There's something about a 13" notebook with a 9 hour battery life that calls to mind true love in notebook form, and that's what I thought I had encountered when I first read Laptop magazine's review of the HP Pavilion dm3t, but no love is without fault and the trackpad of the new dm3t changes it from love at first sight to try before you buy.
Laptop Magazine just posted their full review of the HP ProBook 5310, HPâ€™s newest small business notebook, and boy are they impressed. This â€œground breaking systemâ€, earns an Editorsâ€™ Choice award from Laptop Magazine by combining an affordable price, blazing fast performance and a high build quality.
The HP Mini 311 is one of the first netbooks out that really blurs the line between netbook and full featured notebook, thanks to its NVIDIA ION GPU. That's not all, with an impressive screen and new features coming with Windows 7 and Flash 10.1 the Mini 311 may actually be a netbook with enough power to be the primary PC for average users.
We've gathered up the HP Mini 311 reviews and hands on experiences to give you a good look at what you can expect from the little powerhouse.
If you've been paying attention to commercials lately you may have noticed that many cell phone companies are now selling netbooks, small cheap computers, with a high speed data connection at a subsidized price just like their phones.
Given all the cool things that Bill Kurtis can do with the internet on his AT&T netbook you might be tempted to get one of your own and use its 3g connection instead of paying for highspeed from your cable company but before you do that you better read the rest of this post.
Last night on the catwalk of New Yorkâ€™s Fashion Week at Bryant Park, Vivienne Tam and HP debuted the new HP Vivienne Tam Digital Clutch. The new clutch which complements Tam's spring line of clothes has a champagne gold background with butterflies emblazoned across the front.
HP will offer free upgrades to Microsoft Windows 7 to anyone who purchases an HP notebook between now and October 22. HP customers who register for the program will receive a free upgrade copy of Windows 7 and an upgrade utility disc shortly after it's released this fall.
LaptopMag.com did a full review of the new Mini 110 and found that HP seems to have addressed some of the issues lacking in the Mini 1000 but not without compromise. The Mini 110 has a VGA port, matte antiglare screen, and three USB ports. But it's slightly thicker and heavier than HP's first consumer netbook.
HP's unveiled the Pavilion dv3t, a 13" notebook that starts at $799 before any discounts or incentives. The dv3t is built for mainstream consumers and can be customized to fit the needs of most students and home users. It can be configured with NVIDIA graphics, up to 8GB of RAM and a Blu-ray Disc drive.
I had the opportunity to hang out with Vivienne Tam and a group of female bloggers in New York during fashion week. On Wednesday night we went to Vivienne Tam's fall season preview at her boutique in SoHo. The Peony flower was her inspiration for her entire spring line, which extended all the way from her dresses to the Mini 1000 special edition that I'm blogging from this week.
I'm a big fan of the HP Mini 1000 and it earned our first Editor's Choice award, but the quality of its built-in webcam is a weak point. The Mini 2140 has a similarly spec'd webcam, but it delivers a dramatically better image than the one found in the Mini 1000.
HP's offering $500 off Pavilion notebooks configured at $1,399 or more for a limited time. To take advantage of this offer, visit HP.com, configure your notebook to at least $1,399 (before discount) and enter coupon code NB4345 at checkout.
Art-inspired notebook designs are becoming more popular as consumers view their gadgets as truly personal. AMD, HP, and MTV reached out to the community and asked them for their art-inspired designs and received almost 17,000 entries. I grabbed on video the top designs from 4 different continents. I wish I were this creative.
HP's new Pavilion dv6t is a 16-inch entertainment notebook that's relatively affordable. Launched at CES 2009, the dv6t offers a bigger display than you'll find in the dv5 and adds a number pad. The dv6t is available now from $679.99.
Today I upgraded my Mini 1000's memory from 1GB to 2GB in less than 20 seconds and I didn't even need to use a screw driver. Upgrading RAM on a notebook is usually a pretty simple task for experienced computer users, but I don't see how HP could've made this any easier on the Mini 1000. Check out this video to see what I mean.
A lot of netbooks look and feel like toys, but HPâ€™s blessed the Mini 1000 with design cues borrowed from its Pavilion notebooks, making it the best looking netbook to date. This Mini 1000 is an excellent choice for anyone that understands the limitations of a netbook, likes the idea of simplicity and favors style over having a couple of extra ports and plugs.
