Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
About 2 years ago I was looking for an ultra portable Windows laptop with this wish list (in order of importance):

Portability - I needed it to come with me at a moment's notice
Computing muscle - as a software architect and teacher, it was important that the laptop keep up with my demands
Large screen - I figured 13.3" @ 1366x768 was the absolute minimum for my needs
Usable touch pad - as I rely exclusively on the built-in touch pad
Extended battery life - at least 4 hours.

After a lot of research, and a bad experience with a Toshiba T135-S1310, I settled on the Lenovo Ideapad U-450P, and raved about it here on Amazon. Unfortunately, the devil's bargain was to trade off computing muscle (it used Intel's CULV SU7300) in return for portability and battery life.

Fast forward 2 years, and I can finally check off "all of the above" with the DM4!

1. At just over 4 lbs, this is truly portable.
2. Its 3rd generation i5 chip makes it capable of chewing through serious business software.
3. Its 14" screen @ 1600x900 resolution is generously large, with a gorgeous reflection-free matte finish.
4. Its touch pad is sensitive and accurate.
5. Decent battery life (Rated: 7.5 hours. Actual, under normal operation, is about 5 hours.)

Other key features?
#############

1. Cold to running in an amazing 30 seconds! Up from standby in under 5 seconds! (Really.)

2. Great computing horsepower for tasks such as running MS Office 2010, or Adobe's LR4/PSE. Again, the startup time with these applications is simply amazing.

3. Awesome ergonomics.

I have had my Beats Edition HP for about six months now. For the most part I have been very pleased with it. It's a nice compromise between thinner, newer 'Ultrabook' style computers and the older behemoths that are still around.

Pros:
The backlit keyboard is great and a must since everything is black.
Better than average audio without external speakers.
Having a built in optical drive.
Cosmetics - it's unique looking.
Low to non existent fan noise - very much appreciated.
Fast boot up and decent battery life.

Cons:
Had to have my touchpad replaced under warranty.
Should have been designed with a fixed optical drive. Opening the tray is a hassle.
Easily Shows fingerpints from handling.
Hinges on case seem a little flimsy and you worry if they will last.
Wish it was a little thinner and a little lighter.
Battery life is really closer to about 4 hours than what is claimed.
Offshore tech support, though they were fine when my touchpad stopped working.

I would highy recommend this model.

ADDENDUM: How ironic! I just gave this laptop a 4 star rating this morning from my MacBook Air and then opened my HP to use it and much to my surprise it had a large black blotch in the screen. I never dropped it. I didn't close it with anything in between it. I did NOTHING out of the ordinary - I simply plugged it in last night to recharge it and then reopened it this afternoon to use it again.

Then I called HP tech support and this time, unlike the trackpad needing replaced, it has been a complete nightmare. All of these so called support people are in India to begin with. First off they have no method to pull up your records by your phone number. Why?

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
All in all, we are very pleased with this laptop. My wife's vision is getting a little worse as she is getting older and is buying reading glasses in order to see clearly. However, this laptop features red backlit keys that are so easy to read that she has no need for them while working on Girl Scouts, etc.

All of the computer specs are clearly labeled in the product description above (i5 processor, 500 GB hard drive, etc.), so all that's really left to discuss is how well this laptop operates. In a word, fast. Even for my Alienware i7 quad core, this laptop takes its run for the money to startup and shut down VERY quickly and that is after some fairly heavy browsing, installation of Microsoft Office 2010, a formal installation of Norton Internet Security 2012, etc. With all the little, obsequious add-ons that proliferate just about every web page these days, this laptop takes it all in stride and works quite well. Even with the 5400 rpm drive (a disappointment, but understandable in terms of keeping power/heat low), it is quite responsive and there is no noticeable lag in any of the applications that we open.

Battery life is impressive, although I imagine that you are going to be running at a very lowly lit screen and downgraded video performance to get the full 7.5 hours of battery life advertised. With more typical settings, the battery life still shows an excess of 5 hours which is plenty good for our use.

Even if you don't have Microsoft Office 2010 (not included--we have our own license), you can still view your e-mail via the embedded Windows Live Mail feature. Although not as full-featured as Outlook (i.e., calendar, etc.), it will allow you to send/receive e-mail without additional expense.
