Based on the price of the HP DM1, we really can’t argue anything other than that fact that its probably one of the best values for your money. At that price, there are still netbooks out there that are more expensive and have smaller screens, slower processors, and lack things like HDMI and a full keyboard. The HP DM1 is the perfect value proposition, for $399 you quite literally get a computer that is basically untouchable at that price. HP has done a great job of fitting things that people want in both a netbook and a laptop into the DM1. It fills that much needed gap between netbooks and laptops in both price and performance.Conclusion
We took this little laptop with us everywhere we went. Its gone on transatlantic flights, braved the desert, the mountains, hotel rooms, it’s followed us to countless conferences and events. Not a single time did this laptop fail us when we needed it most. It allowed us to make our deadlines and upload pictures and video when we otherwise would’ve either been out of battery or out of luck. . Not to mention that we basically used this laptop as storage for all of our photos and it became a photographer’s best friend. We can safely say that this laptop would be perfect for the business person on the go as well as the college student that loves to watch movies and still get work done Based on what we’ve found; it has just the right amount of CPU power for what the average user would need. The power efficiency of the Brazos platform combined with its high definition video prowess enable the HP DM1 to effectively be what netbooks (with atom processors) should’ve been.
As a result of our review and findings, we give the HP DM1 our Editor’s Choice for Mainstream as a result of both being a quality product with a lot of great technology behind it as well as being a great value. In reality, we could give it three awards as it would win both the innovation and value awards for mainstream as well.
