HP Pavilion DM1 in the Flesh and on Windows 8

Written by | Gadgets


Here’s an interesting netbook, the HP Pavilion DM1. I said “interesting” because it’s a netbook running Windows 8 which is a first for me and probably not the last.

The original HP Pavilion DM1 was introduced earlier this year that comes with a dual-core AMD E-450 processor, a generous 4GB of RAM and running Windows 7 Starter. While the HP Pavilion DM1 that’s running Windows 8 uses AMD Dual-Core Processor E2-1800 and AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7300 GPU. 4GB RAM and a 11.6″ diagonal HD BrightView LED Display with 1366 x 768 screen resolution, the specs that standout is the audio which is powered by Beats Audio.

HP Pavilion DM1 Specs:

  • Windows 8
  • 11.6″ diagonal High Definition HP BrightView LED Display (1366 x 768)
  • Audio: Beats Audio
  • AMD Dual-Core Processor E2-1800 + AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7300 Series Discrete-Class Graphics
  • 4GB DDR3 RAM
  • HP TrueVision Webcam with integrated digital microphone
  • 320GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
  • 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN
  • 802.11b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth(R)
  • 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
  • Ports: 3x USB, 1x HDMI, 1x RJ45, 1x VGA
  • Standard QWERTY (chick-let) Keyboard
  • Dimension: 11.49 x 8.46 x 1.26 in

Here are some more photos:
The specs is far better than the HP Mini 110 that I reviewed a couple of years back and the price is comparable to that of the HP Mini 110 which is SAR 1,500 or around $400. We all know that netbooks are a dying breed and to see a netbook running Windows 8 is a sign that we’ll be seeing them hang around a bit longer. So be back for my full review.
