HP announced the new HP Pavilion dm4 today along with many other Pavilion refreshes. The HP dm4 is a mix of the HP dv4 and the dm3, which combines the new pavilion features with a 14″ display to become HP’s newest consumer portable notebook model.
The dm4 is a light and thin notebook that comes with a DVD drive, 640 GB hard drive and optional GPS, Bluetooth and WWAN customizations. The HP dm4 also includes a new full-metal chassis with an etched pattern design and island style keyboard. The keyboard offers more spacing for improved usability and a dedicated F-Row for function keys like volume and brightness.
The HP Pavilion dm4 weighs 4.4 lbs. and offers ultra portability at less than an inch thick and a 6.5 hour battery life. This notebook uses Intel dual core standard voltage processors, such as Intel Core i5, and comes with the option for an ATI mainstream discrete graphics card. The improvement on dm4 model over dm3 is that dm4 comes with better sound thanks to Dolby audio sound and Altec Lansing speakers. The dm4 provides a great mix of mobility, performance and affordability that is hard for many companies to hit.
The HP Pavilion dm4 also includes an HP TrueVision Webcam for better performance in low light situations and HP QuickWeb, which will give users access to the Web without booting up Windows.
The fingerprint reader built into the brushed aluminum HP dm4 uses the new HP SimplePass technology to allow users to log onto nearly any secure website, such as Gmail or Facebook, with the swipe of a finger. This will be especially helpful for users who have created a strong password and have trouble remembering it.
The HP Pavilion dm4 will be available starting May 19th with configurations beginning at $729.
