As compared with my Asus UL30a-X5, this notebook is similarly priced and has nearly identical specs. I purchsed the DM3 due to a local sale, and with a trade in on an old notebook it ran 450. The differences between the Asus and this notebook are as follows. The Asus is a square, flat, brushed metal finish while the HP has an elegant curved style with a design etched into it...win: HP. The Asus weighs 3.75lbs and has slightly longer battery life, the HP weighs 4.2lbs....win: Asus. Both with 1.3 Ghz dual core processors (although Asus is Intel C2D, HP is AMD X2 K325), both have 4ghz RAM, both have full versions of Win7 Home 64-bit, both have 13.3" LED LCDs...tie. Unexpectedly, the HP has a marginally faster 320gb 7200rpm HDD, the Asus a larger 5400rpm 500gb...winner=your choice.
Functionality of the notebook is great, as long as you're not trying to do processor-intensive tasks. Nice clear, bright screen. Boots up quickly, and the initial screen gives you a choice of a proprietary Linux-like web browser-email-picture viewer-music-video player OR Win7. The 4gb ram allows quite a bit of multitasking without a noticable decline in performance.Read more ›
* Small and lightweight. This thing is perfect for traveling as it's got a minimal footprint.
* Fast booting. With Windows 7 (love it!) and after some de-crudding of the bloatware, this thing boots up and is online in less than 2 minutes. Wow!
* Keyboard feel. The chiclet style keys are very pleasant to type on.
* Minimal fingerprints. The brushed casing hides fingers prints (though you still get them around the edge of the screen).
* Beautiful screen. Very rich, lush colors and a decent resolution to work in.
* Ports a plenty. You've got about every port most people need.
* Attractive. The brushed metal body and shiny chrome touchpad (works pretty well) combine for a handsome look.
* Right-side exhaust. The design was obvious - people using this small laptop will only use the touchpad so don't worry where the hot air comes out. If you like to use a wireless mouse (like me) and are right-handed (like me), get ready to have a warm right hand if you place it in the wrong location.
* Palm rest heater. After about an hour of any heavy graphics use, the palm area (especially on the left side of the touch pad, gets pretty warm. Not burning hot but noticeably warm (maybe comfortably warm if you're cold all the time). Some may find this too warm depending on how sensitive they are to temperature.
* Keyboard learning curve. Though the keys have a very nice feel, one in particular is oddly sized - the caps lock. It's big and it sits above the left shift (which I use a lot) and I'm often hitting it.Read more ›
I had tried a Toshiba laptop previously and had trouble loading ubuntu. I was able to return that computer. I checked more carefully into this one before purchase. It's for my spouse and she thinks it's pretty with the etched wave design on its top.
The Hewlett-Packard sales department is not helpful to linux users, but some independent sites post model compatibilities. I found another model in the series listed as compatible and decided to take a chance. Everything worked out well.
I followed a how-to on ubuntu forums about installing on another laptop. The key was probably installing Windows 7 first, then using Windows to shrink its own partition. It will only shrink to about 50% of the original size, but that's enough for a robust installation of ubuntu. I used a plug-in optical drive with an ubuntu 10.04 desktop amd64 live cd, but a properly prepared jump drive should also work.
I use ubuntu as the default operating system. It starts up and shuts down in about half the time of Windows 7 (though Windows time improved after I wiped out much of the ad-ware that it comes with--HP is not as bad as some in this respect). I keep Windows for Windows games. Ubuntu comes with the Firefox browser, open office, and a panoply of free software (but no intrusive ad-ware).
The only hardware I found that doesn't work under ubuntu is the touch pad on-off switch--not a deal-breaker.
I haven't timed the battery life, but reports say ubuntu does about as well as Windows in power management.
