The current HP Pavilion dm1z or dm1 is an updated version to its predecessors – the dm1z (last year’s model) and dv2 (2009). At a glance, you will mistakenly identify dm1z as somewhat similar to the dozens of models being released by HP. But the big difference is that it has more to give to it’s users in contrast with those existing low-performance and budget-priced netbooks.
When it comes to it’s build, well, it is of top quality as what other HP Pavilion models do have. It is ultra portable and durable. The netbook’s chassis is thick and strong enough to prevent the flex to crack due to pressure.
Are you afraid to see finger prints swirling over your netbook? With dm1, the painting job they did on it is quite remarkable – its matte black with black pinstripping all done using glossy paint. Thus, this will make fingerprint smudges almost difficult to notice.
When it comes to performance, dm1 offers far more than what it looks like especially at its entry level price of about $449. There is no way you can get a netbook at this price that can perform better than this.
Thanks to AMD Fusion technology, HP has made this netbook a must try especially for those budget conscious individuals out there.
