This is an extremely nice laptop, easy 5 stars. I needed a desktop replacement since my desktop was completely destroyed due to a electrical fire, this is why I chose a i5 over a i3 CPU and 14inch over 13.3 inch. I immediately installed an Intel SSD 80GB in this HP which I recovered from my desktop, so boot-ups and loading apps is fast!. I'm a big fan of SSDs and highly recommend for speed and low power. Over all I'm extremely pleased with this notebook, and would highly recommend if you need something fast and close to desktop power. I purchased this at a local store because I had a $400 in-store credit. Buying on Amazon is a no-brainer which saves approx $100-150.

-Doesn't look cheap, has extremely nice aluminum/silver surface to give professional look. Easily looks like $800-1000+ laptop, which was important for me.
-i5 with Dual-Core and HT = 4 CPUS showing in task manager, WEI for CPU 6.9!!! My desktop which had an Intel Q9650 pure Quad Core was 7.3 WEI. I did not expect this mobile i5 CPU score to be this close to my Quad core desktop.
-Good balance of battery vs power, seems to be able to get 5-6 hours with normal use. The SSD does improve battery life. Choose an i3 if you want more mobility/battery life or an i7/dedicated video if you want more power.
-Win 7 Pro - Will be using this as primary comp for awhile so needed Pro. If you don't need Pro you should be able to save approx $100 on model with similar/same specs but running Windows 7 Home.
-Intel 80GB SSD scores hard-disk WEI 7.5! on this HP, on previous desktop same SSD was 7.2.
-14 inch screen is good size, did not want anything bigger which takes away professional/sleek look. 13.3 screen size would also be perfect, especially if siding on the mobility side.

This review is for HP Pavilion dm4-1277sb 14-Inch Notebook PC - Silver.

Just received this laptop last week. It's very nice and light. Setting it up was easy, got it up and running, surfing the web in no time. Speakers and sound are superb, no problem at all. The display is nice, but color seems a bit washed out, even after playing with the appropriate settings. The glossy screen is also a bit distracting.

The fingerprint recognition application is very good, allowing you to login to the system without having to type your password. Also, it can be used with your favorite browser for quick and easy log in to web sites. However, I have had problems using it with Firefox, as it crashes the browser when logging in to Gmail and Netflix.

Battery life seems to be on the short side of 6 hours. The indicator in the system tray doesn't accurately report how much time you have left on the battery. For example, after a full charge, it indicates less than 2 hours left on the battery. Percentage is accurate (eg, 90%), though.

The mousepad is nice. I'd rather have the buttons separate from the pad, but that's just personal preference. The Intel video card does a good job for web video, I won't use it for heavy duty games.

It comes with "QuickWeb" which allows you to do basic web browsing without having to start Windows 7. I disabled this feature, though, because the functionality is kind of limited and Windows does start relatively quickly. Plenty of other bloatware is included.

"Recovery Manager" needed 8 DVDs!

Recall expanded: HP notebook computer battery--fire hazard
May 31, 2011 12:35 PM

Hewlett-Packard has recalled about 162,600 additional lithium-ion batteries because they can overheat and rupture, posing a fire and burn hazard. The rechargeable batteries are used in HP and Compaq notebook computers.

The first recall was May 2009, and included 54,000 batteries. The second recall was in May 2010 involving 70,000 batteries. Since the 2010 recall expansion, HP has received 40 more reports of batteries overheating and rupturing, causing seven burn injuries, one incident of smoke inhalation, and 36 cases of property damage. The computers were sold for a full year starting in July 2007 at stores nationwide, as well as online at and for $500 to $3,000. The battery packs were also sold separately for $100 to $160.

Affected notebooks include:

HP Pavilion
Compaq Presario
HP Compaq

For a full list of model numbers and barcodes see the Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice. The model number is on the bottom of the notebook, at the top of the service label.

If you own a laptop with a recalled battery, remove the battery and contact HP. If you previously checked the battery and were told it was not included in the original recall, check again. Recalled batteries will be replaced for free. In the meantime, use an AC adapter to power the laptop. For more information, visit the HP battery replacement program or call 888-202-4320 .
