To begin with, this is a laptop to watch movies in as its 14-inch high definition LED (though not wide enough when comparing with other laptops) screen should deliver the goods, especially since it has Intel HD3000 graphics. And with the HD port you can stream content from the laptop to your HD TV to watch in high definition clarity. That's certainly a great feature you can exploit to make presentations or watch movies or videos with your family.
But this sub-4.5 pound laptop isn't about lightweight portability alone. HP has packed performance too with 6GB DDR3 memory and powered by Intel Core i5-2410M 2.3GHz processor. Pavilion DM4 also features a 640GB hard disk. So you have a laptop that can be easily carried around but has dynamite performance and tons of storage capacity. You have consistent performance for all your vital tasks and more features to have great fun.
Another feature contributing to its portability is the battery that provides nearly 7 hours of backup! So use it, wherever you can, without always looking around for a plug point.
And if all that wasn't enough, this no-nonsense laptop also offers a Fingerprint Reader! This offers a great leap forward in security. Somewhat like the Face Recognition feature in some Dell laptops, Pavilion dm4-2070us stores your fingerprints and your fingers serve as the password as you awaken the screen after leaving the laptop without working on it for some time. While others may be able to use it, they can't access the important files. Now you can leave your laptop open and come back without finding it tampered.
As a portable and lightweight no-frills entertainment as well as work laptop, HP Pavilion dm4 really does impress. But there are more features on offer too, such as the electronic media reader that can transfer details about other equipment such as your camera; audio from you mp3 as well as your SD card information. Bluetooth wireless networking is also offered.
HP Pavilion dm 4 range of laptops come with some exclusive software such as HP MediaSmart that offers you a great multimedia experience, while HP QuickWeb helps you discover some of the most valuable websites easily. The most important exclusive HP software here is undoubtedly the HP ProtectSmart that offers safety of your hard disk by forestalling loss of data that may arise out of various reasons.
The brushed aluminum lid and steel chassis do look the part and the keyboard is well designed with a large clickpad with convenience in mind. Price in India for HP Pavilion dm 4 range of laptops starts at Rs. 46,800. HP advertises DM 4 laptops as high performance entertainment notebooks and we can't disagree.
