I've owned the HP Pavilion DM1Z now for two weeks. During this time I've managed to use it under various conditions. I've used it as a word processor, as an MP3 player, as a video player and as a gaming unit.
This is AMD's first outing incorporating video and processor under one microchip. The result is a chip that is able to run everything without the need for more cooling and more battery use.
Currently, the Zacate e-350 uses 18 watts. This is while running at 1.6 GHz dual core and a GPU Clock of 500 MHZ. The GPU has 80 cores too, which enable it to render 1080p HD content without much hesitation.
The chipset, which is nicknamed Bobcat, is not meant to be a processing or rendering beast, but instead a chip that can combine every day processing, while also being able to be used as a multimedia device.
The processor has the capability to decode H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 with hardware acceleration. It also supports STS-HD MA bitstreaming over HDMI and Dolby TrueHD. This makes the Zacate more capable than Intel Atom processors when incorporated in a multimedia unit.
The one drawback, currently due to Adobe Flash and the Zacate architecture, is the ability to cleanly run Flash video at 1080p. Some people are experiencing lag when running video in full screen and when using the HDMI out on their screen.Read more ›
My use of the DM1 was basically limited to some light web browsing. It really did not get used much--perhaps an average of thirty minutes per day. It actually never even left the house.
As I write this, my DM1 is not quite two months old. Yesterday, I used the DM1 for a few minutes of web browsing. I powered it down, closed the lid, and walked away. A while later, I started it back up and immediately noticed some issues with the display. There was a row of dead pixels and a white rectangular block of dead pixels in the top left corner of the display, and a spot that I can only describe as looking like a black ink splatter.
Today, I called HP support to report the issue. With the laptop being not quite two months old, I figured there would be no issue getting this covered under the 1-Year Limited Warranty. The HP Support Assistant told me that I was fortunate that it was under warranty. He then put me on with a Hardware Manager, or something like that. I had to describe the issue again to this individual. The Hardware Manager told me that my issue is due to a crack on the inside of the display. He said that there might not be a visible crack on the outside of the display, but there is a crack on the inside. He also told me that this could only occur from some sort of "pressure or impact". I explained to him that the laptop was never dropped or impacted in any way. He told me that if the lid had even had any pressure applied to it, then that could have been enough to cause the internal crack.Read more ›
So the good news about the laptop is its performance. I really doesn't feel like a netbook and its ability to play 720P streaming video full screen was fantastic. It did stutter when I tried to watch 1080P streaming video full screen from YouTube, but what do you want from such a little device!
The fit and finish of the laptop is great. The keyboard is wonderful to use and I really liked the quality of the plastic used throughout.
OK, now for the bad news. The main issue I had with the laptop was the high gloss screen. If you only use this indoors in dim light then you'll be fine. But when I tried to use it in an office environment under florescent lights all I saw was reflections from the lights. If I tried to tilt the screen to get rid of the reflections then the screen became difficult to see well. This really became a show stopper for me and ultimately made me call HP to return the laptop.
Others have mentioned the almost always on fan - it's a bit annoying but I could have lived with that. The only other issue I had was with its weight. Given how small the laptop is you'd expect it to weight very little just like similar sized netbooks. It feels more like a regular value-priced laptop. Again this was something I noticed but was willing to live with if it wasn't for the screen.
I really wanted to like this little guy, but on Monday it goes back to hp...nice thing about that is they picked up the return shipping costs. I'll give them high marks for customer service!
