Build and Design
HP Pavilion dm3 updated the series last year with a new low voltage Intel Core i3 and a fresh design with a new cooling system designed to make the laptop more “friendly back.” This is not only 13-inch laptop coolerf touch, but it looks cooler than the previous generation dm3. Before long the laptop has become the trendsetter for the line of HP consumer notebooks like the HP Pavilion dm1z and HP Mini line of netbooks are designed with a similar appearance.
Build quality is on par with what we’ve seen from the rest of the HP Pavilion and HP Mini netbooks. The plastics used in the chassis are durable and thick enough to prevent bending or cracking under pressure. The lid of the plastic screen does a good job protecting the screen, but the center of the lid is folded in under firm pressure. The cover has a rubbery matte black paint job is ideal to avoid fingerprints appearing on the glossy notebooks. The hinges of the screen provides enough tension to keep the screen in place, but are loose enough so you can open the laptop with one hand.
HP decided to give the new dm3 a clean look, with two access panels without screws in the bottom of the notebook. Simply remove the battery and slide the release to upgrade the RAM or swap hard disk. This is a really great idea, not only to make upgrades easier, but has the additional security measure which required removing the power cord before messing with internal components (something you should do anyway) .
