The HP Pavilion dm3t has been on the market for a while now, but it has quickly become HP's most popular 13-inch laptop competing against more expensive notebooks like the 13-inch Apple MacBook. Is this laptop with a Core i3 processor and Intel integrated graphics a good purchase?
Our HP Pavilion dm3 (dm3t) features the following specifications:
HP updated the Pavilion dm3 series late last year with a new low-voltage Intel Core i3 processor and a fresh design with a new cooling system designed to make the notebook more "lap friendly." Not only is this 13-inch laptop coolerf to the touch, but it looks cooler than the previous generation of the dm3. In short order this notebook became the trend setter for HP's consumer notebook line as the HP Pavilion dm1z and the the HP Mini line of netbooks were designed with a similar external appearance.
Ports and Features
Port selection on the HP Pavilion dm3t is pretty standard without any surprises. HP gives you two standard USB 2.0 ports, one combo eSATA/USB 2.0 port, HDMI-out, VGA, Gigabit LAN (hidden behind a rubber door), and two audio jacks for headphones and a microphone. It also features a SDHC-card slot for loading images off your camera while traveling or expanding your available storage. Once again, the only port that's missing here is a USB 3.0 port or an ExpressCard slot. Here is a quick tour around the new Pavilion dm3:
