to use and can be easily disabled by double-tapping the small circle in the top-left corner. it also has support for multitouch.

Cons: This is about $100 overpriced. It is cheapest to buy it direct from HP for $450 with this configuration, so hopefully the price will come down.
No USB 3.0, only 1 3.5mm jack.
It would be nice of the keyboard was backlit, but that is not something you find for laptops in this price range, the sony model will offer it, but will also be substantially more expensive.
Also, it would be nice if they included a USB dvd drive like they did with the original dv2, but not much of a con since I will be using that one anyway and external DVD drives are cheap at around $30.

Other Thoughts: This is essentially the nicest netbook out there for under $450 in terms of performance, stability, portability, and design.
You may be tempted to wait for the Asus 1215b or the MSI Wind U270 for their USB3.0, but I find this one to have a much sleeker design than either of those and its really easy to upgrade the harddrive etc with how the bottom slides off so easily. Also, the Asus 1215B will be the same price with only half the RAM, and my guess is the speakers won't be quite as loud as these. This will be an extremely nice upgrade from my HP dv2-1030us. This is absolutely perfect for a student and offers so much more power and flexibility than with a $500+ tablet. I've had my eyes on this for months, and have patiently waited for other companies to release better netbooks/ultraportables using the new E-350 APU, but none of them quite beat HP's feature-rich package.
